Rebecca scored this wine: 92/100

A wine that will please any Brunello lover! Smokiness on the nose with a complex development on the palate: Notes of black cherries, cassis, star anise, complete with some mint and spice. Medium to full bodied wine - it has a rich feeling and good acid on the finish. Can age for 5 more years and become even more complex with the years, but also tastes great right now!

Rebecca scored this wine: 91/100

Intense and robust with evident tannins, this blend of Grenache and Syrah has an interesting combination of vibrance and freshness with a round, ripe fruitiness. It has rich, cooked raspberries, balckberries, plum, anise and black tea on the palate with a smooth, complex development. A deep wine that needs to be accompanied with big dishes. The finish is long and mouth watering. Quite exceptional especially considering its price point!

Rebecca scored this wine: 91/100

A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre that is organically farmed and aged for 12 months in concrete tanks. Full bodied and rich - quite a complex wine with very smooth tannins. A seductive nose with black plums, red currants and dried fruit, while on the palate there are dried dates and red/black fruits combined with wood and acid on the finish. Has a lingering finish, with earthy notes and spice. Very good value!

Rebecca scored this wine: 90/100

A traditional Rhone blend of mainly Grenache, with Syrah and Carignane. A boost of black cherries, spices and cassis are evident on the palate. Medium to full bodied with a good structure, soft and smooth tannins, barn yard notes and a well balanced acidity. Enjoy this wine with food, especially heading towards a braised lamb or deer dish.

Juliénas

Château Fuisse Juliénas 2016

Rebecca scored this wine: 90/100

Made by Antoine Vincent, a fifth-generation winemaker; barn yard notes, a medium bodied Beaujolais with soft tannins that are barely noticeable. Plums, mushrooms and earthy notes, with some red fruit and a slight acidity on the finish. Exceptionally food friendly - you can enjoy this wine with pink fish, poultry and veal dishes. Very appealing, easy drinking and fresh on the palate.
