Faiveley vs. Jadot: 1993 vs.1996 (Hong Kong Country Club): Pre-dinner blind tasting.....all wines had been decanted for several hours. Dusky but transparent ruby with no orange rim....probably a 1996. Nose is completely shut.....just the merest hints of strawberry perfumed water. Palate is initially tart but quickly rounds out, approachable and easy, good fruit. Resonant and reverberant but all a bit simple and not a ine to keep much longer..... I pinned it for a Chambolle Musigny. My #10 of 11; Group #1.
Another Saturday at Knightsbridge - mostly blind (Northbrook, IL): Tasted double blind. Open approximately 20 minutes. Black and red cherry aromas with modest spice. Flavors are somewhat hidden and obscured today behind very prominent acidity. I think this might evolve into something more interesting in another 5-10 years but it needs better balance.

(Romanee St. Vivant Jadot) A nice yet very shy nose characterized the following wine, which had some rose, citrus, polished t .n a, minerals and ice palace to its nose. The palate was full of stems, iron and rose with nice length.
