Hennessy

X.O Cognac

Strong and spicy and deep and complex. It is fruitier and more aromatic than scotch but also more elegant. Not sure Id pay hundreds for a bottle. Fruity palate with prunes, Corinth raisins and sticky toffee pudding. Palate: Dark chocolate and over-ripe plums. A little sultana character, cocoa butter and spice. Finish: SPICY, vanilla-led finish with all kinds of dark fruits. Hennessy XO if you want something stronger and dynamic; Remy Martin XO if you want a smooth and mellow ride. — 6 months ago

The follow up to the 03 Brane-Cantenac. So good but still youthful now as I mentioned this 97 still is in @Paul T- Huntington Beach recent post of his 2013.

The tannins are round, softened but still meaty & somewhat tarry.

The nose is still brooding. Ripe lush, ruby, fruits of, blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked to poached strawberries. Dark, rich, sweet forest floor, mix of Indian & Asian spice with palate piercing heat, notes of Cognac, steeped tea, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, black licorice, tarry notes, day crushed rocks, limestone minerals, grey volcanic minerals, light tobacco with ash, used leather, sandalwood, bright, fresh; dark, red, blue florals with violets.

The palate is ripe, lush, juicy & floral fruits of; blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, dark cherries, baked to poached strawberries, raspberry highlights & pomegranate. Dark, rich, sweet forest floor, mix of Indian & Asian spice, notes of Cognac, steeped tea, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, black licorice, tarry notes, day crushed rocks, limestone minerals, grey volcanic minerals/ash, moist, grey clay, light tobacco with ash, used leather, sandalwood, bright, fresh; dark, red, blue florals with violets, insane, waterfall acidity, woven, layered, structured, nicely tensioned with great length and a incredibly balanced, well polished finish that goes on for two to three minutes.

If you are 15-20 years plus patient w/ these bottling’s, they are one of the very best values in Napa Valley.

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

Pontet Canet tasting and dinner with Alfred Tesseron.

The 96 is a nice surprise add from Clyde’s cellar. Thank you Clyde.

This 96 is beautifully floral. The evolution is right around its peak. The body is medium full and the tannins soft. It’s an elegant beauty.

The fruits are ripe and delicious. Leaner blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, strawberries and shades of raspberries. Soft earth; dry top soil, dry rock, limestone minerals, old tobacco, soft leather, cedar with dry and withering red & dark florals. The acidity is like a waterfall. The long finish is well balanced fruit & earth and in a sweet spot.

Tesseron Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Fun fact- the vineyards were once owned by Robbin Williams. Enjoyed a vertical tasting 2016, 2017 and 2018. 2016 was my favorite. 2018 has the best chance of becoming like 2016. Mt. Veeder fruit so I knew I would love it. Beautiful, bramble fruit, full bodied, Napa red blend. @55Seventy — a year ago

These are on my list to try, but it’s still absolutely mind blowing how these are twice as expensive as their Pontet Canet label out of Bordeaux, who has been around for decades with amazing scores.

@Shay A I was pretty shocked by the price. The 2016 was beautiful but I have had similar for less. The person pouring mentioned the Bordeaux connection but did not say Pontet Canet. I had no idea. For me I will go with the PC over this one.
