Paul Jaboulet Aîné

Paul Jaboulet Aîné Hermitage La Petite Chapelle 2009

Meaty savoury notes on nose. Palate is very savoury - hardly any fruit characteristics left. In hindsight not meant for the long haul and possibly better to have drunk a few years ago to get more fruit input. Medium bodied palate with M minus intensity. Usually sells for about a third of La Chapelle. — 16 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

Cuvée Prestige St. Péray White Rhône Blend 2017

Maestro of St Péray! Complexity, length, energy and precision, things most don’t associate w/ Marsanne and Roussane. Ripe and baked yellow orchard fruits, orange, almond cream, marzipan, coconut, sea salt, crushed rock, acacia, jasmine. Plenty of gras but there’s so much zip from front to back, salty mineral goodness all the way. — 2 days ago

Coteaux Cornas Syrah 2007

This is beautiful from the very first pour. Medium acidity, beautiful color. A lot going on here. Hint of pepper with soft fruit with a firm texture. This has many years left in the tank — 6 days ago

Rene Rostaing

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1998

Reddish tawny and translucent. Thinner and brighter than the older Barolo next to it. Great C-R nose. Notes of granite stone, earth, black cherry, cranberry, a little bacon, blueberries and some old wood. Vibrant in the mouth. Still has young fruit impression, tannins are soft and acidity still gives some pucker. Great future ahead for bottles like this. — a day ago
