Spot MNSC (Chez Juliano): sweet, rich and plummy. pomerol-like. quite a few guessed Petrus!

    7/9/15, 3:51 PM - what a lovely gesture. unless your bottle is from pristine provenance, I don't think you need an hour in decanter. Just a quick double decant should be sufficient. Enjoy!

absolutely gorgeous. silky and complex. all the more sweeter when it was so outrageously mispriced at £60!

Dinner with Eric, Jon, Ludo and wives (富瑤酒家): deep yellow and half oxidised. can be enjoyed only from an academic viewpoint. well past its drinking window.
  • Lord Rayas commented:

    4/16/13, 3:07 AM - No I did not. I don't think it's a sourcing issue. Just the nature of the wine. If you read Parker's notes he does mention this evolvement. Some people might like it, but I personally prefer drinking them young. I've had quite a few 06 and 07 which are drinking well.

  • Lord Rayas commented:

    4/17/13, 12:14 AM - yes - the "second window" is this semi oxidised state. you either love it or hate it and I guess I belong to the latter.

Alex/Vivien dinner with Marc/SY and Carl (L'Altro): classic palmer with notes of cassis, coffee and tobacco. structured and balanced, but nothing too exciting here.
  • Lord Rayas commented:

    1/29/13, 4:05 AM - haha. thanks for pointing out my typo. I meant Palmer of course.
