Domaine de Chevillard

Savoie Mondeuse 2018

#6 of Jura Savoie evening
Dark & broody with dark berry fruit (blackberry, mulberry) with some earthy notes and a healthy dose of graphite. Very Gamay, Morton, Brouilly style.
On the palate this has a a firm tannic frame, yet with juicy tannins and good dark plum & mulberry fruit. Nice acidity freshness and a mineral, fresh note.
Needs at least 2h decanting but then is so drinkable. A lovely wine!

Little Wine #10 Syrah

Ron R

Switching gears and changing lanes. New bathroom done!
We are a touch surprised by this example.. Vegetal notes on the nose transition to the palate. Nice weight and texture on the mid-palate, with perfect acidity. Notes of coffee, autumn leaves and brown sugar, but not sweet on the finish. Slight meaty note completes a good but not great example.
Day 2. Revising my score downwards.

Interesting notes. I enjoyed little wine #6 and #7, but can’t get my hands on any of the recent vintages to compare.Happy holidays, @Ron R!

@Timothy Lynch, any old excuse will do.


"Little Wine" #6 Syrah

See previous notes for Little Wine #6. In summary very dark Ruby with purple tinges. Opaque. Luscious mouth filling Shiraz - the old vine source is obvious - soft, plush and plummy. A blend of 2016, 2015, 2013 and 2012 - all good vintages. I took delivery of my allocation of Little Wine #10 recently. 36 weeks later I had my last bottle of Little Wine No. 6 with consistent notes on 9th February 2022. Amazing value for $31 back in the day. — a year ago

I believe so. One of his best from the excellent 2012 vintage - the label showed a collection of vintage match boxes from Frasers grandmother as I understand it. I have notes here on Delectable showing that label.

It’s called Baby Tui from 2012. I did a tasting note 51 weeks ago. They are all good but this one was special. Luckily I have one left.
