  • 2004 Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale

    Talk about expectations. First, there's the green meanie reputation of 2004 burgundy reds. I've had some very nasty, green "04s so I'm nervous. On the other hand, Mugnier has a reputation of excellence even in difficult vintages.

    This was simply a great red burg. Translucent light red in the glass and on the nose soaring fruit, spice and some earth notes - no bell pepper. The palate amps things up a bit further. It's hard to imagine a wine this light in colour with such density. Very pure too. A long finish is marked with some biting acidity. Basically, as nice as this was, it needs another 5 years. Thankfully, no green meanies to worry about if this bottle is the prototype.

  • 1985 Château Lynch-Bages

    From magnum purchased at auction (so, unknown provenance). The cork was soaked about 60% through. Thankfully, the trustworthy Durand corkscrew pulled the cork perfectly. The fill on the magnum was very high which might explain the cork condition.

    Still deep red with just a touch of orange on the edge. The nose screamed mature bordeaux with fruit, leather, pencil all playing for attention.

    While this was definitely mature with a velvety, tongue coating texture, it was still quite fresh. Some finishing spice and pleasant acidity kept the wine interesting from sip to sip. Very long. Very excellent.

    A magnum in this shape should continue to excite for another 10+ years, I'd imagine.

  • 2014 Five Rows Riesling Lowrey Vineyards

    Fantastic Niagara Riesling. A touch of residual sugar but excellent balance of fruit and acid. Yum. Not much petrol for those that look for that in their Riesling.
