Memorial Day Barbecue Mash Up (Los Gatos, California): Very deep purple/ruby. Smooth and round. Beautiful black fruit intertwined with graphite and herbs. Today we had a chance to appreciate a full bottle and particularly appreciated how fine a food wine this is.

Memorial Day Barbecue Mash Up (Los Gatos, California): Deep ruby, pretty striking for Gamay. Anise and black fruit. Medium weight, pretty chocolatey feel, dense dark red fruit. Acidity could be sharper and some wood is very much in evidence throughout.

Memorial Day Barbecue Mash Up (Los Gatos, California): Yellow. Briny, citrus aromas. Terrific texture and beautiful balance between ripe citrus fruit and underlying tension and structure. This has proven to be an exceptional value Premier Cru wine over the years I've tried it.

Memorial Day Barbecue Mash Up (Los Gatos, California): Medium yellow. Complicated nose of distilled beverage and herb more than fruit. Some citrus elements but a real herbal infusion like an acquavit. Dry, moderate acidity, very complex. I could easily have mistaken this for an Austrian Riesling.

1997 Château Roûmieu-Lacoste

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

5/24/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Half bottle. Orange/amber color. Ripe orange and apricot with just a twist of higher toned perfume. Medium weight, moderately sweet, adequate acidity. Pure fruit but somewhat simple. At its peak now.

2009 Lucien Crochet Sancerre Rouge La Croix du Roy

Pinot Noir more

5/24/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Dull red. Lovely nose of smoke and black cherry. Medium weight, actually quite ample for a Sancerre rouge. Char, deep red fruit, and a dusting of soil. Excellent finish. This is well above class for a Loire Pinot and would be a great ringer in a Premier Cru Burgundy tasting.

2009 Vincent Dauvissat (René & Vincent) Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons

Chardonnay more

5/24/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Light yellow. More briny than citric tones. Medium weight, lovely feel, and like the 2009 Forest, more structure and acidity than is immediately evident on the rich entry.

Gamay more

Medium ruby. Black cherry and earth aromas. Light to medium weight. Much more open than past bottles with juicy fruit and crisp acidity. No excess fat. Entering a really good drinking window.

1993 Dominique Laurent Clos de la Roche

Clos de la Roche Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

5/23/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Tan label (so probably not a Vieilles Vignes bottling, but who knows with Laurent). Slightly cloudy light red without much fading. Menthol and strawberry fruit. Medium weight. A soft, resolved feel is only disrupted by some ending acidity. Savory blend of soil and red fruit with the tannins largely resolved. An excellent, completely mature wine that falls well short of Grand Cru depth and distinction.

2004 François Raveneau Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre

Chardonnay more

5/23/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Still remarkably pale and primary appearing. Primary smelling too-saline and underripe lemon joined by white flowers as it warms. Lean, sharply focused, and crystalline. Only begrudgingly does it yield some lemon cream and texture, and that after being open for a good 2 hours. Thrilling in how long it has taken to unfold and its great potential over the next decade. This is the essence of the vintage rather than Raveneau's style.

NV Jacques Selosse Champagne Brut Initiale

Chardonnay more

5/22/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Late 2011 disgorgement. Yellow, mild mousse. Wonderful ginger and citrus aromatics. Medium weight but deeply flavored with tremendous acidity and fine stoniness. This held up and evolved beautifully over 3 hours and more than stood up to a wide array of dishes.

2007 Chéreau-Carré Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Cuvée des Ceps Centenaires Comte Leloup de Château de Chasseloir

Melon de Bourgogne more

5/22/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Light yellow with a glint of green. Briny nose. Light but picks up glycerine with air. Bone dry. Bitter citrus followed by a rush of stoniness and soil. Three years ago, I said it would last for ages, and this bottle did nothing to change my projected time frame. This is incredibly young and mouthwatering. I imagine that some would find it too austere. Another amazing Muscadet value.

Over 2 nights in the refrigerator, it developed some creaminess and even deeper lemon fruit. This clearly has a long way to go.

2009 Foradori Granato Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT

Teroldego more

5/22/2015 - drwine2001 wrote: NR

Light ruby. Riper fruit nose here. Black cherry fruit on the round attack, but then foreshortened by astringent wood and a harsh finish. I'd pass on this one too and stick to the basic Teroldego that is less dressed up.

Medium ruby. More secondary aromas than the basic 2011 cuvee. Medium weight, more earth than fruit and grippy finishing tannins and acidity. Not very pleasing at present.

Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT Teroldego more

The basic Teroldego bottling and my favorite compared to the higher end wines. Deep ruby almost opaque-great looking. Medium body. Very pure blackberry fruit with a light dusting of herbs. Not terribly tannic. Well balanced for current enjoyment.

Same color as the 2013 Manzoni. Less forthcoming nose. Also medium weight but less texture. Less fruit here and more clay. This struck me as somewhat neutral.

Out of magnum. Absolutely even deep ruby. Fantastic, harmonious texture. Medium to full bodied. Downplayed Cabernet varietal elements compared to the 2011. Long, poised, roundly tannic. Very well positioned for a long, graceful run.
