Rocca Maura

Terra Ancestra Lirac Red Rhone Blend 2006

Vintage 2006 / made from #Grenache #Syrah #Mourvedre with 12 months on new oak barrels. Nice smell that gives more with aeration: spicy, impression of plums and chocolate. Smooth taste with good balance. Les vignerons de Roquemaure near Avignon are one of the impressive ‘cooperatives’ in France. — 8 days ago

Château Ollieux Romanis

Les Ollieux Romanis Corbières Red Blend 2016

Vacationing in Europe is all about intriguing wine discoveries. Here’s a #corbieres red blend of semi-dried #syrah , #grenache and #carignan. First pour reveals a rich nose of raisins with a touch of toasted oak and vanilla. It’s a full-bodied red and like many wines of France, I find it really improves after a day after uncorking. This wine held up well paired with lamb masala curry. — 2 months ago

Domaine Jaume

Altitude 420 Côtes du Rhône Villages Vinsobres 2014

Sexy, fresh, Grenache-heavy. Fraises and framboises. Elegant, subtle herbaceousness, lower alcohol, not oxidative at all. Useful in the same way a lot of ‘08 southern Rhônes were. #jaume #vinsobres #rhone #grenache — 10 days ago

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Wild fraises, kirsch, garrigue. Maybe the greatest in the history of these benchmark CDR. Has the concentration and length of most southern Rhône crus. Superior. #xavier #côtesdurhône #grenache — 2 months ago

Giuseppe Sedilesu

Mamuthone Cannonau di Sardegna

Vintage 2015 - This wine from #grenache is lovely. Opens up with aeration, the smell of plums, spices and even some roses. A great balance, initially quite powerfull but friendly with my Chinese oriented Beef Paksoi. Great effort from #sardinia / the wine won Tre Bicchiere from the #gamberorosso — 3 months ago

Domaine Le Roc Des Anges

Segna de Cor Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2016

Achingly pure, filigreed and delineated...not the words you associate with Roussillon wine. But old vines, careful bio viticulture and the daring to harvest at the precise arrival of ripeness (13%) make for a modern-day version of iron fist in velvet glove. And on top of all that, the Catalan qualities shine through more and more with each successive vintage. Fraises, bramble, confits of tiny red fruits and the persistent haunt of black, low pH schist. Extraordinary. #rocdesanges #grenache #carignane #roussillon #catalonia — 21 days ago

Excellent typical example of good Aussie Grenache. First impression is 'red Clare Riesling'. Clean with ripe red fruit (strawberry fruit roll-out). White pepper with a little heart. Best with a little chill. #blindtasting #australianwinetasting #yangarra #Grenache — 3 months ago
