  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Domaine du Rieu Frais Syrah Élevé En Foudre de Chêne 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A tad bit less "umph" than I expected. So light bodied it has almost a watered down feel to it. Very subtle flavors that do open up with time. Nothing jumps out at first but a decent finish with hints of pepper and earth. Not bad but just not was I expected coming from Pauillac. Read More

  • Domaine du Rieu Frais Syrah Élevé En Foudre de Chêne 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Actually, 3.9 stars. Color, this sauternes has a nice, deep, golden color, very appealing. On the nose, very complex, dried apricot, caramel, honey, classic nose! Midpalate, oil think, full bodied, dried apricot and honey are interacting harmoniously, it completely covers my tongue. Finish, very smooth, textured, nice complexity, lingering in th... Read More

    Wine review by GavP


  • Happened upon this website yesterday.I've found that I'm hard-pressed to find other mid-twenty-year-olds enthusiastic about experiencing different wines, so I thought I'd reach out a bit here and ask you, my fellow professed wine lovers:A summer sunset on the patio (as will be me this evening): just you, a glass of wine, and a good book--what es...

  • Domaine du Rieu Frais Syrah Élevé En Foudre de Chêne 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is my first Sauternes tasting, so take this as you will. Bouquet reminded me of a vegetable garden, almost like tomato leaves. Rich, but not over-poweringly so. Drank with pears and blue cheese, which it is supposed to complement...didn't see what the big deal was there. Not bad, but I just don't think Sauternes is my thing. Read More
