Drinking and Collecting since 1980...many fond memories forged in the company of good food, great wines and better friends!

Fatter side but held up nicely for a 05! — a month ago
Mid shoulder fill and bad cork shows poor storage prior to my possession...and it showed! Stewed prunes, Madeira notes...oh well! — 14 days ago
Tad sweet fir my palate! — a month ago
A little bottle shock as you just brought back from HK...Leverage! I’ve never used this descriptor before but it just ratchets up every level of intensity and complexity as she opens! Wow! — 21 days ago
Tad tightly wound at opening but blossomed in 1-2 hours of drinking. Elegant, silky pillowy mouth feel and lush but focused red fruit to black fruit as it dropped front to back...balanced and soft but sturdy tannins. A true 1er Roumier! — a month ago
Tad astringent but still that smoky Syrah and toasted spices... — a month ago
