Rhône Grenache Blend

Château de Trinquevedel

Tavel Rosé Grenache 2017

Delectable Wine
9.1

Brilliant orange-pink. Pungent red currant, cherry and blood orange aromas, along with suggestions of lavender and chalky minerals. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering red berry and bitter cherry flavors that are supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Marries power to finesse with a smooth hand and finishes very long and sappy; a late floral nuance adds a grace note. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2018) — 3 days ago

La Pialade de Rayas

Côtes du Rhône Grenache Blend 2008

Lighter than the Rayas and Pignan but with the same or perhaps some added elegance. Has everything you want and expect from one of Reynauds wines: warm ripe strawberries, petrichor and iodine. No need to wait. — 12 days ago

Prieure de Montezargues

Tavel Rosé Cinsault Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.0

Lurid pink. Ripe red berries, tangerine, succulent herbs and a hint of peach on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors that are energized by a jolt of spicy white pepper. Smoothly blends power and liveliness and finishes long and sappy; a subtle floral note makes a late appearance. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, June 2018)

Domaine du Pegau

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Some sooty tarry notes. Light to medium bodied - lighter than I expected. After some time in the decanter the wine filled out and put on palate weight giving earthy plummy minerality on the now medium weight palate. Aromas of undergrowth and garrigue. 85% Grenache 9% Syrah 4% Mourvèdre and 2% assorted other varieties. From a cellaring viewpoint rather short term for a big name Chateaneuf du Pape. — 6 days ago

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2004

Elegant and extremely perfumed, a nice juicy red fruit core featuring ripe cherries, raspberries, and strawberries, followed by dried lavender, meaty beef jus, orange peel, undergrowth, sweet tobacco, charcoal, and intense black pepper. Delicious sweet red fruit flavors on entry with some dried apricots that lead to a umami rich midpalate filled with meaty notes, iron, and a slightly saline minerality that intermingles with intense peppery notes that linger for some time. Incredible silky mouth feel on this midbodied red, very light in structure but intense in flavors. — 10 days ago
