Domaine de la Croix des Vignes Saint Joseph Syrah 2018

Bright magenta color. Bramble berry pie, smoked game, and peppercorn. Suave with a masculine feel. Ample tannin supports blue and black fruits. Super solid. — 7 days ago

Le Charmois Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2012

Ripe, relaxed yet maintained sufficient tension. The kind of Chardonnay that pleases neophytes and connoisseurs alike. — 8 days ago

Paul Lato

Space Cadet Syrah Grenache 2018

From Paul Lato, the 2018 is 80% syrah and 20% grenache. Really closed out of the gate and never really opened up over the course of an hour or two in the glass, we put the cork back in and put it in the fridge. Tried it again after a couple of days. Unbelievable difference - really terrific. I’d suggest a multi-hour decant on this one or forget about it for a couple of years. Either of these approaches and you’ll be treated to another great wine from Paul Lato. — 15 days ago

Romanee Saint-Vivant Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Slightly disappointing as I was expecting a bit more from a great vintage and grand cru. My bad luck with 2005s continues - either too closed or overripe... this felt like a bit of both. — a month ago

Château Langoa Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

A blend of 54% Cab Sauv, 38% Merlot & 8% Cab Franc, aged in 60% new oak, deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits, floral and sweet notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry, currents and cacao with notes of violets, oak and spice. Fine tannins, still tight and a little gritty, long finish ending with fruit, floral and mineral spice. — 5 days ago

Domaine Bernard Gripa

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2015

Nose is graphite.

Palate - silky texture. Graphite blended with blackberry.

Let’s see how this develops.

As this opens it’s definitely a graphite blackberry melange kind of thing. Good grip. Quite focused. Cerebral in a sense. Like this silky almost lilac extract on the palate.

If I had this blind I’d guess st jo on the nose and cote rotie on the palate.

Bought from fass selections

Saint-Romain Chardonnay 2016

Tasted blind, 4 wines, 3 varietals. The 3 of us had the same ranking in terms if the wines, this one came in no 1 for all of us. Expressive typical Chard nose of lemon, touch of butter, slight oak but nothing disturbing, nice acidity, tense and saline, mineral, just enough roundness to make it a good balance, excellent and great level for a St-Romain. 90-91

Dégustation à l’aveugle, 4 vins pour 3 cépages afin de trouver le cépage. Tout le monde a eu le même classement sur les 4 vins, No 1 pour les 3 dégustateurs. Un nez typé Chardo, assez expressif, citron, touche boisée, tendu et salin, minéral avec juste assez de rondeur et richesse, quel bel équilibre, très beau niveau. 90-91

Château Calon-Ségur

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

People say this was done with lots of Merlot. Maybe. To us it tastes much more like Cabernet. Starting to drink well, with mostly primary black fruit notes, hint of secondary notes, very fresh and balanced, with all the soil signature of St Estephe. Has shed most of the year’s tannins and is civilized and pleasurable drinking now but really no rush. Cool stuff done the old fashion way. — 11 days ago
