Downhill Cellars

Chateau Suduirat

1er Cru Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

This 2007 is at the end of its drinkability, but still delightful. All kinds of stone fruit and herbs with floral notes and honey. It went downhill pretty soon after opening. — a year ago


Helios Cabernet Franc 2012

1hr+ decant. Wine really changed through the course of the night. Went from floral to port to tannic. Started out nice then evolved to complex then to strange and then went downhill. I’d drink soon and be careful of decanting too long. I was at 94 and then dropped to 91, so 92.5 and rounding up :) — 3 years ago

Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair

Monopole Clos du Château Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2008

Levemente oxidada. Só não dá para ter certeza se está indo downhill ou foi um problema de storage — 3 years ago

Ultreia Saint Jacques Mencía 2016

Château La Tour du Pin

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classe Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Nicely made Saint-Emilion (75% Merlot/25% Cab Franc). Didn’t expect the wine to show as well as it did and punches well above its weight. Big and bold, this wine has great weight and depth. Finish is long and savory. Wish I had more than 2 bottles remaining. Probably at peak though doesn’t appear in danger of going downhill anytime soon. — 2 years ago

Terroir al Límit

Dits del Terra Priorat Carignane 2015

Fresh and spicy. Surprisingly this was already on the downhill on day two dispite being full bodied, young and tannic on day one. Almost Pinot Noir type of character. — 3 years ago

Jones Family Vineyard

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

This Mag needed 30 minutes to blow off the 20 years, but it started going downhill quickly compared to other 02’s . Retail purchase so who knows storage conditions, — 2 years ago

Domaine de la Vieille Julienne

Lieu-Dit Clavin Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2016

Good vintage n value for money. Chalky mineral with an essence of salty rocks. Light raspberry and abit burgundian feel. Abit of bubble gum. It is good when open and drink but very quickly it goes downhill — 3 years ago

Castel del Monte Il Falcone Riserva Red Blend 1996


Nice balanced red with ripe red fruits and forest notes, medium body but faded on finish. Might be heading downhill for a 26 year old. Went well with red sauced pasta. AA18. From Puglia and 70% Nero di Troia and 30% Montepulciano. New to me — 3 years ago
