2016 Domaine Louis Moreau Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons France, Burgundy, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru
92 points
Just delicious, displaying the tension between bright acidity and ripe fruit which is so typical for 2016 in (broadly speaking) Northwestern Europe, perfect weight and intensity, touch of salted butter, playful and long.

2016 Weingut Lehnert-Veit Piesporter Falkenberg Spätburgunder trocken Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer

The first red Moselle for many of the participiants tonight and it was widely appreciated. It is easy to see why, with its freshness and fruit, its polished manner and well integrated oak.

This wine really divided opinion tonight. Some enjoyed it, some found it so primary that they asked whether it could actually be called wine, and others found it actively unpleasant. But it certainly stimulated discussion!
Red
2012 Forey Père et Fils Morey St. Denis France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis
90 points
As is Morey’s wont, this displays a certain sauvage, but surprisingly it is the smoothest and the most refined of the Forey 2012 trio tonight.
Red
2012 Forey Père et Fils Nuits St. Georges France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges
88 points
Rather unsettled nose (some of the participants suspected TCA), good earth and iron Nuits character on the palate, but overall not a convincing showing. The Forey 2012’s seem to be behaving like spotty adolescents tonight.

2012 Forey Père et Fils Vosne-Romanée France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée
89 points
Two bottles opened. The first displayed an unidentifiable unevenness, but the second, although clean, is also uncommunicative and there is little or no Vosne character. It may need more time? Judgment suspended, provisional (conservative) score.

2002 Jean-Jacques Confuron Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru
92 points
Finesse, elegance, silk, classic style, fresh, resolved tannins, excellent mature Chambolle.
Red
2004 Serafin Père et Fils Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru
91 points
Hardly any evolution in the colour, concentrated, bursting with vitality, firm tannins but with sufficient fruit for balance, hint of nutty evolution, good flavours and length. Remarkable power for Chambolle and for 2004, but more about energy than about finesse. Will last, but I doubt that it will evolve much. Drink now - 2024?

2011 Patrice Rion Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru
92 points
Attractive, ripe fruit, slightly sweet oak, charming but easy and forward for this august Premier Cru. Stylish and polished, but what is the potential? Probably best to drink soon.
Red
2007 Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos de la Maréchale France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
92 points
Marries the delicate style of Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier to the earth and iron character of Nuits, stylish, elegant, refined and silky but with a firm core, mature now but retains its fruit. Drink now - 2022.

2007 Sylvie Esmonin (Michel et Fille) Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
94 points
Two bottles opened, both perfect. Marvellous, complete, rounded and structured, seamless, silky and polished, power and elegance, charm and poise, perfectly integrated oak, effortless balance and harmony. Unanimous wine of the night.

2007 Joseph Drouhin Grands-Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru
89 points
Two bottles opened. An acceptable burgundy, but a big disapppointment after the previous two excellent bottles. The first bottle is more vegetal than the second, but both lack expression on the nose, and weight of fruit on the palate. Impeccable provenance, so these issues must be intrinsic to the wine rather than attributable to these two individual bottles.

1995 Antonio Bernardino Paulo da Silva Colares Chitas Reserva Velho Portugal, Lisboa, Colares
flawed
Two bottles opened and double decanted, both identical and in my opinion both off. The nose seems volatile initially, but closer inspection reveals traces of carbon dioxide in the wine, probably owing to continued malolactic in bottle.
Red
1990 Mas de Daumas Gassac France, Languedoc Roussillon, Languedoc, Vin de Pays de l'Hérault
93 points
From a pristine magnum. Like a beautifully mature claret, with a dash of Languedoc ripeness and warmth. Has style, class and a remarkable vitality.

1980 Weingut Dr. Motzel Scheurebe Appenheimer Hundertgulden Spätlese Eiswein Germany, Rheinhessen
90 points
Two bottles opened. The first seemed a bit old and tired immediately after opening, but has recharged its batteries on the second day. The apple and citrus flavours are fresh, carried by lovely Eiswein acidity, but the bitters are considerable and the residual sugar has been consumed almost entirely. The second bottle had a musty nose, but a delicately sweet palate, fresh and harmonious, peach and spiced apple, gentle bitters, retains its line and length.
