Jouvet Cornas Syrah 2016

A beautiful if restaurant-over-priced Cornas (embarrassed to say $$) that was stunning in its elegance and purity, haunting in its smooth entry and blood/iron notes, and loooonnng finish with grapey not woody tannins. Needs 3-5 yrs. — a month ago

Certitude Crozes-Hermitage Red Rhone Blend 2017

What a blackberry and pepper nose! Intoxicating. The palate is well done with a strong acid backbone, a dense matter on the sides with a superb blackberry that rolls on the sides, nice tannins that give a kick in the rear and a long finish with blackberry. One of the best crozes I've had — a month ago

Les Cranilles Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

Meat and leather on the nose with plenty of fruit and wet stone on the palate. The bottle says aged in cement for 8 months but there is an obvious vanilla note. I hope staves weren’t used...
Delicious regardless.

l'Appel des Sereines Syrah 2017

J. Kim

Something very bright and clear about all of his wines, clean and modern but also full of local character, ripe and full but also transparent and dynamic, in a word, masterly. — 3 months ago

Les Contours de DePoncins Viognier 2018

Dan R

Spicy and pithy, with a mandarin / peachy profile and a slightly grainy texture. Round and mouth-coating. Bit of warmth on the finish, not too distracting. Very accessible and crowd pleasing. Decent value at €40 on a wine list — 2 months ago
