Le p'tit Barriot Syrah 2016

Smells like poo. Only after some violent shaking and a double decant did it express some red fruits, backed by an olive reduction on the nose. The palate's earthy and spicy, with a touch of animale. Finishes tart and leathery. An elegant expression of Syrah, but perhaps too light and funky for my liking. — 9 days ago

The “smells like poo” gave me a giggle 🤭

Domaine l'escarpolette

Le Blanc Vin de France White Blend

This is one of my favorite styles of wine. Skin contact aromatic specifically muscat and not too heavy on the tannins like radikon or Georgian wines. I still think it masks the terroir but I love it either way... maybe the basic white carbonic equivalent for amateur natty wine connoisseurs like myself. 🤷‍♂️ super cloudy and some va. Both good things in my book. Thanks again chambers — 4 days ago

Previous notes apply. This was tight and square on day one, singing at day three. Note to self: cellar couple of years — 17 days ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor 2017

Lots of aromatic complexity and finesse, the heat is deftly managed here and the alcohol kept in check. Freshness abounds, as do violets, lavender, sweet black berries, plums and garrigue. Mostly Grenache but the carignane and particularly the Syrah make themselves known. Velvety smooth texture — 10 days ago

Domaine Rimbert

Le Mas au Schiste Saint-Chinian Carignan Blend 2016

This vintage is big. So young but already perfect for aging. Aromatic nose. Sexy wine. One of the highly underrated and under celebrated producers in the J&F portfolio. Endorse — 19 days ago

Famille Cros-Pujol

Le Bastion Syrah Viognier 2019

Syrah married to Viognier for a daring blend (like Côte-Rotie) on Langedoc lands. Exuberant grape, it expresses spices, coulis of fresh black berries and finally a note of fresh licorice. Supple, early, fresh, delicious. — 5 days ago

Château de Casenove

Rivesaltes 1994

Château de Casenove Muscat de Rivesaltes 1994, France

Light peach in color.

Sweet nose of Mediterranean spices, ripe pears, citrus, peaches, apricots, cinnamon and honey.

Full bodied, bold and sticky, with high acidity and nice legs.

Sweet on the palate with citrus, yellow apples, apricots, melons, honey, tropical fruits, lemons, peaches, cinnamon, over ripe bananas and Mediterranean spices.

Long sweet finish with spices and limes.

This 26 year old French Muscat is awesome. Not too sweet, and nicely balanced with great complexity.

A great dessert wine and better when nicely chilled.

I paired it with Macadamia Nut Sunday in a walfale cone. Yummy and complex.

16% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Champs-pentus Red Blend 2017

A very nice Grenache blend - stronger Tannins than you might expect. Strong enough to complement beef burgers. Still quite smooth and dry. January 2020. — 5 days ago
