Chaillot Cornas Syrah 2020

Already so good! Chaillot is much easier to drink young than the more concentrated and rich Reynard. 2020 Chaillot is gorgeous, perfumed and mineral with layered, vibrant fruit and liquid rock minerality. Beautiful wine and perfect with lamb ribs frites for lunch! — 10 days ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2003

Nose was closed for the first 90 mins. Now giving way to gentle tobacco and dark cherry A touch dry on the front of the palate but rounds out into a juicy and long finish. Very nice. — 11 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Hermitage Syrah 2008

Excellent 08. Chave and Allemand really nailed the difficult vintage in Northern Rhône, and 2008 Hermitage is showing beautifully tonight, fresh, elegant and detailed with aromas of juicy red berry fruit, bacon, roasted herbs and smoky minerals. While not an exceptionally deep and concentrated rendition in 2008, it’s really a considerable success, and it’s fully open, giving and ready to drink. — a month ago

Domaine Jamet

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2012

Amazing vintage for Jamet that you can drink now but will continue to develop for many years. Consistent with my many prior notes showing lots of dark cherry, raspberry, meat, blood, olive, pepper, spice & crushed violets — a day ago

L'Hermitage Syrah 2016

A treat as I haven’t had a chave in a long time. A little young at this point but worth opening if you enjoy more fruit. Super elegant and relatively light in texture. — 2 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2010

2010. It seems my two bottles (first drank Dec 2022) were on the good side of the like it or hate it split with this one being even better integrated than my last. Pairing with some Memorial Day BBQ. — a day ago

Domaine Auguste Clape

Cornas Syrah

Imprecise, rustic and truly arteasanal. Despite this I have the feeling it will improve a lot with time. Perfect wine for food pairing. 93-93+ — 21 days ago

Cornas Reynard (R) Syrah 2015

En Magnum. A rare treat. Ethereal body and elevated mid-palate. Feminine, if that’s possible. Wow. — a month ago
