    January 22, 2017 - Austere and reserved. Pencil shavings, tar, leather, black cherry fruit. Medium bodied with firm tannins on the finish. This hasn't budged much over the past 2 years since last tasted.

    January 19, 2017 - VinoLaprisco Tasting (Restaurant De Karpendonkse Hoeve *, Eindhoven, Netherlands): Paired with the Cornas Champelrose 2005 from Domaine Courbis. This a classical and structured wine, very Cornas, very Clape, very 2005, but it does not scale the heights which the 2009 and (in particular) the 2010 attain. Pure and powerful, with restrained but beautifully nuanced fruit, concentrated but not at all big or brutish, vibrant acidity and quite dusty tannins, mineral and with a touch of eucalyptus, very good length. This is the Rhône equivalent of Léoville-Barton in a vintage like 1988 or 1996. Will age well of course (even on the third day it remains completely freshn tight and tannic), but I am not exactly sure where this is going. The quality is undeniable, its charms are limited.

    January 12, 2017 - An introduction to Domaine Laurent Boussey (Chez Kimelman): A late decision to open this so the decant revealed that the sediment was largely integrated. Deep purple - almost black. Despite palate and general fatigue, this wine's gorgeous fruit and remarkable concentration were undeniable. Whoa! I will let mine sleep as long as I can.

    September 11, 2016 - Can wine get better than this?

    Double decanted last night to a ton of sediment, and then the bouquet was leaping and catapulting out of the glass. A gorgeous, burnished black plum color, the texture was substantial yet supple in the mouth. This Cornas feels both opulent and austere, rich and savory, racy and plump, all at the same time, amplified in technicolor. Each sip seemed to satisfy completely, while at the same time the wine was enlivening the palate, begging for another sip.

    This is irresistible now but should cruise comfortably in the cellar. Without a doubt amongst the greatest wines I've ever tasted.

    September 10, 2016 - Northern Rhone Bash at Ivan and Ronnie's house: big bright cherry and blackberry. bold wine, with lots of power and structure. tar and earth in the mid. oak is there still - needs more time. smoky and peppery on the finish. very good indeed.
