Tasted blind. Port-like and liqueur-like nose with raisiny red berry fruit. Optically a slightly milky appearance. However, soft and velvety on the palate, appearing quite a bit younger than on the nose. I can't help but think that this was an off-bottle (hence no score), although the rest of the crew (3 others) didn't think so. Having said that, I haven't been able to befriend this wine when more than 10 years old. Wasn't a big fan of 2004 or 2007 and 1999 was already too dusty, in my view.

Tasted blind (slow ox for 90mins or so, no decant). Immediately screaming aged Brodeaux. Lots of barnyard, forest floor and mushroom notes with a forest berry fruit. Incredibly supple and soft and in an absolutely great drinking spot right now. A noble representative in perfect 1996 vintage garment, beating quite a number of my more recent 1996 left bank experiences (except the majestic Margaux).

Sweet spices, baking spices, red cherry fruit, a bit of milk chocolate and pepper. Good balance with nice acidity and soft tannin. Lightly structured, harmonious and offering great, immediate pleasure. Sweet and juicy palate with some leathery notes as well. Becoming an bit more herbaceous over time. I really like how this combines Napa sexiness with a lighter fruit and less muscular appearance. Can't quite match the 2012 just now, but maybe give it another 3-4 years and I wouldn't be saying this.

Tasted blind from decanter (maybe 60min in the decanter). Dense and intense, immediately revealing that this is a very special bottling. Broadcasts meticulously the terroir with a level of precision I've never experienced form this region before. Graphite minerality and earthy notes, a rather dark cherry fruit initially turning more red over time. Also some pepper, an overlay of fine spices and a whiff of menthol every now and then. On the palate outstanding balance with a supple, velvety texture showing Burgundian elegance. This just effortlessly ejects everybody else in the Bündner Herrschaft from the race.

Decanted for a short while and kept in decanter. Ex-chateau bottle released only recently after a self-conducted quality check, hence in impeccable condition. Starts off with chemical, sulfuric notes, underneath ripe stone fruit popping up as well as some nutty aging notes. A massive, absolutely mind-blowing palate with viscosity, amazingly fresh acidity and density. Fruit here more citric and salty mineral flavours dominant. The nose shakes off the chemical touch over time with more popcorn emerging and a clearer fruit profile. There is nothing here not to love and one of the best white wines I've ever had. There is easily 10-20 years of life left, if not more.

P&P. Lacked expression initially with lower than expected intensity. Flavour profile showing grassy notes, gooseberry fruit but also citrus and lime, in addition rocky and steely mineral notes. Slightly smoky too. On the palate then just a tad oily texture to it, otherwise loads of fresh and crisp acidity, a long finish, fruity and mineral with dazzling floral and perfume notes. Linear and precise, despite a nose showing some restraint, the palate was pretty amazing from the start. But then: Constant improvement over time in the glass, becoming more and more expressive adding hay (rather than grass), much more toast and the fruit transforming entirely into lychee and a bit of passion fruit. If you can't resist, as I couldn't, and need to open a bottle now give it a 30-60min decant. Otherwise probably best to wait 2-3 years.

P&Ped and immediately delivered from the get go. A jammy, confit fruit of dark bramble-berry. Earthy with lots of olive paste and just a little bit meaty. A few dried herbs and lava minerality. Massive concentration and density, surprised the glass didn‘t burst! On the palate, juicy with the necessary freshness to carry the weight. Great balance, soft tannins and a bit lighter fruit add up to a round experience. I’m lucky enough to have tasted the 2011 for the 3rd time in 18 months with unwavering consistency.

Tasted blind. P&Ped, although I joined in at least 1h later and was told the first impression was more muted. Fine baking spices and fine wooden notes. Juicy and incedibly perfumed nose with a cool fruit. This has a mystic touch it. Lots of tobacco too. Complexity is out of this world, the more I think about it, also adding some meaty angles in the end. Good balance but with still elevated acidity on the palate. Fantastic how the perfume notes are transported, but overall not fully delivering on the palate against massive expectations built up with the nose.

