1998 La Mondotte

St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/20/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 96 points

This smells great, with its chocolate covered cassis, plum, smoke and truffle filled nose. Full bodied, rich and deep, with freshness, sweetness and purity of fruit, the wine finish offers good length and volume. However, there is a masculine quality to the structure to the wine, at least at this moment.

Red Rhone Blend more

This bottle was finished far too quickly. With its forward, luscious character, ripe, sweet, cherries and kirsch, pepper, thyme, garrigue, and silky textures, it's easy to understand why.

2009 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Deus-Ex Machina

Red Rhone Blend more

5/18/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 97 points

Blending 60% old vine Grenache and 40% Mourvedre created a beauty of a wine. It's incredibly rich, with decadent, lush, silky textures, waves of liquefied kirsch, velvet tannins and a mouth coating finish that does not quit. Yeah, it's young. But it's so good, it's hard not to want to pop a bottle.

1982 Château Canon

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/17/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 95 points

At 30 years of age, there are no great wines, just great bottles. This was great bottle. The floral, cherry blossom, crushed stone, forest floor and cigar box aromatics were enticing. On the palate, the patina of silk and velvet that accompanied the wave of fresh, sweet, ripe, pure cherries felt great. Popped and poured, the wine got better and better in the glass. This is worth finding a few bottles, if they have good provenance.

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.

1990 Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/17/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 92 points

Mature, with the patina of aged silk in its texture, a nose of floral, truffle, plums and cherries and soft,fresh, clean, but not quite exciting, slightly dusty finish. The wine was very good, but it seems to lack the level of excitement expected from a 1990 Pomerol. I'm happy to drink what I have, but I would not buy more to replace them when they are gone.

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend more

5/16/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 96 points

Truffle, espresso, dark chocolate and ripe plums garner your attention initially. But it’s the juicy, sweet, ripe, black fruits that feel like they were polished with velvet cloths, before they were turned into wine that makes you take a step back. The sensuous, polished finish is fresh, pure, long and silky.

Medium bodied, classically styled wine that is better on the truffle, thyme and black cherry nose, than on the fruity, but slightly rustic palate. This is a wine to drink in its youth.
