Domaine De La Cendrillon

Inédite Corbières Syrah Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Inédite, Corbières rouge. Another brilliant wine from this excellent estate. From a plot named "Les Amandiers" with 30 years old vines. A blend of Syrah (50%), Grenache (35%) and Mourvèdre (15%). Aged 18 months in 20 hl and 225 l French oak. Delicate extractions and low yields lead to amazingly refined, fresh and complex wine with velvety tannins and a long spicy finish. Terrific value. Highly recommended. Abv. 14,5%. — 5 days ago

Corbières Nielluccio

2020 vintage. First vintage of rare 100% Nielluccio (Corsican name for Sangiovese) by Corbières producer Domaine de Cendrillon. Whole cluster fermentation. No added sulfites Intense perfume of wild raspberry, violets and a hint of pepper. Even at 14,5 % abv it has a certain lightness to it. Bright red fruits, crisp acidity, a nice ripe tannic bite and violets in the finish. Very good indeed. — 8 days ago

Orience Minervois Red Rhone Blend 2011

BYOB. We got invited to see Kethro perform some of his latest work at LOW END. Popped and poured into Stainless Steel YETI tumblers while me got drenched in fresh beats. The 2011 “Cuvée Orience”, while certainly showing secondary and tertiary characteristics, is showing beautifully right now! Blue fruits and dark fruits, tart cherry, pastureland, black pepper, and cool damp coniferous forest floor. On the palate, blueberries, dark cherry, spiced and cured deli meat, and Herbs de Provence. The acid, which was quite zippy, has done a wonderful job keeping this alive. The tannins, which seemed well integrated in the first glass, started to gain strength by the second glass. The finish was remarkably looooong and satisfying. While they aren’t dying anytime in the immediate future, there is no reason not to drink and enjoy this now. — 24 days ago

Vin de Pays de l'Hérault White Rhone Blend 2013

What a sad sad news. Yesterday Laurent Vaillé of Grange des Pères died at the age of 57. A big loss. Today, this briljant 2013 White deserves the perfect score. RIP Laurent. Thank you for all the beautiful moments thanks to your wines. — 7 days ago

Picpoul de Pinet 2019

9.0

As the weather warms, my thoughts turn to Picpoul. Green tasting with citrus, herbal and mineral notes. The acid lives up to its reputation, “Lip Stinger”. Yesterday, I drank it with sardines, so good. Today, I’m picking up some oysters and will finish off the bottle. — 21 days ago

Empreinte du Temps Grenache Blanc

Matté
9.3

Very old vine Grenache Blanc that’s purposefully oxidised (barrels sent topped up, not sure if there’s any flor). This is one for lovers of Vin Jaune but at a fraction of the price. Orange zest, marmalade, lots of dried stone fruit with a lovely saline, umami thing going on. Burnt butter, toasted nuts, this has many layers.
Palate is mouth filling and rich without being ott. In no way fresh, but that ain’t the game here. All those, nutty, dried fruits come through, has this really lovely tiramisu thing going on in the mid palate and finish (which is long). If you like this style, this is bonkers good value! Best with punchy cuisine such as smoked anchovies and southern french fair.
