  • Drank with duck a l'orange that I made, and tried after going deep with the '12 Melville Estate, Santa Rita Hills. At first, this wine had a very unpleasant taste and nose that I described as soap and my wife described as band aids. The Melville was fruit forward of course and very serviceable, and I was really quite disappointed in the Burgundy. As the Burgundy opened up however, the unpleasant nose went away and the wine's true character was revealed. Supple tannins, strawberry, tart cherry, and spices. Showed even better the next day. Will wait another six years before I try my next bottle . . .

  • nose - similar to the Prieure though more closed
    mouth - tight knit, juicy berry, and I can see the elegance, though not giving up much at the moment. Solid structural tannins.
    --
    After 24hrs getting a lovely taut raspberry. Retry in 5 years though the Burghound drinking window of 2023 may be more appropriate.

  • Domaine de la Vougeraie tasting (Watson's, Hong Kong): This is from 1.5 HA at the top of the clos + a little bit (.1 HA) from the clay at the bottom. It spends 18 months in 70% new oak - 6,226 bottles produced this year.
    A deeper ruby than the rest. Very good nose with intense spice, cherry and other red fruits. Medium acidity and tannin - not much oak evident.
