I really love these wines from Thibaud Boudignon. This one has been consistent over 5 bottles. Petrol on the noise, honey and lanolin. It’s really excellent, and the SVDs are even better.

Slightly corked
  • winepog commented:

    2/24/23, 8:05 AM - Bummer. I sometimes think that Champagne is less likely to be corked, although this might not be true. We do tend to drink Champagne a little younger than other wines, and maybe that has something to do with it. Logically, it would be corked from time to time like other wines, but I cannot recall ever having a corked Champagne.

Opened 90 mins before dinner with the Thursday group at Christys
When I first poured into the decanter the nose was beautiful grenache, white pepper and meaty aromas
Palate was a bit tight, dry fruit and very strong tannins
I think wine is closed now Or needed more time on the decanter go open up

11/6/2021 - sfwinelover1 Likes this wine:
92 points
First of 3 ($42.99@) from online wine clearinghouse #2. On the fairly subdued nose and palate, herbal earthiness, light florals, red cherries and currants, a savory, saline note, and smoke. Medium garnet, light to medium bodied, medium legs. Powerful acidity, medium+ tannins, no heat. VG intensity, medium+ persistence, medium complexity. Time was, my cracking a 6 year old Barolo would signal time for a mental competency check, but with the usual excuses--have 2 more, CT reviews indicating readiness, and a general feeling that the '15 vintage is readying faster than many of its counterparts, away we go. This tumbled out the bottle electrically, with jolting but by no means unpleasant acidity, which after a couple hours of air, remained very present, although largely integrated. Super vibrant, food friendly (shining with both crab mac & cheese and a broiled pork chop and veggies) and shockingly balanced for a young barolo, nothing was out of place here, and this highly accessible wine was a pleasure to drink. But what this wasn't, at least at this point, was tremendously profound nor expressive. Much like your top of his junior high school class nephew who keeps interrupting his teachers and otherwise falling short in the social graces, this may well develop, and it could find some more interesting notes, but at this point, this enjoyable wine isn't qualitatively or quantitatively different than the '13 Ascheri barolo I reviewed recently, and, even at the clearinghouse price, was 40% more (let's not even go into the wine.com price), and it bears about as much resemblance to the earlier in the year '12 Vajra Bricco as my syntax in these TNs does to a Shakespearean sonnet. I'll hold off on my other bottles for a couple of years, but you're certainly not committing barolicide if you drink it now. 91-92
  • winepog commented:

    11/7/21, 8:36 AM - One of the best reviews I have read. Cheers! My experience with Manzone is that they are generally more austere than other Barolos. It is my plan to give them 10-15 years minimum - I will report back in a couple years.

Really want to like it so I can buy some 1.5L and 3L local retailer has on fire sale prices...

At PnP reminds me of the '90s toasted marshmallow Merlot fad. Boozey, weak finish. Barest hint of tangy fruit hiding under all that damn diacetyl. Whiff of sulfur at finish?

Buttery popcorn mostly gone day two but so is everything else except some heat and some pepper.

"70-79 C Below/Average" but allowing some people like wine that tastes of margarine. 84, I guess.

Wine Spectator was nearly right. Alas, 2021 is a year too late for my bottle. Not quite the funk and niceness I noted in 2019, but a good bottle nonetheless. A nice way to break in a new patio.

PnP has a sour taste - give it even 20 minutes to blow off and you’ll be rewarded. Subtle fruit, earth and mushroom. Drink up now, me thinks.

This is one of the most masterful bottle I have ever tasted and counting with only one hand. I could recall a surreal La Tache 1961, a magistral Dom. Leflaive Chevalier Montrachet '98, a splendid Musigny 2001 from Freddy Mugnier, and Ch. Latour '90.
Upon opening this delivered the most intriguing aromatic balance of dried apricot, pineapple, grapefruit, quince, honey, flowery, marzipan and slightly nutty. In the glass as it is being poured it delivers most suave colors of orange, gold, light earthy brown color which already promises to be gorgeously yet delicately oily. On the palate, well this was a masterclass of exquisite balance, of the qualities above mentioned but added to it a remarkable, energetic, vivacity, combined with sheer uplifting waves. The acidity level is incredible and cuts through the initial sweetness effortlessly providing a huge wave of delicious conflicts of sweet/saline combination which is irrestible!
It starts with this gorgeous taste of sweet dried marmelades and above mentioned fruits but then from the mid palate it delivers a swirl of flavors of dried orange, grapefruit, apricot, honey, salted caramel, gorgeous acidity, which by being combined create a tornado of freshest energy, uplifting our whole body and coating each of the taste buds available and making us all feel totally at awe and up in the clouds.
I simply cannot understand how so many profiles and qualities can coexist within the same bottle and only Santa(some would call god) could deliver something so far beyond our expectations.(and trust me, the expectation was high!) An incredible masterwork and a big applause to Noël Pinguet, whom I hear is now a painter... Wow, unforgettable. Cheers,

    2/22/21, 8:37 AM - I had one from a 375ml and I have one left. Opened it a few months ago. It was outstanding. Would definitely look for more. Agree that this is both dry and sweet at the same time.

