What an amazing bouquet on the 2015 Gourt de Mautens, @jebdunnuck seriously called it here. This Rhone blend was seductive from the onset, showing a mix of ripe blackberry, black raspberry, crushed violet candies, lavender, stone dust and a hint of animal muskiness. On the palate, textures like liquid silk wrapped around the senses as a display of remarkably fresh yet saturating red and black berry fruit seemed to hover, dispersing violet florals, licorice, minerals and hints of grippy herbal tea-like tannin across all that they touched. Balanced to the core, with brisk acidity making light of the wines amazing textural depth and resulting in a finish that was both impossibly long, amazing fresh, yet structured all the same. I can still taste the purple inner floral and dark fruit tones, having lost track of how long the finish has been going. It’s hard to fault the 2015 Gourt de Mautens for anything, and incredibly easy to become lost in it. #rhone #gourtdemautens #rasteau

Phenomenal wine from Vaucluse’s best winemaker. Half Grenache blended with a potpourri of other Southern Rhone varietals. Reminiscent of Beaucastel, but more powerful. Big, bold wine that dances on the tongue and evolves over the course of the evening. Highly concentrated and complex with layer upon layer of kirsch, blackberry, garrigue, spice, and white stone. On the palate, you can even detect some hints of dark chocolate. The wine is extremely good now, but I’d suggest cellaring for a decade to bring out all the layers. 2015 vintage on Oct 13, 2019

Sensuous, exotic, balanced. Beautiful, expressive nose. Fruit, flowers, minerals, earth. I’m in love.
