Very good balanced example of Les Clos. Great power of fruit, mineralt, and acidity. No signs of pre-mox. This bottle is young and could have gone longer in a good cellar. Impressed by this bottle!

2002 A. Margaine Champagne Blanc de Blancs Special Club

Chardonnay more

6/27/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

This is drinking great right now. I tasted this champagne years ago at a tasting with Terry Thiese and he informed me that this plot if my memory serves me correctly I believe is heavy in clay. At the time i thought the champagne fat and boring. Last night and today i find the minerality and acidity in balance with the flesh. Long finish on this. I cant wait to open another one of these.

2008 Domaine Bernard Baudry Chinon La Croix Boissée

Cabernet Franc more

6/19/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Not ready for prime time yet. More structure than flesh at this point on the palate. Great chalk on the palate

2nd-4th day-wine improved and started to show its flesh. Enjoyed more on days 2-4

2000 Gaston Chiquet Champagne Spécial Club 1er Cru

Champagne Blend more

6/15/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

Just a killer champagne. I tasted this initially with Nicolas Chiquet at the family home. Great acidity, white plums and pears, flowers, truffled honey and bread dough. This bottle was brought to Husk in Nashville as part of an incredible meal..Paired perfectly with shrimp and grits, crispy chicken skin, and johnnie cakes with chipped beef and pimento cheese.

Pinot Noir more

6/8/2015 - Sheila62 Likes this wine: NR

no hint of 2004 green. This was good, but was riper with more dark fruits than I expected from this vintage. Good structure with good acidity. I will wait a couple of years before opening another one of these.

My third time tasting this wine in this vintage and it is spectacular. The structure is massive but the balance will be impeccable upon maturity. I need more for my cellar.

2002 Domaine / Maison Vincent Girardin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Romanée

Chardonnay more

6/3/2015 - Sheila62 Does not like this wine: NR

Lifeless at this stage. No pre-mox here just no energy and not enough fruit left to keep one interested. Impeccable storage..so I would say drink these up, unless this is a one off bottle.

I really enjoyed this. Just a great example of red burgundy. This is drinking perfectly right now. Wonderful fruit mainly red with some darker plums with a great earthiness. Acidity is very good and the wine is in complete balance. Wonderful with our lamb chops and duck breast at Restaurant Michael. Fabulous

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.

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
