La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Syrah

Wow. This is Drinking wonderfully. Earthy, forest floor with blue fruits and a little olive tapenade and solid acid/tanninic backbone — 5 days ago

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1995

Decanted for a few hours before checking in. Purple reddish color. Earthy nose. Notes of black currants, crushed granite, blueberries, some funk, some menthol and some dark soil. What it has in the nose is missing in the mouth…. Not as good as the last bottle… not very exciting nor impactful. Today it’s all about the nose. — 4 months ago

Vieilles Vignes Santenay Pinot Noir

Much black compared with Bourgogne and juicy. Earthy herby spicy aroma. Deep strawberry. Tannic due to young. Over time, much smooth after one hour. 9.0 after a few years. Last minutes today, 3 hours, a bit dry. 2018 @1080, Kping -, 210520-210526 — 5 months ago

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2003

A decent quaff, but not at the level of his higher end cuvees or better vintages. Lots of fruit but lacking weight or meaningful structure. Drink up. — 5 months ago

A Northern Rhône take on a Southern Rhône blend - less stewed fruit, more floral and herbal and nuance. Lovely. — 5 months ago