Color of medium red, slight lightness around edges. Scents of raspberry. Tastes of raspberry and strawberry, with a much more mellow mouthfeel than you would get in a brand new vintage of KB pinot noir. With this age, it’s no longer a fruit bomb, which I don’t say as a negative.

2017 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Drank after a one hour decant. I love Williams Selyem wines, but this one was not my favorite. Lacks the bright red fruit, plush mouthfeel, and complexity/spice of their best wines (and even their Sonoma County PN in very good years). The nose is mostly dark fruit more suggestive of Sonoma Coast than RRV. On the palate, there is very prominent acidity, new oak, and some sour cherry, but nothing complex or exciting. Will try again.
  • winepog commented:

    1/22/21, 8:16 AM - I had one a year or two ago and thought it was way to young. Maybe this just needs another 5 years minimum?

N.V. Krug Champagne Brut Grande Cuvée Champagne Blend
NR. This was a bottle recently found tucked away in a liquor store that's very much non-fine wine oriented. From the label style, cork, and known ages of some other NV Champagnes I found with it, it dates from around 1999. While currently it was on its side in a darkish corner at sub 70F conditions, I couldn't guess at storage conditions for the last two decades. Still a little hiss upon opening. Oxidized in nature. It wasn't spoiled at all, but it was over the hill in the same way some women are still sexy in their sixties. Past prime perhaps, but still a lot to offer. Glad I have a second bottle of it.
  • winepog commented:

10/1/2020 - forceberry wrote:

A blend of Tempranillo (80%), Garnacha (15%), Mazuelo and Graciano, the grapes sourced from the El Bosque vineyard. Fermented spontaneously in old and very large oak fermenters, aged for 5 years in barrels and then for a further 3 years in bottles before release. 13,5% alcohol. Tasted half-blind.

Quite dark, somewhat translucent and relatively youthful deep ruby red color with a pale garnet rim. Fragrant, sweet-toned and somewhat perfumed nose with aromas of wild strawberries, some raspberries, light wild floral tones, a little bit of exotic spice, sweet developed hints of wizened red fruits and marmalade and a floral touch of violets. The wine is dry, firm and relatively acid-driven on the palate with a medium body and precise, elegant flavors of tart lingonberries and cranberries, some savory old wood spice, a little bit of marmaladey raspberry, light ferrous notes of blood, a hint of ripe black cherry and a touch of farmhouse funk. The wine has a lovely, silky texture yet it sports wonderfully precise structure with its noticeably high acidity and somewhat grippy medium-plus tannins. The finish is firm, moderately grippy and very long with complex, dry flavors of sour cherries, some leathery funk, a little bit of crunchy cranberries, light notes of savory wood spice, a hint of sweet-and-sour lingonberry jam and a touch of earth. The bright acidity makes the wine end on a quite mouthwatering note.

A wine that came across as noticeably different from the other red wines in our Spanish Tempranillo half-blind tasting. If such an analogy makes sense, all the other wines felt more "Cabernet" in style - the classicist coming across as Bordeaux, the modernist more like Napa Cabs - while this wine was the only one that was distinctively "Burgundian" in style - lighter in weight, more delicate in taste, wonderfully perfumed in the nose and sporting beautiful, Pinot Noir-like acidity. Many said this wine was underwhelming and most likely not going to age that well in the cellar, but I guess they were just expecting a more robust style of wine; for me, this was a classic, well-made Bosconia showing outstanding freshness, precision and sense of sophistication. Still a mere baby at the age of 14 years, I expect this wine to age gracefully for another two decades or so. Excellent value at 22,25€.

Purchased at an out of the way store for $12 for a split. A bargain! Rich notes of orange peel, lime, whte flowers, tangerine, and honey. Lot's of honey.

Taste is luxurious and lasts a solid minute. Having tried this same village and vineyard combo from 2011 and 1983 and 1976 I can say this wine is in the same league. The wine is loaded with acidity and has the thick viscousity to last for decades.

2012 Wind Gap Wines Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard Sonoma Coast
Completely closed. No nose at all, and almost no taste for the first hour. At 90 minutes after opening there was a bit of spice and a strong bite of alcohol (I know it’s only 13.5%), but that’s about it. If I tasted this blind I couldn’t even tell what varietal it was. I’m disappointed, and hoping maybe this is an off bottle, as I’ve got 2 more.
