  • 2010 Clos Lapeyre Jurançon La Magendia

    Four day Fridge Decant (Open bottle, drinking one small glass each day)

    Day one: Closed, nothing.

    Day two: Some cool notes of herbs not much though.

    Day Three: Starting to become something.

    Day Four: Herbs, herbs, oregano, salt, sweet, but dry for for a desert wine. Complex, high quality. Let it open up over a few days though or cellar for a decade.

  • 2009 Château de Myrat

    First glass: Good structure but currently tight and racy. Weighs in at 14%, so I'm going to bottle decant this (in the fridge) for the next couple of days.

    Day 2: Still racy the alcohol hasn't integrated as well as I had hoped. The tannin is smoothing out and the structure is still holding strong.
    Right now it needs some food to brace it.

    Day 3: Finally, the alcohol subsided. The structure is beginning to wain. Put cork in.

    Day 4: Holding steady.

  • 2005 L. Mawby Mille

    I enjoyed it. Crisp boarding on sour apple, honey, big. Calm effervescence. Better as a cocktail or an aperitif than and with food. I thought that this high acidity would be great with food, but the abundence of the apple mingled strangely with the creme brulee I made. Tastes like aged Champagne, and feels like it could mature a few more.

    For the price, I was expecting more in the bottle. One has to remember that this is a, relatively, small producer from a cool climate making vintage sparkling wine. There is going to be a lot of cost and probably little, or no, profit on this wine
