2007 Azienda Agricola La Torre Brunello di Montalcino

Sangiovese more

5/15/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Good brunello from a rather forward vintage. Ripe nose of cherries and plums with a floral and mineral hint. Ample acidity to balance the ripeness of the fruit. Good food wine that should be part of your dinner table in the next three years. Good solid wine.

NV Diebolt-Vallois Champagne Cuvée Prestige Blanc de Blancs

Chardonnay more

5/5/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

LP11-base wines 2010, 2009, and 2008. Very young bottle of prestige..still tight and youthful. This has improved in my fridge for three days. This cuvee is best after 2-3 years in a cool cellar. Brioche, rep tart apple, with a hint of cream, citrus, and minerality, and good acidity. Good champagne

I am a big fan of the Diebolt champagnes. This is a young champagne that is beautiful right now. Great fruit, minerality, and acidity. Paired perfectly with some truffle stuffed gougeres.

2006 Tenute Dettori Renosu Romangia IGT

Cannonau, Grenache more

4/5/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

In regards to notes i agree completely with the last taster. Three plus years ago this reminded me of a still lambrusco. It has morphed into a fruit foward wine with great balance. Shocked by how much i appreciate this now. Not falling apart this wine and can go longer in a cool cellar.

Some light structure here considering it is from a disappointing vintage. The wine is pure and fresh as one expects from Metras, but this is a wine that will always be stuck in 1st gear I believe.

2004 Domaine Tollot-Beaut Corton-Bressandes

Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

3/19/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Good deep fruit with a hint of a savory element. Minerality and acidity are balanced. A bit of spice and earthiness balances the savory element. This is a good 2004, that is young, and will be better in 5 years.

2002 Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant Brut

Chenin Blanc more

3/19/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

My purchase notes indicate that this is from the 2nd disgorgement from 2009. Agree with French 16 that there is not a lot of effervescence. However the acidity and the overall balance of the wine is impeccable. The fruit is classic Chenin from the Loire. Just a great bottle of wine. Excellent

Obviously young but this is a great Chenes in the making. Everything will come into place but has great depth of fruit, minerality, and acid, and so elegant with a great finish. Very good 2011

2010 Bruna Grimaldi Barolo Camilla

Nebbiolo more

3/6/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Good young vine barolo from Grinzane Cavour. Good acidity and minerality..dark red fruit with leather and licorice. This gets better and better as it ages..best in 5 years..good polished tannins..no dusty fruit..traditional in that it was raised in larger botti. I like it and paid only $16 for them at a Zachys sale..great qpr!

2004 Fattoria di Petroio Chianti Classico Riserva

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese Blend, Sangiovese more

3/6/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

This is a dark fruited and deep fleshed riserva. Great floral and earthy hints and wonderful structure underneath all that flesh. Super long finish. This wine needs another 10 years in a good cwlksr to really strut. I am glad i have 2 bottles. Sangiovese and Colorino/Canaiolo from Castelnuovo Berardenga (southern tip of the zone).

2000 Gaston Chiquet Champagne Spécial Club 1er Cru

Champagne Blend more

3/1/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Excellent champagne (see previous notes) that is perfectly balanced with lush fruit and acidity. Just great enjoyed at Bistro Campagne in Lincoln Square with a carmelized onion streudel and brandade croquettes. Fell in love with this champagne while visiting Nicolas Chiquet in Dizy and have a been a big fan ever since. I adore this vintage of the Club.
