Smokey barnyard action.

Château-Grillet (Neyret-Gachet)

Côtes du Rhône Viognier 2016

Première expérience avec ce producteur mythique. On y retrouve le côté exubérant du viognier, ses fruits jaunes et ses fleurs, son amertume, mais le tout est élégant et sous contrôle. L'acidité est plus grande que la moyenne pour ce cépage, et l'ensemble est complété par des notes minérales (iode, pierre à fusil). Vraiment très bon. — 12 days ago

Famille Perrin

Cuvée Pierre Perrin Côtes du Rhône Grenache Blend

Raspberries in the nose,
This started as a softer version of what it is becoming, candied fruits now turn to raspberries and cream, pomegranate seed and all, hints of mint medley. A long and hefty, very well made wine. A top producer in the Rhône valley. Finishes with a little jolly rancher acidity.

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2005

Rich and concentrated showing excellent depth and complexity along with mid-palate intensity. A superb vintage for Beaucastel and CDP. Kirsch cherries, black raspberry liquor, damp earth, red flowers and balanced acidity. Finishes with excellent length while tannins continue to retain grip and firmness. Lots of life left but drinking beautifully now. 90 min decant minimum. I’d say similar to 95 and 98 for them in terms of structure and age-ability. — 8 hours ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2017

2 hour decant (little chunky and cloudy sediment). A wonderful dark red garnet color. On the nose: floral perfume, strawberry-plum, smoke, crushed rocks and orange peel. Taste: Young...still some grippy tannins...needs a few more years. A fresh and juicy wine with raspberry, wet stones, tobacco, pepper....finishing with a herbal strawberry medium plus finish. — 4 hours ago

Domaine Saint Gayan

In Nomine Patris Gigondas Grenache Syrah Blend 2011

Whoa. Pop and pour. On the nose:.intense black cherry, loads of garrigue and dried herbs, a touch of bacon fat, incense, blackberry cola, heady, but so aromatically complex and utterly enticing. On the palate, good acidity, black cherry, cola, herbs with a suggestion of the medicinal, very sweet blackberry...surprisingly light on its feet, then a soft, enveloping wave of palate coating, velvety tannin. There is perhaps a touch of alcoholic heat on the nose that betrays the 15% ABV this has, but that might just be the power of suggestion. Absolutely perfect for my mood tonight. — 14 days ago

Château de Beaucastel

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2017

Young but stellar already. Dark stewed red & black fruit, leather, incense, and more than a little freshly turned earth. Great structure - mouthwatering acidity with grippy and long tannic finish. Better than some Gigondas / CdP I’ve had recently. Long life ahead. — 11 days ago

Le Vieux Donjon

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Absolutely gorgeous! Deeply concentrated with alluring depth, almost bombastic but still maintains liveliness and pure drinkability. They nailed whole cluster and level of extraction. Beautiful texture, savory and lifted fruit components, almost semi-carbonic in character. Pure and ultra ripe black plum, logan berry, so much garrigue from scrubby herbs to lavender and candied olive, menthol, black peppercorn, vibrant Asian spices, leather, violets, citrus peel. — 7 days ago
