Tasting notes, varietals, grapes - anything related to wine
I'll add Alain Voge to that list of modern cornas. You can list most of these producers are "classic" but there are different levels of excellence even in the classic camp.

It is if the 2015 pricing form that same retailer was $190 the year before...
In San Francisco (Kermit Lynch) the Reynard sold from $255-$299 and the Chaillot sold from $220-$239. I also picked up a 2016 Reynard 1.5 liter for $575.00. I was able to get one bottle of 2016 Reynard from New Jersey for $229.00. That being said, one New York retailer called me offering the Reynard at $380.00 a bottle, I passed. Is Wine bow really that much higher than Kermit Lynch to justify such a high price? Locally I bought everything I could knowing prices are not going to get any better in the future.
I find the descriptive use of floral pastille flavors, indian spice, asian spice, spice cake, fruit cake and star anise used on all of those wines. Description wise you would think Clape, Domaine Courbis and Allemand tasted similar. They are three very distinctive wines.NoahR wrote: ↑May 13th, 2019, 6:02 pmHas anyone noticed that absolutely every Cornas, St. Joseph and Cote Rotie from any producer young or old is “classic” “traditional” and “old school”?
Other than LaLa’s and maybe Chave Hermitage, and some well known producers who basically don’t have to work too hard to sell their wines, the exact same litany of adjectives is and has been bandied about. I cannot tell the difference based on descriptors between Allemand and Clape and Gonon, Levet, Jamet, Juge, Alain Verset, Souhaut, Billon, Jasmin, Lionnat, Stephane, becheras, Balthazar, , Darnaud, Faurie, Faury, Gilles, Gerard, Souzet, Nodin, Etc. Are they all the same wine? That’s just the shortlist of what I’ce Been offered I. 15/16...
