Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1989

En Magnum. Cork came out in 100+ little pieces, but thankfully no cork taint, this shows a little Brett, but other than a mid-shoulder fill level and obvious signs of weepage, pristine redfruits and impeccable balance, everything that the 1989 has been showing for at least 10 years, outstanding!! — 20 days ago

@Severn Goodwin, I do have 3 more magnums, and 10-12 more 5ths of this one, they were cheap and I LOVE Beaucastel. Early on, the 1990 Beau would always best the 1989 Beau blind, but the clear superiority of the 1989!has been evident for the past 10+ years!!

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes-du-Rhone Red Rhone Blend 2016

Lovely Cotes du Rhone blend of Grenache (40%), Mourvèdre (30%), Syrah (20%) and Cinsault (10%). Dark (almost purple) color. Nose is full of cooked red and black berry fruit, violets and baking spices. Cooked red fruits, blackberries and plums dominate the pallet. The baking spices are also present on the finish. Ample acidity and tannins. Plush and generous. Velvety smooth. Excellent! — 2 months ago

Famille Geoffray Côte de Brouilly Gamay 2021

The nose on this is awesome- Like sticking your nose into a big bowl of macerated ripe and overripe cherries, freshly dried tabacco and Dr. Pepper... Beautiful deep garnet with some magenta.
Fresh, balanced sharp acid but with rounded edges, this is a wine that you can drink a bottle of by yourself.
I'm enjoying this more at room temp than on the cooled as some Beaujolais is served.

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes-du-Rhone White Rhone Blend 2015

Amazingly delicious! Concentration, balanced fruitiness, sweetness, spiciness. Matured blue black fruits, a bit cherry. Is that just CDR? 2015 vintage and 7 years would make it like that. 2015 @1100, wine plus -, 221101-221114 — a month ago

La Gille Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2011

These wines really do change vintage to vintage, but tasting this one 11 years after the vintage was a treat... On the nose, this is strawberry and rhubarb pie, but really that might be better explained as a port nose... On the palate, that stewed up red fruit really feels more integrated than when tasted young... Gone is the punch of power, but replacing it is a stewiness that feels very comforting... Canned cherries, strawberries (maybe even some green pickled ones)... Yup, the more I think about this one, the picked green strawberry note becomes more and more prominent to me... That's what I'm tasting! So good... While I think I still enjoy Gigondas a little younger and more raw, where the tannins fall here has some perfection to it... Not chewy, but satisfying... The finish here is still long, but now more strawberry than cherry when more youthful... Great! — a month ago
