Chaillot Cornas Syrah 2014

Another great wine from the master showing balance with power & finesse, elegance, floral that will only get better in the next 20 yrs but so good now showing a perfumed nose of dark cherry, berry fruit, licorice, spice, violet, mineral & tobacco. — 6 days ago

Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2019

Fourth MS serving…this is awesome and a revelation bc I haven’t had luck with C-R. Aroma is fascinating, on the palate far more tannic than the Barolo just now - blackberries, pepper, bacon - a great red meat wine. A French napa cab. KLWM — 23 days ago

La Mouline Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1990

Had this ready to go for our last meal in NYC but learned no outside wines allowed. So consumed before and after dinner. A shame since this was in a near perfect spot. Notes of red and black fruit, smoked meats and bacon, some anise and lots of spice. Silky and smooth in the mouth. Huge finish. Everything you want in a great bottle. — 20 days ago

Ha! Funny story. So I had opened this in them a.m. but subsequently learned I couldn’t bring it to the restaurant that night. So we drank most of it before, come back after dinner, and I split the last of it into two pours. I’m about to take this photo and my wife comes by, “I’m done” and pours hers into mine. And I snap it. So there’s the story behind the story. 😀

La Petite Chapelle Hermitage Syrah 2013

2013 vintage. The second wine of La Chapelle, that is now named " Maison Bleue", but an excellent wine in its own right. At 9 years old this is absolutely gorgeous with an expressive nose of blackberries, wild flowers, pepper and leather, enhanced by a subtle smokiness. In the mouth it combines power with elegance, with pure fruit, subtle spices, silky tannins and great length. Terrific value if the mythical La Chappelle doesn't fit your budget. Abv. 13,5% — 2 months ago

Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah

2 hr decant. Expressive on the nose. Unmistakeable old world funk, mixed with pepper and earth notes. Medium bodied. Very fresh cherry fruit with an undertow of cedar, leather, and cured meat. Acid is prominent, tannins are fine and integrated. Still many years ahead. Good, but not great. — a month ago
