ON THE RHÔNE AGAIN – 3 bottles
This set combines wines from both the northern and southern Rhône. It includes a rare white from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Rare because only 10% of the wines made in that appellation are white and very few of them are exported.
J Denuzière St. Joseph 2018
A juicy and full-throttle Syrah, drinking effortlessly and so amazingly balanced from start to finish. Not to be missed. A total crowd-pleaser and benchmark Northern Rhône wine and classic St. Joseph.
Domaine St. Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2018
A Jeb Dunnuck 95: gorgeous, rich…perfectly balanced and pure…white flowers, honeysuckle, white peach, and ample minerality…medium to full-bodied…loads of texture…brilliant Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that makes a mockery of so many
Domaine St. Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2017
A Jeb Dunnuck 93...the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape should be purchased by the case…ripe, sexy style as well as complex notes of ripe red and black currants, graphite, melted licorice, and incense…elegant texture…a terrific example of the style of the vintage.
