2010 La Pèira en Damaisèla Les Terrasses du Larzac Las Flors de La Pèira Red Rhone Blend

The 2010 Las Flors de la Peira did not impress me as much as last time. It worked fairly well with food but I struggled to finish my glass after dinner. There was just a bit too much jam, tobacco and vanilla to maintain balance. Too bad, since the quality of the fruit is really good. A little more restraint and this would have been great. I do find tonights showing a bit strange considering my last bottle (in 2013) felt really well balanced but I could detect nothing wrong with the wine. Perhaps it was still off in some way or perhaps my palate has shifted further towards lighter wines.

    Have had excactly the same experience as you.
    Had it in autumn 2014 and loved it. Tonight it was as you wrote. Maybe in a odd place right now. Will save the last one and my 2011 a few years. Cheers:-)

2010 Fiorenzo Nada Barbaresco Manzola Nebbiolo

First slightly muted, opens up with some time in the glass. High-pitch notes of red berries, a lot of minerality, some flowers, some sweet spices. It's still very primary right now but very promising. On the palate there are notes of red fruit again, some tobacco, a lot of minerality and some spices. It's medium-bodied but dense, with medium+ tannin and medium+ acidity providing structure and freshness. Good length. When popped and poured it tasted a little light, but it put on significant weight and density with some air. So from that perspective I think it would make sense to wait 3-5 more years until it put on some more weight and additional complexity. It's already very pretty right now though.... so pace yourself. (93+)

2010 Fiorenzo Nada Barbaresco Nebbiolo

This is a wonderful offering from the truly great Nada Fiorenzo.
It is very young, but already very drinkable. Lots of air opens it perfectly. Two hours of decanting and drunk over several hours it just keeps opening with voluptuous dark fruit and herbal balsamic notes.
Firm,cool, clean, deep dark fruit and a weightlessness as the usual NF signature.
If the house is unfamiliar - this is the place to start.

    You can easily drink the 2010 now but it will gain from proper cellaring. Hope it helps you:-)
    Cheers

Even a month later the memory remains though not in a good way. I love this producer but this wine was a tannic rock. Hopefully in 5 years it will open up but dear sweet jeebus it was unforgiving. Seriously hard, tannic, fruit gone somewhere north for the winter. Reading other tasting notes it's like we were all drinking different wines.
