Excellent balance of old and new world syrah with a definitely funky back bone. Punching way above its price point. Great value. — 10 days ago

Côtes -du-Rhone Syrah 2016

Before decanting. Colour - dark ruby red, very little light passing through. On the nose, a lot of plums, black currants, oak, smoke and a lot of tannins on the nose. Taste - very oaky, fruity with plums, lots of black currants. Akin to a winter night in a cabin log with a fireplace alit. — 23 days ago

After decanting - on the nose it’s full of black currants, as if it’s a hot summer day and rongy forced me to go to garsons and when sweltering in the heat, we walked over to the black currants field and felt a breeze and caught a whiff of the black currants in the heat. Taste - a lot of oak and tannins but smooth and easy to drink. A lot of black currant, some herbs and with a little taste of spices at the end. Long lasting after taste.

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1994

Deep reddish tawny. Notes of cherry, herbs, cranberries, red licorice, some white pepper and a little kirsch. Pleasant in the mouth. While not overly rich as you would like to see with La Turque in a great vintage, the fruit is still nicely present with a decent spine of structure and acidity. — 19 days ago

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2016

Opened way too early. Super tight with the tannins and acidity overpowering they fruit a bit. It took a while for some of the smoky and spice flavors to unfurl. Bold black fruit core. Will have to revisit in a couple of year to let things settle down. — a month ago

Abts E de Riesling 2017

Admittedly not the best showing of the 17' Abtserde, although still delicious. I suspect I may have hurt it somewhere along the line. Incredibly tight when first opened, so I left it to air in the bottle for the next couple of hours (3-4 hours?). Developed a slightly honeyed note in the back palate when I came back to it. Not like it was bad, but it's not something I would attribute to riesling this young, especially from KP. The nose flourished though - very floral with ripe citrus notes, fresh herbs, and earthy rocks (reminiscent of the vineyard itself). The palate was powerful and incredibly saline. Huge extract, balanced by KP's typical precision. I felt the finish was marred by the honeyed note, although still long. Left a little bit in the bottle to try the next day - fruit notes gone by then, replaced by waxy and overwhelmingly saline notes. Good wine, but could be better. — 10 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2013

E Guigal produces fine Rhône wines, had this a while ago, tried again. Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruit and earthy spice. On the palate flavors of black cherry and blackberry fruit, cacao, leather and earth notes, vivid acidity on well structured frame. Fine tannins, lingering finish ending with fruit character. Good now will cellar well, a bargain compared to its Hermitage neighbors. — 14 days ago
