Solid dark fruits, full bodied with a bit of tannin.. Smooth and drinking very pleasantly. I would rather keep this wine in cellar for at least 3-4 years to see if it could further develop..

Drinking very well along with Pavillon de Poyferre 2009 and Chasse Spleen 2009 at that night.

I believe Antonio posted a very positive report. Justin C mentioned trying six also bottles are all mediocre at best and often TCA tainted. This once again showed TCA like taint like the . Not sure what is going on.

A sexy Bordeaux wine - medium to full bodied.. Dark fruits, mainly black currant.. solid with tannin dissolved in the wine.. very interesting but somehow remind me similar experience with Château d'Armailhac 2005 tasted before..

This stuff is special...reminds me of a baby Gonon. Classic pepper nose with a touch of olive. Just a hint of steminess on the palate. Glad I have 3 more bottles of this left.

1999 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Romanée St. Vivant

Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/21/2015 - dcwino wrote: 95 points

The fruit is almost blue, blackberry and black cherry, lovely floral note, vosne spice and a hint of black truffle. Exceptional concentration, generous fresh dark fruit driven palate impression, good acidity, nicely integrated tannins and lovely long finish. This is a youthful big scale wine that still needs time. It is really impressive and reasonably ready to be enjoyable. Love to taste this in ten years.

2010 Trapiche Malbec Terroir Series Finca Suarez Lastra

Mendoza more

5/22/2015 - jamieirving Likes this wine: 92 points

This single vineyard Malbec is made with fruit from La Consulta, located at 1,070 metres. It's deep red in colour with ruby red edges. I found plenty of dark berry fruit and an interesting hint of citrus. Very full bodied. Layers of fruit, pepper and spice with well integrated oak. Lovely fine grained tannins on the finish. Excellent!

This so beautifully demonstrates “An iron fist in a velvet glove”. Very precise nose displaying pure red fruits, raspberry essence and cherry, truffle, grilled meat, flowers and strong presence of mineral. Very good concentration, lean and precise, strong presence of mineral, just right amount of acidity, nicely integrated tannins and clean seamless finish. Quite youthful but more mineral than fruit driven. Very polished wine.

2010 Château de Saint-Cosme Côtes du Rhône Les Deux Albion

Red Rhone Blend more

5/21/2015 - Swaggering Beaunie Likes this wine: NR

The tannins have finally settled down enough for this wine to be drinkable, although it still has plenty of tannic grip. Very good now, and a great accompaniment to lamb. Recommended with rich or fatty meats.

2008 Livia Fontana Barolo Villero

Nebbiolo more

5/22/2015 - Charlemagnefinewines Likes this wine: 90 points

This wine needs serious decanting- i should imagine anything under 7-8 hours would be an injustice. It also needs serious bottle age for the tannins to settle and polymerize. The next day it was soft and typical to the appellation. Just a lovely wine. I am glad i waited as on the first hour it scores in the low 80's, but given that time window it dastically improves and is really a delightful offering.

Subtle nose of unfocused fruit. Medium to full bodied, dry, quite fruit driven and aromatic, showing mineral and spicy notes. Difficult to distinguish different fruit flavors here, but I would lean towards vague grapefruit. Still balanced and rather refreshing.

This wine is fantastic. For a 2nd wine it just makes one beg the question: what is the Grand Vin Like ? the harmony in this wine is just sublime. This wine blind, I would bet will compete with anything out of Napa at the $350-$400 level. It is just beautiful, sleek, elegant & harmonious, unforgettable. A profound effort.

Not quite sure what happened here. The wine seems correct but the fruit is dry, plum and rustic. Very rustic palate as well. Good concentration. It seems correct.

Beautiful wine; light and feminine. The wine opened up amazingly before our eyes over the course of an hour or so. Yes the acid is high and yes it is more mineral driven with the fruit present but not dominate.

I found this a bit too tannic. It took a while to open up and even then the fruit flavors where somewhat muted. I would give it more time.

I liked this more and more. At first, very cold, was singular, but a clear obvious statement of Viognier. Later, with air, and as it warmed a little it was more expressive, especially with spiced cauliflower. I think the cumin seeds in the cauliflower were what made the best pairing.

2010 Domaine Parent Pommard La Croix Blanche

Pinot Noir more

5/22/2015 - Charlemagnefinewines Likes this wine: 92 points

This is a famed lieu Dit. 2010 is an excellent Cote D'Or vintage. the only problem is supply. For the money, and I mean Lieu dit wines from the Cote anywhere between $50-$100- this is excellent value. Lieu dit wines are really cru wines, but for some reason the missed out on the Cru word on the label. Part of croix blanche is 1er cru i believe. This wine exhibits lovely purity of fruit, intense and persistent. just like the makers. Very good, and with 7-8 more years will be excellent

5/21/2015 - Gordonium wrote: NR

Enjoyable bottle, but ours seemed a bit over the hill. Nice CR notes of roasted meats and flowers, but they were somewhat overshadowed by Old Wine aromas of mesquite, old mushrooms, and Sweet Baby Ray's. Tons of sediment, and a rather turbid appearance in the glass, so standing upright for a day or so and then careful decanting is recommended. I will say, I was pleasantly surprised by the lively tannin and acid structure. This wine felt great in the mouth, never tired or overbearing.
