  • 2010 Château Teyssier St. Émilion Grand Cru

    Consumed over two nights in Riedel Vinum glass. Day 1, spicy black fruits and some bell pepper; quite tannic and without much structure. Day 2, slightly better as the tannin had dissipated/integrated with some oxidation. Wine was still fresh, however. Hold for a couple of years and see how this evolves.

  • 2001 Château Fleur Cardinale

    Purchased a case from Wine Connection about 3 years ago for $20/bottle. Two bottles tasted in 2011 and early 2012 were somewhat disappointing with a flat affect, relatively thin fruit and overly-aggressive oak treatment that made drinking the wine a little bit like licking the inside of a charred barrel. At roughly 10 years old, I didn't think the wine could still be in a dumb phase, and simply assumed that the wine was on a downward trajectory. So I am now really surprised by the transformation of this wine over the past 18 months. Popped and poured a bottle and the tannins and oak have noticeably receded and the cool, slightly tart red fruit, which is somewhat typical for the 01 vintage, is resurgent. This is now a classic right bank wine drinking beautifully. I don't believe this will improve considerably, but am ecstatic that the wine seems to have come alive in 2013.

  • 2009 Moulin de la Lagune

    Value wines category - $20. Fifth bottle of a case with consistent notes. Nearly opaque ruby red with a lighter meniscus. Nose of barnyard and a little chocolate milk. On the palette, all primary red fruit and fairly heavy oak treatment. Certainly not a little brother to the 09 La Lagune, this is more of a country second cousin. OK but nothing special and there are better wines at this price point such as Chantegrive, Villars, Cap de Faugeres, etc.
