  • J L Chave St Joseph Domaine 2010

    Snoothrank:

I find these lists pretty useless, since the best use that anyone could get from a topic like this, is to find... Read More

  • Everywhere I turn, I see people talking about 2010 in the Rhone (both north and south).  Lately, I've been on a mission to taste a lot of these wines and so far I've found some good, some bad and some that really would be better poured over pancakes.  In some cases, I've agreed with some of the wines being pushed by the "wine critic illuminati"....

    Snoothrank:

    Gorgeous vintage for this. A bit round but totally expected considering that most '05's were everywhere in France. Read More

  • St Joseph Rouge 'Offerus' Jl Chave Selection 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Great stuff. A little more angular than the '05's that are also drinking perfectly right now. Tasted in a vertical from '01 to '08. Read More
