Mousset family has managed Clos Saint Michel for more than 6 decades, in Southern Rhône they have been active in wine for Much longer. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits and sweet spicy notes. On the palate black cherry and ripe blackberry flavors with vanilla and black pepper spice. Big firm tannins, nicely integrated, good balanced, long finish with solid ending.

Excellent showing, nutty, yellow fruit and fresh bread tones. — 8 days ago
Bright, lifted, focused and almost lacey in its feel. Great charm and drinkability and true to place and vintage. Of course the hallmark crisp red fruits followed by a very mineral backbone. There’s lots of sous bois coming through, turned earth, beets, wet leaves, underbrush, forest floor, licorice and flowers. — 4 days ago
Always a great dinner. First course, Butternut Squash Soup. I almost texted Chef Hedy to suggest this dish but, did not! So happy it’s on menu.
The Louis Michel has started to round (in 375ml) out, add some weight and blend so well with the soup.
Round, phat, slightly honeyed citrus surrounded by caramel, buttery, richness with soft allspice seasoning. Incredible!
Chef Hedy has made this before but, she really out did herself tonight with her BSS.
If you live in & around the greater Bay Area, you owe to yourself to attend one of the dinners Hedy holds 4-5 times a year. Not only is the food amongst the very best we had, the people that attend and environment are as equally good. Find Hedy @Plate&Bottle — 11 days ago