Tasted blind. P&Ped, although I joined in at least 1h later and to take this already in advance I was told this got off to a much stronger start. When I bumped into this I found mixed berry fruit, ripe in style but not yet jammy (just about). Very signature 2014 profile with a cooler character. Later actually lots of fresh, blue and a bit darker fruit. Just a tad spicy initially, more like a feature, but becoming more dominant over time, also darker. Sweet tobacco and licqeurice. Transports some nice leathery notes to the palate. Dense, but with soft tannins and good balance. A good, in fact great wine - but coulnd’t quite pull me in all the way. Prefer the 2012 and eager to taste 2016.

Tons of wet earthy, black truffles, some leather and blue berries as the dominant fruit character. Palate maybe a bit thin, but with good acidity and structural tannins. Good amount of fruit here too. Improving by the minute in the glass / decanter revealing a more refined fruit, becoming more red. Second bottle in a short while and again confirming my previous impression: This is in an amazing spot right now.

Not quite as expressive as I remembered from a couple of months ago. Cassis and dark bramble-berry fruit, not in the least over-extracted and coming across almost cool. Were this blind I would have guessed 2014. Toppings of sweet spices and herbs. The palate shows impeccable balance with a juicy feel. Density and concentration here, but nevertheless flows down your throat like warm honey milk. Craftsmanship right from the precision forgery.

Buttery, slightly oily nose. Not overly precise, grassy with restrained citric fruit initially. Light-handed deployment of oak that adds nice smoky and light wooden notes to the bouquet. Very fresh acidity, at the upper end of what I would still consider pleasant, but works great when paired with food (Japanese soba noodles salad, in this case). Having said that, improved considerably after a few hours to an amazing, beguiling nose with fine toast and well integrated fruit. Not quite on the level of the 2013, but not that far off either! Next bottle I will decant for up to 1h.

Bottle performing below previous experiences. Still mineral, but with the fruit quite muted and marginally unpleasant petrol notes. On the palate fresh but without the great crispiness I recall from previous bottles. More fruit here though, mostly citric and less tropical than in the past, but also mineral and smoke flavours. This is still very much enjoyable and easily deserves a score of around 90, but I know how much more this could offer - I‘m hoping this was bottle variation and not a sign that aging potential is more limited than assumed. Otherwise I have way too much stock!

Didn't decant in the restaurant, but would recommend 1-2h to fast-forward to the sweet spot. First impression was of cooler fruit with an abundance of sweet spices, liquorice, smoked vanilla. Great balance on the palate. Sweet and fresh, maybe a bit less expressive and some greenish notes. Second day (took half the bottle home) still just as good, fruit with a more dark cherry profile and more restrained sweetness. Hence a tad less sexy and more mature. Having this for the third time in 6 months with a consistently strong performance.

A strong performance. This has a steely touch to it. Great precision in flavours showing nutty notes such as almond, a bit of hay, bouquet of stone fruit and a bit of spices. Massive sweetness here, but still with sufficient acidity to balance. If you like it sweet, you're in for a treat here.

Heavily aged, impressive stage right now dominated by oxidation notes. This has a liqueur- or port-like touch and feel to it. But there is additional complexity there which includes earthy notes, a bit of leather and over time a whole bag of black coffee. On the palate then still fresh, pretty light and great to drink. I have had a number of deeply aged Riojas (1950ies to 1980ies) over the last 12 months or so and continue to be impressed how consistently well these have aged scoring them 93-95. If you're after outstanding and legendary, probably the wrong place to look. If you're happy with really really good, available AND affordable, this is it.

Tasted blind. Sexy and fresh fruit profile showing mixed berries, over time more blueberries, embedded in a beautifully spicy character. Pairing this with the 2009 the sexiness of both led me to a Beckstoffer Napa vineyard! On the palate more cool in nature (with hindsight surprisingly so given the vintage) with lots of acidity and tannins, but the latter were fine-grained and in good balance accompanying a fruity, blue berry core. This is both sensual and sexy as well as deep and intellectual. Big fan.

