Les Combettes Côtes du Brian Marselan 2016

Dark ruby color. A wine I haven’t had. Apparently a combo of Grenache and Cabernet. Strong strawberry nose. A nice palate of dark cherry strawberry tobacco. Complex long finish. — a month ago

I drink a lot of White Rhone and that’s been one of my favorite things about the past 9+ years of Fass Selections. I didn’t before and now I realize that I have a passion for them. Nice to find a new wine category late in your wine drinking life one loves. Anyway this is beautiful. Nose is ripe yellow fruits, beeswax, gorgeous compactness and minerals. It’s really refined as well. Palate is ripe, unctuous and juicy but I’ll admit off the bat it’s showing it’s alcohol but it will integrate. It’s only 13% but that’s why you let white Rhone breathe. For the alcohol to integrate. Luscious and juicy. Deep but I’ll be back for when it’s integrated. It’s a solid 9.0 now but the finish, texture and depth suggest this will be wonderful in an hour.

9.0 to 9.2. Alcohol almost fully integrated in 10 minutes. Custardy now. Great length and terrific minerals.

La 50/50 Côtes du Brian Carignane-Cinsault Blend 2011


First night lees impressive than two days later in Eto. First blush of purple color and bright red fruits, sour cherries, more new world than old but later it flipped. Excellent with grilled meats in either case. Interesting. — 3 months ago

Condrieu Viognier 2018

Muted stage but unfurled over the evening. Opulence tempered by minerality. Free of flab. Alcohol well-integrated. Tropical fruits, marzipan. Florals. Also - condrieu pairs amazingly with BBQ sauce (enjoyed with sweetbreads) 😍 @Lyle Fass — 3 months ago

Sweetbreads! Best I ever had was at a now defunct restaurant in Saratoga (NY), tempura fried...

This was a gorgeous condrieu which was like an even more restrained version of Andre Perret Chery or Domaine Du Tunnel. The blissful opposite of Guigal's Doriane - finally a condrieu that finds its place at the dinner table (next to sweetbreads and BBQ sauce) and not just at cocktail hour.
