Vacqueyras 2014

Needs time. Med complexity and length. Good bones. #domainedelagarrigue #vacqueyras #rhonevalley #southernrhone #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2007

This 07 left a lot to be desired. Medium minus tannins, medium plus acidity, pale garnet color. Notes of crushed rock, pencil shavings and orange peel. Just not what I was expecting from an 07 in the southern Rhône region. #chateauneufdepape #domainedebeaurenard #southernrhone #wineproblems — 4 years ago

Domaine D'Ouréa

Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2011

Mike Fifer

Whoa! A "biggin ". Decant this. Nose full of rich plum, dark cherry and black currant syrup. Notes of stewed plum, dirt, blackberry jam on palate. #decant #sediment #unfiltered #rhone #southernrhone #vacqueras — 5 years ago

Domaine le Sang des Cailloux

Cuvée Doucinello Vacqueyras Red Rhone Blend 2014

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Once the funk blew off this #vacqueyras was in a great drinking state. Good body. Fine complexity. A well done wine. #domainelesangdescailloux #rhonevalley #southernrhone #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 1998

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

My first #chateaurayas and now I understand the hype. Very Burgundian in style but this is just a unique wine deserving its own category. This wine had profound complexity and was perfectly balanced. It is so young. #chateauneufdupape #southernrhone #rhonevalley #grenache #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

Jean-Pierre et Claude Roux

La Font de Notre Dame Rasteau Red Rhone Blend 2012

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

High alcohol on the nose and palate was very difficult to get by. All other structural components were medium and after an hour open I got some chocolate, faint red fruit, and faint herbs. This is neither an elegant nor complex wine. #rasteau #southernrhone #grenache — 5 years ago

Domaine Gramenon

Sierra du Sud Côtes du Rhône Syrah 2015

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A delicious #syrah at incredible value. Showing well now but should age well. Med to almost med + complexity on the nose. Blue fruit along with spice and violets. A firmly structured palate with great balance and good length. Sweet cotton candy finish. #gramenon #southernrhone #cotesdurhone #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago

Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1998

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A touch fading and not where I was hoping it could be. The alcohol was out of balance. #chateaudebeaucastel #chateauneufdepape #grenache #southernrhone #rhonevalley #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago
