Flight 1 (1 note)

1982 Château Laville Haut-Brion Blanc France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan
88 points
deep yellow, gasoline, past prime. drinks more like sherry.

Flight 2 (3 notes)

1990 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape
94 points
loaded with black fruits, Asian spice, roasted herbs and a touch of soy sauce. unmistakable grenache. everyone thought it was Henri Bonneau - that's the biggest compliment any winemaker can hope for!
1990 Domaine Ponsot Griotte-Chambertin France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru
96 points
expressive, opulent, blue/black fruits, earthy yet elegant. lovely.
1990 Domaine A.-F. Gros Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru
90 points
feminine and floral. lean and grippy towards the end.

Flight 3 (3 notes)

1991 Rene Rostaing Côte-Rôtie La Landonne France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Côte-Rôtie
95 points
stunning nose when first poured into glass with soaring notes of graphite, truffle and sweet earth. rich and bordeaux-like. became more subdued with time but still a wonderful drink.
1991 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Ermitage Cuvée Cathelin France, Rhône, Northern Rhône, Hermitage
99 points
sensational. intoxicating nose of spice, flowers, jammy cherries, smoke and dried herbs. totally burgundian - was convinced it was a DRC at one stage! bravo!
1991 Emmanuel Rouget Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Cros Parantoux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru
94 points
light colour. floral nose with hint of mint. a little bitter towards the end.
