1990 Bernard Bachelet Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière

Pinot Noir more

6/28/2015 - Vini Ciclismo wrote: 89 points

Good deep colour.
Quite deep and plummy with some sweet fragrant red cherry tones. A mixture of older and earthy with some youthful bright fruits.
Soft but fleshy and with good acidity. Earthy and with a deep plummy flavour, some soft herbal spice, clearly developed and a bit beyond its peak. Nevertheless drinking well and still with some youthful character.

Strong vanilla on the nose.
Sweet raspberry, super ripe style, Zinfandel candied fruit, very fine tannins, still has structure, very fine tannins, "odd" flavours for a burgundy but pretty good for its age.

1934 Dr. Barolet Echezeaux

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/1/2015 - Vini Ciclismo Likes this wine: 92 points

Very clean pure berry nose with a hint of earth. Lovely rosemerry herb spice.
Plump fruit, soft but fleshy, a little nuttiness and forest floor but really not much developed characters at all, actually seems to lack a bit of personality. Unusually youthful profile and not obviously burgundy. Drinks well though.

Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

Earthy and fruity. A hint of volatility but fruit shines through.
Soft sweet red berries, forest floor, but with a faint oxidative character. Faded and on the light side but still tasty.

Romanée St. Vivant Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/1/2015 - Vini Ciclismo wrote: flawed

Volatile and porty with some sign of black fruits but dominated by oxidative characters.
Light, dull and nutty with primarily sherry style notes clearly not a good bottle.

1959 Domaine Marion Chambertin

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/1/2015 - Vini Ciclismo Likes this wine: 92 points

Lightly plummy with some complex earthy developed characters and a little funk.
Richly flavoured, opened up noticeably after a little time in glass. Certainly still has the earthy funky notes adding interest. A slight note of astringency does not detract.

Pure red berries with some obvious stemmy spice. Bright sherbet and lightly nutty oak.
Racy red berries, earthy and forestry, deeply flavoured with lovely balance. A light stemmy herbal edge on the finish adds spice and complexity. Delicious.

A lightly honeyed fragrance with some signs of development.
More honey on the palate, some clearly developed characters, but generally not a strongly flavoured wine. Finishes with good acidity.

Muted nose of gentle fruit with a saline and mineral edge.

Very pale colour, soft straw.
Beautifully fragrant grilled nuts, peach and citrus zest.
Peach, citrus fruits, very fine French oak spice and grilled nuts. A lovely smooth texture. A gentle honeyed finish which is smooth but very long with fine acidity and not a hint of astringency. Not quite the overtly powerful finish that might be expected but the flavours are pure and refined and very well integrated. No obvious development, drinking beautifully.

2009 Domaine de Cristia Châteauneuf-du-Pape Renaissance

Red Rhone Blend more

A beautifully lustrous deep red with a black core.
Black fruits and dried herb spice, fragrant violets and tar.
Soft and fleshy up front, blueberries and raspberries, violets, sweet ripe fruits, plummy, has an attractive dark vein of licorice and tar spice riding along on the generous sweet fruit. Evenly weighted and nicely structured, super fine tannins, all in a good place. A very impressive drink. Will improve but not a waste to drink now.

5/28/2015 - Vini Ciclismo Likes this wine: 97 points

Seppeltsfield WW1 Para Centennial Tasting 1914-18 (Randwick Racecourse, The Stables room): Very dark, black.
Classic deeply fragrant nose, fruit-driven, olive tapenade, creme caramel.
Slightly lighter frame than others, but with brighter fruits and a little more of the green olive tapenade richness, less pure black char and spice. Very long smooth finish.

Seppeltsfield WW1 Para Centennial Tasting 1914-18 (Randwick Racecourse, The Stables room): Very dark, black to the core.
Lovely rich fragrance. Smooth but intense, very dark fruits, strong earthy char, orange rind zest.
A step up in intensity if that's possible. Thick, powerful, but still silky smooth and very very long. Charred fruits, tar, burnt sugar, tart tatin, with a refined black spice and a hint of orange rind zest. Amazing.

5/28/2015 - Vini Ciclismo Likes this wine: 97 points

Seppeltsfield WW1 Para Centennial Tasting 1914-18 (Randwick Racecourse, The Stables room): Black and very dense, a faint green hue. After a swirl it literally takes minutes for the residue to completely slide back down.
Rich nose, vanilla is strong, butterscotch too, concentrated fruitcake, tar, caramel and a green edge of olive tapenade.
Thick and syrupy but with quite enough acidity to leave a clean crisp finish. The flavours last forever, incredible length. Flavours follow the nose with more of the sweeter crime caramel as well as bright concentrated berry flavours and a hint of pine needles. Slightly brighter fruit and more interest than the 1914

Gorgeously rich nose, fragrant reduced fruitcake, tar, caramel, vanilla and molasses.
Thick and syrupy but with quite enough acidity to leave a clean crisp finish. The flavours last forever, incredible length. Flavours follow the nose but with a richer darker seam as well as a faintly peppery bite.

Pale honey colour.
Honey, honeycomb, orange rind, fine oak spice, strongly fragrant, rich and impressive but smooth.
Rich and powerful, superb bright fruits, honeysuckle and orange rind, sherbet zest, lovely nutty oak spice, honeycomb. Silky slippery texture, good weight, very poised smooth finish with clean acidity. Delicious flavours, very rich, but the seamless texture Make it very easily drinkable. Does not need any time to become interesting, but in no danger of falling apart either.

Very pale, hint of straw.
Lovely smooth florals, sweetly fragrant with a hint of mineral spice.
Lemon citrus, honeysuckle, mineral zest, a hint of orange rind. Plump fruit with good weight, a strong weighty finish but without a lot of obvious acidity, relatively soft round finish. Drinks well, not for long keeping I suspect.
