Domaine Chante Cigale

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010

This is a very enjoyable CDP. Showing black fruits with chocolates, earth, wood, vanilla, vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, spices, peppercorn, leather, vinaigrette and tobacco leaf.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very yummy. At this point it is showing great complexity and mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a from a great vintage, Drinking, very nicely now, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.

Robert Parker 94 points.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 5% Cinsault. Aged in stainless steel vats (70%) and new oak barrels (30%).

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2016

Another great example of the excellent 2016 vintage. This is a really smooth wine with a great flavour profile both on the nose and palate. Surprisingly fruity but also earthy, herbal and complex. Top juice and way too easy to drink. — a day ago

Domaine Saint-Damien

Vieilles Vignes Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2016

We are upon another weekend and tonight I have opened the 2016 Saint-Damien Classique Vieilles Vigne Gigondas. This is a Rhone Blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre.

On the nose there is ripe strawberry, black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, black pepper, thyme, spice, licorice, violet and earth.

On the palate the nose is confirmed with black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, black pepper, lots of spicy nuance, licorice and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with medium + acidity and medium grippy mouth coating tannins that lead to a long rich dark fruit finish. I wonderful Rhone Blend that can be drunk now or store for another 5-10 years. Looks like a beautiful weekend is in front of us and you need to enjoy it. Be safe and have a great time. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Apparently a cru of the Cotes du Rhone now. Killer black cherry, raspberry fruit with major spice box and stem inclusion. Medicinal in the best way. Complex and delicious. Love. — 6 days ago

Château Rayas

Château Des Tours Réservé Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend 2012

Honey, wax, white juicy pear and a bit of reduction. The palate is a masterpiece with a strong acid backbone and a silky matter on the side with a bright fruit (white fruits). There is spice in there too. The finish is extremely long and expanding with some bitterness coming up in the end. Some white pepper here and there. What a Sunday night treat! — 2 days ago

Oh yes @Amr El-Azhary although I must say I think I even prefer their reds now.

Réserve Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2003

Mid crimson in colour with a tawny edge. Some tarriness on the nose with some savoury raspberry and liquorice with garrigue. Sweet mature flavours showing loam, red berries Liquorice with a hint of tar on the palate but at 16 years pretty much everything in beautiful balance. Really love aged Chateauneuf du Pape. — 9 days ago
