Rhône Grenache Blend

Château de Trinquevedel

Tavel Rosé Grenache

And I shall continue to sing Trinquvedel’s praises. Zingier than the last vintage or so but still with that underlying richness and pavement of smooth river-washed stone. My gosh, Tavel. You should marry Trinquevedel. — 3 days ago

Great intensity. Hot but balanced with smooth and firm tannins. Expressive ripe red and black fruit. Good energy, and complexity. Nice length. Needs time! — 9 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Château de Saint-Cosme Gigondas Red Rhône Blend 2010

What wine is a 92 after 20 minutes of cork pop? What wine is a 94 with a chicken green chili, poblano and jalapeno pepper soup? THIS. Slight hint of aged brambleberry and fig on the nose. Entry is fig dominated without food and more of a black cherry with the food. After an hour, this one actually seemed to get more youthful with or without any acoutrement. Hint of truffle to the finish. Nice wine. Two more and I'm actually amazed I was able to time consuming this case rather well! Should drink nicely for the next 5 to 7 years. — 9 hours ago

Nice! I opened the bottle I got from you almost a year ago and it was wonderful as well.

@Shay A Really was a nice profile. And probably would have been good on day 2....if it had lasted :)

Clos du Joncuas

Gigondas Rosé Grenache Blend

Light brite. Bright and not ever so light! It has that Grenache hit that makes this fun and not just another white wine masquerading as a rosé as it is the salmon color that says it is serious. the lime, tangerine, shell, wetted (in your luxe shower) pumice stone and custard bits take me home. Literally and figuratively I’d come home to this wine. I’d take it home and bed it on the regular — 20 days ago

Wait they make rose? Must try. Love the rouge despite the label looking like Donald Trump’s powder room

Domaine du Pegau

Cuvée Réservée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Lovely Grenache based perfume showing Raspberry and Garrigue notes typical of Chateaneuf du Pape. Medium bodied palate with fine supple tannins. Was expecting it to be more full bodied from a quality producer in a good vintage. Always have loved mature CdPs. No need to cellar any longer. — 14 hours ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2011

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish/ purplish rim.

On the nose, blueberries, light cherries, light vanilla, wet leaves, earth, tobacco leaf, leather, licorice, spices, black pepper, bitter herbs and vegetables.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Very dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, spices, vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco leaf, dark coffee, peppercorn, earth and black tea.

Long finish with grippy tannins (after 2 hours of airtime) and tangy cranberries.

This 8 year old Côte du Rhône is still drinking nicely although on the decline now. Not fully balanced with hugh tannins. I had it 3 years ago and it was not ready at all. Much better now.

Earthy, big and would be a nice addition to a fatty BBQ steak. I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

L’Anglore lite!! All juice! Fresh cherries and crunchy red fruit. Couldn’t have paired it better with spicy tomato tripe pasta and burrata. Great find of a wine. — a day ago

Domaine de la Bastide

Cuvée les Figues Côtes du Rhône Syrah Blend

Young and fresh.

Vanilla cake topped with a berry compote, that’s what this nose has to tell.

Soft candied fruitcake fruits, yet only a hint. This quickly turns into Pom and cherry, no sugar added type of juice, with just enough barrel aging to temper these fresh fruits. Some of that lovely popsicle stick tannic /acidity blend to bring up the back end. A lovely wine, if you give it some air time. A couple of hours in, and it is drinking perfect.

Domaine Saint-Damien

Les Souteyrades Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2010

We had a couple of friends over and did a fun little 2010 Saint-Damien Gigondas side-by-side consisting of “La Louisiane” and “Les Souteyrades”. Both wines were opened six hours prior to service; each spent three hours in the decanter and also slow-ox’ed in the bottle for an additional three. I initially questioned whether decanting was even necessary but after reading some of the notes on CT and trying a small bit after pulling the corks, it seemed to me that air would be beneficial.

The “Les Souteyrades” was a trip to the Woodland Realm. On the nose this was brambles, oud (agarwood), boiled spinach, curaçao, smoke and mushrooms. A much more powerful and rustic wine than “La Louisiane”. This should drink well for another decade.
