The three of us (at least) should get together to open up some Bordeaux sometime. Have enjoyed your notes for years and it's funny how closely we rate Left Bank wines.

I felt like my tasting notes were missing something and realized scores are probably the best way to encapsulate a wine and universally understood. Scores are more precise and offers more objectivity than words like “Very good” or “Excellent”.

I wish to treasure unlimited amounts of Lafite in my cellar...reality is completely different Excepting for Carruades, my only two bottles are of this 2001 vintage (bought for 200€, those were the times), that's why I hope, sorry about it, your bottle was defective in any sense :-) My last Lafite was drunk on December 2005 so I'm blind of it since then...just reading TN compulsively, here at CT Cheers and wish you a dry Merry Xmas time!

    3/29/2013 1:43:00 PM - Thanks! I actually create them for myself, which I guess is why I go to some trouble to think about how to remind myself of what the wine was like. Otherwise by the next time I go to pull a bottle I end up picking unwisely...

    12/24/2012 12:26:00 PM - I should have rated the 1989 Beaucastel Châteauneuf Hommage à Jacques Perrin a 100 when I posted it last August. I'm sure it's just as good now and for a few years down the road; all depending on storage. I keep mine at 56 degrees. You should try one on your next special occasion! My philosophy: "drink the good wine now"! Ciao.

    12/24/2012 11:21:00 AM - I appreciated your comprehensive notes on both the 1985 Ridge Montebello and the 1990 Beaucastel; two wines I've immensely enjoyed over the years. Still have some of the ‘90 Beaucastel. I had a half case of the '85 Montebello. I’ve previously rated it 100 in Aug 1993, 99 in Oct 2004, 97 in April 2007 and 96 in 2009. Those ratings were before joining CT. I guess, judging from your notes, I consumed them at the right time! By the way, it’s rare that I use the 100 rating. My favorite wine of all time has been the 1989 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf Hommage à Jacques Perrin, which I rated 99 on CT – should have been 100. Anyway, you refreshed my recollection of prior memorable wine experiences. Merry Holidays! Chainthroer
