Empreintes Cornas Syrah 2018

Color of saturated purple, quite enticing, and a bit bubbly. Nice legs. Nose of dark fruits, like dark skin ripe grapes, blackberry, a bit minty, a bit tobacco leaves, hint of cocoa, and indeed some citrus. Taste is mouthful and follows the nose, with addition of refined sweetness, and some bitter graphite. Aftertaste is also silky. Good Syrah except a bit overpowering bitterness. — 20 days ago

St. Joseph Blanc Marsanne Roussanne 2016

Lyle Fass

This is St. Joseph Blanc. 50% Marsanne/50% Roussanne. Gorgeously mineral and wispy nose. Skoche of honey. Some stone fruits. Very mineral nose. Very clean, pure and precise. Terrific driving minerality and wonderful persistence. Lovely wine. Good push of fruit on the finish and great texture as well. Incredibly well made. — 3 years ago

Premices Cornas Syrah 2018

Color of dark purple with bloody tone on the rim. Nice legs. Nose of dark fruits plus ripe cranberries, some strawberry ice cream, some fermented cabbage, a bit cocoa, and a bit spicy in the nasal cavity. Taste follows then nose with addition of zesty note, minty mixed wok really mellow tannins. Smooth and some more ripe grapes. Aftertaste shows some more ripe grapes, vanilla, and hint of alcohol strength. On par. — 2 months ago

Lautaret St. Joseph Syrah 2015

Stellar Syrah from wonderful growers. Dark red fruits and integrated tannins allow this gem to shine with mouth coating flavors and aromatics. Still quite young and it has many more years of pleasure for those who can wait. A great treat for everyone.🍷🍷 — 2 months ago

Saint-Péray Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2016

Rich, juicy, with a beautiful straw almost golden color in the glass. Pineapple, mango, minerality, medium+ acidity. I poured one glass out of this to enjoy tonight, I think it could be more enjoyable tomorrow. I’ll update my review. Update: the wine is even better the next day, more earth-like minerality with a focus on the fruit that is much clearer. This would be a great wine with 5-7+ years under its vintage. — 2 years ago
