2013 Harrington Trousseau Siletto Vineyard

Cienega Valley more

A very juicy, bright profile. Palate is lovely and lithe with a nice mixture of dark berries, red berries, soft florals, and some subtle earthy notes.

2014 Dirty and Rowdy Mourvedre 'ESPECIAL' Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard

Santa Barbara County more

6/30/2015 - tooch wrote: 90 points

Probably a hair below the heights of the 2013, this had the lithe, beautiful red fruits, spice, and floral notes. Despite the composition and form, it all seemed a bit less complex than last years. Lovely wine...I think I suffered from going into my first bottle with incredibly lofty expectations.

Tasted and smelled like older Beaujolais. Spiciness and earth was there with some really nice fruit.

2012 Henri Jouan Clos St. Denis

Clos St. Denis Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

Spectacular. Has all the class and elegance of Jouan with the power, structure, and fruit of the 2012 vintage. Great young, but will be even better with 12+ years on it.

Distinct BBQ sauce taste to this...such a masculine, meaty, earthy wine. Delish.

Sweet strawberry fruits. Minerality wasn't as firm/tense as I personally like. Made it feel a bit sweet.

1994 R. López de Heredia Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Tondonia

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

6/27/2015 - tooch wrote: 94 points

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): An outstanding rioja. Had the textbook nose of nutty, red fruit with earthy/floral undertones. Palate was in great balance with the secondary flavors on display along with great acidity and structure which bodes well for further development.

2011 François Raveneau Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Chardonnay more

6/27/2015 - tooch wrote: 92 points

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): I like where this wine is right now. Big and powerful, it has the weight of Valmur and the wonderful salty/lemony/floral notes of great Chablis. If it doesn't prematurely oxidize, this will be a masterpiece once some of the secondary notes develop.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Thought this was great. Had a really nice profile of fresh berries, soft red floral notes, and some earthy undertones. That's what we're looking for in pinot, right? Seemed to check off the major boxes for me quite nicely.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): A very regal wine that might a bit past prime. Had some really nice white floral, tangerine, and peach notes. Acidity was a bit soft, though...gave it the feeling that it wasn't entirely fresh.

2001 Bodegas Riojanas Rioja Viña Albina Gran Reserva

Tempranillo more

6/27/2015 - tooch wrote: 88 points

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Nose of chestnut, roses, cherries, and cranberries. Palate was lean and taught with good charcoal, earth, and dried floral notes. Needs some time to gain complexity.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): A typical Kalin Chard. Clean, pure fruit with nice popcorn aromas. The palate was beautiful. A bit sweet, but nicely balanced and elegant.

NV Jacques Selosse Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Substance

Chardonnay more

6/27/2015 - tooch wrote: 97 points

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Disgorged 12.8.08.

Smelled oxidized, in a Selosse-y type of way. The color was a dark golden...just beautiful. The palate was so acidic and energized with great orchard fruit, Just dizzingly deep and complex with layers of fruit, earth, and floral notes. Hard to find fault.

6/27/2015 - tooch wrote: NR

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): A deeper, richer pinot with some oak. The palate was smooth and the tannins really seemed to come through for me. Some earthy notes on the finish - my recommendation would be to hold and/or decant for quite a while.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Beautiful color and aromas of rose petals, soot, & cranberries. Palate was very tart, but with air it opened up a bit. I'd like to think it will just take some time to flesh out a bit.

HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Smooth and silky. Has that honey/floral/melon note that you'd expect on an Hermitage blanc, but with age this was gorgeous. Incredibly balanced and elegant. What a wine!

I think it's worth giving this wine a touch of air. The first sips were very lean and mean. Delicious...but LEAN. With some air, the wine seemed to flesh out a bit...flavors built up a bit and had a great watermelon, strawberry/banana tone to it. Very impressive.

Another great bottle drinking in a great spot. Has a very sweet, tropical nose of peaches and nectarines. The palate was sappy and rich but had decent balance and edge to it. Lots of dense peach, touch of vanilla, white florals, and cool minerals.

I'm a huge fan of Trousseau. This is a great Trousseau. Such a wonderful aromas of dried leaves, rose petals, and damp earth. Palate is just as enjoyable as the aromas. Beautiful balance and depth.
