  • 1971 Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon

    For me this was true Cabernet Sauvignon: minerals, graphite, leather, black and green olives with perfectly aged fruit. Mushrooms, earth with a hint of dried strawbery. The palate was balanced and fully integrated and really showing no signs of fading. The acid was present, but perhaps a bit soft. This wine was enjoyed over 2 hours and never seemed to slow down. If not for the palate, I don't know if I would peg this as California Cabernet. Probably one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon I've ever had. Would love to try again.

  • 1998 Gaja Barbaresco

    A great wine. Poped and poured. Initial nose had a touch of oak, but was well integrated. With time and air the wine turned into an Italian meat shop: smoked salumi, procuitto and misc cured goods. This aroma continued to evolve and change (in a good way) over the next hour. The wine had great structure with Med+ tannin and good acidity. I would like to try this wine again.

  • 1995 Remoissenet Père et Fils Montrachet Le Montrachet

    I can't really begin to describe this wine because I've never had something like this before. Pale staw colow. Initial nose of candied bergamot (that wasn't candied if that makes sense), lemon and fresh marzapan. With time and air, there also were notes of fresh mushroom and earth that blended perfectly. The palate was balanced and crisp with incredible complexity. Delicious. I see why people suggest drinking a premier cru before grand cru - the difference is off the charts. I don't know if I've had a still wine this intense, yet balanced. Wow.
