Vin Des Potes

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

Cornas Vin Noir Syrah 2017

9.6

Needed a knock you on your ass so obviously great wine and decided on this. 17 is in a great place as well. Deep nose of blackberry, granite, soil tones, and blueberry. So much but so precise and focused. A lovely pottery studio aroma after air. Palate is ripe and juicy with wonderful precision and freshness and really terrific and succulent fruit. The elegance here is top notch. Beautiful mouthfeel and awesome purity. Such vivid fruit and backed up by terrific granite. Masterful wine. So poised. Let’s see what air does. Maybe it will get better? Long finish that pumps out blackberry on a granite slab. Just awesome. 9.6999. — 11 days ago

Vin de Days Pinot Noir 2019

Damn. I am all about this wine tonight. Cherry and raspberry notes on both the nose and palate. Beautiful pinot coloring in the glass and a glorious finish. I will definitely be seeking this one out again. Highly recommended! 75% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Meunier, 5% Pinot Gris. 5/1/22. — a month ago

Clos Puy Arnaud

Grand Vin Côtes de Castillon Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Toasted notes, floral, violet, rose, blackberry, blackcurrant, black truffle, tobacco. Beautiful flexibility, with pretty evolved notes that blend with ageing, on a fruitiness that is still very lively, the balance is charming.

Notes toastées, floral, violette, rose, mûre, cassis, truffe noire, tabac. Belle souplesse, avec de jolies notes évoluées qui se fondent à l’élevage, sur un fruité encore bien vif, l’équilibre est charmant.

Château de Saint-Cosme

Little James Basket Press Vin de Pays d'Oc Grenache 2021

So delightful!
These rating scales don’t do justice to wonderful wines like this one. If you are looking for a 90+ banger of a wine, then you’ll miss the joy you get from this kind of straightforward pure expression of south Rhone Grenache. It’s so flexible and friendly with so many foods.

If you’ve been drinking $10 wines, then step up to this one and enjoy its clean friendly flavor. If you’ve been snobbishly drinking $25+ wines, then you’re also missing the simple joys of a great table wine like this.

'Vin Soave' Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Delectable Wine
8.9

The 2020 Vin Soave shows lemon oils, yellow flowers and crushed rocks in its very pretty and lifted bouquet. This is round in feel with piercing minerals and juicy acids to balance. It’s salty and floral while leaving hints of saline-tinged lime through the long finish. This is very nice for the price point. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Château Fourcas Dupré

Bordeaux Grand Vin Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Star bright straw gold. Wildly aromatic nose of citrus zest and white flowers. These are echoed on the medium light palate with lemongrass, orange rind, and balsa wood. Juicy, medium plus acidity. Taut minerality masquerading as the slightest hint of tannin. Classic BDX Blanc with typical balance of SB and Semillon that delivers the quintessential experience. Go traditional with trout almandine or modernize with fried chicken or Maryland crab cakes. Drink now through 2026. — 14 days ago
