  • Nico P. Likes this wine:

    August 4, 2019 - 14%. Dark red core. Complex, fragrant nose - highlights of black cherry, blackberry, and anise. Powdery tannins. This wine is in a really good phase now.

    July 29, 2019 - Inky colored. Ripe plum. Tar, balsamic vinegar. Massive tannins remain. Really good now, will be terrific in 8-10 years.

    July 7, 2019 - It opens with a sweet touch, thyme, chocolat, grilled impressions, black fruits and caramelised biscuits. It has a very long and rich middle part with a firm backbone and a fine acidity.

    June 24, 2019 - Pen ink, resin, and camphor on the nose. On the palate, plum, black cherry, and notes of ash, earth, and anise, with light smooth tannins and good acidity on the medium to long finish. This opened up over a few hours and became smoother and richer. Although it's early in its drinking window, and may yet improve some, it's already excellent with two or three hours of air. The Cellartracker drinking window looks about right. This was a very good value at about $60.

    (GALARDI Terra di Lavoro) Galardi Redux Dear Friends, I’ve been hounded for large format versions of Galardi’s Terra di Lavoro but our shipment from Europe was slow to depart (what else is new? Is anything ever early?) - it is now set to arrive in Seattle next week so, here you go, all with perfect provenance directly from the winery cellar. Needless to say, this is a special set of magnums and 3.0’s – if you have an important occasion coming up in 2020 or so, any of the formats/vintages below would certainly turn a few heads... (for background on the 2008 Galardi, the original offer for the 750ml’s is below) 2008 Galardi Terra di Lavoro (Roccamonfina/Campania) 1.5lt - 2008 Galardi Terra di Lavoro (Roccamonfina/Campania) 3.0lt - 2007 Galardi Terra di Lavoro (Roccamonfina/Campania) 3.0lt - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED up to 12 x magnums of 2008, 6 x 3.0’s of the 2008 and 3 x 3.0’s of the 2007. To order: niki@garagistewine.com Thank you - - Jon Rimmerman ***************************** (for background, here’s the original offer for the 2008 Galardi, plus a 2010 update from a few months ago that is looking more and more accurate as I taste through the regions – you can add the Northenr Rhone to this list – look out in 2010 for one of the great, classic years of the past twenty. As good as 2009 may be (which is still debatable), nearly every vintner in Ampuis over the weekend was gushing over 2010 as it appears to possess both classicism and intensity, sort of an 1988 meets 1989. There’s a long way to go in the elevage but keep your fingers crossed...) UPDATE: Thoughts on 2010 Don’t look now but 2010 is looking very good in Beaujolais and Burgundy – very good indeed. In a similar vein to 2010 in Bordeaux (that I reported on a month ago), the samples bubbling in tanks around Morgon and Beaune have a classicism missing from the deeply pitched, delicious and fruit-filled 2009’s. It’s a small vintage, with very little wine but (so far), it reminds me of a combination of 1996 and 1999 – it has the tannic hold and minerality of 1996 but the wonderful fruit of 1999. Could be another fabulous year in certain districts but bottles will be very scarce. Lower levels will not be as immediately successful as in 2009 but the grand cru level wines may be even more successful due to a wall of structure missing from many 2009’s. A collector’s year for those with the fortitude and patience to wait. By the way, Bordeaux continues down the path I originally reported on – could be a vintage for the ages but it’s still far too early to tell. Oh, the fortunate 2010 birthday girls and boys! - Jon Rimmerman ******************** 2008 Galardi Dear Friends, I was going to save this for February of next year but the requests have become so large that it’s not in anyone’s interest to wait. The winery has been overwhelmed by order requests from around the globe and a fervent grey marketing campaign by US retailers has been in full swing since September so time is of the essence (keep in mind, the winery has severely cracked down on the grey marketing of their 2008 – if you are waiting on futures of 2008 Galardi purchased at unrealistic prices, you need to inquire as to the wine’s point of origin and exact delivery date – Galardi has cut-off a number of European sources that sold a boatload of grey market 2008 to US retailers on a pre-arrival basis a few months ago – the wine will not be delivered to the European grey-marketers and they will have to find the wine elsewhere. Where will they find it? I have no idea as 97pt wines do not grow on trees. As most long-term Email List members know, I'm not writing this so you purchase the wine from us, quite the contrary – everyone purchases enough other wine from us year-round – I'm just keeping you in the loop if your hard-earned funds have been given to speculators that will have a very difficult time delivering the wine). As the single most requested wine of the season (at any price-point), here you go... VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as an underpriced version of Galardi that should evolve for decades. While it does not posses the massive fruit extraction of past years, that may be a good thing. Its elegance reminds the taster of a Campanian Margaux and the terroir is arguably the most expressive its ever been with Terra di Lavoro. In short, compared to just about anything from anywhere (Grange? Guigal? Leoville Poyferre? Montrose? Ornellaia? On and on) this wine is worthy of the highest praise and adulation yet the tariff is now among the lowest of its peers (I attempted to bring this in at but it was just not possible – at $58.90, it’s still one of my buys of the year at the very highest tier.) This parcel has impeccable provenance – ONE SHIPMENT ONLY at this price. FIRST COME FIRST SERVED up to 48/person until we run out... 2008 Galardi Terra di Lavoro (Campania) - SOLD OUT (compare at $60-100+ but not with this level of provenance) To order: niki@garagistewine.com This parcel is set to arrive in early Feb (please check OARS for local pick up after Feb 15th). It will ship during the Spring shipping season. Out of state orders will be held for free under ideal storage conditions (56 degrees/70%humidity) until shipping is possible. Locals may pick up at their leisure. For current local pick up and arrival/ship information, please see your OARS link below (at the bottom of this offer) - don’t know how to access your OARS?
