Westchester Wine School - Premium Wine Tasting (Bar Lees, Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS tasting. Dark, plummy in color. Lovely nose of chocolate, sweet plums & coffee that grew ever more intense in the glass. Lots of plums & other dark fruit here, still quite tannic, but soft and chalky. Very round, sexy wine on the fairly opulent side. Also a bit hot, but all elements nicely integrated making for a deliciously complex, interesting pour. Very enjoyable and still a long way to go.
Tasted four times - last time on 1st April 2011. Consistent notes. Black red. Fabulous intensity on the nose of black cherries, blueberries and blackberries. Great intensity and concentration of sweet, perfectly ripe berries, and impressive fatness and length. This wine is real treat for wine-lovers and will give them a pure enjoyment for a long, long time. Exceptional effort from Jean-Luc Thunevin. All the four times I've tasted this wine, it was breathtaking and a fantastic tribute to the vintage!
WGS: 2005 Bordeaux; 4/17/2010-4/18/2010 (Hilton Hotel Singapore): Coffee, sweet oak. The vintage shows on the fruits which are ripe and very tannic and chalky. As much as this seems to give considerable pleasure even right now despite the noticeable tannins, this wine seems to lack something which prevents me from wanting to have it become something more than it is now. Maybe more heart and soul would give this wine more potential. That said, stil good drinking.
