Château Le Devoy Martine

Via Secreta Lirac Red Rhone Blend

Dusty cellar tannin nose, even after a few hours..

What I thought would be a fruit forward wine, turns out to have some structure to it, layers of prune, black olive, dark flowers, like violets, and lavender. Ends in a long finish of absorbic acidity, light peppery tannin.

A chilly night wine, for sure.

La Durbane Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

A smoky Grenache bomb. But mid weight. Lots of coffee, earth, fruit rinds,
A surprise for Xmas dinner.
Very nice.
Thanks @ Garagiste.

Échezéaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1991

This was very pretty & finessed showing cherry, rose petal, orange peel & sweet spices. Martine said that Henri stated the 91 would always have charm & last forever. — 5 years ago

La Chave Saint-Joseph Red Rhone Blend 2018

Was worried by initial natty aromas but they blew off to reveal a beautiful Syrah. Dark berries, granite, fine tannins. Not overly polished. Delicious with braised short rib and ricotta gnudi. — 9 months ago

En France Pouilly-Fuisse Chardonnay 2011

Spring 2021. 10 years is a great age for the denser Maconnais wines - enough time to develop richness and complexity but not so much as to fade all the fruit. — 3 years ago

In 2012 they blended their two single vineyard sites, La Chave and Luc into this one wine. It’s a freak show. Huge olive, huge blackberry and huge granite. An intense earthy minerality. So so complex. Almost like a tapenade. Amazing aromas. So juicy and with incredible energy. Wow what soft but such fine tannins. This is incredible. Amazing texture and balance with just ridiculous length and freshness. Stunning purity. — 5 years ago
