Mas Olivier

Faugères Mourvedre Syrah Rosé

All I could ask. Acid cuts in the dance between candied strawberries and spices. Keeping it all relentlessly fresh ans refreshing. A reel not a waltz. — 22 days ago

Domaine d'Aupilhac

Les Cocalieres Coteaux du Languedoc Montpeyroux 2017

Very precise and balanced. Syrah coming through very clearly on the second night. Clean, bright, but still a bit of sappy fruit on the finish. — 5 days ago

WNH NY, 2021.
From magnum.
Extracted to say the least. Bricking has started. Nose displayed smoke, wood, cigar box. Palate was big with olive tapenade and overripe cherries. Caught this just in time. Excellent acid profile. Always sweet and dense. This is a Rhône heavyweight for sure. 750’s from this vintage should be consumed. Mags will last, but no further improvement opportunities.
From my cellar.

Lovely! Deep dark color but with a stewed cherry and wood nose but a racy taste with great tannin and acid balancing the earthy fruits. Woman winemaker, biodynamic. Excellent — 4 days ago

Domaine Ampelhus

Muscat de Lunel

A treat I shall make no bones about it I adore a dessert wine. Provided it is high quality (and this is) it is sweet but balanced and makes me feel like I’m either on vacation I’d living out some fantasy vacation. Sexy florals aka this wine is me in a bubble bath. With wine. — 25 days ago

Château Pech-Ménel

Saint-Chinian Syrah Blend

Everything by this winery is textural perfection that speaks both to wealth and lithe limbs. Wine that knows how to be rich but not rude. Indeed it is silk and soigné — 19 days ago
