Saint Chamant

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2018

Very typical Syrah aromatics, flowers with violets in particular, pepper and dark fruit. The wine is so good and approachable now despite it’s youth, medium bodied plus, fruity and juicy with nice strong tannins that have a great silky texture.

Nez très Syrah avec du poivre, un côté floral, violettes entre autres. La bouche est gourmande, fruitée et juteuse, de corps moyen mais avec un bel équilibre et des tannins soyeux et agréables, ça se boit tout seul et c’est bon dès maintenant malgré la jeunesse. 89-90

@Aaron Rankin that wine is so approachable now and easy drinking, this young producer makes great stuff, his best wines like his Cornas cuvée Jana is more serious, but his entry levels Cornas and Saint-Joseph have what it takes to be enjoyed young.

Château Beychevelle

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

Deep and concentrated and with tannins not yet fully resolved. Although having shed lots of its fruit, it was clear to still have a plenty of life left and a lot to offer. Cigar ash, espresso, cedar, scorched earth and black currants. The finish was quite long and generous with grip and very good intensity. — 4 days ago

Domaine Jean-Louis Chave

Saint-Joseph Syrah 2014

Smells like smoked brisket, campfire, dark cherries and blueberries. Tannins and acid make you crave meat. Long finish. — 12 days ago

Probably our favorite tannat from SW France yet. Like a really fine BDX without the cost. Dark and brooding. Great with oxtail stew. — 11 days ago

Saint-Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2016

I always love drinking this. A crazy sick value, an early drinker, consistent. Year in year out.

Nose is apricot skin. Almost a kiss of old Rieslingy aromatics. Super integrated. Lovely.

Palate is apricot and a kiss of honey. Pleasantly but not over the top rich. That’s the style. Juicy. Great acidic balance.

Bought from Fass selections.

2017. Almost wente clone CA like but with way more minerality. Beautifully expressive with time. Opens up huge but Shows more restraint as the night goes on. It somehow gets more focused over time. Very nice indeed — 16 days ago

Saint-Romain Chardonnay 2018

Absolutely love these White Burgundies from Saint Romain! Butter, lime, and vegetable elements on the nose. An absolute lovely texture is this wine’s highlight! Camomile and butter on the palate, with a nice balance of acidity and sweetness. Medium finish. Very good QPR @ £24. — 8 days ago

I think this is my first St Bris aka my first SB from Burgundy! Have to say, I really enjoyed it. It isn’t very complex but it is very drinkable. — 14 days ago

Le Banc Saint-Aubin Chardonnay 2018

I’m not sure I understand the below 9.0 ratings here. An excellent and well-made wine. Extremely approachable young. Has some acidity and the finish is a little tangy/puckery. — 15 hours ago
