La Mouline Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2006

Une très bonne Mouline, pas une grande. Le vin semble être sur la retenue et ce toute la soirée. Des notes de viandes fumées, de poivre blanc, légèrement vanillée. Une longueur habituelle à Guigal. — 23 days ago

Granit Mineral Selection Monção e Melgaço Alvarinho 2019

This is an extraordinary wine from the prestigious Monção e Melgaço sub-region of Vinho Verde. Not at all hyperbole to say that this wine shows like a 1er cru Chablis—wow. I’m laying down a case for ten years (very age worthy) — 9 days ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2003

Spectacular to watch this wine evolve. Opened 2 hours before and evolved nicely. Lots of tannins . But well integrated Jo t of black pepper , dried rose petals and tobacco on the nose. Well halved with a long finish. A low 13% alcohol - really lovely. Will drink well for another decade at least. #guigal - c’est un vin bien expresse- bravo — 3 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2016

The nose shows syrah usual traits : pepper, blackberry, there is even a bit of bacon in there! Definitely northern Rhone red. The palate is well balanced, there is a good acid drive in there, there is a bright fruit, some width, some matter, a good mouthfeel, lively tannins with a drying effect in mid palate and a long finish with fruit and pepper and that drying effect for quite a long time. I have been missing that wine for as long as we moved to Poland. I used to buy it from the grocery store downstairs back in Paris for 8 euro. I was so psyched to find it in the Wine shop downstairs here in Warsaw! As always, this is a solid CDR. — 9 days ago

La Landonne Côte-Rotie Syrah 1983

Dark scarlet tawny. Mostly opaque. Sweet, fruit forward nose. Notes of black cherry, blueberries, graphite, some menthol and a little smoke. Gobs of fruit in the mouth. Some cranberries and notes of smoked meat evolve as it gains air and opens up. Very masculine in the mouth at first, angular with powerful structure. With four hours of air it becomes silky and smooth. This was luscious, and bottles like this have years of fun in front of it. — 15 days ago

La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1990

Bright scarlet center with tawny rims. Huge nose. Notes of black cherries, smoked meats, spice, menthol and cool slate stone. Silky in the mouth. Velvet glove. Got better and better with air. Long finish. In a perfect spot right now at age 30. — 10 days ago

Re: oak, it was all nicely integrated and seamless. Great juice.

Cuvée E Pinot Noir 2014

Nose went through an interesting evolution as it opened up. Notes of strawberry, violets, top soil, baking spice and a touch of manure.

Ripe and fruity but elegant. Strawberry, cranberry, touch of oaky creaminess, with some floral notes. Good acidity, smooth tannins, and a touch of heat.

Really well made stuff. Really enjoyed the complex nose and balanced palate.

Vinificacao Natural Vinho Branco Alvarinho

Doftar underbart med petroleum, päron och annat god frukt. Smakar salt. Svårdrucket jämfört med andra albarinos. Men gott till mat. Ändå inte ett återköp — 10 days ago
