La Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2015

Bright purple. Explosive, smoke- and spice-accented blueberry, cherry cola, incense and smoky mineral aromas show outstanding delineation and pick up a hint of olive with aeration. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering deeply concentrated dark berry liqueur, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors, along with a suggestion of star anise. The remarkably long, penetrating finish features strong minerally cut, an echo of sweet blue fruit and harmonious tannins that come in late and fold effortlessly into the deeply concentrated fruit. At this stage, this is a contender for the wine of the vintage, at least by estimation. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2018) — 21 days ago

Grand Classique Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2015

My night before a 10k across a bridge wine.
Decanted for a few hours.
Nose of working farmyard, decomposing, wet hay, and animal ruckus.
Medium bodied with well balance dark fruit, mint, Greek oregano, hints of anise, riverstone. Ending with a long lingering finish that puts the oak and acid at one with each other. Nicely balanced, young , but hey, aren’t we all at heart?

Limpid yellow. Incisive aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, ginger and violet are joined by hints of chalky minerals, fennel and white pepper. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering fresh pear and Meyer lemon flavors that show impressive clarity and minerally drive. The citrus fruit and floral notes come back strong on the vibrant finish, which hangs on with excellent focus and tenacity. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2018) — 21 days ago

(raised in stainless steel tanks and made with no malo) Limpid straw-yellow. Assertive, mineral-accented orchard fruit, melon and fennel aromas are sharpened by hints of ginger and lemon zest. Intense pear skin, Meyer lemon and violet pastille flavors show a suave blend of richness and delicacy thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Closes minerally, taut and impressively long, leaving a powerful floral note behind. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, February 2018) — 21 days ago

Just incredible. Seemed almost Burgundian except for the telltale Syrah note on the back end. Wonderful. — 17 days ago
