La Landonne Côte-Rotie Syrah 1997

Tawny and almost opaque. Masculine heavy nose. Notes of black fruit, earth and iron. Rich and silky. Needed 4+ hours of air to open up. Light finish maybe representative of the vintage. Pretty good. No need to hurry on these. — 7 days ago

Condrieu Viognier

Notes of pear and pear skins on nose and palate. Rich and unctuous with hints of honey. Flavours fill every corner of the mouth. Low acid. Great match with smoked cod No point in further cellaring - delicious now. Will look to drink more Condrieu in the future - love Viognier. — 22 days ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2004

What a bottle to share with the one and only Fred Dame. Medium bodied, mushrooms, lightly smoked meat, dried figs, light touch of white pepper. Special wine, very special night — a month ago

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2002

The 2002 Guigal ‘La Turque’ is the finest Rhône wine that I have sampled from this challenging vintage. Flowering issues and problems obtaining phenolic ripeness plagued the N. Rhône in 2002 but the ‘La Turque’ was not lacking in richness. Black cherry, wild blackberry and huckleberry flavors connected with shades of iron and wet stone on the palate. Fresh and vibrant, this beautiful wine is drinking brilliantly now. Drink 2019-2029- 92 — 13 days ago

Aging beautifully. This wine now has great length, fruit, complexity. It is very versatile in terms of food couplings. Love it — a month ago

E Series Chardonnay 2017

Choosing the next Downs Club White wine from 44 masked entries. Great balance between fruit and oak - the former in the peaches/stone fruit style. Very balanced. Amazing QPR selling for $15 on the Elderton web site with a LUC to the Club at under $10. My choice on the night but sadly democracy prevailed and another wine got the nod. — 14 days ago
