Ghemme ai Livelli Nebbiolo 2018

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2018 Ghemme Ai Livelli is a dense, potent wine. Black cherry, spice, leather, menthol, game and incense add to an impression of brooding intensity. This rustic, burly Ghemme offers tons of punch and character, but it is marked by slightly elevated alcohol, searing tannins and oxidative overtones. In spite of that, it’s still a very good wine, which just shows the potential here. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2024)

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1996

1996 vintage. Multiple (6) bottles tasted 1hr, 2hrs and 4 hrs after decanting. Sleek and linear. Not gratuitous and giving just yet but close. Needs another 5-7 years to absolutely ingratiate itself into your psyche/cellar/glass if you're a robot/AI or actually have patience. Sexy af. Decided and dedicated temptress throwing out just enough historic, Lalande-styled love currently to seduce completely if your patience is lacking. Total siren song. Fill those ears with wax and watch your bank account. Beware. This just may be the longest lived Lalande vintage I've ever hit. Discounted the 1996 vintage big-time initially but deffy mistaken with this specific/particular wine. Hard to locate but if you do, it's a go to. Been trying to source since tasting this vintage, without luck, since this visit. Number one on the Most Wanted BDX list currently. Pray for me. 4.4.23. — a year ago

Cros Parantoux Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2006

Couleur commençant à évoluer
Nez assez réservé puis fraise écrasée épicé j’en ai pas eu l’orange sanguine ou de la rose comme certains grand pinot noir mais superbe nez
Bouche ample mais fraîche et précise, manquant peut être d un peu de longueur pour m emporter complètement mais très beaux tanins
