Friday, August 21, 2009 - Party at Leo's for the Gelbs. Saxum, Pegau, Jaboulet "La Chapelle," Usseglio, Marcassin and more. (Leo's.): What's going on here? This wine has always shown well. It's always been lighter than its brethren from '98, '00, '01, '03, '04, '05 and '06, but I've never had a problem with this wine. While it shows a touch more fruit than the '95, this too is dried out, but more importantly, is completely overwhelmed by Brett. Now, I enjoy a healthy amount of Brett, but this is like a bully version of Farmer Brown grabbing you by the scruff of your neck and plunging your head fully into the collected dung heap of all the animals on his farm. Really. It was that bad and made the wine undrinkable. Having never had a bad bottle of this before, I can only assume that something bacterial happened with this bottle. NR.
