Community Tasting Notes 6

    October 28, 2019 - Trying another bottle of this: again has an oxidative style to it yet there is a ton of good underlying material evident. No question this is a reconditioned bottle, probably done in the early 90s(?) by the appearance of the capsule/cork and it's having been imported by one of Remoissenet's regional accomplices back in the heydays. (In this case Stacole down in Boca). Lots of savory and umami notes which came forward after much of the coffee grounds notes eased up. I've had one excellent bottle and 2 seriously underwhelming and/or flawed bottles. Thumbs down to re-bottling and "reconditioning" here! Much more of it occurred after the buyout.

    March 23, 2019 - Had hoped to celebrate a reunion with my cellar after a winter hiatus to Florida. But sadly, this bottle showed poorly, especially immediately after opening. Very vegetal bottle stink with seemingly shrill VA, both of which slowly dissipated. Some nice fruit eventually emerged and the wine was more than drinkable, especially with some soft cheeses and a liver pate. But it was nothing close to better bottles of this I've enjoyed. Clearly a later bottling after the new regime took over, the cork was perhaps 10-15 years new.

    March 3, 2018 - La Paulée de San Francisco - Gala Dinner (The Fairmont - San Francisco CA): Late night, small glass, brief note. Fully mature red fruit with Vosne-styled spice and very good balance. Still bright enough and nicely clean.

    March 3, 2018 - La Paulée de SF Gala Dinner (Fairmont Hotel, SF CA): Pretty nose with dried cherry and black tea. Still has some freshness and brightness on the complex palate.

    August 25, 2017 - Deeply colored; surprisingly hearty and fullish; rich with glorious mature fruit. Very long finish. A treat! (Having drunk hundreds of bottle of Remoissenet P&F, this was the only bottle I've ever seen marked "Roland Remoissenet" (see photo).
