Clos Vougeot Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2009

Du fruit noir et beaucoup d’épices sur ce nez aromatique et très élégant. La bouche est superbe, puissante mais avec des tannins de texture soyeuse, beaucoup de classe et d’élégance, belle finale de bonne longueur, tout en ayant encore beaucoup de temps au compteur.

Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Black fruit, lots of spices on the nose and palate that is superb, powerful with such a great tannins texture, class and elegance, the finish is very long and is gorgeous. Still very young. 94-95

Doug's Vineyard-Romsey Pinot Noir 2019

Tossed in to a mix of red burgs, and it stood out as a new world pino with it's cleaner fruit and "modernity" (as G puts it, less VA?). I think it's all about the structure of the wine in comparison. Josh's was definitely lighter versus the d'Eugénie and Mugneret-Gibourg, the acid perceivably more prominent (almost steely), and minerality less so (if any at all). That's not to detract from Josh's really delicious creation, it's just different.

A light wine with heaps of flavour built around a red fruit core. Reflects the vineyard well I feel, having worked with the fruits from the Newnham family (same plot?) in 2017 and briefly in 2018 - small berries that produced lightly-coloured, aromatically charged wines with minimal tannins. This was in the same vein I feel, but Josh certainly pulled a lot more subtance out of these fruit than we did at KW. He's managed to weave in spicy, earthy, herbaceous nuances, and definitely extracted more colour. Mouthwatering acidity and commendable length. Probably the best Australian pino I've had all year (not like I had much to begin with)!

@Ceccherini Cristiano Wouldn't call them rivals, but I get what you mean. Josh is quite a maverick in the region. Of course there's Place of Changing Winds, which takes things to an extreme to say the least. Michael at Bindi's at the pinnacle for me. The thoughts and history behind the wines are quite remarkable, and of course the wines themselves too. And then there's Ben and Sally at Wilimee - they're really doing great things with their 5ha plot and I couldn't recommend the wines enough. Domaine Epis is another producer making unique expressions of wine. And Josh's family winery - that Lagrein is quite smth in the right years. Oh, and there's my great friend Brian at Hunter-Gatherer. Still finding his stride with his vineyard outside Romsey but clearly has the right ideas. Hahaha. You just got me really excited about the Macedon. I do love the region ❤

@Ceccherini Cristiano Great to hear that you and the family's in a good space now. It must be beautiful. Melbourne was home for close to 11 years, and I still do think of it as our second home. For now, we're back in Malaysia. More specifically in the east (Borneo) in a city called Kuching. Hasn't been an easy two years, especially for the mind, as you said. Definitely looking brighter these days. Admittedly, i've got no idea about the wines of Calabria, let alone Pollino. Haha. That said, you're technically right in the center of wine. Can't be hard to access the great wines of Europe from where you are, and without the worry of provenance in most cases. That's a crazy task moving all your wines.

@Aaron Tan 😄😄it does sound like we share the love for the region😄😄
and i guess Australia must have a soft spot for both of us and have its wine.
You are right in saying that everything is more accessible from here and that's definitely a plus, but my real mission has always been to find the unknown and discover new reality, you know like meeting new people, new stimulation.
I don't fancy to win easy and so i am now hardly banging my head on a lot of rough wines here in the South, but that's ok...time will come for a little win i hope😂😂. Take care and cheers my friend🙏
