    October 4, 2019 - 1994 Allemand Reynards. Lunch at QCH. Very typical Allemand character with redder fruit and that attractive but balanced hint of wildness; there was a compelling cooked meat element alongside black olive notes. Better than previous bottle, really lovely *****

    February 20, 2016 - They don't make 'em like they used to (New York City, NY): There's a marked contrast between this and the Trollat St. Joseph. Whereas the Trollat was light and breathy, this is dense and brooding. Rich and dark, and much more sultry. This has a very thick texture, bound together with leather and meat notes, as well as sweet black fruit. Velvety, but prominent tannins.

    February 20, 2016 - My first mature Allemand, and ... damn. The nose is meaty and dark, exotic, floral, just great with amazing lift and good acid. After sitting for a bit, some nice red spice comes out and you get this melange of spice, meat and funk ... just wonderful. So great on the palate - light, really exciting with lift, truly burgundian to me, some sweetness from fruit, florals, with dark funk and meat as well. Great acid and flowers on the finish. Nose - 5/6, Palate - 6/6, Finish - 5-5.5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5-2/2 = 17.5-18.5/20.

    February 20, 2016 - Excessibe Rhone and Riesling night (St. Marks Place Grand Sich, NY): Another thrilling wine (on a night filled with many of them), and a great companion to the '94 Trollat. This is much more vividly meaty, with saline, cured meat, and leathery elements framing black olives and red fruited flavours. Air and time bring out more aromatic complexity as bright floral and lower toned earthy notes emerge, and it's one of those wines that I could have happily been smelling all evening. It shows more richness and power on the palate than the Trollat, but there's remarkable elegance and finesse with each sip. Thanks Jay.

    (Thierry Allemand Cornas Reynard) Quite a dense colour, although a tawny-tinged maturing red. A lovely, expressive nose, with dense floral fruit. Good structure on the palate, tannic and somewhat backward. Creosote and coffee influenced fruit on a sweet, lifted palate. Very pure and a classic example. Not as mind-blowing as my last tasting two years ago, but still of very high quality.

    (Thierry Allemand Cornas Reynard) This wine has a dense, solid purple hue. Wow - the nose is packed with intense, primary, youthful blackcurrant fruit. The palate follows on, with lots of powerful fruit, fortunately backed up by lots of structure - ripe tannins and strong acidity. Although lacking in complexity or interest at present, I'm sure this will develop with time. This is one of the most impressive bottles from this appellation I can ever recall - no wonder they command such a high price.

    (Thierry Allemand Cornas Reynard) Allemand's other cuvée, produced from vines purchased from Noël Verset. Also a deep purple hue, but less opaque. Blackberry fruit nose, followed by a richly fruited palate. Lovely, firm tannins, although quite prominent and still to integrate fully. Some notes of cloves and oil of oranges. A lovely wine.
