Le Temps est Venu Côtes du Rhône Grenache 2020

A solid Côte-du-Rhône, in terms of quality/price/pleasure ratio. Dark garnet-violin dress. Complete nose, intense black fruits, menthol, garrigue, mineral notes promising a beautiful relief. In the mouth it is very balanced, supple, fruity, peppery (syrah), licorice and spicy nuances with fruit and minerality. Superb for its price!

Un Côte du Rhône des plus solide, pour ce qui est du rapport qualité/prix/plaisir. Robe grenat-violine sombre. Nez complet, fruits noirs intense, menthol, garrigue, notes minérales promesse d’un beau relief. En bouche c’est très équilibré, souple, fruité, poivré (syrah), réglisse et nuances épicées avec du fruit et de la minéralité. Superbe pour son prix !

Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2012

Gor
9.3

Still so young and tightly wound. After an hour in the glass opens up slightly with spicy and brooding aromas of plum, sweet tobacco, cherries, licorice. Hint of balsamic and earthy aromas as secondary notes star to emerge. Needs a few more years to integrate. — 18 days ago

Saint-Joseph Le Passage Syrah 2018

I put my fork down halfway through dinner and logged into my local shop’s website so I could buy the last two bottles they had. Beautiful wine. On the nose and attack it’s like where’s the beef? Then it gets into your mouth and it’s all Burgundian fresh, feminine, incense, white pepper and perfume. Great syrah. — 3 days ago
