Sunday Brown Bag Tasting: 2003 Bordeaux (Mike & Judi's): Rest in peace Francois. Aromas of cherry, forest floor and red fruit- lovely aromatics. Flavors of cherry, red berries, violets, lavender and spices with a long finish. Silky texture, balanced and fully-integrated. Mature and drinking very well, and while it should hold for a few years at this level, I will drink my last bottle sooner rather than later. Drink now-2017. 92-93 pts.
Echezeaux Dinner (Sepia - Chicago IL): Open, double decanted approximately 90 minutes before serving. started with plenty of red fruit and spice on nose. Big tannins from middle to finish. With more time in glass, this became more rustic and slightly more coarse, certainly less charming.
Red and black cherries blossoming from the glass. Earthy, tea leaves, minerality showing on the palate. Nice acids that went very well with grilled pork chops and broiled broccoli rabe. Terrific wine that is drinking fantastically right now and could last for another couple of years.
