If I Could Buy Only One – November 14th VINTAGES Release

If you could buy only one wine from this release, which one would it be and why?


Domaine du Chêne 2017 Saint-Joseph, Rhône, France
$29.95, Marchands des Ameriques Inc.

Michael Godel- It is rare to be gifted this level of concentration and quality in syrah at this price from the northern Rhône so get woke and make note of this lovely wine. Domaine du Chêne Saint-Joseph is indeed deep, dark, muscular, chiseled and handsome one and also tannic, but there is a softness in its belly. It’s also so bearable at 13 per cent alcohol. Already showing the light because of a vintage that sheds fat and anger early so this will just be amazing over the next three to five years.
