Sarah's Blend 2001

20 years old! Unbelievable how fresh this was. It has aged remarkably well and had a great deal of complexity. Bravo to this now defunct wine making duo! — 12 days ago

Clos De La Roilette

Clos de la Roilette Griffe du Marquis Fleurie Gamay 2018

Beautiful cherry and fruitwood aroma. Lipstick and liquer. Some herbs- black tea, bay, oregano. Super perfumed. Elderberry. Purple fruited with lovely prickly tannins on the finish. Absolutely has the structure to age 10+ years.

Day three and this is just so earthy and beautiful and completely vibrant. Up to 9.5. Love.

Babe yeah, I don't look at these for at least 6-8+, but serious juice.

@Severn Goodwin Me too, other than to assess how much I want to buy. ‘18 is surprisingly generous and accessible in its youth. Now we’re on day three and it’s still getting better, so I’ll definitely be stashing away a case!

Domaine Marquis d'Angerville

Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2016

Producentens instegare. Öppnar starkt i glaset. Parfymerad och inbjudande. Rosor, stora mogna bär, nougat, örter och mineral. God att dricka nu, nästan så den dalade lite efter ett tag. — 20 days ago

Château Marquis d'Alesme

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

First bottle of a case of this 2016 Ch. Marquis d’Alesme, a modern Margaux property run by the Perrodo family with an all-female team in charge. I’ve been excited to try it.

Safe to say, it’s young. Quite austere at the moment, but incredibly promising. There are intense and angular aromas of cedar, sandalwood, tomato leaf, blackberry, blackcurrant, with the palate showing a similarly hunkered-down profile. All the fruit seems to be kept in reserve for now, behind a convincing body of coarse tannin, a graphite edge and a gorgeous vanilla note through the finish.

Very promising stuff, this should be left for at least another 2/3 years and keep for many more thereafter. A gorgeous wine in the making.

Château La Tour de Mons

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

9.0

Holding up very well. Not going to further evolve to a better place, tho.
Sage and licorice notes on the nose, give way to sandalwood and earth on the palate. All the characteristics that wifey chooses to avoid. You need the right mindset to approach this.

Château Tour Leognan

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2019

Light straw color. Aromas of pineapple and lemon. On the palate there’s pineapple, nectarine, white peach, lemon, and clean minerals. Finishes light and dry. Really delicious. — 2 days ago

Maison de Grand Esprit

Cuvée Grand Esprit Marquis de La Mystèriale Champagne Blend

JKT
9.1

Classic nose and palate of grand houses Champagne at half the price. Yeah, brioche straw balanced lively acidic yet creamy with long pleasant finish. Stood up to Evan’s spicy Mexican rice. Inauguration drink so half bottle gone! Sure sign of a good Champagne: still excellent the second day sealed with Champagne closure and bubbles mostly gone. JR mystery offer — 5 days ago

Château Léoville-Las Cases

Clos du Marquis Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2002

At first there is forest soil, mushrooms, then cedar, tobacco, and there is still fruit with black currant mainly. This is rather complex. At first the palate was a little bit harsh around the edges, with pointy tannins and a brutal mouthfeel. Getting it 3 hours of air helped the wine settle and now there is a velvety mouthfeel, tannins roll in mid palate and there is a bright fruit note all along. It's not powerful, but that might be a vintage thing, but it's subtle and complex. A long finish with fruit and a bit of a salty, meaty note comes up in the end. Not the best clos du marquis I've had but a good, solid wine in an off vintage. — 8 days ago

So much to enjoy: spicy, bright, brambly, juicy red fruit that demands a glass kept close at hand. — 7 days ago
