St. Péray Blanc Marsanne 2016

I love Clape and this wine is impressive for what it is, but it’s not my style. For me, it’s slightly oxidized just to the point of not being refreshing. Then again, even with low acidity, it manages to linger and linger on the palate. For the nose, nuts and dried white flowers galore. — 5 days ago

Réserve Auguste Favier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010

The 2010 Auguste Favier Reserve is drop dead gorgeous with it’s fresh and bright ripe strawberry tones, giving way to zesty red florals, sweet smoke, white pepper and dusty cedar.  It’s velvety on the palate, yet not weighty, instead poised and remarkably fresh, as red and blue fruits cascade across the senses over a core of brisk acids, leaving a mineral twang with savory spiciness. The finish is long and structured, with youthful tannins still holding something back for the years to come, yet still so alive and focused on purity of fruit.  The 2010 is worth checking in on, but don’t forget to keep a stash in your cellar for at least the next five to ten years. Wow. — 2 months ago

Cornas Syrah 2011

This is terrific. A little young but showing it’s elegance now. In 5 yrs this is a knockout. The tannins are just waning now and the fruit is subdued by the earthy, vegetal nature of this wine. I’m smitten. — 10 days ago

Le Vin des Amis Syrah 2018

Typical Clape nose brooding, smoky dark fruits. Doesn’t have the complexity of his big wines but for a weektime occasion it’s great. Needs some time to open up. Great qpr. — 9 days ago

Renaissance Cornas Syrah 2010

Was a bit closed. Took 3 hours to open up. Lovely classic Rhine style. Nice chocolate and tobacco on the nose. A bit tannic and good alcohol still evident. But nice. Will wait on the rest as this will evolve over the next 3-5 years. — 2 months ago
