L'Anglore Eyrolle Lirac Grenache Mourvedre 2014

@Delectablewine this is not Roussanne, it’s a Grenache blend. That said, this shows concentrated, somewhat sappy red berries backed by a savory character adding some complexity. Chalky tannins add texture to the otherwise juicy finish. Aromatics trail the palate a bit, but show similar character. This has benefitted from a few years in the bottle — 5 days ago

Les Hauts de Montmirail Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

Wow! Powerful but elegant at the same time. Wonderful floral and black fruit aromas. More black fruit, violet, eucalyptus, and minerals. Well worth the $45 price point. Drank with filet mignon. — 4 days ago

Domaine des Tours

Réserve Vin de Pays de Vaucluse White Rhone Blend 2009

This wine fucks. A wine of gras that’s never heavy handed, almost reminiscent of great aged chardonnay, texture and length for days. The fruit has resolved and this wines Provençal roots have stepped forward. Loads of class and soul. Such great qpr — 12 days ago

Domaine de Chantepierre

Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2017

Continuing on the Rhone train today! This is a delightful Lirac - full-bodied, ripe and rich with soft tannins. 45/40/15 GSM blend, so a high percentage of Syrah which really gives the wine it’s character. Made by the Cave de Vigneron de Tavel (the co-op). Many wines made by co-ops are extremely good these days. Just look at Produttori in Barbaresco! This is approachable now and delightful to drink. Well-done! 2017 vintage on Mar 22, 2017 — 5 days ago

Juicy, plump, soft and youthful.

Very nice for a daily drinker.

Domaine de la Mordorée

La Remise de la Mordorée Merlot Marselan

It satisfied my rose mood but wasn’t a fave, although I do love that it’s dry. Acidic, flavors of peach, watermelon, cantaloupe and honey. Slightly herbal. — 2 months ago

Famille Perrin

Domaine du Clos des Tourelles Gigondas Grenache Syrah


Perfect #grenache #garnacha it reminded me of some of the Garnachas I make in Campo de Borja. Super silky rich tannins. More expressive on the palate than on the nose. #gigondas and can I just say that it’s aging excellently. This was a 2012 and it was fresh and juicy and not showing any age or tiredness — 11 days ago
