Le Rocche del Falletto Riserva Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Amazing wine. While of course still young, the magic of the red label from the master in ‘07 was in full form tonight wafting a captivating bouquet of Christmas spices, rose pedals, licorice, worn leather and a menthol freshness. A stunning perfume. The palate shows incredible richness and density yet without weight nor heat, and the most luxurious of textures that wraps around the mouth before its multi-minute finish. Wow. — 2 days ago

Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2007

Popped and poured, no formal notes. This bottle of 2007 Giacosa Barolo Falletto Serralunga d’Alba was served alongside a number of absolute bangers and was probably my wine of the night. I would describe it as vinous now and it has so much personality. Unmistakably Serralunga: gorgeously perfumed, beautifully dark fruited and fabulously structured. This is the third 2007 I’ve had from multiple producers in the last 18 months and I gotta say, I think the 2007 Barolo vintage is in a really great spot right now. Definitely a vintage I’ve slept on. For this particular bottle, drink now though I expect it will live through 2037. — 4 months ago

Santo Stefano Di Neive Barbaresco Nebbiolo 2005

Absolutely gorgeous tonight, with red label stardom, continuing to get better and better in the decanter wafting waves of roses, black cherries, exotic spices and tea leaves. It has immense richness but also so fresh and detailed. There is incredible density yet without weight. An amazing combination of power and elegance. — a month ago

Vieilles Vignes La Combe d'Orveaux Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2017

I reckon BH’s notes on this are pretty spot on for my experience (expect the part on the Noirots), so here it is:

“Once again, there is a subtle though not invisible application of wood that still easily allows the airy, cool and restrained aromas of various red berries, and in particular cherry, floral and a mildly exotic whiff of dried orange peel. The energetic and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors are much finer if less powerful than those of the Noirots while display notably more minerality as well on the compact, serious and built-to-age finale. This is a wine of finesse and refinement but the flavor authority is impressive as is the tannic spine.”

WOTN for most I believe. Showed well with air, but clearly some tightness at the start. Loved the energy here. Very promising!
