Community Tasting Notes 53

    June 7, 2018 - If this bottle is anything to go by there are years left here. Still a deep red with no signs of aging. Needed a lot of air and then the tannins softened. Bags of fruit for a supposed ‘green’ year. I will give the rest more time and revisit.

    May 9, 2018 - There's a coolness to the wine but it exhibits no overt green. You get some sandalwood, rose petals and iron filings and a very pleasant vinous sweetness. It is mid-weight, nicely balanced and developed. There's decent complexity and a finish that is crisp and refreshing.

  • Tony Ling Likes this wine: 92 points

    February 5, 2018 - PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass: Medium ruby red. Noses of smoked meat upfront, blew off to reveal cool red fruits, some soy and ‘aged’ notes.

    Great harmony on the palate, slightly more heavy-weight, silky tannins, quite mouthful. Persistent finish. Some stems flavours that are pleasant and adding to the complexity of the wine.

    A wine that builds on itself, fruits slightly fading but should keep for another 3-5 years.

  • Kiranonwine wrote:

    December 26, 2017 - Mature, loam. Forest floor, trace of fruit left but quite a strong slightly unpleasant burnt meat flavour. Softened a little with time but a bit disappointing.

    November 13, 2017 - Unfortunately, undrinkable. Either over the hill or in a bad phase

    (ARMAND Pommard Clos des Epeneaux) Arrivals

    Dear Friends,

    This is a bit much for a Monday night but the season is upon us and new arrivals are coming and going faster than I expected.

    With that, here are a few wines set to arrive this week - all are EXTREMELY LIMITED and worthy of your interest:

    2001 La Rioja Alta "Vina Arana" Reserva Rioja
    This is a torch-bearing wine of tradition - autumnal, complicated and chameleon-like - it swirls and changes in the glass over several hours with a deeply old-world, eccentric style that brings a big smile to my face. This is true Rioja as it was in the 1950s (with a year 2009 interpretation) by one of the last beacons of old-school left in Rioja. The 2001 Vina Arana (from a great year) will give the Kerouac cafÄ-set a lot to discuss - not for those weaned on Marquis-Phillips or Colgin. We have very little to offer so I had to bury it here on a Monday night:

    2007 Sylvain Langoureau Saint-Aubin "Le Sentier du Clos" 1er
    (this is not the Vermarain or Frionnes which are around $25 - the Le Sentier is priced at the same level as the En Remilly)
    Looking for undiscovered white Burgundy from 2007 to impress your friends? This wine is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you recall, St. Aubin was one of the most successful regions of Burgundy in 2007 and this wine shows us why. A complete and detailed effort with excellent ageing ability, Sylvain Langoureau has delivered a stellar performance with this wine. Compares favorably to the better 2007 Lamy examples. This producer will be a star of the district - it's only a matter of time.

    The Le Sentier du Clos is very hard to find.

    2004 Comte Armand Pommard 1er Clos des Epeneaux (BH91)

    The 2004 Clos des Epeneaux may be a value at this point but it needs time - lots of time (more than 2012 - I would say closer to 2016-2018):

    2005 Larkmead Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

    One of the very best price/value examples left in Napa?

    Thank you,
