Domaine Confuron-Cotetidot

Les Suchots Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Drank over two days. Closed up to start and also very loyal to this producer’s style who picks very late. Powerful bodied and extracted but opens up with dark fruit, some spices, structure and powerful tannins that start to soften up. A nice bottle, but now very expensive for what it delivers and a style I now appreciate less and less. 89-90

Bu sur deux jours. Fermé au départ et fidèle à ce producteur qui vendange très tard. De crops assez puissant, un style assez extrait aussi mais qui s’ouvre heureusement avec des épices, du fruit noir, de la structure, des tannins puissants et une longueur appréciable. Une belle bouteille au final, mais pas un achat avisé avec les prix d’aujourd’hui malheureusement, compte tenu de ce style que j’aime moins.

Domaine Michel Lafarge

Volnay Vendange Sélectionné 2009

Village wine from a hot vintage (2009) yet it is balanced and elegant. Restrained nose, red fruit, stone and mineral, medium bodied, long finish. Such a brilliant producer. — 6 months ago

Thanks for the note. I own some of this and I have been wondering how it was holding up!

Renaissance Vineyard & Winery

Vendange Tardives North Yuba Roussanne 2006

Vendage Tardive 100% Roussanne.

A savory late harvest wine, best paired with savory vs. sweet food.

California earthy soil profile, golden grass, tea-like tannin, Chrysanthemum bitter, candle wax. Clean Acidity, not notably sweet.

Very good late harvest savory wine, not dessert sweet.

Vendange Tardive Alsace Riesling 2010

Amazingly fresh, the diesel notes are just starting to show. For me, this is still too early to drink but that’s a matter of taste — it’s beautifully balanced — 5 months ago
