Colli Orientali del Friuli Sauvignon 2017

Fun Italian outlier for our SB lunch from @Eric LaMasters noticeable depth and concentration. It unfurled slowly but I’d say it was right there with the Pape Clement and Silex for most unique wine of the day. — a year ago

Château Smith Haut Lafitte

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

This Pessac-Léognan is my favourite next to Pape Clement & not being able to afford Haut-Brion 😁 Still not cheap @ £115-£130 now, but it’s worth it as a treat 👍 It just keeps getting better & better but is already divine 😍

🏵 96 points w/ more potential

🍇 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc & 1% Petit Verdot

🍷 Opaque ruby

👃 Cracked minerals & smashed pencil lead through spiced black berry/currant, damson & blueberry in soft char-smoked oak w/ mocha grounds, gravel, liquorice lashings & a minty hinty

👄 Med+ rich dark plummy silky smooth body of gloopy blackcurrant & dark plum in chewy liquorice & creamy mocha goo w/ a mineral punch

🎯 Long dark gooey fruity plummy sticky liquorice linger w/ mocha & mineral ka-pow

Château Les Grands Chênes Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010


GL tasting Pape Clement 10/18/17. Means tall oak tree. 60 Merlot 40 cab. Three vintages. '15 Nose of black berries and palette that's straightforward with some earthiness and medium finish. 8.8. 2010 nose that's black fruit and body with hints of wood and good structure. 8.9. 2005 nose that's complex with that autumnal secondary notes of age and good structure on palate and long finish. Rewards of aging. 9.0. Roland consulting previously but more moving away from me oak. — 3 years ago

Pur Sang Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 1993

This was a special bottle for me. By far the oldest Dagueneau I’ve had. Honeyed bruised yellow pear, caramel, lychee. A marzipan brioche quality reminiscent of an older Pape Clement blanc or Haut Brion blanc. Thought provoking and absorbing. I kept going back for more. Thank you for the deep pull @Matthew Beckman. — 2 years ago

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia

Bolgheri Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

A muscular wine to be sure but with so much elegance and finesse you can't help but appreciate the nuance. To me this wine is the epitome of Bolgheri and I prefer it far more than Sassicaia. A bold chewy soil, gravel and fruit driven treat that reminds me of Pape Clement in its Graves flavor profile and density. Ready now on pop but gathers momentum in the glass. — 4 years ago
