10 years Old and lots of life to come ( but not this bottle ) Typical Bordeaux blend with Merlot in front and very Dark color. Wonderfull nose and tast. Nice to have a star from St.Emilion , do not forget Bordeaux with some age…( note to myself )

Melted butter , soft mature apple , a bit like old apple , not as a bad thing. Big wine and not oxidized - thank god. Not as good as the Batard-Montrachet from the same year.

I am not a Old angry man.....but I think it is to heavy and my palate has turned against PN and mostly from Burgundy. Therefor I am not to jugde. The remaning bottles is 2016 and perhaps more me....86 p.

  • carstenf commented:

    5/28/20, 1:35 PM - Hi Pim. What I tryed to say was , that I prefer Pinot wines and that some wines in my cellar is more heavy in style. A Rhone wine ( and I have some ) is not my style these days , the grapes used in these wines are more dark , heavy and missing the elegance and minerality. Still that is a matter of one’s taste 😊

2015 Faiveley Mercurey 1er Cru Clos du Roy Pinot Noir

Nice Mercury - got better after some time open ( 3 hours )
Strawberry , mineral , elegant and not heavy. My only bottle ( 2015 )
but have bought more Faiveley Mercurey. Next time I will wait a bit longer before tasting it or 3-4 hours on carafel.

    1/14/19, 10:51 PM - Good morning ( Copenhagen time...) The Clos de Roy is much better with more weight and structure but still the normale one is a good Mercurey. Faiveley make several Mercurey and I think that Clos de Roy is the best ��

2006 Clos Mogador Priorat Grenache Blend, Grenache

Priorat is ( I think ) often a not elegant wine. Often with some edges . This was perhaps a bit too young to start with , but opened up later. Rustic is the word - but still more elegant than the most Priorat. It was a nice and very GOOD wine and I think a few more years will do the trick.

    Do NOT drink a lot Priorat , but it Can be very good.
