2009 Louis Roederer Champagne Cristal Brut Champagne Blend

Possibly an off-bottle. Very reductive and yeasty on the nose. Opened up with aeration to fresh citrus, toast and bright red fruits. Too little acidity but could be the bottle. Not amazing but enjoyable

    6/8/20, 9:24 AM - You know you can also not rate the wines? They appear as NR. Just leave the rating blank. Hope it helps, otherwise by giving 100 points you actually rate the wines you taste

2010 Domaine de Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Pèzerolles Pinot Noir

84 points
This 2010 De Montille Pommard 1er Cru Les Pezerolles was surprisingly expressive and elegant, not your usual rustic and tannic Pommard. 66% whole cluster fermentation. Dark berry fruits, strawberry, earthy ripe stems and delicate spices. One of the most elegant wine of the Pommard and Volnay themed evening. Premier Cru intensity with good acidity and freshness. Drink now to 2035. (84/100)

    5/24/20, 4:53 AM - Factually taking the points scale you use, what you write as your intention to do is not what you then do. If the population of this network assign 85-100 they use all this scale, while your greatest wines (which are some of the greatest of all times) achieve max 95, never more, as your scale is 80-95. When I read your review it makes perfect sense, but the rating is not aligned to the network and I know the comparison is just by simply adding 5 points to your score. I am not saying your philosophy is wrong, actually I think it is sensible, I am just saying something like: if you drive in Formula 1 then you drive an F1 car, not a motorbike. It is alignment to context of where you operate. Your scale is on avg as large as the one used in this network, just 5 points lower

    5/25/20, 3:02 AM - Agree as said the review is great, the score however is out of context and quite confusing vs CT network band. It is not helpful to use 80-95 instead of 85-100 on avg as all other 500k plus users do. The scale would make sense if the max rating would not be 95 but 100 for the very best wines tasted but that is not the case so it is just applied confusingly. Nothing personal, I just want to make a point to help others, it is not the first comment on the rating scale

This is still in good shape. Gold color. Mushroom and brioche on the nose, good freshness and long elegant finish. A bit sweeter than I expected. Very rich, Bollinger GA style. Simply beautiful and something you would like to drink daily!

2015 Philippe Colin Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes Chardonnay
Not so good
