Go to wine for summer 2022 at LGP! Lovely, light - need time to see if it balances out.

LDH dinner. Extraodinary white. Honeysuckle and lychee creamy absolute stunner. Perhaps the least acidic white I have ever tasted. Bravo JL Colombo.

SO lovely with many layers. Starts soft and round and then gets you to sweet rasberries. What a discovery.

Not sure if this is the bottle Steve F shared with us, but this was a BIG round pleasure....

Really nice. Not sure about the price though :(. Prefer lusher Cali cabs with my steaks...

Not as much power as others, but super elegant. Prefer the 2014 side by side.

The 2017 doesn't hold a candle to older vintages. Will have to see what time brings, but this is just too tight...

Silky but just not great. For the price I would have expexted something spectacular. Le Tamarin.

Just amazing. So much going on here. Silky versus lush. Constant changes in flavors from berries to earth. Better without food.

Wow. This is a seriously cool wine. Dark, dark color. Black forest berries. Wine ends firmly. Really loved this.

What an overated/overpriced wine. Just say no!

Way too early. Lots of potential but too tight now. For now none of the Giacosa silkiness I like, but it does have some interesting earthy notes.

I loved this charming Chardonnay with light notes of creamy butter...perfect with fish and cheese! LGP

Dark cherry from beginning to soft end. Such a lovely expression of the American Pinot Noir wine making style. Yummy.

MUST be decanted for a long while. Moments of brilliance come and go. So well made and balanced. To try again.

Everything I don’t like in old Bordeaux.

Lush dark blackberries in a forest with damp smoky wood. Unbelievably yummy.

They should not have made this wine. Feels like a cheap version of this usually bigger, more round wine. Gifted to me.
Red
2005 Château Larcis Ducasse St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Just awful IMO. A sludge that gave me a headache. Brook Club.

Terrible acidity. Not what one expects from a RR Chard.

For full disclosure, this wine was served very chilled, but I thought it was a nice fullbodied Chard. Brook Club.

Lovely soft round ...more detailed review to follow ! Paired with cheese tasting was not best for this wine...

Easy drinking NSJ. Judging by the number of bottles consumed, this well balanced light NSJ pleased everyone both pre-dinner and accompanying a stewed lamb. Megeve.

Crisp and dry with lots of citrus at the end. Served chilled this is lovely; as it settles to room temperature the tight finish overwhelms. Megeve.

Very nice. Round. Not especially complex, but a crowd pleaser with enough going on to make it enjoyable with or without food. Megève.
