Rhône Grenache Blend

Domaine de la Garancière

Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret Grenache Blend 2015

Laid back nose shows deep, dark crushed berries, loads of cracked dark stones, and some iron-ey roasted beef notes. Rich and mouthfilling, it’s got low-toned fruit and rocks and holds its 14.5% under a blanket of flavor. Great value! Unusually, I think I read somewhere that this is Grenache and Carignane only, no Syrah or other Rhône varietals. — 2 days ago

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2006

2006 vintage. Took an hour to open up. Pale ruby hue. Distinctive Rayas DNA- crushed strawberry and raspberry, animalistic, leather and spice, white pepper - very complex. On the palate, silky smooth and textural, medium body, fine tannins and medium high alcohol. Long and delicious sweet finish. This is still too young and I would suggest not opening for another 3-5 years. Potentially amazing. — 6 days ago

Domaine du Grand Tinel

Alexis Establet Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2012

Popped and poured. This is in a much more fun spot than last year. The nose is a big bowl of blackberries and a bit of sandalwood which I found very intriguing and quite delightful to be completely frank. Delicious wine with dense dark fruits and some spice on the palate. This bottle did not come across hot like some notes from others have indicated. Tannin is still a touch firm but it's definitely well within the range of enjoyment at this point. Finishes with a flourish, lasting for 30 seconds. Again, the Alexis Establet comes through as a consistent and overall wonderful representation of 100% old-vine Grenache from the appellation. Drink now or enjoy over the next 3-5 years. — 32 minutes ago

Domaine de la Janasse

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Overwhelmed by the vast selection and needing to choose quickly before the store closed, I went for something I know. To be fair, I didn’t give this much time to open but I still enjoyed it and can see its potential as I’ve had prior vintages that have been great. Medium tannins, medium acid though that seems a bit cloyed by the alcohol. Raisins, raspberries, spices - the typical Grenache profile shines - light and soft on the palate. — 7 days ago

Chateau Sixtene 💸 @Shay Aldriedge - just haven’t been able to pull the trigger on spending that much on French Grenache! Now SQN on the other hand 😂

@Carl Fischer : The only one from Sixtine I've had is just their base CdP. I think it was like $60? Killer stuff! Haven't had their Cuvée de Vatican, which may be more expensive.

La Bastide Saint-Dominique

Secrets De Pignan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2012

17/20 (92/100) Джемовый аромат вишни и сливы с нотами лакрицы, ванили, кедра и мускатного ореха. Насыщенный фруктовый вкус и достаточно высокий уровень алкоголя дают иллюзию некоторой сладости вина. Кислотность умеренная, танины достаточно интенсивные и немного вяжут.
Вино существенно улучшилось за последний год и, возможно, имеет смысл подождать ещё один.
