Rhône Grenache Blend

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2001

Boom. Oxidative off the cork but blew off quick! Meaty phase and then straight to beautiful smoke, earth and elegant fruit. Tons of life left! — 10 days ago

Michel Gassier

Cercius Grenache Syrah 2015

The Latin name for north-northwest winds is CERCIUS – the defining feature and raison d'etre for partners Michel Gassier, Philippe Cambie and Eric Solomon to launch this new project. A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, with nice berry and floral aromas. Raspberry & cherry flavors maintain freshness from concrete tanks used during vinification. Fine tannins, medium finish, nice value. — 2 days ago

Xavier Vignon

Rasteau Grenache Blend 2015

Bright. Kirsch and strawberry compote, balanced well by a savory, salvia-like quality. Hint of castor bean. Like all Xavier ‘15s, it juggles tannin, low pH, big ripeness. Superb. #xavier #rasteau #grenache #rhone — 6 days ago

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

Dark murky reddish color, almost opaque. Crazy nose with notes of cherries, earth, herbs, tree bark and beets. Very rich in the mouth. A touch of heat/alcohol. Very Grenache-y. Good finish. Entering a nice drinking window but no need to hurry. — 21 hours ago

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2006

Best white Rhône (of too few) I’ve ever tasted. Robbie tells me these drink well on delivery, then soon shut down for 7+ years and come out the other side like this - a honeysuckle punch in the nose, followed by honey-infused chalky and flowery, ripe and full but nonetheless light, liquid Christmas cake. Wow. - Robbie’s, London — 12 days ago
