We knew it was super young but couldn’t keep her hands off of it to compare to the 1995 we had just enjoyed. Opaque ruby color, tightly wound. Good potential in 3-5 yrs

Reserved, delicate, and yet generous with time in the glass. Opens up to a beautiful accompaniment to charcuterie with notes of peppercorn and boiled ham. Slight VA > Brett gives it a lift. Drink now.

I had yet to try the 2015 Domaine de Thalabert when I noticed a bottle staring at me on the shelf at La Buvette so, naturally, I had to grab it. Popped and poured; served on the spot with Boeuf Bourgogne and Raclette with Paris Ham. Tightly wound at this stage but there’s a lot to like already. Blackberries, violets and black pepper on the nose. Blackberries, spices, savory smoked meat and minerals that suggested a dried blood-like quality on the palate. Firm but fine tannins. This bottle was very well liked by our crew and worked very well with our meal. I’m pleased to have some in my cellar.

2015 Jabolet Domaine de Thalabert Crowe’s Hermitage—Earthy/mineral nose with dark, juicy fruit aromas. Very dry with blackberries and cassis, licorice, black pepper. Ripe fruit entry that expands mid palate, mouth filling with firm structure and fine grained tannins. Long, lingering finish. A memorable wine.

Biodynamic farmed, 60-80 years old vines, pebbles ended soil, 100 % Syrah. Aged in French oak, 20 % new. Green olive, black pepper first impression, beautiful Violet comes second, mostly with red and dark cherry note, black berry, mineral, warmth, lots of layers with dimensions. What a beautiful Syrah.

2010 vintage... deep, dark and brooding but just beginning to open. Full, savory and dense with great acidity and texture.
