Syrah more

As usual for me, I think a bit more age will help round it out. Very appealing now, though.

2011 Michel & Stéphane Ogier Syrah La Rosine

Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes more

5/27/2015 - john_s Likes this wine: 88 points

Very enjoyable medium weight wine. Still could do with a couple of years to round out the tannin, but it's delicious now. Practically no trace of age in colour. Quite exotic nose. Very well balance mouthfeel, quite delicious. The aftertaste is when you notice a bit of grape tannin, and I'd like to see it soften just a bit. This was served rather cool and I think it suited it.

2006 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Red Rhone Blend more

5/27/2015 - Raage Likes this wine: 93 points

Concentré et fin, malgré le millésime souvent puissant et musclé, ce Clos des Papes 2006 nous a emballé par sa richesse et sa pureté. Fruits rouges compotés et acidulés, Hleurs sauvages, herbes du sud, pierres chaudes pour le nez, et en bouche, une belle tension saline en finale, salivante, rafraichissante, l'alcool n'agresse pas... Un beau classique de l'appellation a ce stade.
Et Il a devant lui de belles années....

2009 Domaine Duclaux Côte-Rôtie La Germine

Syrah more

5/27/2015 - BuzzzzOff Likes this wine: 90 points

Lunch at Sat Bains in Robin Hood’s fabled backyard - without any fear of being fleeced by the hero/villain given we are not “rich” - was exceptional. We happily sipped the 7 glass wine flight suggested by the sommelier. A luvly Syrah from the Cote-Rotie, La Germine is perfume-like with spice and berries on the nose. Very soft with elegant tannins. Rich finish.

I really liked the 2011, but this is not my cup of tea. Seemed like they looked for silky tannins but pushed ripeness too far and ended up in the stewed fruit section. Stay away if you like freshness and crunchy fruit.

Lunch at Sat Bains in Robin Hood’s fabled backyard - without any fear of being fleeced by the hero/villain given we are not “rich” - was exceptional. We happily sipped the 7 glass wine flight suggested by the sommelier. A very pleasant Viognier with a happy and pleasant nose of ripe fruit. Lemon and citrus fruit freshness on the palate. Smooth finish.

Too young and brooding but the quality is there. Will be great in 2 years. I have a clear preference for the vv but I know a few that will like this better as it may be perceived as more classic vacqueyras, with plenty of herbs a bit more robust.

Brilliant wine, classy fruit and herbs. Elevage in Demi muids. Like 2011 not looking for ripeness here but aroma and perfect balance. This is clearly the big brother of the 2011, but with exactly the same flavor profile. Long but still tannic needs at least three years. Not to open before 2017.

Fruktigt med citrus, citrusskal och beska; aromatiskt, blommigt, gott och smakrikt, men viogner kanske inte är min grej.
Jag har en flaska till, och jag tror den klarar sig ett par år till, det fanns struktur i vinet.

Till en kycklinggryta med kronärtskockshjärtan, tomat, vin och dill.

As good as previous vintage but needs an additional year in the cellar. One of the nicest wines in southern Rhone regardless of price! Rich texture, fine acidity, bright yellow fruit ,honey, herbs. Great stuff if you can find it

2010 Xavier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Anonyme

Red Rhone Blend more

5/26/2015 - bestdamncab Likes this wine: 92 points

Consumed over two nights, dark inky color with a red rim in the glass, nose of mild barnyard, rubber cement, black cherry, plum and fig with a hint of pineapple sage that I grow in my gardens, more of the same on the palate, medium/big body, very ripe, tasty but not delicious, almost overripe fruit on the mid palate suggests it's a touch simple but the complexity is present in the back of the throat and during the long, long finish and aftertaste, atypical CDP. Better the first night than the second in my opinion, decant for one hour and enjoy, I am unsure if this will get better over time in the cellar. An hour later the wine is silkier and richer but still the same score.

Light yellow. Lemon flowers and stone fruit with a bit of viscosity backing up a mineral-laced finish. Fine acid structure. Excellent now, but not about to decline anytime soon. Excellent with food.

Good cork. One of my favorite wines for its soft tannins and flawless lingering finish. This bottle needed an hour to come together. Tastes like its on the decline but still delicious.

Cork was perfect. Intense fruit in the nose. Super ripe, raisiny, port-like. Probably past its prime but still tasty if you want a hedonistic treat.

opaque purple solid to the rim, dark fruit on the nose with a smoky/medicinal note that carried through to the first taste. Dark leathery fruit with undertone of smoke and herbi-ness. Alcohol still present, acidity in short supply. Tannin, smoke and herbal finish on the medium side. Drink-up.
