2007 vintage, it's actually Grenache Syrah Mourvedre 50, 30, 20. Very nice blend. Deep purple color, leathery dark fruit and a silky smooth finish. A bit more "fruit forward" and less earthy than what I would have expected. Reminds me of a California S...

Another winner from Jean-Luc. Yesterday I had one of their 2007 Cotes du Rhone so I was inspired to try this one today. This one is less fruit forward, more leathery and earthy, nice black licorice, cinnamon, and lingering tobacco and blackberry jammy ...

It consists of 80% clairette and 20% roussanne and was named in honour of the Le Vent wind that sometimes blows in the Rhone valley.I started the bottle last nig... Read More
With an impressive read on the French label, it sounded like this rose' was worth a go. Colour was a bit of a warning, as most rose's I enjoy are a light to deep pink with a boarderline red. Scent was light, a bit floral and also concerning but taste is what matters. On the pour, it seemed very peach. Peach? Okay, trying not to judge a wine... Read More
Pretty golden color. Faint and pleasant tropical fruit aromas. Quite light-bodied on the palatealmost watery. Not the fruit that the aromas forecasted. A bit of bitterness. As the wine warms up a bit, though, some more fruit flavor emergesapple as much as anything. Also, viscosity seems to change. An OK wine, but not a great wine. Read More
Light peachy pink. Juicy strawberry, nectarine and other stone fruits. Slight medicinal quality. Seemed to have some heat but alc. is only 12.5%. Palate was a bit underwhelming. Read More
