Top 10 wines in the US press

Côtes du Rhône 2010, Lieu-dit Clavin, Domaine de la Vieille Julienne, France ($25.90)

 

Bill Zacharkiw in the Montreal gazette said: “If this is a sign of what’s to come from the southern Rhône in 2010, then Grenache lovers will rejoice. Fresh, textured, fleshy and with a purity of fruit. Tannins are like razors. Delicate yet with some great depth. Drinks well now, but will be even better after two or three years in the cellar. Carafe two hours before drinking. Serve at 16-18C. Drink now-2015. Food pairing: lamb chops.”

    um, last time i used one, razors cut, so not sure i want to experience a wine where “Tannins are like razors”. hurts just thinking about it…and the alcohol burn after razors on the palate must be excruciating.
