2010 Dauvergne Ranvier Costières-de-Nîmes

Red Rhone Blend more

6/18/2015 - Fausto_Coppi Likes this wine: 88 points

Rustic Rhone based character with added green leaf aromas and flavour. Well balanced and developed more depth and structure 24 hours after opening. Nice wine.

A year and a half later. Time isn't helping this wine. Fruit is fading a little and the wine isn't gaining any depth or complexity. Still ok with food but not a drink to savor...

Grenache based blend with a nice nose. Spice dominates on the mouthfeel with restrained fruit. Short finish. Okay for the price point.

Glossy, spicy, polished, perfectly quaffable. But short in flavour and slightly dilute. Too expensive at just under £9.

Nose of smoke, meat. Fruit is faint. Ripe mid palate, very ripe finish that contains plenty of fruit and acidity. Simple but enjoyable. Maybe just a touch of heat on the finish.

P.S. With time, raspberry cream becomes apparent in the nose, but also becoming increasingly apparent that this is not a particularly complex wine, and is done in a round and ripe style - but the acidity saves the day.

Grenat intense.
Nez, très discret au départ, poivre, mures, cassis.
En bouche, tanin a gros grains, astringence bien présente, un peu chaud, n'est pas a son mieux maintenant, mais semble manquer de fruits pour la longue garde...correct. C'est amélioré avec le temps, mais toujours aguleux. Toujours pas convaincu...

2012 Dauvergne Ranvier Lirac

Grenache Blend, Grenache more

3/19/2015 - Eboracum Likes this wine: 88 points

Lirac is often quite heavy but this one is fleeter of foot than most while retaining medium/full body, savoury fruit, good acidity and a firm leathery tang on the finish. Good wine and excellent QPR at €6.

Excellent Rhone - we paired with a nice goat cheese with ash and it was perfect. The wine is very smooth on the palette, with an easy finish - grapes are throughout and really pairs well with this cheese

2009 Dauvergne Ranvier Vacqueyras Vin Rare

Red Rhone Blend more

1/18/2015 - jeffal66 wrote: 88 points

Perfumed, herbal and savory. Plenty of garrigue. Fairly straightforward Rhone red, medium-plus tannins and medium finish. Earthy and stewed. Good everyday Vac but lacking verve and disappointing at nearly 30 bucks.

Deep purple color. Nose seems closed to me. Good black and red fruit on the palate, but none of the expected lavender or anise notes. Very drying --but persistent--finish.

This is my second wine from this young négociant firm and it bolsters my feeling that it is a trustworthy source. The medium plus bodied and well focussed palate shows a lot fresh dark fruit with a metallic tang and lively acidity on entry and finishes with a liquor and liquorice tinged tannic bitterness which at first was attractive but became tiring. However selected cheeses made this bitterness recede and improved balance. Already nice drinking, I think that a little age should smooth the angles and improve complexity. Good.

11/11/2014 - Eboracum wrote: 85 points

This is my first experience of this négociant, who is talked of as up-and-coming by the French wine press. This wine is medium bodied and linear in shape with black fruit, pepper, lively acidity, slightly grainy texture and mineral backbone. Normally I give St.Joseph more age and get greater complexity but right now this one was lively and quite elegant drinking with veal liver, onions and French beans. Good enough for me to look for more of this négociant's products.

At the top of it's game. Succulent, spicy, lots of mid-palate depth - pretty much everything you want at the price-point. Very pleasantly surprised as I still don't consider Vac. To be super dependable 5+yrs from vintage.

A light Rhone wine. Had 12 bottles for a party and got rave reviews from red wine knowledgeable people as well as medium red wine drinkers. It held its taste for pre dinner and during dinner. Nose is weak.

I could have written the exact same review as my predecessor on this wine except that my positive experience with the producer was with a 2010 Cote du Rhône which led me to buy this Hermitage. I'll let my remaining bottle sleep in the cellar and see if anything better comes out later.

Pretty decent actually ,especially for the price of about £7 in a French supermarché three years ago. Blackish and fruity but not at all blockbuster. Smooth, spicy edge was a little faint but added earthy notes made it more interesting. Would buy again at the price.

- Brick color. It's overly acidic with a medium/full body. Linear texture with a medium finish - opened and drank without letting him time to breath, nothing special, acidic and some tanin. tasted the second day, much smother, less acidic with still the tanin showing some aging potential, will try another bottle in 2 years.
