La Mascota Mendoza Cabernet Franc

I love a 100% Cab Franc; however, maybe this one needs to age more? It’s good, but not great. Coates my palate but not with fruit, nice color, medium body, just lacking in fruit. — 4 months ago

@Dawn E. Thanks my friend! I’m good, it wasn’t that close to my part of town but still got lots of rain and wind!

Bourgogne Chardonnay 2018

Pop and pour. Far and away my favorite rendition of this wine so far, if this bottle is representive. On the nose, only the slightest hint of struck match, then waves of lemon, lime, soft vanilla, loads of minerality. On the palate: this just absolutely coates the palate with waves of lemon and soft wet stone, then the acidity kicks in to give this some drive as the lime and vanilla join the party, and then it just lingers and ever so slowly dissipates. Unbelievably good for a bourg blanc. — a year ago

@Aravind A I have some Premier Cru Les Perrieres and Tete du Clos. Looking forward to them with suitable cellaring time after reading this.

Plymouth Navy Strength Gin

Pretty great. The one that turned me on to navy strength gins. Good in martins or with soda. Great with a splash of water, but really shows it’s colors straight out of the (cold) bottle. Juniper, orange, thyme, a little sweetness. — 4 years ago

Domaine Billard-Gonnet

Chaponnières Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir

On Clive Coates recommendation of Pommard vineyard specifically for this producer purchased from Benchmark Wine Group received February 2020 drank April 2020. Fruit still accessible but completely integrated into the fully electric energy that this wine has become. Aromatics are beguiling and potent. Finish seems to go on for minutes. So much energy. Concentration of fruit in perfect harmony. Ready to go now and still could probably hold and evolve for a bit longer I suspect. The energy is unreal. — 2 years ago

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti (DRC)

Romanée-Conti Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2016

The commune we have all been waiting for - Vosne Romanee. The first of 6 Grand Crus tasted blind. In 2 of the 3 previous tastings the first wine in this group has been the DRC RC and when I sampled the breathtaking quality of this wine I was thinking they have done it again. A couple of experts in the group felt the 2 DRC wines were at #1 and #4 This proved to be correct. My notes - Perfume of violets, pepper and Asian Spices. A perfect palate of both feminine charm and latent power ... unbelievable. The La Tache usually shows as more voluptuous in these tastings but not in 2016. I normally don’t have this much left in my glass after the wine has been identified so this was quite a luxury. Just wonderful. As Clive Coates MW said - the yardstick with which to judge all other Burgundies. It is easy to think with the 1000 year history, and the stone cross that there is something spiritual and other worldly about this wine. The consensus from all 12 tasters was that this was the best of the Vosne Romanee tasting and therefore of the whole 34 Grand Crus tasted. Only 440 dozen produced for the world. — 2 years ago

@Mike R Yes Mike, these group tastings are the way to go rather than forking out at best $8000AUD for a bottle and hoping you can live another 20 years to enjoy at its peak 😀🍷
