Les Grands Prétans Givry 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2022

Actually pretty good. Mostly cherry driven right now. Well balanced and good tannic structure. If you like burghs and you do not want to pay too much this is a good one. At La Costa Wine Co. right now by the glass. — 8 days ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2000

I still dream of the ‘72 and for better or worse always compare to that. This is great, just not as mind blowing. Definitely blended great and still vibrant, but does have a green pepperiness to it that I was not expecting from Rhone. — 3 months ago

Ventoux Red Rhone Blend

Wow! 2019 was sitch a great year, and this wine, from an area abutting Chateauneuf du Pape, is an absolute steal. All the approachability of a great GSM but made with great restraint: allowing the fruit to really speak for itself. Grab a couple of bottles; you’ll be very happy you did! — 6 months ago
