Domaine Roulot

Les Tessons Clos de Mon Plaisir Meursault Chardonnay 2013

Gold in color. On the nose a touch of butterscotch. The palate is still fresh with pear and wet stone. Long and pure and clean but a touch advanced. I don’t think premoxed, but definitely ahead of where you’d expect it — a month ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Chave Sélection Côtes du Rhône Mon Coeur Red Rhone Blend 2020

Medium bodied — Syrah lends a little heft that’s balanced by a more lithe Grenache. Ripening dark cherry, blackberry, violet, and black pepper. Easy drinking and approachable. — a month ago

Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils

Cuvée De Mon Aïeul Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

One of Usseglio’s top cuvées, Mon Aïeul (“my granddad”) is 100% Grenache from some of the estate’s oldest vines (about 85 years of age) in La Crau, La Guigasse and Les Grandes Serres lieux-dits – each with a different type of soil.

Situated on an elevated plateau to the east of the village, La Crau is perhaps Châteauneuf’s most famous cru, known for its distinctive “galets roulés”, large, rounded river stones deposited here by the Rhône millions of years ago. To the south of the village, Les Grandes Serres is a very warm site on gravelly alluvial soils (and the source of the estate’s biggest wine, the 18% ABV “Not for You”). La Guigasse, on the other hand, is a cooler, sandier site with hardly any galets located on the northeastern part of the appellation, near the famous Pignan and Rayas lieux-dits (Chateau Rayas)

Mostly unoaked, it was brought up in concrete vats, with 15-20% in demi-muids. Ruby red color. Intensely perfumed, with notes of red and dark fruit (strawberry, raspberry), licorice and herbs. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and concentrated. Ripe fruit (cherry) and white pepper, smooth and creamy on the palate. Long, velvety, quite tannic finish. Hedonistic wine.
