2010 Chablis

Domaine François Raveneau

Chapelot Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Easily the most disappointing Raveanu I have ever had — a month ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Dark berries and floral notes on the nose. Black fruit, spices, light mocha - really grabs your attention on the palate. Tannins has mellowed our nicely giving the wine a velvety mouthfeel. Some signs of tertiary flavors too. Didn’t have any of the green notes the last bottle had when I last drank this wine (3yrs+ ago). — 9 days ago

Château Tour St. Joseph Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

This baby was wonderful. It a really good spot. The blue fruit shone through with a silky smooth cassis finish and interstates tannins. 😀 — 11 days ago

9.6

Such a brilliant vintage at Muellen. Insane nose. Hyperdrive. Like 9 different aromas. Would make a great Tik-Tok in the 9 panel format. Anyway. Pineapple, papaya, lemon. Candies lime, melon, slate, herbs, spice and so so much more. Insane. Complex and juicy with terrific ripeness and dazzling purity. Deep and that 10 acid being the cracked out hype man. Woot! Concentrated up the wazoo. Holy shit. What poise. A baby at 10! But will last 25 more. — 11 days ago

Terre del Vescovo

Re‘na Vota Campi Taurasini Aglianico 2010

This is a fine Aglianico that is honest and well-crafted but not for the faint of heart. Intensely gamey cured meat aromas dominate the profile up front followed by tar, licorice, fennel, smoke and violets. Mid palate is supple and silken, suggesting flavors of dried currants and peppermint candy. The finish brings a decidedly dry and ferrous minerality that screams for animal flesh, so I strongly suggest you heed that most primal call. Showing very strong concentration and firm tannic grip at nearly age 10. Seems to drink more gracefully in Burgundy glasses, and still has some maturing to do. An outstanding value and will delight the senses of those who appreciate Italian rusticity and classic food pairings from the South (THIS guy). — 13 days ago

En Remilly Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Chardonnay 2010

Just a terrific vintage for this wine. And this has many years ahead of it. But very pretty today. Rich and complex and balanced in all the right ways. — 3 days ago

Château Montrose

La Dame de Montrose Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Still youthful and structured, but with air it’s opening nicely. Graphite, cedar, cassis, bramble. Rich and tannic, bit with a long finish. No rush. — 19 hours ago

Betz Family Winery

La Serenne Yakima Valley Syrah 2010

Starts out with black & red fruit on the nose with a sultry smoky aromatic note. Darker berries on the palate with a deeep earthy/savory mid palate. Tannins are resolved, but this still shows good acidic balance. This was a cold vintage, and this has aged beautifully. — 17 hours ago
