Birthday celebration for @Cody Uzzel at Lucio’s with a bunch of friends. All wines (except sparklers) tasted blind.
This was a nice treat and was served as the introductory red for the evening. Plump, round, gamey, savory, and bursting with flavor. Nice profile that only became more refined as time passed. — 2 days ago
Hugely awesome nose. Big raspberry, cherry, huge mineral core and just awesome fruit and density on the nose. Palate is big, grippy and ripe with wonderful presence and lovely length. Juicy and wonderfully textured but also young as Ledy’s wines needs 5-7 years to really shine. But it’s great and it’s all there. — 9 days ago
Wow. So much for the Lombard can’t be drunk for 10 years thing. Mos def will improve over time but you can see the brilliance today. Earthy nose. Some mushroom. Palate is really an elegant version of POmmard. You have the blackberry fruit for sure. And some licorice. But they are balanced and it has nice acidity. The blackberries are more picked off the vine in the wild kind then the dense knock your head off kind. This wine has upside from this score as it ages. High floor given the balance and structure. Bought from fass selections. .... as this opens some spice. ... as this opens nose is getting some dark lilacs. Palate density is more apparent. Still elegant. Internal aromatics are this dense penetrating spicy live blackberry thing. Like inhaling a blackberry bush in the forest. Finish is a bit tight but has a kiss of chocolate. Wow. ... after 3 hours stunning freshness. — 2 days ago
Tour d’Argent. Medium gold. Heavy. A stark contrast in color and nose to the 89 Dauvissat. Fine grained acidity develops with air, producing notes of apricot, river stone, minerals, sweet fruit and some spice. Whereas this started strong and maintained its performance all day, the Dauvissat grew in power. Fun to contrast the two. 99 Coche across the portfolio has shown to be amazing. — 2 days ago
