7/2/2015 - PeterH wrote: flawed

Bought this bottle around 1999 or 2000. Been saving it for 15 years. Stupid me. There's some PremOx in there. Color a little darker than I'd like. None of the matchstick or acid/creme brûlée mix that you're looking for. If I'd been served this as a house white, I would not have sent it back and would have been fine with it. But this is not a 'house white'. Ah well...

Disappointing. Very, very reserved tonight. Especially for Grossot. Perhaps closed down, already? If corked I sure couldn't smell or taste it but lacking mid palate flavors. I'm mythed? Usually, one of my favorite producers. Little bit of grapefruit and minerality at best.

Bt breathed, deep opaque with nose of espresso, and over time more fruit emerged. On palate, there is overwhelming sweetness that dwarf any structure in the wine, concentrated though linear.

Nice balance and finish. Well made but not much for interest. First of 6, will be a nice Tuesday nighter for years to come. Not a fabulous QPR.

2010 John's Blend Shiraz Margarete's

7/2/2015 - tlm66 wrote: 92 points

Loved this wine. Big and full, syrupy, but not overly so. Very Australian but with a slightly softer touch. No stewed fruits/plum, which I like. Dark fruits, a nice acidic bite, and tannic but balanced. Cannot really see this as a long term wine so good to go now. Only odd issue.....more sediment in this wine (at only 5 yrs) than any other wine I have ever seen. Excellent QPR at US$35 or so.

On the lighter - aperitif style. Bubbles quite big. Medium intensity nose of mild quince and stonefruits, surprisingly there was a whiff of meat aromas, resulting from oak influence, which added to the complexity. Generic, a bit broad on the palate, could have had some more minerality. Not as bad as I thought it would be. I didn't find it especially interesting, but I don't think that all the critique is justifyable here.

7/2/2015 - Biggsy wrote: 92 points

Quite a bold straw colour. Lovely and aromatic, starts citrussy but evolves with aromas of ripe melon and honey. Still tastes so youthful, light on it’s feet but with real depth of flavour and really good acidity. Fruit led for the first glass, rounds out with more honeyed, spicy, waxy notes and a little lanolin character. Really very good and very youthful still. No rush if you have any of these.

This could keep an army merry. Its big, bold and masculine. It is ripe and you get dense black cherry and some dried fruit aromas and flavours. There's some tar and a little Christmas cake spice. Tannins are abundant and supportive.

Smells of plum, dark cherry, bitter chocolate and iron filings. It is meaty, muscular and very savoury. Fruit is ripe and there's generosity to the wine. Length is good with chewy Barolo tannins. Drink this while your 2010's age.

7/2/2015 - MSheargold wrote: 89 points

Dark ruby colour becoming more translucent.
Initially spice and pepper notes allowed to sit some hints of straw/asparagus.
Not much fruit, earthy flavours, hints of Tabbaco also the peppery notes punching through. Decent length.
Seems tannins are mostly broken down. Wouldn't think it would last much longer than 3-4 years especially as it doesn't have much fruit to balance it.

7/2/2015 - BillyT wrote: 97 points

My third bottle and everyone consistent with the other and one of the best Champagnes I have every had bar none. Previous notes apply. Sorry, once again drank for my 65th at Fortaleza do Guincho in Portugal so more interested in the food, my beautiful wife and great Champange and 89 Baron so I didn't take copius notes. In fact not one. But between the two wines it was a great birthday and even greater wine and food experience.

1989 Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/2/2015 - BillyT wrote: 96 points

Had this at Fortaleza do Guincho in Portugal for my birthday. We started with 96 DP Oenotheque and moved on to the 89 Baron. Stunning, there is no other way to describe it. Unfortunately or fortunately the sommelier and I know each other but he didn't realize I had confidence in him and he waited to open until we arrived. So our first taste was only after 30 minutes decanted. At that point it was starting to express dark fruit, balance, but some residual tannins and acidity. 15 minutes later in the glass this wine was singing and it held up over a 2.5 hour dinner. I'm neither sophisticated or knowledgeable enough to use all the winespeak everyone uses but I can speak this...one of the finest Bordeaux I have EVERY tasted and want to start my treasure hunt today for whatever is lurking in shops and cellars :-).

7/2/2015 - Jeremy Holmes wrote: NR

Dolcetto is all about lively, juicy fruit and this one is a beauty. It is like biting into a just ripe blood plum. There are notes of berry, violets and a hint of earth. It really dries off towards the finish and leaves a savoury impression on the palate once swallowed. Delicious stuff.
