2010 Domaine d'Ardhuy Côte de Nuits Villages Clos des Langres

Pinot Noir more

7/26/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: 93 points

Clear medium ruby color. Aromas of fig & dried raspberry, with expressive secondary notes of sous bois, melted stone, tea leaf and sandalwood. Similar red fruit on the palate, racy and intense, with strong secondary depth of dried flowers, earthy spice and melted rock. Medium+ acid- well integrated, with well-defined fine tannic structure. Really nice precision and presence on the palate. Finishes with dry and juicy red fruit, and good length. This can certainly age well, but at the great QPR it's a nice early drinker. Excellent.

2010 Saxum Broken Stones

7/18/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: 93 points

Drank over 2 days. Opened, decanted, drank half the bottle, and decanted the rest into an empty half bottle for day 2. A little disjointed on day 1- The notes are from the second day.

Deep, glass-coating, garnet-black color. Lots of secondary depth on the nose- led by cherry and cassis fruit, with dried lavender, spice and melted stone. Good depth but somewhat reserved. High intensity and concentration on the palate, complimented by very fine precision, balance and finesse. Showing a deep depth of fruit- plum, blackberry and red apple skin, along with mocha & cedar, rocky minerality, spring flowers and clove. Nicely balanced medium acidity emerged on day 2, along with big round polished tannins throughout. Finishes big with lots of depth of black fruit, flowers and minerality. A compelling wine, but needs 4-5 years before getting anywhere near a drinking window. If you're opening now- I'd open, decant, return to bottle 24 hours in advance of drinking.

2008 Cristom Pinot Noir Jessie Vineyard

Eola - Amity Hills more

7/10/2015 - MattMauldin wrote: 89 points

From 375ml. Clear dark ruby color. Earthy turned earth and mushroom notes on the nose, with tea leaf, allspice, balsamic and fig aromas. The palate starts with fig jam fruit and finely laid spice, mineral and pine needle depth. Juicy ripeness along broad grainy tannins. Medium depth on the finish. Not as ready as the 2008 Sommers Reserve I had 6 mos ago. Needs time for the stem-notes to further integrate on the palate.

7/5/2015 - MattMauldin Likes this wine: 91 points

Popped and poured. Medium ruby color. Aromas of fig & cherry, with allspice, sandalwood and dried crushed flowers, medium in intensity. Displays nice richness on the palate, along with an airy elegance. Really nice fruit intensity complimented with secondary tea and clove spice, along with slight notes of earth. Juicy acid, fine tannin, depth on the finish. This drinks like an SVD or reserve Pinot Noir- excellent overall, and a killer QPR.

Clear dark ruby color. Aromas of black cherry, rhubarb, dried lavender and cola. Rich on the palate with cherry and red currant fruit, fennel, licorice, earth, and hints of minerality. Juicy earthy tannins, finishing with notes of vanilla and fennel. As this has aged it's lost some of the stemmy complexity. Despite the high alcohol it has decent balance.
