Vaucluse, Rhône

Domaine Gourt de Mautens (Jérôme Bressy)

Vaucluse Red Rhone Blend 2012

Compelling Grenache-dominated Rhône blend. Compact and powerful but layered with blue and bright red fruit, smoke and peppery spice. Will benefit from aging but wow so nice. — 16 days ago

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1998

Reddish tawny and translucent. Thinner and brighter than the older Barolo next to it. Great C-R nose. Notes of granite stone, earth, black cherry, cranberry, a little bacon, blueberries and some old wood. Vibrant in the mouth. Still has young fruit impression, tannins are soft and acidity still gives some pucker. Great future ahead for bottles like this. — 2 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

Deep purple hue. Medium-plus tearing. Smoked meat, black cassis, ripe plum, candied blackberries, molasses, bay leaf, wet stone, potting soil, and baking spices on the nose. On the palate, strong acidity, spice, and tannins open up to juicy black fruit, dark chocolate, and espresso notes. Lovely southern Rhône, Grenache-based blend with strong complexity. Long finish. 15% ABV. Vintage 2016. #chateaudesaintcosme #gigondas #southernrhonewines #encoresilvousplaît — an hour ago
