Introduction

After a break from wine events thought about time to get the band back together. Reds are hard on a hot night but wines showed well overall with some chilling.

Flight 1 (7 notes)

White - Sparkling
2006 Jacquart Champagne Brut Millésimé France, Champagne

Very nice with apple, shells, floral and subtle spices. Good acidity and drinking well.
Red
2010 Faiveley Beaune 1er Cru Clos de l'Ecu France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Beaune 1er Cru

A bit better than the last bottle. I would not hold these extremely long. Underbrush, subtle fruits, spice and floral notes. Medium finish and went really well with the salmon spread.

Drink pretty well and a long life ahead. Decanted for 2 hours. Concentrated with licorice, funk, floral notes and damp earth. Longer finish and quite balanced. Should age these another 5 years if you only have a few left otherwise sample and see the evolution of the wine.
Red
2009 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Georges de Latour Private Reserve USA, California, Napa Valley

Impressive wine and should age for another decade. Concentrated with dark fruits, oak, spices and a nice mineral streak. Medium to long finish. Balanced. Decanted 2 plus hours.

Drinking well after a two hour decant. Perfume, floral, spices and red currants. Very smooth wine and balanced. Long finish. Should drink over the next 15 years. For sure needs a solid decant prior to consuming.
