Community Tasting Notes 4

    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Randomly back-to-back with the Chaillot. Again a towering and intense nose that is boldly aromatic with classic Northern Rhone notes. The palate is simply stunning in its combination of power and grace. Hedonistically delicious now, but will be a real stunner in 10 years. Upside from here.

    October 27, 2018 - Most of the 2015 Northern Rhones worth a damn, blind (Chicago, IL): Served single blind. How coincidental that the two Allemands ended up next to each other. Black fruit, with a bit of a black cherry ice cream note on the nose that implies delicious sweet fruit. The palate is really structured, with heaps of tannin and lots and lots of fruit. It's a svelte wine at the same time, with a silky texture and really lovely concentration. I had this pegged as the Balthazar Chaillot. Perhaps I didn't expect this wine to be quite so backward.

    June 8, 2018 - All purple and black like a fresh bruise. It is super-concentrated and very tight. Fruits are black and you get some licorice, tar, liniment and earth too. For its sheer size it is not heavy, with substantial tannins being buried underneath the flesh. It is far too young but should unfurl into something special in a decade or two.

    May 20, 2018 - 15 Allemand Reynard is an absolute bruiser. All that purple violet minerally intensity that allemand is known for is hiding underneath a thick mass of structure and tannin. You can shake loose some of that exotic blue and purple fruit on the palate, you can feel the intensity lurking under the waves. Hold off for now or decant for a long long time.
