Cave Des Rois St-Saphorin Syrah 2020

Pretty purple dress. First superb nose both fresh and peppery on small black blueberry, blackcurrant, violet flower; then more surprising notes on mountain climates and stink in Switzerland for me. It evokes more southern notes of syrah, such as Cornas, St-Joseph, bacon and smoke without the graphite charcoal side. Really a beautiful cuvée that connects two types of syrah usually tasted. The mouth is fluid. Cuvée full of charm with certainly cold extraction to infuse the fruit to the maximum without excess alcohol. Congratulations Switzerland once again! 🙏🇨🇭

Jolie robe pourpre. Premier nez ouvert à la fois frais et poivré, petits fruits noirs myrtille, cassis, violette; puis des notes plus surprenantes sur les climats de montagnes évoquant les syrah plus sudistes (Cornas, St-Joseph): lard, fumée sans le côté charbon graphite. Une belle cuvée faisant la jonction entre deux types de syrah habituellement goûtées. La bouche est fluide et salivante. Cuvée pleine de charme avec certainement une extraction à froid pour infuser le fruit au maximum sans excès d’alcool. Bravo la Suisse encore une fois ! 🙏🇨🇭

@delectable this is Gevrey Chambertin Kei Shiogai. unbelievable nose like The wines of Bizot. Very very well made. High score because of the quality but as always with Pinot Noir, not my cup of tea. — a month ago

Lavaux St. Jacques Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2002

2022/2/26. Nice, but I’ll admit to being slightly underwhelmed considering what it is. It felt a little stretched, with acidity to keep structure but less flesh than you might expect. Aromatically, it didn’t seem to have much tertiary development - it kind of felt like it was in that listless middle phase, which was out of sync with the palate. So, hard to know if it’s a phase or just the bottle. — 2 months ago

Stunning lavaux-st Jacques. Extremely precise, great salinity, red berries, mineral with great integrated oak, wild mushrooms and some pepper. Will be great for many years to come. — 3 months ago
