Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The 3rd and final Corton Rouge tasted blind. Wonderful fragrance and palate intensity - obvious whole bunch in the ferment. A bit too much for some tasters in the group. 2016 is a great year for Corton Rouge and in relative terms quite good value. It does not have the head spinning prices one sees in Vosne Romanee, Musigny or Chambertin. — 3 days ago

@Bob McDonald Bob, help me out, some people have a check mark by their name, some have a crown. You gave both, what's it all mean?

@Dennis P. @Delectable Dennis Delectable would be best to answer this. I know one of them means I pay a small monthly fee to Delectable to avoid having ads running on the feed. The other may mean the number of posts I have made? It’s a great app and I use it pretty much every day.

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2006

Wedged in between the monumental 2005 and 2007 this wine is more delicate but again a true Rayas. Perfect balance, strong kirsch tones and this endless perfume which comes with a sexy Rayas. Reynaud and Bonneau two opposite wines, both great, for me forget all the rest in red chateauneuf. What a joy and privilege to be allowed to drink this. — a year ago

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2007

Unique, like nothing else in Chateauneuf and in 2007. Bonneau’s touch is all over this wine, superbly constructed, not overripe despite being an 07, beautiful blend of primary and secondary aromatics. 🙏
This wine concluded yet another terrific night at l’Oustalet. Congrats to their team for a much deserved 1* Michelin Star !

Réserve des Célestins Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1998

Dark purple in the glass. Would never have guessed this is over 20 years old. Even after a 2.5 hour decant this is still quite youthful. Tons of dark fruit with incredible balance and acidity with a beautiful long finish. What a fun wine with some excellent pork roast on Christmas. — a month ago

Domaine de Pignan

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2000

100% Grenache. Sweet red cherry fruit, garrigue and Provençal herbs. Second best to the ‘88 Bonneau Beurrier for me in this tasting. — 10 months ago

Domaine Leflaive

Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru Chardonnay 1992

Tasted blind. Medium gold and like motor oil in the glass. Notes of lemon, lime blossoms, white stone and a little vanilla. Very glycerol in the mouth. Great balance of acidity against the fatness of the fruit. Long finish. I guessed 90 Bonneau du Martray CC. — a year ago
