Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2011

Almost perfect. Stewed fruit, great bitterness, extremely round and perfect tannins. Close to a grand cru burgundy in a good year with 10-15 years of age. — a month ago

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Clairette Grenache Blanc 2005

Salty elegance. Iper focused and lean, then punches your emotions out of the palate.
It keeps changing moving from orange and apricot to a beautiful mint and white pepper. Awesome!

Chateau de Fonsalette

Réservé Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2011

Great lunch. Highly perfumed fonsalette and even more so rayas against a very young and quite flabby Pegau. Elegance against power, feminin against masculin. — 3 months ago

Ex Arena Brigitte Chevalier Grenache Blend 2021

Really great value in a straightforward, honest, balanced Grenache. It’s grown within the Faugeres appellation but can’t claim the AOC apparently because it’s from deep sandy soils and not schist. No matter! Rayas grows Grenache in sand so there’s great precedent! Nose shows sappy kirsch-y fruit, lots of savory, mineral notes, and a touch of vanilla and spice. Soft and light-footed in the mouth. Quite dry, savory, and saline. Very soft tannin. Alcohol is relatively low at a stated 13.5. Drinking well now, it will certainly last a year or two longer, though I don’t think it will improve. I love wines like this. So food flexible. — 7 months ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2007

Delectable Wine

The 1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is served blind. I was unsure about the cleanliness of the aromatics here, although they coalesce with time, red berry fruit, singed leather and a light dried blood tincture. There's a touch of nail varnish in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a dash of balsamic, a little disjointed at first, but it gains harmony in the glass with plenty of Morello cherry and wild strawberry toward the finish. Fine, though the 2007 showed better two days earlier. Tasted at Burns & German's dinner to celebrate The Complete Bordeaux Vintage Guide book at Medlar. (Neal Martin, Vinous, December 2023)
