Les Boudots Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1990

1990 | Pinot Noir
Manière-Noirot; Les Boudots 1er Cru
Burgundy; Côte de Nuits, Nuits-Saint-Georges, France
(92-94; Drink 2023-2030+)

Decanted 2H at time of notes, likely 4-6H appreciated.

Ripe red raspberry, wet carbon steel, damp chalk, chilled black cherry, charred grape vines; Dried cherry, dried blackberry, dried garden soil, medium tannins, impressive level of acidity. A standard showing for aged 1990 Burgundy, strong with many years ahead. Will 1990 or 1999 live longer? Time will tell...

Paired to Filipino Chicken Adobo in Coconut Broth, wonderful!

Estate Grown Carneros Pinot Noir 2018

[Tasted on October 1, 2022 at Home]

Purchased during September 2022 visit to the winery. Wine is produced from Estate Carneros fruit. Dried cherry, raspberry and red plum fruit, with cinnamon spice, carbon, minerality and an effervescent note. Spice and fruit driven with nice backbone of acidity.

Château Tronquoy-Lalande

Saint-Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Had everything that characterizes the left bank of Bordeaux. Dark, leathery fruit, staying narrow on the palet but revealing layers as it travels from the front of the mouth towards finally settling in the back of your throat. Earthy undernotes characterized with hints of minerals and carbon. Saint Estephe is known for slightly dryer heavier tannins in their blends. Very present here but well rounded. — 2 years ago

Soave Classico Garganega

Strawberry and pear on the nose gives way to a robust honey flavor that could be confused for a mead. Surprisingly the flavor improved with carbon dioxide off-gassing. — 2 years ago

Chianti Colli Senesi 2016

Didn't know what to expect from this - it has surprisingly lightweight glass bottle - low carbon 💚. Lovely, typical sour cherry aromas and leather verging on sweaty saddle aromas (not in a bad way IMO). Peppery cherry flavours and satisfying, robust, dry tannic finish — 2 years ago

Chianti Rùfina Sangiovese Blend 2018

This is the elegant side of Sangiovese. Light in color, packed with beautifully pure red fruits. It's incomprehensible how a 13 dollar wine can be this good.
Amazing and surprising paring with Al Carbon tacos and Pollo Mole.
