great time to drink it. I felt a lack of intensity and energy, but it was really good.

Young. Juicy. It's not complex (don't expect that), but it's pure without major interventions as opposed to those overloaded and superextracted Syrahs, with high alcohol, and oak excess.

Fantastic Italian wines. Absolutely food-friendly. We started with a powerful and young 2007 Paolo Bea Montefalco Sagrantino Pagliaro. Deserves a few more years in the cellar Then a mesmerizing 2008 Bruno Giacosa Barbaresco. WOTN. Third time I drink this wine. Again spectacular. Finally, one of my favorite producers. 2010 Cavallotto Barolo Bricco Boschis. Stunning vintage, but this one right now, is beautiful monolith. Forget it in the cellar for the next 10 years at least. I've drunk this wine twice: 2015 and 2017. More effusive both times

I really like the Barbarescos at Cantina del Pino. This 2016 Ovello has the usual elegance and structure to age. However, that expressiveness of the fruit is lacking. I believe it's because it's young, but I was afraid the wine was going into the tunnel. Anyway, I'll hide the other bottles to drink it in a few years. No rush

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is not a favorite (except for a very few producers). Let's say that with this one we start talking again. Good acidity, balance and food-friendly (good news). It's not friendship yet, but it's eased the animosity. This wine has not reached its peak. I believe it has at least 10 years ahead.

Darker color than usual. Roses and many thorns (tannins). The food (penne with Sausage sauce) was perfect. It softened the tannins and was wonderful. great wine

After 9 years it retains the intensity of tropical fruits, particularly pineapple, and the acidity of youth. Versatile. It seems to me to have another 5 to 10 years ahead.

Starting a short vacation with this singular 2001 Guy Bocard Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru. Beautiful golden color. It took 45 minutes opened to find its balance. It was wonderful and seems to me that the winemaking style, by not prioritizing exuberant fruit in the first years, conferred an impressive aging capacity. I may be making an audacious comment, but at the moment, it looks more like a Jura Savagnin than a Meursault

Well done with good balance, but at the current stage, very linear with little depth. I drank this wine in 2014, 2018 and 2019 and it was better than now. Maybe a few more years in the bottle will be fine

Interesting day, very interesting day. Opening with a fresh, uncomplicated and great Olivier Horiot Champagne Les Riceys. So, by far, the best producer of Beaujolais: Yvon Metras. This 2012 Fleurie Magnum delivered what is expected of it: freshness, balance, wonderful mix of fruits. Then it started to get serious. A bold and mineral with good acidity 2009 Sine Qua Non Syrah The Thrill of and the king of the night, a simply astonishing 2008 Chateau Mouton Rothschild. When I thought the game was over, it was the turn of a perfectly maintained and delicious ex-cellar 1998 Mersault-Charmes 1er Domaine Rougeot. Finally, one of my favorite wine styles: sweet german wines. We drank a refined 2010 St Urbans-Hof Goldtropfchen Piesport Auslese
