Community Tasting Notes 3

  • Cailles wrote: 92 points

    October 15, 2021 - No notes taken. Fill level 3-4cm. Unknown provenance. The wine needed a a few minutes to gain intensity and tension. Medium expressive on the nose with fine tertiary aromas and some red berries. More precise and pronounced on the palate with leather, meaty notes, herbs, wet forest floor and some minerality circling around a still intact red fruit core. Overall quite balanced, with melted tannins but good tension and good acidity, slightly creamy and medium length. 92 pts but the bottle was not standing upright for an appropriate amount of days in order for the sediments to set and hence the wine was a bit cloudy. I guess with proper handling this could have been a 94+ pts wine.

    July 22, 2016 - Poker night - Mostly double blind - Rayas, Masseto, Schrader, QC and etc. (Reston, Va): Perfect condition. My bottle. Initially some guess Burgundy but quickly change to CDP. Really soft and warm decadent red fruits, a hint of tobacco and garrigue. Fully integrated beautifully balance palate. Most guesses '89 or '90. Alan correctly calls the producer and misses the vintage only by a year,, i,e. he thinks '75. Bravo! Really lovely mature CDP.
