13 Chateau Maris, Les Amandiers, Minervois La Liviniere. Languedoc-Roussillon. 2,600
  94pts RP  
The 2013 Minervois La Liviniere Amandiers is a smoking Syrah that was bought up in small barrels. It has lots of sweet purple fruits, violets, underbrush and wood smoke to go with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra firm tannin and superb purity of fruit. A scant 3,000 bottles produced.

Showing a good depth of colour with loads of juicy, fleshy black cherries, thyme, cracked pepper and herbs. The wine balances perfectly being full bodied and elegant, with a soft, silky, spicy kitsch packed finish. Perfumed and floral with stone fruit and cherries, this is really a fine effort.
10 E. Guigal Gigondas. Southern Rhone.  2,800
91pts RP 91pts WS
  65%-Grenache, 25% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah  
From a great vintage that spent 24 months in older foudres. The 2010 Gigondas is a classic effort that offers quality spice, underbrush, loamy soul and mulled dark fruits. Medium bodied, rich supple profile on the palate. Beautifully done.
13 Domaine Jean Royer, Chateauneuf du Pape, La Sable de la Crau. Southern Rhone. 2,950
  94pts Vinous  
Mineral tinged raspberry and floral pastille aromas show outstanding clarity. Spicy, penertrating and energetic on the palate offering juicy red berry, cherry liqueur  and lavender flavours. A persistent finish which is firmed by fine grained tannins. Ultra-pure, elegant, sweetly fruited, the 2013 is a stunner in the vintage.
​M. Chapoutier Bila Haut V.I.T Latour cotes du Roussillon 
96pts RP 17.5/20 JR
Grenache/Syrah from the schist soils around the town of Latour de France, it offers a mineral drenched, slightly gamey profile with ample blackcurrant, licorice, wild herbs and spiced meat aromas. Full-bodied, layered and rich with ultra fine tannins and a gorgeous mouthfeel.
This gets close to the pinnacle of Syrah and will stand toe to toe with the greatest Syrah from the Northern Rhone and California. Unfortunately they're only produced in miniscule quantities.
10 Domaine Senechaux, Chateauneuf Du Pape 3,300

The 2010 is a hedonistic Chateauneuf Du Pape fruit bomb. Super rich with layers of glycerin and fruit. This full bodied classic smells like a Provencal open-air fruit and vegetable market. A full-throttle, rich concentrated wine from a top vintage.

From terroir consisting of sands with iron oxide. Vines 60 to 100yrs old. Shiny, quite dark red robe. Aromatic black berry jam with cordite on the nose. Full bodied with lots of floral & violet notes intermixed with chassis, crushed rock and pepper. Fine acidity.

The nose has airs of cooked plums, crushed raspberries, soaking and a firm backdrop of basalt and dried herbs. The palate coasts with stylish richness and  tasty tannins giving a complete wheel of flavour, dark fruits and black jam. This is rocket wine.

I have Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie, La Cote Blonde the slightest of edges over the La Landonne for its more aromatic floral nose. It shows the same unfathomable depth and richness married to a sense of elegance that marks the La Landonne and it also shows those wonderfully pure raspberry flavours. It's lush, velvety and incredibly long on the finish.
