Tavel, Southern Rhône

La Forcadière Tavel Rosé 2017

9.1

I never expected a bottle costing ~$20.00 CAD to be this good. This approachable Southern Rhône Grenache punches well above its price. Presenting plum and blackberry aromas this full body yet spry blend excites a zesty turn on the palate with its crisply dry concentrate of blackberry and currant flavors. Long in finish with hints of lavender and chalk this wine will please. 14% alc/vol — 11 days ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

Oh hell complex and juicy and fruity as f. Undercurrents of a mineral base. Picture those rocks that are mostly almost black but there is a speckle or so of white and that...is the mineral nature and it ballasts cocky-ass raspberries like this wine has an attitude. So damn good hope my (not so genius) tasting of a half bottle holds up. One last genius-ish thought: picture a newsies boy, cap and all doing a heel click while a Brooklyn winemaker toasts an old school french winemaker and that is your prettiness. I’ll pour it all into my Zalto. — 6 days ago

Super bright and enjoyable. Might be considered a 3rd label of Rayas, though thankfully it is produced at the Chateau...and it shows. — 4 days ago

La Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2015

Perennial favorite producer. The ‘15 rivals the ‘12 in structure and layered complexity. No fruit bomb, this is exactly how we like our southern rhônes. Opening is evocative with blueberry/cherry and graphite. Excellent tannic undergirding, only marred by a lackluster finish. More of this, please. — 14 days ago

Vacqueyras Rouge Red Rhône Blend 2012

Oh yummy wine I want to consume with girlfriends late at night. It is a grape jam sandwich on EXQUISITE white bread (homemade by me) on a beautiful table set with lilacs and licorice candies. This is light yet it has a black crushed velvet backdrop. Simple. But also really interesting. When I drink this I close my eyes and see candied licorice and vanilla beans and black grapes. — 11 days ago

Big, smooth, balanced with muted tannins that hides its 15% alc/vol. What a great way to start our Canadian Thanksgiving. Cheers 🍷 — 8 days ago
