White - Sparkling
N.V. Pierre Paillard Champagne Grand Cru Extra Brut Les Parcelles France, Champagne, Champagne Grand Cru
88 points
Slightly oxidized, shy and very dry.
White - Sparkling
2006 Diebolt-Vallois Champagne Grand Cru Fleur de Passion Brut France, Champagne, Champagne Grand Cru
93 points
I adored this champagne. Fresh bread dough, almond extract, oxidation, very complex.
2013 Peter Dipoli Sauvignon Voglar Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Alto Adige, Alto Adige - Südtirol
For Sauvignon blanc, not bad. Only slightly slightly grassy. Nice florals, a touch oxidized. With time, the nose becomes curious with minor complexity. Unscored because I'm not a fan of sauvignon blanc.

2004 Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja) Brunello di Montalcino Rennina Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino
93 points
Bellisimo's bottle. Red-fruited and quite savory. The tannins are soft, and there is spice, herbs, underbrush and leather.
2000 Antinori Tignanello Toscana IGT Italy, Tuscany, Toscana IGT
93 points
Pop and pour, this kind of drank like a Bordeaux, although there was an element of smoke to it and it was dark in flavor. Plenty of earth, tobacco and leather. I wish I had more.
White - Sparkling
2006 Pol Roger Champagne Vintage Brut France, Champagne
88 points
I have found Pol Roger to be spotty. Even among bottles that I purchased, some are amazing while others are uneventful. This one was more on the uneventful side. As ROCKNROLLER said, it is crisp and clean. There just isn't much there. I hope to have better experiences with this wine in the future.

2012 Marc Hébrart Champagne Premier Cru Special Club France, Champagne, Champagne Premier Cru
89 points
From a magnum, qualitatively this performed at the same level as their NV's. Too young?
White - Sweet/Dessert
2005 Château Doisy-Daëne France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes
91 points
To me, this wine is gaining weight and becoming more "typical" for Sauternes. I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing. This is still relatively fresh and not overly sweet. I'm wondering if I should hold my remaining 750's for 5 years or so?
Rosé - Sparkling
N.V. Maso Martis Trento Brut Rosé Italy, Trentino-Alto Adige, Trentino, Trento
Oxidized, totally ok but not nothing special. This is a starter wine.
2010 Vecchie Terre di Montefili Chianti Classico Riserva Italy, Tuscany, Chianti, Chianti Classico DOCG
90 points
Gravel, dirt, peppery and red-fruited with cherries dominating. This would make a nice pizza wine.
