Marc Sorrel

Le Gréal Hermitage Syrah 1999

9.0

Woke up after a few minutes in the glass. Pretty color with some rim variation. Incredible complexity and intensity on the nose. Ripe red fruit, flowers, meat, and herbs all blended together with very few distinct notes. Structure has melted away leaving a silky texture but a shorter finish. Drink now!! #marcsorrel #hermitage #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Domain Normand (Sylvaine & Alain Normand)

Mâcon Chardonnay 2016

8.6

Well ripened yellow fruit and flowers on nose showing decent depth. Palate was rounded out and balanced with a sharp backbone of acidity. The fruit was sweet and showed good complexity. Quite tense. Needs a little more time to relax and fully come together. #macon #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Heading towards old world characteristics with more restraint and structure. Well made. Fruit undefined but just ripened at moment. Fine finish. #merlot #lecole #washington #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Domaine Michel Cheveau

Beaujolais-Villages Gamay "En Chatenay" 2015

8.7

A serious and well made #beaujolaisvillages Spicy and dense nose with good intensity. The red and black fruit on the palate was taught and well defined lacking any “fruityness”. Great character. Well balanced with a fine structure. Good length. Fun with character. #domainecheveau #gamay #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Overly sweet red fruit on nose. Almost frosting. Palate is dry and doesn’t make sense with awkward fruity and medicinal notes. Short finish. #casasmith #barbera #washington #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Vittoria Frappato 2016

Fun wine. Notes of Campari, burnt orange, spice, red fruit, flowers on the nose. The palate was lean but lively. Balanced structure but lacked fruit in mid palate. Fine finish. Good food wine. #frappato #sicily #ctbucklinwine — a year ago

Vignobles Thévenet & Fils

Mâcon-Pierreclos Chardonnay 2016

Under ripened orchard fruit, lemons, and white flowers on nose and palate. Medium- complexity. Elevated and racy acidity added a lot of movement and texture to wine. Lacked fruit in mid-palate to balance everything. Fine finish. #thevenet #chardonnay #mâcon #ctbucklinwine — a year ago
