Domaine Gramenon

Côtes du Rhône Grenache Blend 1996

Going #Rhône this Friday night. '96 #DomaineGramenon #CepsCentenaires from #AOC #CotesduRhône #France. Sexy, little number, with a lithe nose & palate of mushrooms, garrigue, chalk & black tea. Super bright, tongue smacking acidity! A dancer for certain. Wonderful #wine & perfect finish to a long work week & beginning of the #GoldenWeek vacation in #Japan. — 6 years ago

Saint Amant

La Borry Côtes du Rhône Viognier 2017

Viognier, from cool and high-altitude reaches of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Asian pear, acacia and just enough tartness and pucker to let you know this isn’t bruised, hot-climate, picked-too-late stuff. Impeccably balanced, long, graceful. I’d put this into a northern Rhône tasting anytime. #domainesaintamant #rhône #viognier — 2 years ago

You're so right! Certainly deserves it :)

Monastere De Solan

Cuvée Saint Martin Red Blend 2014

Blend of Syrah, Grenache, Carignan and Cinsault, made in the French monastery of Solan in the southern #Rhône region. Bright red colour, herbal nose with dark fruity tasting notes. Not very acidic or dry, making it an easy sipper. Paired it with steak. #Biowine — 6 years ago

Château Pesquié

Quintessence Rhône Valley Vineyards Roussanne Clairette 2014

This Rhône blend was rather vibrant with lots of berries, raspberry and blackberry on a bed of smoked tobacco. The finish was a little sharp. Sort of like 85% dark bitter chocolate with pepper notes. #rhône #france #grenache #sryah #ventoux #chateauPesquie — 3 years ago
