J.L. Chave Sélection Farconnet Hermitage Syrah 2011

Rad already. It’s baby’s first Hermitage and baby is no longer in the corner! She’s dancing in the...well her home. To Sia. I adore Syrah and although I bet in a few years this will take on some meatier old leather notes and maybe the tannins will knit together more I like it a little rough. This wine is sexy stubble. It’s roughing me a little at the same time as handing me toast with blackberry jam and an iced mocha. Meow Hermitage. — 12 days ago

I find that at the superficial level, metaphor is funny, but at a deeper level, there is often a kernel of truth...

@Ron R that’s why it’s funny I guess—I strongly believe: in truth, comedy!

Ermitage Cuvée Cathelin Hermitage Syrah 2003

Bit of a struggle with the cork and finding a decanter, but wine was sublime—one of the top few I’ve ever tasted. No better way to spend a 50th birthday than drinking this at lunch in Hermitage. Thanks, Dave (nice teeth)! — 6 days ago

Hermitage Syrah 2002

Classy to the core. Chave never lets me down. Ripe red fleshy goodness and elegant lines. Maybe not as much punch as the 2000 or 2003 but it was damn good today. — 3 days ago

J.L. Chave Sélection Hermitage Blanche Marsanne Roussanne 2012

barnyard, wet forest, manure funk on the nose that stuck with it after an hour or so. but it’s still so good. I’m just a little thrown by the nose. yet it is very well balanced. 2012 was a balanced stone/sun vintage I believe. — 7 days ago
