Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

The 2nd wine to Vieux Telegraphe’s famed La Crau. Sweet Grenache raspberry notes on nose and palate. Fresher, more fruit and less savoury than I was expecting, although there is a note of light tar. Tannins are fine and very fluid. Hasn’t got the depth of La Crau. 80% Grenache 10% Syrah 6% Mourvèdre 4% Cinsault. — 7 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2016

Love these Mediterranean whites. Unctuous and delicious. Medium to full bodied with low soft acid. Notes of apricot, nectarine and pineapple juice. I have 3 left which I should drink in the next 12 to 18 months. — 7 days ago

Ava White Rhône Blend 2016

Happy birthday to me. Nutty, honey, a little creamy, stone fruit, but with solid minerality. Wonderful. — 12 days ago

La Gravette de Certan Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Popped and poured; no formal notes. The 2010 “La Gravette de Certan” pours a deep ruby, almost purple color with some fine sediment. Gorgeous aromas of ripe brambles, plums, purple flowers, cocoa, graphite minerals and baking spices. That palate is treated to a luxurious silken blanket of flavor with ample fruit that is deftly balanced by minerals, earth and a gentle kiss of spices. The structure, which is wonderfully integrated, props everything up. The finish is long and effortlessly charming. This is classic Pomerol. Even though this is the second wine of VCC, it’s treated like (and drinks like) it’s one of the great wines of the appellation. Everyone who shared this bottle tonight was completely smitten. Drinking so well now and should continue to do so for at least another 5-10 years…but no reason to wait. — a month ago

Cuvée Violette Syrah 2014

We pulled this from the cellar - originally from the winery during a trip to the Okanagan in the summer of 2016 . This is a very silky wine. Complex, powerful notes with violets, stewed dark fruit, wild blueberry, eucalyptus, white pepper with a hint of basil and bell pepper. A great Canadian wine and well worth the wait. It’s definitely a drink now. — a month ago
