2020 Guillaume Clusel "Rouge Serine"
In November 2021, on the very first day vaccinated Europeans could return to the United States, a just-landed, jet-lagged Guillaume Clusel made Compline Restaurant his first stop, pouring his wines to a group of wine pros, Syrah geeks, and folks starved for a food + wine experience like we used to have.
That wine dinner sold out in 36 hours. And justifiably so—his family’s estate, Clusel Roch, is on anyone’s shortlist of top Côte-Rôtie producers. Guillaume has been managing the estate since 2009, and this rare Rouge Serine gives as good a glimpse into his winemaking talent as any of the monumental, triple-digit Côte-Rôtie benchmarks he produces. Plus you can drink it now!
Grown at the top of the granite plateau that crumbles into the steep, terraced slopes of Côte-Rôtie, this is Northern Rhône Syrah at its most vibrant: olive-scented, etched in fruit and acid, and totally alive.
If you haven’t been paying any attention to South African wine, well, you aren’t exactly in the minority. No worries—this single-vineyard Chenin Blanc is a delicious education. Mick and Jeanine Craven, who met working harvest with Pax Mahle at Wind Gap in Forestville, are making concentrated, intense, dry Chenin from 40-year-old vines in Stellenbosch’s Polkadraai Hills. Chenin Blanc, sometimes called Steen, has long been South Africa’s most planted white grape, but it’s rarely been as stunning and sharp in the glass as it is here. (Loire purists, lookout!)
