Aux Lieux-Dits Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

Hints of mint and herbs on the nose, cherry and licorice and garrigue on the tongue. A bit of alcohol burn mid palate. Forward tannins but well integrated. Nice peppery finish. — 14 days ago

Grange le Duc Bourgogne Passetoutgrains Gamay Pinot Noir 2020

Popped and poured; no formal notes. The 2020 “Grange le Duc” has some real Volnay sensibilities with lovely, elegant fruit and forest floor with a taut structure. This responded very well to air and I expect this will flesh out with some cellar time. Drinking well now with some patience and will continue to do so through 2030. — 3 months ago

Les Quatre Terres Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2021

Bright ruby red with pink rim . Quite open and juicy, fresh and enticing , red cherry , raspberry , strawberry , with just a touch of fresh cut herbs . On the palate quite ripe red fruits noted on the nose with just a hint of smokiness. Finishes clean and fresh and with good acidity , ripe fine tannin, good balance and ok length . Quaffable, moreish and nicely judged Côtes du Rhône to drink now and over the next 7-10 years . — 2 months ago

Prestige des Hautes Garrigues Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2007

2007 Rhones drying out…?
Not this one!
Wonderfully balanced and complete, this oozes luxurious notes of cassis and blackberries, classy leather, brown spices, smoked ham, pinches of black pepper and sandalwood. Juicy, fresh, classic hedonism.
Marvelous.
