The 2005 Dujac Clos de la Roche was an interesting follow-up, as 05s would have it, to the 2005 Ponsot Clos de la Roche that we had out of magnum in Switzerland. Whoa! I know that drinking a magnum of that is infanticide, but when there are no bottles and only one magnum on a wine list, and the magnum is priced the same as bottles are already trading (and there are six thirsty guests with us), what’s a wine lover to do? Drink the damn thing before someone else does, that’s what! The Ponsot was so concentrated and thick, brimming with every possible fruit imaginable that it felt X-rated just smelling it. However, on the palate, at least out of magnum, it was very shutdown and closed already and difficult to evaluate, although there was no doubting its potential greatness. I have to admit I felt bad about opening it, but then again, if I didn’t, someone else would have :). Ok, back to the Dujac…this was much more classic in its expression, its blackberry fruit mixing with the earth, the leather, the spice, the citrus and the rust. The blend of earth, pitch and spice were tremendous. The palate also had great definition, lip-smackingly good, with very defined acidity and fresh, balanced hints of citrus, green bean and mahogany spice. This was super stuff, already bordering on legendary. The nose was deep, deep inside, deep deep down inside (that’s for all you house music fans). Blackberry and cola joined the party, and the palate was so expressive, just popping out of its pants. Special stuff, and it will be sure to climb the point ladder in time. 96+ points

The 1864 Kola was something old, odd and rare dug up by the Rock. It was a Burgundy shaped bottle, and it barely had a label, just 1864 Kola in practically calligraphy on a small strip, very old in appearance and nature. What was inside was a glorious Madeira, but was it real Madeira, or actually Pinot gone wild? Perhaps the original recipe for Coca-Cola? Well, all that we will never know, but it was damn good, whatever it was, basically a Malmsey-style Madeira, thick and syrupy in its nose with aromas of baked, brown-sugared beans and sweet raisins. It was a definite sinus-cleaner, with a rainbow of nut aromas and flavors, macadamia meeting molasses. The owner of Ma Cuisine observed, ‘C’est bon, a little sweet but the alcohol (is impressive)…’ It was so rich, so concentrated and so full of alcohol, incredibly delicious, both hearty and soft at the same time, and a slice of history that will most likely never be seen again. Thanks to the Rock for that one. 95 points
