Cinnamon says that if any wine deserves 100, this is it. Astounding length, balance and true concentration in a package that never strays from medium bodied, dry and food friendly. Like any great wine, words don't do it justice. With ribeye, Emperess rice and asparagus. — 10 days ago
The 2010 BdB from Roederer is surprisingly exotic and toasty, very different than my impression of the vinclair years ago. This is all Grand Cru, done at slightly lower pressure and is in fact CLR's smallest production wine. Thanks for the picture @Jim Westby ! — 6 days ago
#steakandclaretnight chez moi with Marin Sun Farms ribeye and this rarely-seen 2nd label of Pape-Clement. Although a little dodgy looking with a low fill and signs of seepage, this 28 year old just gained dark fruit and freshness in the decanter. Delicious, if a bit simple for a nearly 30 year old claret. — 16 days ago
