Vibrant, fresh, and lively, as well as reserved at the moment. With coaxing, you find spring flowers, cherries, licorice, thyme, and a touch of smoky oak. The supple, lush, and slightly polished finish hit all the right notes. Drink from 2024-2037.

Peppery black raspberries, herbs, smoke and spice come through easily. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, lifted, energetic, soft and juicy, with a crisp, sweet, red berry finish.

Loads of olives, garrigue, meat and pepper mix with the layers of red fruits, soft, silky textures and kirsch filled finish. The wine is medium-bodied, elegant, fresh and should drink well on release.

A nice, open, silky style of Hermitage with elements of flower, pepper, smoke, black and dark red fruit. Full-bodied, with soft, lush tannins and a sweet, juicy, ripe, spicy, red fruit finish, give it just a few years in the cellar and this will be fully ready to go.

Deep ruby in color, the wine shows off its smoke, wet earth, pepper, black raspberry and rustic cherry nose easily. On the full-bodied palate, the wine is round, tannic, herbal, peppery and cherry filled, with a green olive note in the finish.

Elegant, silky, fresh, soft, pure, clean, smoky expression with loads of sweet red pit fruits on the nose and the palate. Forward in style, you can drink this with pleasure now, though it will be even better with a few years of age.

Fresh exotic cherries, peppery spice, smoke and herbs pop almost before being asked. It only gets better on the palate as the wine is silky, fresh, forward and inviting. With loads of peppery zest, this is already showing really well, and it is only going to get better from here.

The deep, purple color looks great in your glass. And that's just the intro as the nose offers spice box, incense, flowers, smoke and red fruits. The sensual texture has no hard edges, instead it's all about the silky tannins, freshness to the fruits and the peppery edge in the finish.

I am not sure I have ever seen a Chateauneuf du Pape from Vidal Fleury before. Spicy in character, with incense, sweet red fruits and smoke catches your attention. Medium bodied. fresh and forward, with a nice style, there is sweetness to the red fruits here. This will drink well on release.

Light in color and fruit, this is also easy to like, due to its sweet, peppery kirsch charm and soft textures. This is a nice, enjoyable, quaffer, that does not pretend to be anything else.

With a beautiful floral nose, made even better with its smoke, earth, wild cherry, blackberry, stone, spice and espresso nose. Silky, polished, lively and fresh, medium/full bodied, with sweetness and purity to the dark red and black fruits that is good now, and will be better with age. For a Cote Rotie of this quality, the wine is priced quite fair, as Cote Rotie is an ever increasingly expensive appellation.

Young, full bodied, bright, vibrant, crisp red berries, flowers, smoke and licorice are found on the front end. Sweet, lush, concentrated and fresh, with opulent textures, the pure, spicy cherry liqueur in the finish really stands out.

Medium bodied, fully developed, the wine offers wet earth, pepper, underbrush and bright, red berries. Soft, open and fresh, if you have a bottle, I'd pop a cork over the next couple of years.

This charming, crowd pleasing wine is made from a blend of 65% Grenache and other Rhone varietals. Soft, round, sweet, medium bodied, with spicy kirsch in the finish. I'd drink this over the next year or two.

Fully mature, and then some, yet, even though the wine was clearly hanging on to life by a thread, there was still enough, earthy, spicy, fresh, bright red fruits and herbal notes to be interesting, especially considering its age.
