Really enjoyable Syrah - deep dense blackberry that has a good grip on the finish.

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

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.

My second bottle of the 2015 Domaine de Thalabert and another solid showing if not ever so slightly less expressive than the previous bottle. That being said, this was a lovely compliment to the venison stew and I’m still quite bullish on the future of these.

This is still a very young baby Hermitage, but is delicious even now if you give the tannins time to mellow. Will be especially fantastic in 5+ years.

Nose of prune, blackcurrant, pepper, leather, and earth. Big tannins on the palate, with notes of tart cherry, oak, loads of pepper. A great wine that will get even better with age. I will definitely be purchasing a few more bottles to hold.

Really quite nice now and will get even better as it unwinds. A big bouquet of violets and licorice root made me drool in anticipation of a fat, beefy Syrah. But this was surprisingly light and smooth, with juicy red fruit and green olives popping out on the first taste. We had it with beef stroganoff at Wally’s.

Enjoyed it. Wasn't as full bodied as I was hoping.
