Untamed Côte-Rôtie:
2021 Levet Côte-Rôtie Les Journaries

Les Journaries is unapologetically old-school northern Rhone, rendered with amazing clarity.

2021 Gonon Saint-Joseph:
Soulfulness and Delicacy in Saint-Joseph

It's no surprise that Gonon made some of our favorite wines of the vintage. A couple weeks ago, we tasted both Gonon's white and red Saint-Joseph, and they showed beautifully.

The Real Deal:
2021 Gilles Cornas

Of the new generation of Cornas producers, Guillaume Gilles stands out.

Cult Northern Rhône:
2021 Gonon Vin de Pays l'Ardeche Les Iles Feray

Les Iles Feray's signature is a pitch-perfect clarity with an intricate and detailed presentation of blackberries, olives, violets, spice, and forest floor notes wrapped around a smoke-infused minerality. This is authentic northern Rhône Syrah, rendered with the utmost care.

Classicism in Côte-Rôtie:
2021 Jamet Côte-Rôtie

In any year, Jamet's Côte-Rôtie is one of the great wines of the northern Rhône. However, something special happens to Jamet in brisker and more classical vintages. Anyone fortunate enough to have tasted their 1991 Côte-Rôtie can attest to this.

The Other Side of Jamet: 2021 Jamet Cote-Rotie Fructus Voluptas

The intention was to significantly depart from the winemaking of the flagship Côte-Rôtie. Fructus Voluptas sees little to no stem inclusion and is sourced from younger vines. This yields a more fruit-driven and immediate lens to view Jamet's winemaking.
