  • Not ready. Cleary showing hints of incredibly concentrated dark cherry/boysenberry in center palate, a wonderful occasional waft of black cherry, smoke, wet earth and fruit acid on the nose. After a decant for an hour then a short second decant, the wine emerged in parts but still evolving slowly from sleep. Despite the 2015 start date predicted by the reviewers, I would hold for 3-5 more years.

  • 2005 Burgundy (La Trompette, London): Darker again. Dark fruited but with a freshness. Dense, dark and quite dry on the finish. The first bruiser of the night. Very dense on the nose. **(**)

  • Fat, plump, and forward tannic monster of a wine, this took an hour to come around to a point where we could say, "yeah, this need a lot more time." I'd give it another 5-10 and expect it to be always a plump wine, not a thing of grace or cut, but it could offer a lot of game/coffee/spice scented pleasure in its later years. Just not very pleasurable right now.

  • Radically different than the (very advanced) 2005, this wine is still very young and perhaps only now beginning to enter a drinking window. Concentrated red fruit, good overall balance; but prominent and slightly chunky tannins on the finish detract a bit. Better in 2-5 years.

  • Needed a ton of time to open, this wine is still way young. Responded well to "hyper decanting" the modernist way, responded more slowly to an actual decanter (duh).

    Started off with some barnyard and very closed down. Once opened, barnyard notes tended to blow off and a floral, spice bouquet developed. Delicate fruit flavors, finish is a bit rough. Try again in 5 years.
