L'Anglore Eyrolle Lirac Grenache Mourvedre 2014

@Delectablewine this is not Roussanne, it’s a Grenache blend. That said, this shows concentrated, somewhat sappy red berries backed by a savory character adding some complexity. Chalky tannins add texture to the otherwise juicy finish. Aromatics trail the palate a bit, but show similar character. This has benefitted from a few years in the bottle — 6 days ago

Domaine du Clos des Tourelles Gigondas Grenache Syrah


Perfect #grenache #garnacha it reminded me of some of the Garnachas I make in Campo de Borja. Super silky rich tannins. More expressive on the palate than on the nose. #gigondas and can I just say that it’s aging excellently. This was a 2012 and it was fresh and juicy and not showing any age or tiredness — 13 days ago

L'Anglore "Vintage" Tavel Rosé 2016

Red hard candies, fresh raspberries and wax on the nose. Warm fruit on the palate, evidently sunny climate, but still refreshing. — 6 days ago

Les Hauts de Montmirail Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2017

Wow! Powerful but elegant at the same time. Wonderful floral and black fruit aromas. More black fruit, violet, eucalyptus, and minerals. Well worth the $45 price point. Drank with filet mignon. — 5 days ago

Le Secret des Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2003

The last wine of the weekend Rhone tasting. From deep in the cellar, this is Sabon’s Secret de Sabon from the ‘03 vintage tasted side-by-side with the ‘07. The ‘03 was a more difficult vintage, but the best producers, like Sabon, made stunning wines. The ‘03 has a bit less purity of flavor than the ‘07 but is still excellent. The flavor profile of ripe black fruit and kirsch is complemented by notes of roasted meat, truffle, and dense licorice. The ABV is probably approaching 16% at this point. The wine is fully mature and should be drunk in the next few years. Excellent, complex Chateauneuf! 2003 vintage on Mar, 22, 2020 — 6 days ago

Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2017

Continuing on the Rhone train today! This is a delightful Lirac - full-bodied, ripe and rich with soft tannins. 45/40/15 GSM blend, so a high percentage of Syrah which really gives the wine it’s character. Made by the Cave de Vigneron de Tavel (the co-op). Many wines made by co-ops are extremely good these days. Just look at Produttori in Barbaresco! This is approachable now and delightful to drink. Well-done! 2017 vintage on Mar 22, 2017 — 6 days ago
