1983 Château Palmer Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend

Dinner at Canlis with Wilfred (Seattle, WA, USA): Booyah! I am a a Bordeaux guy after all. It seems like we were getting twitchier with each bottle, and there was a slightly edgy note on this that hinted at TCA but then quickly became a slightly minty edge. This is just such a bottle of Bordeaux. Perhaps one could call it clumsy after all of the more precise Burg, but it has such glorious secondaries starting to emerge, meaty, smoky, sultry, tobacco, red fruit moving to soy and shiitake. I could have pondered this one for hours. So deeply satisfying.

1982 Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Syrah

Glorious Rhône lunch at 28-50 (London): From magnum. Wow, black, stern, lots of iron, yet richly fruited on an amazingly silky and approachable palate. Killer wine delivering so much pleasure. It is hard for me to imagine Hermitage much more satisfying than this. Of all the wines at the tasting, I thought this was at the best spot to drink.
