2010 Chablis

Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi)

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

Annata Biondi-Santi. This is absolutely delicious. Always special from this producer. Love the color. Classic Sangiovese. Orange rimmed next to the pale red. Balanced between some grippy but delicate tannins and approachable fruit. The nose has some spice and some earth but they don’t bring a kick so much as depth. The bottom line is you can tell it’s great because the wine drinks so fast! — 7 days ago

Jean-Marc Roulot

Meursault 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Wow! Couleur ne montre aucun signe de fatigue. Arômes fines d'agrumes, nectarines, fleurs blanches. Une bouche parfaite, finesse, fraîcheur, élégance, belle acidité, équilibre et classe, surtout une finale interminable. 95-96

Colour shows no sign of aging. Such a classy nose and wine, light citrus, white flowers too, such class, elegance and balance, so fresh and deep too, extremely long finish.

Tenuta di Budonetto (Maurigi)

Costa all'Ombra Sauvignon Blanc 2010

8.9

See previous note - impressive longevity on this Sicilian SB: honeyed oxidative notes, lemon curd, gooseberry, bit grassy and then when it warmed up: the telltale spearmint. What a treat, really unique although starting it’s inevitable decline. — 6 days ago

9.3

Drank 8/6/22

Excellent with grilled lamb chops

Decanted 1 hour.

On the nose blackberry, plum, and a touch of soil. On the palate blackberry, raspberry, cedar, leather, and hints of earth. Very well balanced with medium, well integrated tannins. Long finish with black fruit, soi,l and wood. I don't see this getting much better. Drink now and over the next 5 years. Delicious!

4/22/9/4/4 +50 = 93 pts.

Château Branaire (Duluc-Ducru)

St. Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Sweet tobacco notes interspersed with woodsy mushrooms, warm rye bread with toasted sesame and grill notes. Cherry and baked currant tart. Silky soft cherry open reveals exquisitely suspended smoke framing black cherry and cedar dusted black currant and dried blackberry with sage and nutmeg.

Penfolds

Bin 28 Kalimna South Australia Shiraz 2010

Very oaky on nose and palate. Far more oaky than the Syrahmi Heathcote X Shiraz I had prior to this. Ripe plums, dark chocolate and a little black pepper from a good vintage in the Barossa. This is the first of 6 bottles and will probably have one every 2 years until the early 2030s. A pity the oak is still so prominent after 12 years because the fruit was excellent - just smothered by mocha. Many will still like the style however. — 11 days ago
