Tasted Thursday, December 20, 2012 by dcwino with 436 views
Gabe organized a fun tasting with the theme “The "I need to taste that before I buy more..." . It was meant to be trying the recent mail order wines but we ended up with cornucopia of wine. I didn’t take any formal notes but these are the wines that I enjoyed the most other than the 85 Monprivato and the 78 Vallentino both en Magnum.
I wanted to do this blind but ended up tasting none blind. There is a big gap and while I think the 1ers are good buys at $100, the village is not worth $59 that I paid. I am loving the 10 Raveneau 1er crus.
Once again the Chaves clearly expressed their unique characters. The Rayas was wonderful.
I bought the 09 Beaune 1er Cru 150 based on Antonio and a friends recommendation but I am close to the 90 even with my inflated rating system.
Wonderful surprise and if you are a cal cab lover, you need to check this one out.
Once again, we all had wonderful time. Thanks Justin for hosting us.
