  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • J.L. Chave'Mon Couer' Cotes-du-Rhone 2014

    Snoothrank:

    2nd in the Flight; Interesting aromas of Barbecue and roasted Green Chile. Dry, but soft in the mouth with well balanced Tannins and Acidity. Becomes more nuanced as it sits in the glass, with more herb and earth. Not bad at all $10 a glass, but retail is $21. Very surprising a 2014 so well rounded and enjoyable. Definitely a 'go to' wine out an... Read More

  • This is the second part in a three part series on wine prices over the past decade. Part one can be found here, and today I follow up with part two, a look at Tuscan wines and the wines of the Rhone Valley. I love Tuscan wines and I love Sangiovese. Pure, fresh, fruity and austere all at once, it’s one of the greatest food wines on the planet, a... Read More

  • Jean Louis Chave Selection St Joseph Blanc Celeste 2009

    Snoothrank:

    It is always a joy to drink this wine. I love its purity and find it to be one of the most exciting expressions of the Northern Rhône's most impressive white grape, Roussanne, that doesn't break the bank. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed sweet floral notes, black tea, stony minerals, earth, black pepper and a hint of parchment. On the palate, it was velvety and savory with excellent balance showing sour berries, black soil, bell pepper and leather. The finish was beautifully smooth and lasting. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Huge, floral nose. Stoney and green. Light bodied, high acid, heavyish tannins. A little elusive for me. May have wanted food. Read More

  • Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage 1996

    Snoothrank:

    Super fine, subtle game and herb notes, smoky dried beef, limestone dust, stem and smoke, like a pillow around my head. Bright and finely balanced, this is so elegant with great inner mouth energy. This is layered and bright, showing raspberry, light rare beef and spicy floral tones on a palate. Shows nice flesh growing to frame the acid. Lovely... Read More
