Tasty, but a tad flat. Lemons and green apples. — 2 days ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Aromas of Tobacco and Cedar, a little manure and unfortunately a tiny amount of wet cardboard/cork taint. The 2004 was 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc so I presume this 2003 - a very warm year - was similar. Medium weight - more savoury than fruit driven at this age. Jancis Robinson had a tasting of 2003 Bordeaux a while ago and with a few exceptions said Drink Up. L’Evangile has 34 acres and is a neighbour of Cheval Blanc. Footnote: I notice the blend from Vinous was 79/21 Merlot/Cabernet Franc for 2003. — 5 months ago

Tolpuddle Vineyard

Coal River Valley Pinot Noir 2012

A lovely aromatic perfume showing cherry and some stemmy characters but more fruit driven than gamey earthy notes. A medium + intensity palate - supple and smooth. Not built for extended cellaring. A delicious wine and since 2012 has put Tasmanian Pinot on the International stage being a favourite of Jancis Robinson. Owned by Shaw and Smith and vinified in the Adelaide Hills would you believe. I was talking to the Tolpuddle viticulturist in Launceston last Saturday who said it takes only 24 hours for the grapes to get from the Coal River in Tasmania in refrigerated containers, by truck and ship to the winery in Adelaide Hills South Australia. They have found the cooling of the grapes has added to the quality of the wine. Suckling has just given the 2017 vintage 99 points - Good Luck getting a bottle when it is released in mid September!! Drank my last bottle 45 weeks later on 13th June 2019 and it was amazing. At its peak. Perfect balance of whole bunch influence, restrained oak and savoury red fruits. An annual purchase for me and 96 points on this latest tasting. — a year ago

Hattingley Valley

Classic Reserve English Sparkling Wine

Founded in 2008 by Simon and Nicola Robinson, Hattingley Valley is located in Hampshire, England and their estate vineyard is set on chalky soils. The ‘Classic Reserve’ is a blend of several vintage wines (18% reserve wines) and opens with biscuit aromas with lemon zest and shades of salted Marcona almond. The palate unveils a lovely mouthfeel as brisk acidity and salinity races through pear, wet stone and kumquat flavors. Drink 2019-2025- 90

Moss Wood

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

From Magnum. Had been decanted for about an hour and s half. Quite stinky which largely blew off to reveal leafy herbaceous characters with mint. Just medium bodied but such good balance and harmony. At that stage of just “damn good claret “ with nothing in particular standing out. A few years ago it was stunning and more powerful. Jancis Robinson still scores on the old 20 points score and gave this wine 19 points, a score generally reserved for 1st Growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundy. Great wine but time to drink it. — 8 months ago
