Flight 1 (10 Notes)

  • 2007 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc 91 Points

    France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan

    Bright, light gold, almost transparent color. Very close at first taste, I got mainly nice mineral aromas. It started to develop after an half an hour or so, then we got a terrific and complex nose with tropic fruits, citrus, minerals. A sense of oiliness in the palate, but not heavy. Good!(150$)

  • 2006 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 93 Points

    France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    Bright ruby color. Powerful and complex nose with many layers of aromas that makes it hard to crack; most prominent: ripe fruits, smoke and vanilla. Mouthful and full bodied, almost chewy. A lot of fruit and sweetness in the palate. Not too much acidity (it’s a Grenache based CDF), rough tannins. Excellent harmony and balance. Long finish. It needs a few years to soften. Excellent (125$).

  • 2007 Clos Mogador Priorat 92 Points

    Spain, Catalunya, Priorat

    Purple-black, inky and opaque. Stinky when poured to glass. Very strong sulfide aromas masked all other odors.After half an hour it began to expire and led to aromas of ripe fruits. Full, mouth filling body, a lot of fruit in the palate too, high acidity(85$).

  • 2007 Artadi Rioja Viña el Pisón 95 Points

    Dark and bright ruby color. Superb, excellent nose, with predominant red and black fruits and chocolate. Full-bodied, high acidity, soft and very well integrated tannins. At this point it is still a bit aggressive, but what a great wine! By far the best of the tasting (447$).

  • 2005 E. Guigal Ermitage Ex-Voto 93 Points

    Dark ruby, partly opaque color. Hard to believe that this wine rested for 42 months in wood. Very young but even now, rich and complex. Aromas of ripe fruits, chocolate and smoke. Full bodied and mouthfilling, with soft tannins. Needs a few years to develop and soften (397$).
