2004 Philipponnat Champagne Brut Clos des Goisses Champagne Blend

Still very youthful, precise fine champagne, feels as if it needs another 3 to 4 years for flavour to develop.

2005 Château Pontet-Canet Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend

Huge colour and much more approachable than a couple of years ago. This is still a big dense Pauillac that needed decanting. Lots of dark sumptuous ripe fruit, solid and rich, tannins are still pronounced, still a bit firm. Not sure if this will ever be elegant but no shortage of stuffing.

    9/26/18, 1:55 PM - Hi Mark, by the time we drank the 05 it would have had about 3 hours in the decanter, big dark fruit and strong but ripe tannins. A popular wine around the table but for my own palate I would probably choose to hold back for a couple more years. I’ve not tasted 03 for a while but in general I find the fruit has greater density and more accessibility in Pauillac than 05’s have up until now, but both can be great in their own way. Worth a go!

2009 Sylvain Cathiard Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir
12/10/2016 - Chimer Likes this wine:

Still very deep colour, no sign of oxidation which I have come across once before with this wine. A huge crowd pleaser - full fleshy and opulent on the night with a seamless satin finish, not overly complex, but a real delight to share with friends.
  • Chimer commented:

    1/5/17, 2:30 AM - On reflection it must be an earlier vintage of Cathiard Vosne Villages that was oxidised - quite possibly 2002 or 2003, the memory lingers as expectations are of course so high when pulling the cork on a big name.
