Cornas Syrah 2001

The 2001 A. Clape Cornas is simply marvelous, showing off this enticing vintage in the Northern Rhône. The tertiary notes are starting to hit their stride with wild mushroom and damp earth tones that collide with red currants, bulls blood and iodine tones that all shine together in the glass. Still showing a strong core of acidity and dark fruits, the silky texture entices as leather, peat moss, and smoked meats all impress on the expressive palate. Fantastic now, this beautiful 2001 Cornas still has plenty of life left. Drink 2019-2027- 94 — 3 days ago

Wanted to open up something to thank Pierre and Clare. Herbaceous, dark red fruit, lightly smoked meat and floral notes on the nose. Black licorice and peppery spice on the palate. This guy is still going strong. 100% Syrah 100% whole cluster. — 14 days ago

Château de la Négly

La Falaise Coteaux du Languedoc La Clape Red Blend 2014

Deep Ruby with medium+ aromas of jammy ripe fruit with sweet oaky spice. On the palate ripe blackberry and coconut flavors adding vanilla oak with yeasty bread notes. Vivid acidity, full body with slight alcohol burn, full ripe tannins on long finish ending with smoky oak and vanilla spice. Great now but some bottle age will add some benefit. Tasting Sample. — 3 months ago

Le Vin des Amis Syrah 2016

Deep Ruby in colour with a youthful purple rim. Latent aromas Latent palate. Opened this too early. Hard to agree with Richard Hemming MW’s Drinking Window of 2017-2020. Ripe fruit - Full bodied - Barb thought it was Barossa. Ripe plums and blackfruits with slightly savoury Tannins. Very self contained needing more cellaring time to shine. After a couple of hours and with vigorous swirling came liquorice notes. — 2 months ago

Saint Joseph Syrah

This was incredible and was brimming with personality and life. It tasted like a hypothetical blend of Allemand, Gonon and Clape. A rare treat - 2005 — 4 months ago
