  • Michel Gassier Costieres de Nimes Nostre Pais Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon meringue, peach and green apple aromas, somewhat simple but pronounced and pleasant. This has a tart, round and creamy palate of grapefruit, lemon and pear with restrained oak spice and zesty acidity yielding to dried herb towards the finish and a slow fading warmth. Read More

  • Marrenon Grand Marrenon Luberon Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Round and chubby aromas of juicy white peach, tangerine and potpourri on the nose. Thick and silky in the mouth with chewy candy tropical fruits, fresh melon and lemon zest, this is mouth coating and carries a bit of heft with it, but is a bit lighter towards the finish, with excellent length, cantaloupe and chamomile flowers, with a dusting of ...

  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc "Saint-vincent" 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A great aperitif for winter or late fall parties (Thanksgiving comes immediately to mind) that is tasty, easy quaffing and good for the budget. That describes this Gabriel Meffre Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc to a tee...with an orange rind and tisane nose and a follow-up panoply of flavours that include ginger, peach, honey and herbal tea. Finish is on... Read More

  • Chateau de Saint Cosme Cotes du Rhone les Deux Albion 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Inviting and elegant this has red berry fruit, spice, incense, modest tannins and well balanced acidity to the lively, though short aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

    Wine review by boglebogle


  • Had Foxall and family over last night. Heard E-Mark hosted as well, so please ... ... it looks like this is a Clairette, Marsanne blend which makes a lot of sense as it didn't have the elevated acidity I'd expect from Sauv Blanc, seeming better for early consumption, this wine was clearly aged longer than necessary, but still held up fine for...

  • Right, that doesn't quite add up, must vary vintage to vintage. In looking ... dominated with a touch of Clairette in there, assuming about 65% Grenache. Anyhow, it's some of the best CdP out ther Read More

  • Brunier says the grenache is 60% of the blend, Cinsault 5%, Clairette (white) 3-4%, Syrah 15% and Mourvedre 15%.  That starts at 4:25 on the video.  It only adds up to 98-99%.  So I guess it's lighter than other CdP. ;-) You can also find the composition at Kermit Lynch's page.And he also says all the wines from VT are great at ten years.  There...
