JM Cazes

Domaine De L'Ostal Estibals Minervois Syrah Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Domaine de l'Ostal is owned by famous Bordeaux winemaker Jean-Michel Cazes (Pauillac Cru Classé Château Lynch-Bages and more recently Haut-Batailley). We can reasonably expect him to not put his name on a bad wine, and this Estobal (the second wine of the estate, the top wine being labeled Domaine de l'Ostal Grand Vin) surely delivers. Dark red. Intense perfume of blackberry jam, rosemary and dried flowers. Mouthfilling layered jammy fruit, with good acidity, smooth tannin and good spicy length. — 9 months ago

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

La Truffière Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Chardonnay 2001

Great to see that the white wines from JM Boillot still stand “straight” after almost 20 years. Still remarkably fresh ! — a year ago

Klipsun Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Yum! But it’s a little stemmy and underwhelming for what it could be. Cherry and cola notes are evident, sweet but not as deep as it could be. — 2 years ago

Domaine des Pierres Sèches Sylvain Gauthier

St. Joseph Cuvee 1930 Syrah 2019

Lyle Fass
9.8

The new elite high end bling bling cuvee from Sylvain Gauthier of Domaine des Pierres Seches. I’ve been waiting to taste this for a long time. What a nose. Cote Rotie like! Super dark florals, granite, wet clay, dark blackberry fruit. Lifted, complex and super elegant. A nose that stops you in your tracks. White pepper. Violets. My goodness the florals are like elite Cote Rotie. Just stunning. Best nose on a Gauthier wine ever. Endless depth on the palate and big but so so elegant. Wow this is special. Sappy, dense, concentrated and so peppery. Amazing and I mean amazing freshness. Finish is so delineated, gamey and meaty. Concentrated but so lightweight! Wow. The texture here is crazy. This has endless and uncommon depth. Unreal length. This is super super elite wine. Wow, I am speechless. This is one of the best St. Jo’s I’ve ever had. Remarkable in every way. Big tannins that are so sweet and so ripe. This wine has big time dark energy but man is it good. Lurid. Nose starts to develop black and green olive after some air. Wow the granitic freshness that develops after air is something else. Crazy tiny berry fruit intensity. Just explosive. A wine of contemplation and also way too young. This could be as high as 9.9 with age. I’ll be back as it develops.

After many hours this just gets better and better. The nose smells like a JM stephan Cote rotie. Citrus rind, tree bark, spices, violets. Florals. Just an amazing wine. Complex granite and forest floor. Concentrated and so elegant, with great power and structure. Gets to every nook and cranny. Vivid olives on the mid and backend. Abundant yet ripe tannins. A magical bottle of wine.

9.7 to 9.8 overnight. Just transcendent.

Les Passetemps Santenay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Red berries, a touch of cinnamon and spices. Fresh, elegant, lots of energy, nice soft tannins, well balanced, the most approchable and less powerful of all the premier crus from JM Vincent, very good, drank in a flash. 89-90

Fruits, rouges, touche de canelle. Frais, fin, énergique avec des tannins présents mais tellement approchables en ce moment, bien équilibré et le moins puissant des premiers crus de ce domaine, très bon, ça se boit tout seul. 89-90

The red mtn fruit is dominant here, bright red fruit, intense minerality, and grippy tannins. Ripe cherry, figs, and a hint of currants... yum! — a year ago
