    April 8, 2017 - Dinner party at home - April 8, 2017

    The meal:
    Antipasto
    Osso Buco with polenta and broccoli rabe
    Select Vermont cheeses
    Pears poached in cassis accompanied with red wine sorbet

    The wines:
    N/V Nathalie Falmet Champagne Cuvee Le Val Cornet (deg. May 2014) - 91
    2007 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre - 94
    2006 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello - 94
    2006 Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie Brunello di Montalcino - 92
    2012 Booker Vineyard Grenache The Ripper - 94
    2012 Torrin Akasha (Syrah) - 95

    The Falmet was nicely balanced and very pleasurable to drink with antipasto dish. Tight bubbles, notes of citrus and toast. Drinking as good or better than previous bottles.

    The 2007 Clos de la Barre was a perfect accompaniment to antipasto and also balanced well against the reds later in the evening. Lots of buttery notes and a smooth long finish. Continues to astound me.

    The 2006 Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello is just beginning to emerge as a young maturing Barolo. The tannins are subsiding quite a bit and had a great balance of fruit, soil, fragrance and polish. It has structure to last for many years, and it would be good to wait another 5 - 10 years to try it again.

    The 2006 Le Ragnaie was an excellent Brunello but suffered a bit in comparison to the Colonnello. Its tannins were more muted but it lacked a certain complexity that I was hoping for. It is still an excellent wine.

    The 2012 Booker Grenache and 2012 Torrin Akasha (Syrah) made for interesting counter-points to each other and to the older Italian wines. The Booker exhibits lots of licorice and fruit and big chewy set of tannins that are quite integrated. The Torrin presented a complex palate of dark fruit, earth tones and soil. It had an exceptional finish and had us all talking and marveling over it.

    March 16, 2017 - Nice color. The nose shows rich aromas of white flowers, peach, almond, orange blossom and minerals. This is medium bodied on the palate with excellent concentration and wonderful finesse. The long finish features a strong mineral element.

    March 10, 2017 - La Paulee de NY - Verticals Tasting (Rainbow Room - NYC): Tasted at large walkaround tasting. My favorite of the vertical, this had most of the things I enjoyed about the '09, but more cut. Still a ripe tropical fruit profile, with oak, but a really strong acidic verve here.

    March 10, 2017 - La Paulée de New York: Vertical Tasting (Rainbow Room - New York NY): Tasting, brief note. Easily the most complex wine of the vertical. Leaner fruit with less coming forward, but there is coiled energy here, really coming through on long finish. I'd cellar this longer than the 2008. The upside potential is greater here vs 2008 (but riskier?), while the '08 will clearly be easier to enjoy over the next few years.
