Mourvedre

Gramercy Cellars

L'Idiot du Village Mourvédre 2015

Mature and really nice. Nose has very pure, ripe dark berry fruit with a ripe peach note, smoky embers, and gravel. In the palate it’s soft and mouthfilling, with a rich texture that is not overbearing. Loads of stony minerality in a long finish. Tannins resolving. — 4 days ago

Château de Saint-Cosme

Gigondas Red Rhone Blend 2001

Presented to me double-blind at Tasting Group. The wine pours a deep garnet with a translucent core and burnished orange rim. Some signs of sediment. Medium+ viscosity. On the nose, cherry lozenges, Corinthian leather, rich mahogany, old books, espresso, baking spices, desiccated flowers…like something that reminds me of my great aunt’s potpourri, and bit of umami. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium (+?) tannin which is well integrated. Medium acid. The fruit and non-fruit characteristics are confirmed. The finish is laden with dried fruits leather and earth. I felt that the wine was old with 15+ years of age and leaned a little more towards its fruit character than its structure…so I called Barossa Valley Shiraz, 2005, from a quality producer. But then, someone said 2012 CdP and I was like…”ooooohhhh, I like that CdP call”. But if that was the case, it would have to be older…from a great vintage like 2001. Well…I was on the right track. Who cares, this was an awesome showing and the oldest Chateau de Saint Cosme I’ve ever had. Drink now and enjoy. — 3 days ago

Broc Cellars

Luna Matta Vineyard Mourvèdre 2012

Tasting great. Still some tart cherries and good acid. A bit of game and dark fruits as well. There’s a pine forest freshness to this one as well. I think 2012 was a shift in winemaking from the previous Mourvèdre vintages from broc. Still has a good amount of life left. — 21 days ago

Neyers

Evangelho Vineyard Mourvedre 2018

Earthy and dark fruited. At first I was worried the fruit was stewed, but it’s not at all. Ripe but good balance. Nice wine. 13.4% — 5 days ago

Bandol Mourvedre Blend Rosé 2020

A little earthy and brooding but it’s got that mid-palate zip of sunshine and flowers. Love me some Bandol. — a month ago

Domaine Santa Duc

Gigondas Red Rhône Blend 2010

2010. Needed time to open up and then paired really well with an assortment of mild Indian lamb dishes. It was nice to have wine after a long weekend of Pilsners, DIPAs, Sour Ales, and Stouts. — 12 days ago
