2012 Bernard Dugat-Py Gevrey-Chambertin Très Vieilles Vignes - Coeur de Roy

Pinot Noir more

2/12/2015 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 90 points

So young at this point but wanted to see where this wine is starting off. Palate is quite tannic of course, very grippy, but the tannins are fine and will integrate much more over the years. Nose is nice, black tea, black cherry, soy sauce, some sous bois funk that will show itself more in time. Going to grab a few more to lay down for a decade or so!

2012 Tissot (Bénédicte et Stéphane / André et Mireille) Chardonnay Arbois Empreinte

more

12/16/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 90 points

Definitely not the very oxidized style of white Jura that I really am not a fan of. This has lemons, wet slate, a hint of anise, along with a subtle red Burg-like funk (which I really like). Nice acidity, and well balanced overall. Went nicely with tuna steaks. Interesting wine with a good QPR. I blame you Dr. Jura!

Still a great bottle of wine! Gave it a couple hours in the decanter. In line with my last TN; blue and blackberry, meat, vanilla, black olives, flowers.

A long life left ahead of this wine.

2009 Mongeard-Mugneret Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Orveaux

Pinot Noir more

3 hours in the decanter. Fairly open at that point, but could certainly handle more air time. This could definitely use another decade or more in the cellar to mature and develop.

Black cherry, cranberry, burg funk, hint of anise, sap, soy, spices (white pepper, black cardamom), coffee, a slight creaminess to it, nutty, slight smoke/oak. Tannins are fine but still very present and grippy. A bit of heat to it as well, guess that's some of the '09 ripeness coming through.

1999 Denis Mugneret Père et Fils Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Saint Georges

Pinot Noir more

10/30/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 91 points

Decanted for about an hour. Very nice, classic Burg funk/sous bois come through what is a pretty big and still tannic wine. Black cherry and tea over top of the funk. Still so young though, I almost regret opening it! Might get a few more bottles and check back in 10 years.

2005 Hubert Lamy Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Frionnes

Chardonnay more

8/1/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 91 points

Slight hints of butterscotch (slight ox) under apple, lemon, lime, slight smokiness, brine, wet slate rock, acid is noticeable on the fairly quick finish. Good value, and will keep for a few more years.

Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

Great young bottle...could have used a decant to open up more, but was still excellent. Florals, tea, cherries, spice. Hints of barnyard/sous bois, earth. Always a treat to have a DRC.

Pinot Noir more

Really like this wine again. Have drank more Burg since the last bottle, and this is still really good.

Soy, hint of oyster, black tea, mild wet fall leaves.

Tea, cherry, smooth tannins but they could smooth out more.

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 95 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Bottle was great to start, but went flat quicker than I would have expected.

While it was there though, the mousse was silky smooth. Notes of heavily toasted bread, red apple, hazelnut are all throughout this wine.

2000 Sine Qua Non The Boot

California White Rhone Blend more

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 94 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Very good. Quite a fatty nose, some honey, but very reminiscent of some of the SQN Syrahs. It just smells like SQN to me. All kinds of other things going on here too: roses, honeysuckle, coconut, straw (hay).

Changed my mind about what Marsanne/Roussane can do.

Nice bottle, good experience to sample it!

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Great bottle that was really firing on all cylinders. Funky meat, soy sauce, roses, cranberry, hints of tomato sauce, bell pepper, graphite. Texture was silky smooth, great structure still, with several layers of nuances. Long finish.

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 91 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Still showing fairly young, with tannins to spare. Distinct notes of coffee, blackberry, eucalyptus, white pepper. Didn't seem up to the level of the other CA Cabs.

2002 Larkmead Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Solari (Reserve)

Napa Valley more

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 95 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Had some similarities with the '85 Stags Leap, seemed like a younger version in some ways. Green pepper, raspberry, cassis, lavender, very smooth and well balanced. Seems to be drinking well and in a nice place, but most likely can easily last another decade in the cellar at least.

2007 Progeny Winery Cabernet Sauvignon

Mt. Veeder more

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 94 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Bottles was decanted for 12 hours, and was still very tight. Leftovers were tried the next day, after almost 30 hours of being open, and it was finally ready to go.

Once opened up and rounded by some air, this was silky smooth. Blackberry, dirt, white pepper, hint of florals.

Give this much more time in the cellar, or a very long decant.

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Decanted 10 hours. Very young, but incredibly smooth and balanced. Lighter than expected. Perfumed nose with blackberry, eucalyptus, rose water, blackcurrant, earth.

Finish is easily 60+ seconds. Lots of life left, and am sure this will evolve into something even better. 95+

Syrah more

1/17/2014 - WineBerg Likes this wine: 94 points

Send-off in Style (Bourbon Steak, DC): Basically a pop 'n pour. Bacon fat, smoked meat, plum sauce, black cherry.

Still seems on the young side, but has finesse and balance to last and improve.