Tasted blind. Sweet tobacco and other aging aromas, ripe and intense fruit showing red and blue berries. First impression already incredibly sexy instantly reminding me of a Beckstoffer vineyard in Napa (hence 0 points for me here in the tasting). Great intensity, tension and balance – but with a surprisingly abrupt finish. This was paired against VCC 2015 and in this comparison the 2009 came across somewhat heavy-handed.

Tasted blind from decanter. The nose showed faceted aging notes complemented by a basket of mixed berries (leaning towards darker fruit I would say). Great freshness on the palate, structure fully intact with supple tannins. This easily beat the Pichon Lalande 1996 it was paired against and was once again prove of how incredibly well Napa cabs from the nineties have aged.

Tasted blind from decanter. Lots of aging notes including barnyard, earth, some mushrooms and leather with a rather dark berry fruit. A bit of an acidity overhang. Leather aromas resonate nicely on the on the palate for a good amount of time. This has developed very well and a treat for aged Bordeaux lovers. In my view, however, the muscle has already started to shrink and impact balance. Paired against Opus One 1996 this one came in clearly second. Drink up, would be my advice.

Tasted blind from decanter. O. M. G. This knocks your socks off so hard it leaves burn marks! If I had to decide between endless supply of this or my wife and kids that would be a close call. Tons of sweet spices, baking spices and ripe red berry fruit. Finely grained, feels completely weightless yet with good tension and a good length finish. This sucks you into the glass already from afar. Absolutely amazing and great to drink now, but could even reach absolute perfection with a few more years of bottle age. I need more. MORE!!!

Tasted blind from decanter. Full of signature earthy and forest floor aromas as a backbone. Ripe strawberry fruit and spicy overlays. On the palate with impeccable balance and a long finish. Wait for the the herbal aftertaste! High intensity, complex, supple tannins - easily one of the best Gantenbein Pinots I've ever had and second probably only to the stellar 2013. A much better experience than a year ago. It seems that acidity has settled down and flavour expression has increased.

Tasted blind and the signature Aubert handwriting was immediately visible. Ultra-fine oak, grassy aromas, hay and spices. Incredible finesse and elegance despite a tightly knit and dense texture. Perfectly balanced on the palate with more wood and citric flavours. This has a weightless appearance to it, yet with intensity and punch. The nose is absolutely fabulous. It is always hard to compare from memory, but probably the best Aubert I've had to date, just a whisker ahead of Lauren 2017, CIX 2016 and Larry Hyde & Sons 2016.

Tasted blind. Amber colour, saffron, quince. On the palate just the right amount of crispiness, slightly viscous, apricot. Not at all overbearing. This is so good I guessed Yquem. A fabulous Sauternes and in a great spot right now but with even more potential ahead.

Tasted blind. Defining sweet oak and vanilla notes coupled with ripe red, blue and black berries. A bit of herbs too. Convincingly elegant with a fine grained texture. Perfect harmony on the palate. Delineated, precise with steel structure covered in velvet. Combines Bordeaux excellence with New World sexyness. This is a fantastic cab that can keep up with the best Napa has to offer. In a group of 5, this made it unanimously to Wine of the Night against competition that included Chapoutier Le Méal 1998, Clos Erasmus 2013 and Redigaffi 2015 among the reds.

Double decanted (~1h) and I would recommend do even more (2-4h) as I recommended already in 2018 but didn't follow my own advice. Red berry fruit, a bit of ash minerality and complex floral notes. On the palate tannins with still lots of grip and biting acidity. Ripe fruit and great aromatic breadth with and intriguing mix of sweet spices, although sadly I didn't find the layered structure I experienced at my first encounter. Juicy on the palate but also slightly alcoholic which I put down as a negative. Evolved beautifully in the glass so take your time! I definitely popped this too early again so just keep cellaring. Potential for greatness abounds and checking my previous notes I'm already adding +1 to the score now. To be continued 2021.

