This is why we age wines. So smooth, seductive, and mature. A flash of images of old age yet to come, but not this year. Loving that even modest unpretentious wines can reward us so.

Remarkably decent for a 5 year old bourgogne blanc. A little oak, vanilla notes but still bright and fine to get the palate up for dinner. A bit of citrus not flinty as I thought to expect. Excellent QPR

Cherries and dark berries with plum. Subtle tartness. Easy drinking but nothing of particular significance.

Mushrooms and a clean forest floor on the nose - Good strong tannins and definitely the best of the LB tonight. This actually appeared to be the youngest and has many more years of life in it.

Full bodied and rich with a hint of fruit in the main body

Medium to full bodied bright straw color getting lighter at the rim. Mild citrus and green melon on the nose. Tart acidity on the attack with refreshing peppery citrus on the mid palate and a long finish. Nice and crisp..good daily drinker but can age further.

Deep dark purple. Very subtle nose with a hint of blackberries. Smooth and well integrated on the palate really coats the palate but doesn't overwhelm. Just great balance with a smooth medium finish. Really drinking well think it's better than the last bottle.

purple slime on cork on two bottles. super tannic and acidic. one bottle had a deep underlying funk. returned to seller who said it was natural and the way the wine was supposed to taste. Tried some from a bottle they had open - similar, but theirs was still better. either a flawed bottle or just not for me.

Two hour decant helped this plush curvaceous beauty to open. I get raspberry in front of the oak on first sip and then something slightly bubblegummy towards finish. Not overbearingly but a nice juicyfruity segue. A bit of heat still here as she bites you playfully into finish.

Pale yellow. Grapey, citrusy nose. No buttery taste..Hints of pears, figs, and grapes. Taste is somewhat overwhelming. Needs another year or so of ageing to soften its impact

Loads of juicy blueberry and spice. Nice little bit of minerality and tannins. Medium bodied. Great QPR for an everyday Italian at $12. Perfect for spaghetti and meatballs or pizza. Value gives it an extra point so I'll agree with WS on this one.

I love it.
Fresh reserved nose waiting for the oxygen to have its effect. Beautiful tight clinging legs. Gorgeous color, not too deep but certainly not bricking or fading. Perfumed nose nothing overtly identifiable. Terroir? Full round mouthfeel gathering tannins slightly bitter finish.

Glorious nose. Many said it could be a Barolo. Maybe it is great QPR. Garagiste does it again. Burgundian in its deceptive depth against reserve. It keeps unfolding into something growing, not leaving its DNA behind but growing with air. The above bitterness is growing into an acidic fruit informed edge. Think the edge of and ice skate blade. Spraying character and Piedmont. Fantastic. Kind of dreamy.

When I let wine do the talking and I shut up and listen I am so enlightened. Drinking this is like talking to a person from another culture, one who, if I listen, will teach me something. After twenty minutes, while showing its youth, it's character is not in question. Fine fine fine wine. Wow.

This is why I have issue with the numbers racket. This wine, like a person is growing and talking and expressing and revealing facets of character that when rated, do it great disservice. This is a class act. Should cost a lot more.

Ok keeps getting better, I am tasting evolution. Coalescing around excellence. Great bottle. Sorry I have only three left. Wow. A fine luxurious wine. Amazing.
