    6/30/21, 6:25 AM - Thanks for your broad analysis @Swaggering Beaunie. Three sommelier and five different people with over 25,000 tested wines on their conscience. We all did not think it was a defective wine. Very interesting with very divided views and good discussion about it, since it is very praised. I wish you all the best

  • Patrik H commented:

    10/31/17, 12:23 PM - In my eyes is 86p not a low score. It is a very good wine indeed. It lacks complexity and another dimension to have a higher rating from me.

I had it blind and did not pick it as a champagne. I am puzzeled....
I wonder if this is a cuvée later or earlier than the ones I've tried in the past?

    8/1/16, 2:50 PM - Kanske, jag skulle garanterat tagit det som en fransos om det hade varit blint och inte mer än en timme i luft. Efter ca en timme kom det "nya världen toner" som inte alltid är de bästa.

    2/13/16, 1:10 PM - Grinner thanks for your feedback and I understand your thoughts. But actually I revisit my notes and I have to stick with them but I also noticed that I had missed one note. Glue!(Now edited) My first impression and thought was Piemonte due to the acetone and glue but the color of the wine told me another story. I can agree at some point that the acetone was not as intensive after a while. But we had the wine 3-4 hrs of decanting and the wine was in good condition. Cheers from a cold Sweden.

On the nose: honeysuckle, marzipan, elders, a flower field at midsummer.
On the palate: Vanilla, some citrus, nice elegant balanced honey based herb mixture
Medium + finish
  • Patrik H commented:

    11/24/15, 8:23 AM - I would say it would last for at least another 10 years stored in good condition. But I will revisit it in a year or two to make another assessment.
    Good concentrated acidity very well balanced and not a very "fruity" wine.

Light golden yellow
On the nose: Very significant red apple tones, yeast, vanilla, coffee and sherry.

2010 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay Napa Valley

On the nose Pineapple, papaya, honey
On the palate, Chalk, mineral, a obvious dryness.

Once again a more rubust Chardonnay wine that I would say a typical american wine these days. Beefy without being vulgar, but still missing the fine tuned strings to play on.

Medium+ finish
  • Patrik H commented:

    5/20/14, 12:09 PM - @oldwines thanks for the comments. I will leave them alone and revisit later, much later then. Worth waiting for? Lets wait and see.

On the nose, Gun powder, honey, rubber, toast and a fresh summer wind over a summer meadow that hits you straight in the nose.
On the palate, A certain smokiness, almonds, sweet rubber, hint of mineral and yellow apples. The acidity is very present and at this time i would let the bottles rest for a couple of years.
Long finish

Had it blind. So Parker gave this wine 99p...

On the nose. Black currant! Black currant! Black currant! Fudge and some pepper, white pepper.
On the palate. Guess what! Black currant, candy, some alcohol with a good lenght. A little to much for my taste will perhaps be nice and more balanced in the future.
  • Patrik H commented:

    12/8/12, 7:40 AM - Did post on the notification board... Takes some time to find everything in the new Cellartracker. But the staff took care of the decant. Usually they do decant the wines between 2 and 4. We did arrive at 6.30.
