Les Jumelles Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1961

Dark reddish amber. Deep color in the center, opaque; clear rims showing its age. Great nose… my wife would say “stinky feet”, something I just call “the funk”. Notes of black cherry, gravel, violets, musty cellar and black pepper. Very much alive in the glass and showing lots of fruit when it hits the mouth. Guesses by the fellas were early 90s La La, and one 78 La La. At first this was very much Cote-Rotie like, but with air it evolved into and out of acting as such. Pretty happy this has held up like it has. (Bday 10 of 12) — 4 days ago

9.2

Wonderful nose. Earth. Mineral. Berries. Cocoa. Floral. Appealing grapiness. Camphor. Creosote. Juicy and concentrated. It has major structure and depth. Acid is good but not great. Big tannins. Long finish. Decadent. Sneaky persistence. — 5 days ago

Aux Caudelayres Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Lyle Fass
9.3

Lovely, ripe nose of cassis, huckleberry, tobacco, plum and spice. Lovey minerality. Very fine and refined. Palate is juicy and structured with lovely purity, length and balance. Really showing well. Love Fronsac when it is on. Outstanding length. Nose is bright and high toned. Such a lively bottle of Bordeaux. Great fruit soak on the finish and terrific mineral infused texture. 9.3. Maybe 9.4 with air. Much better than my last bottle. Nose has cocoa now. Big plum. Classic right bank satellite vibes. Unreal juiciness. Tangy cassis. — 6 days ago

Bouzy Rouge Coteaux Champenois Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2008

It’s always fun trying a Coteaux Champenois still red wine from such an a wonderful house as Paul Bara. A clear ruby color with a wide brim and the smallest touch of purple. Blind, it would be easy to confuse with a nice good quality Burgundy.

The nose shows lingonberry, strawberries, and black cherries. Some really nice fresh soil and underbrush. With plenty of air and decanting time delicate perfumed flowers and olive pits.

A Bouzy Pinot Noir with a few years on it is a real treat. Light bodied with round tannins and enough depth. Generous and inviting throughout, this is never really closed off. The palate has a ton of herb goodness and cigar smoke. More red and black berries along with dirty dirt and a dash of vanilla. This is a fun, summery light Pinot. Drink chilled and sit back and enjoy.
