Chateau St Jean Malbec 2009

Poonawatta Estate

The 1880 Eden Valley Shiraz 2009

What a disarming wine. It’s so fabulously affable and approachable that it’s hard to turn a serious eye to, yet it has a depth and complexity that lingers well beyond that soft and silken upfront charm. Plum, cocoa, stewed fruit, blackberry, delicate tobacco, supple tannin. Slips dangerously over the palate. Feels like it’s drinking in its prime and will linger here for several years at least. — 7 days ago

Giacomo Conterno

Cascina Francia Barolo Nebbiolo 2009

I usually just live this producer and also this vintage. This bottle was slightly off. Still good but less robust than usual. Great color at the rims and a wonderful bouquet but it never quite got out of second gear. — 4 days ago

Borgo del Tiglio (Nicola Manferrari)

Ronco della Chiesa Collio Tocai Friulano 2009

This is a sensational bottle of old-vine Friulano, perfectly mature, combining freshness and nervosity (candied lime, pear, melon), dense exotic notes (tropical flowers, pine-apple, maracuja) and a gorgeously funky minerality (flint, wool, wet rocks).
Even better than the Friulanos from Miami that I tasted.

Cantina Terlano

Rarity Südtirol Alto Adige Terlano Pinot Bianco 2009

Such an interesting wine. Subtle, discreet and delicate but at the same time packed with flavour. White flowers and elderflower dominate but there is citrus and stone fruit present. Light woody notes and salty minerality round this off. Very balanced and nuanced wine. — 24 days ago

Subida Santa Ynez Valley Tocai Friulano 2009

A deep golden straw color. Aromas of apricot and white peach. Give your glass a little time and swirling to introduce the aroma. The texture is rich, clean and smooth. On the nose (after time) are hints of almond and sickle pear. There is a suggestion of acidity which provides a balance. Excellent. — 16 days ago

Jean Loron

Réserve Caveau Moulin-à-vent Vieilles Vignes 2009

Pretty concentrated ruby dress. Evolved nose evoking Burgundy. In the mouth a beautiful smoothness, concentration, between evolved notes and fruit still very lively. A pretty bottle full of refinement. It can be drunk on its own.
Can still age 5/10 years, maybe more.

Jolie robe rubis concentrée. Nez évolué évoquant la Bourgogne. En bouche une belle onctuosité, de la concentration, entre notes évoluées et fruit encore bien vif. Une jolie quille pleine de raffinement. Ça se boit tout seul. Peut vieillir encore 5/10 ans voir plus.
