Blind Rhône’s from Saturday night. This was my WOTN. A bold grainy tannin’d beauty. Deep garnet with some bricking and bursting with dark fruit, wild game, leather and iron. This was far and away the standout for me in a superb grouping of 8 wines, 6 of which were exemplary examples of their region. Alas, it ranked as wine #2 in the first group of 4. 🤷🏻♂️ — a month ago

Rojo oscuro y lágrima muy densa.Frutos rojos y negros en nariz. En boca suave con taninos equilibrados. Un pequeño amargor al final que desaparece al rato de estar aireado. Buen vino para empezar con los franceses que he comprado.

Medium to rich crimson in colour. Aromas of Roses earth and cherries. On the palate savoury with very good intensity and length. Light to medium weight. A deserving Premier Cru from the great commune of Vosne Romanee. With time in decanter a touch of mushroom on the nose with lovely red fruit/sappiness on palate. Allen Meadows says the reference standard in Les Beaux Monts is Leroy but like all Cuvées from Leroy at eye watering prices. — a month ago
I tell ya what, this is a lot more interesting than the Roussanne that we drank a couple weeks ago from Paso Robles. This has the acid that the Villa Creek lacked. There was a nice mix of slightly underripe pineapple, orange peel and honeysuckle. This probably needs a few years in the bottle to be honest. Still, pretty enjoyable and I’ll definitely keep this on my shortlist of northern Rhône whites to keep an eye out for. — a month ago