Tasted blind and drank from decanter over several hours. First impression in the nose is already firm and tight showing dark chocolate cake, liquorice, dark cherries, herbaceous notes and sweet spices. Incredible density of flavours with a viscous mouthfeel on the palate showing lots of dark and ripe cherries and meaty flavours. Present but very well integrated tannins. Elegant, finely structured and good precision here. Absolutely fantastic first nose which literally squeezed a tear out of my eye (left side). But revisiting again and again over time I felt this comes across just a bit too clunky to be close to perfection.

Tasted blind. Drank from decanter over several hours. Bright, shining red cherry embedded in lots of aging, clearly animal notes. Also white pepper and a whiff of sweet spices. Beautifully velvety tannins - yet with grip. In a magnificent spot right now - great, expressive fruit coupled with the ripeness of age. A lack of versatility is maybe what keeps me from going to the realm of excellence (95+). Impressive stamina even after hours in the glass.

Restrained aromatics showing fine oak notes, citric notes but also pineapple, fresh green herbs and even a hint of spices. Rocky minerality. Tons of fresh acidity on the palate and dry as a bone. Limited complexity, but the pieces fit together well. Not overly expressive with precision the main strength here. Wondering if maybe closed currently and best to revisit in 2024? Having said that, did pair with fresh oysters which was great.

Tasted blind. Oak notes of sweet wood, nutty and faint citric aromas underlining more dominant stone fruit. Even a bit of tropical fruit popping up. Herbal and grassy too. Over time more smoke and a bit of petrol. Concentrated and dense with a texture that is slightly creamy. Perfect amount of crisp acidity to carry this heavyweight. Palate kicks off with almost crunchy saltiness. Given the intensity and higher acidity than I'm used to with Hermitage Marsanne this one probably has a long way to go still. Already great today, but likely even better in 5 years' time.

Tasted blind. Decanted ca 1h which seemed about right. But probably also no harm in going straight from bottle to glass (or mouth) I think. Mon-cherry fruit, kirsch and some ripe dark berry occasionally as well. Slightly peppery. Initially lots of animal flavours which settle down over time. Toppings of spices (cinnamon) and dried herbs. A bit of heat on the palate, otherwise slightly animal and specifically meaty. Trapezist-like balance with aroma intensity easily harbouring velvety tannins and alcohol. Versatility is second to none: After a meaty start there were candy fuit like appearances and after 2-3h - for dessert if you like - dark choclate. If you follow this over 2-3 hours in the glass you are bound to experience spectacular moments. But scoring-wise this has to be at a discount to Shakti (me: 97) due to the occasional waves of heat of which there was not a trace in 2014.

P&Ped. Canned peach fruit juice and baked fruit. A fine smoke overlay coupled with some mineral ash notes and a bit of dark, aged wood. After a while also hay and white flowers. Faint ox notes here initially but disappeared after a short while. Overall in much better shape than the 1998 I had recently. There is still plenty of fresh acidity with a palate complexity easily matching the nose. Full body, tight and slightly creamy texture. Flavour wise lots of smoke, herbacious notes and a more citric type of fruit. The finish goes on and on. There is tension and power supporting the argument for easily another decade of bottle age potential - if oxidization is contained which seems a material issue judging from previous CT notes. Over time a bit of honey and honey melon. Fabulous drinking window right here for this bottle and well worth maintaining a small stock for immediate pleasure.

Unfortunately muted nose initially - maybe try with a decant. Lemon zest, green apple, salty mineral notes and chalk. A bit of oak and very nice sweet spicy notes. Finely structured with a creamy texture and fresh acidity. Round withJv a bit of green melon on the palate. Over time more dense and opulent, becoming more expressive. Scoring this rather low due the initial muted appearance, but I did like this a lot. A great brand / quality / price mix in my view.

