At La Mar - Lima - Peru - with friends (Vivi, Vava) and my wife (Rê). A great and solid corton charlemagne. The vivid colour, the intriguing nose, and the profound taste represent the best of corton in a very good vintage. Solid score. Drink now. Of course, magic wines and best company is the real secret of life.

Beautiful pomerol. I think 1989 is better but this one is in the perfect shape and shows that 1985 vintage is a very good vintage to drink now.

This bottle is fresh, young and perfect balanced with signs of maturity and fine acidity. Some of the last bottles have showed more advanced evolution, but this one is in the nice place now. Drink now

Great cristal. Will rival 1996, and 1990. The drink window is open, but wait 5-10y and this treasure will reveal the complexity of mature cristal (95-97).

Beautiful sauternes. Perfect now, with great balance between sweet and acidity. Orange, mango, honey, apricot and a soft spicyness. The 2001 is the greatest sauternes vintage of this 21 century. Drink now while wait 2001 Yquem.

disg. 11/19/2007 - Mature Selosse is always a treat. This bottle is in the nice place now, with pinot flavours and a long finish. Strawberries, bread, honey, spicy... The acidity is surprisingly present for a old champagne by Selosse, what make this wine so special in the context of a full body champ. I recommend hold recent disgorgement rose Selosse if you wish to explore the real limit of this elixir. If you can find this champs, buy and start to dream!!! Drink now

Deg 09/05/2006. The deg date is essential to Selosse and show the evolution of the wine and the best moment to drink. I like older champs and to me this is so good. Oxidative and secundary flavours, with honey, toast bread, spicy. Very good with Japanese food. Drink now.

The exception of the vintage. The 2002 Monfortino is a monster wine. Approachable now after 2 hours decant, but young and a bit closed. Wait at least 5 years to try (95-97 potential)

This is a great barolo year. Start to drink after 30 min decant. A beautiful wine with a complex nose of truffles, wet earth, black fruit, and a touch of mint. Tannins are soft and the acidity advise there is a long way to go. The taste is very good, full of Piedmont flavors, with a long finish. I think this is as good as 1989. Drink now or hold

Good wine for the vintage. Tannins a bit rustic, but I don't know it can improve. A good choice with food.

This wine never disappoint. No decant. Great bottle of mature bordeaux. Unbelievable nose of a mix of berries, some graphite, truffles and coffee. The taste is zen, with good acidity, soft tannins and a moderate finish. Drink now. One of the best values when I think about great bordeaux of the last century.
