The wine is made of 75% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre,5% Syrah.
The wine shows nice density in the nose, ripe red fruits, cherries, earthy and slightly spicy.
In the palate, the wine is smooth, shows freshness, cherry and raspberries, light tannins. Its easy drinking, with medium acidity and finish.
Beautiful everyday drinking. A wine to have by the glass in a bar with charcuterie or light dishes

2019 Domaine Gramenon Côtes du Rhône Poignee de Raisins France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône
87 points
The wine is pure Grenache.
Its quite reductive in the nose (so decant or use big glasses), very funky, needs time to clear up but then you get floral notes with raspeberries.
In the palate, the wine is again light, very fresh, raspberries, cherries, medium tannin. Its riper than expected with medium to high acidity, freels harsher, needs time to settle down. The 14% alcohol is a bit more upfront, steely finish.

Traditional method sparkling wine from Gringet which (I was told) is a clone of Savagnin.
The wine shows nice golden color.
In the nose, the wine shows fresh riep citrus fruit, mineral, crispy fruit.
Smooth in the palate, nice body, ripe citrus, pear and green apple. A lot of carbonation offers creamy palate and medium finish.
Halfway between a nice prosecco and sparkling from Alsace.
Refreshing sparkling

2015 Maison Valette Mâcon-Chaintré France, Burgundy, Mâconnais, Mâcon-Chaintré
The wine was flash decanted before tasting.
The wine shows hazy color.
In the nose its quite powerful, showing citrus, minerality, "low intervention" profile, earthy, grapefruit and lemon peel.
In the palate, the wine shows strength, high acidity, fresh citrus fruit, again grapefruit and lemon peel, medium body and long finish.
The wine still feels very young and definately needs food
Red
2013 Domaine Ponsot Chambolle-Musigny Cuvée des Cigales France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny
92 points
The wine was flash decanted
The wine shows purity in the nose, decadent, fresh red fruit, spice and smoke, thin oak frame, welcoming with sour cherry and raspberry.
In the palate, the wine is brutally fresh, still young, raspberry, medium tannins, high acidity and long finish.
The nose is more balance and feels more ready than the palate. Give it time

2017 Gros Frère et Sœur Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru
94 points
The wine is amazing in the nose, smooth, with black fruit, thin oak frame, flolar and enchanting with sweet spices.
In the palate, the wine is very young (but not as much as the Ponsot tried before), mineral with fresh raspberry, sour cherry, red cherry. It shows lighter floral notes, mineral and spicy, medium body and long finish.
Obviously still a baby