Red cherry and raspberry, dried tomato, dried salad herbs, slightly smokey. Lots of fresh acidity, but nice red berry fruit and a med+ finish. Didn’t decant, but would advise to do so, gained in expression over time in the glass. A linear and puristic brunello which is bound to improve with additional bottle age.

This continues to amaze me. Slightly salty mineral notes, fine green herbal aromatics. The fruit is slightly citric, but there is also green apple and pear. More pear on the palate and a citric finish. One of the best value for money whites I’ve ever had, being confirmed time and again.

Jammy brambleberry fruit. Black olives, slightly meaty with a sweet spices overlay. Nicely balanced palate with good acidty, structural tannins and a fruity finish. My first Reva and I’m liking this a lot despite quite a bit of extraction. Do a careful decant to lose the sediment and then pleasure is guaranteed.

Out of magnum. Very puristic. Sour cherry. fruit with hints of earthy oak. Much more restrained oak than I would have expected - which is great. A slight acidity overhang, otherwise with a fresh and cool fruit on the palate. This is superb stuff for the region and clearly my favourite if you want to go for local produce.

Tasted blind sporting a massive hangover hence rather short notes here. Also my first encounter with Realm’s Dr Crane - but needless to say the this vineyard in the hands of this producer is bound to deliver something spectacular. Opulent intensity with a jammy cherry fruit screaming at you from the glass. Lots of vanilla, cloves and anis spices. Nicely balanced palate giving it a round dress despite the muscular body. Stunning.

Tasted blind. Guessed this about 25 years too young - so already extra points deserved here for how well this aged! Dark fruit profile but with a red cherry core. Some wet forest floor, leather and floral notes of roses. Still some fruit left, too. Lots of leather and tobacco on the palate. Tannins are silky but still present. Still pretty dense, round yet with a decent level of power. Wouldn‘t be surprised at all if some one told me this was pretty much undrinkable when young, but it is absolutely fine now and amazingly I would say could do with even more bottle age!

Tasted blind. Initially some wet cellar notes but disappearing over 1-2h in the glass. Wet earth, red currant and red cherry, leather, dried herbs. A bit of smoke. More leather and tobacco on the palate with a sweetish red and surprisingly fresh berry fruit. Lots of tobacco on the mid-length finish. Second pour got more mushroom from the onset. In a great spot right now with an impressive inter-play of secondary and tertiary aromatics. I would recommend a proper double-decant for immediate pleasure.

Tasted blind. Decanted. Sweet jamy, baking spices, green fresh herbs but also herbal tea. Silky and incredibly light on the palate. Berries rather blue and a bit of cassis. Incredible lightness. A sexy nose yet with elegant finesse. Soft tannins, tension and concentration on the the palate. Despite the lightness no lack of depth. This is brilliant stuff and fully confirmed by last encounter in a Harlan vertical where the 2012 came in on top.

P&P and then drank from a decanter. Licorice, dark berries like blueberries or bramble berry jam. A topping of baking spices. Then wooden box and a bit of tobacco. Coca Cola candy, leather and minty herbal notes, some truffles. On the palate a bit of heat and still grippy - potentially even slightly green - tannins. Acidity has a sharp edge to it. After a solid first impression, definitely improving with time in the glass adding lava stone minerality, deep earthiness and intense black tea herbal aromatics. Later also slightly meaty with cinamon spices. I like the singularity here a lot. Not in an ideal spot. right now, but will get there. Wouldn‘t be surprised scoring this 2-3 notches higher within a 5-10 years time frame.

Tasted blind. And nailed it. Oxidative notes prevail with a nutty profile. Dried wood and smokey notes. The fruit then with lots of freshness, mostly citric in character. Fine moussage but any less and this would have been too flat. Which is also the reason for a lower score than last time (95). Advice: drink a notch cooler than you typically would.
