Calcaires Grenache-Cinsault Blend

9.4

Absolutely adore this ephemeral tisane of a red wine. Kind of in the Anglore style, light but slightly spicy, stunning transluscent color. — 5 days ago

Les Terres Rouges Red Blend 2015

2nd wine from this producer this week. Has good structure and built for a bit of cellaring. More tannins and darker fruit then the first cuvée we tried. Need a good slab of meat to go with this. GSM blend. — 7 months ago

Les Clos des Grillons Vieux Sage Red Blend 2017

4th wine this week from Clos de Grillons! We are on a roll here as this producer reminds me of L’Anglore style wines or Alain Graillot style wines depending on the cuvée. 100% Syrah which tasted similar to Graillot’s bottling. Intense black fruit but not heavy on the palate. — 7 months ago

Les Terres Blanches Vieilles Vignes Red Rhone Blend 2016

We went through a bit a phase with this producer the past couple of weeks. It’s great to try the different cuvées in succession while they remain fresh in your memory. This one is made for the long run with great structure. Lots of black fruit backed by a bit of spice. 80% Grenache and 20% Carignan/Cinsault. — 7 months ago
