amelioration vs la dernière bouteille, l'alcool s'est estompé quelque peu, en bouche c'est un peu plus viandeux, un peu de fumé avec un final bien digeste.

pop n poured. followed over 5 hours. Consumed with traditional burgers on the grill

This wine has had good interval development since my last tasting in 2012. While mild in its expression it has acquired a more savory and gutteral character. Gone are previous grapey initial flavor profile, although traces of this remain throughout the mid palate. The fruit seems like it may have been a warm year there (?). There is a bit of hollowness in the mid palate and the finish doesn't quite get there. There is some intermittent heat poking through. I would agree its old world in character, but it is not wearing a beret.

Nonetheless, a very decent effort and BBQ wine at the $24 I paid for it.

Difficult to rate because it might have been ever so slightly corked. Great material though. Everyone enjoyed it, but I detected a bit of dusty closet on the mouth and nose.

Maybe I had a bad bottle, but this did not taste as great as a Cote Rotie should. That "oomph" was missing.

Did not stand up to the bottle of six months ago. A pleasing background smokiness on the nose complemented the spice. Good while it lasted but lacked staying power on the palate. A solid extant example of a '69 though.

3rd Deals Gastronomy Fair; 3/29/2015-3/30/2015 (Grande Bretagne Hotel, Athens): Rich mouthfeel, full nutty with almond and walnut, ripe stone fruit with peach more obvious, balanced overall and a medium to long finish. Very good quality, premium price for this one with some time ahead of it.

Medium-full body with some glycerin. Notes of dark cherries and dust at first. Opened up over time, revealing more dusty earth, then sweaty leather. Seemed to reach its peak about 45 minutes in, then it started disintegrating slowly 60 minutes in, seemingly hotter and exhibiting a thinner, medium profile marked by notes of violets and hay, resembling really more of a Southern Rhone. 13.5% ABV.
Should be in its prime in 2016.

Deep, dark, dense and monolithic now.. Not showing much. Unctuous minerally fruit beneath, hands off for now.

Really nice wine, with its meaty, olive tapenade,, blackberry and earthy profile. Big, bold and concentrated, the wine has depth of flavor and complexity in the nose, leaving you with a big dose of fruit in the finish.

Now starting to lag behind the Landonne from the same vintage. Dark fruit and spice on the nose with moderate earth notes. The palate starts strong but the finish is shorter than I want it to be. Will see where this settles in a couple more years.

Wonderful nose of blackcurrant fruit, violets. The palate is rich, blackcurrant fruit, soft as velvet some stalky, green herb notes and a tapenade finish. Still very good, I think the fruit is fading a bit so start to think about drinking them up.

Brisket, Bordeaux, and Rhones: Ripe but pure, with decent minerality, a little tang from the stems, and ample but ripe tannin, it may not be my favorite expression of Hermitage, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

J`ai décidé d`ouvrir un beau Sainte-Épine Saint-Joseph 2010 dimanche pour célébrer de belle façon la fête de mamans.
Je l`avais bien aimé lors de sa sortie il y a quelques années mais il faut admettre qu`il vieilli admirablement bien, tous on vraiment adoré.
Après un 2005 moins bien réussi, les derniers millésimes (2007, 2009 et ce 2010) sont sublimes.
Violettes, épices, viande et mures au nez.
En bouche, c`est tout en soie avec de belles saveurs de bacon, de poivre blanc et de mures.
Frais, digeste et délicieux tout en étant très long et persistant. Impeccable.
De mieux en mieux!

1999 Delas Frères Côte-Rôtie La Landonne

5/11/2015 - tinybubbles Likes this wine: 93 points

Still extremely youthful, this wine is finally starting to come into approachable drinking form. Boysenberry, black plum, duck fat, dark spice, and dry earth. Nutmeg and black pepper. Smooth in the mouth with front palate sweetness and mid palate savories. Requires 1.5 hours to fully open up. 93+, clearly upside potential here with more time. This is good now, but would give it a few more years

Very fresh and high on acidity for a Viognier. Typical notes of peach, honey, bacon(!), orange flowers and bergamot. Long finish and powerful concentration. A great wine that doesn't need more time in the cellar I think.

5/6/2015 - Derek Darth Taster Likes this wine: 95 points

Back Vintage Wine Night (Extra Space): Carefully poured into decanter and drank over 2 hours. Lots of coarse sediments left behind in the bottle. Initially quite tight, only opened up after 30mins of air.
Appearance is clear, medium intensity, garnet colour. Thin legs.
Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of mushrooms, earth, leather, smoky savoury meat. Developed.
On the palate, dry, medium+ acidity, medium- alcohol (12%), medium tannins with just a hint of grip, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of mushrooms, earth, leather, savoury meat, and fruit that is still alive - blackberry, black cherry, dark plums. Long finish.
Very good quality. I was surprised by my own wine. A Cornas from a good maker can indeed age well. Drinking at its peak now. Drink up by 2-3 years' time before the fruit dies.

Quite sublime, nuanced and satisfying. Nose: a dead-heat between red fruit and savoury spice. Palate: for me, spice and pepper yet my wife sensed more fruit with a touch of pepper. A real crowd pleaser. Decanted for 1.5 hours.

In a good place right now. Good complexity on the nose and palate with some tertiary flavours coming through: red and black fruit, blood and bone, bramble, liquorice and old leather. Medium body, medium concentration and a lovely spicy note on the finish. Tannins are resolved and well integrated. Drink now after a three hour slow ox or hold!

2008 Delas Frères Hermitage Marquise de la Tourette

Syrah more

5/3/2015 - StefanAkiko Likes this wine: 86 points

Simplest solution: just avoid this vintage.

En liten Hermitage från det usla året 2008 trillade fram ur källaren och det är bara konstatera att:
Syrah har allt det där som inte PN har, men saknar den där omedelbart delikata sidan av PN. Fastän detta vin inte på något vis stoltserar med fina titlar eller annat, så finns allt det där som jag gillar i vin på plats: strävhet, intensitet, umpa och ett helt tabernakel med köttiga, tjäriga, pepparkryddiga, oljejordiga aromriktningar. Ingen muskelpumpad fruktkompott, snarare rå verklighet.

Som sippvin ger jag den 85p (början på 'väldigt bra') för den har inte bara det 'bra'. Den är också vresig till sättet, kort i alla dimensioner och småaktigt torr i frukten. Lär dock inte vinna på lagring, men 'funka' några ytterligare år.
Till allt med sälta närmar upplevelsen sig dock 87-89p, då de vresiga syrorna gifter sig fint med sältan.
Gott, men långt från delikat.

5/1/2015 - Erik12903 wrote: 88 points

Clean, balanced, pure and elegant: cranberry, lingonberry, tar, licorice. At first, very muted and tight. Silky texture. Then after several hours a wildly invigorating nose with hints of real complexity. Still quite austere on the palate. Recorked and put in the fridge over night.
2nd day the nose is again muted. But the feel of the wine is there's a lot of energy and fresh, mineral-laden fruit and that while perhaps never great, some years in good storage and this will be much more interesting.

This one has definitely improved over the last year. Upon opening it was a little thin with a very short finished. Several hours later it had filled out and was a solid CDR. The following day, the tannins had softened and the flavor profile blended together better. First day I would rate 85 second day I would give it 88.
