Domaine François Cotat

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Nez riche avec une forte impression sucrée que l’on retrouve en bouche aussi, gras, rond avec un peu d’acidité, finale avec de l’alcool et comme un sucre résiduel, 89. Clairement identifié comme Cotat.

Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Nose with strong sugar and sweetness impression that we find on the round and fairly fat palate, a little bit of acidity to balnce it but a finish with some alcool and residual sugar, clearly identified as F. Cotat. 88-89

Trockenbeerenauslese White Blend 2017

I am seriously questioning the decision to put this under screw cap. The reduction never quite disappeared from the nose, but the palate was excellent after about 20 min. I don't know if time can do much for it. — 2 years ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

2000 vintage. Decanted and tasted over the course of 1.5 hours. Expected amount of sed. Chunky, unresolved nose. Medium body. Still too youthful. Would try to give it another 7-10 years if possible. Initial tree branches/greenery dipping into morning fresh water morphed into classic graphite/lead pencil after 45 mins in the decanter. There was a slight metallic streak on the finish that appeared about 20 minutes in and still hadn't dissipated after 1.5 hours. More nimble than the og bad boys from this estate ('86, '88, '89, '90) and a bit less weighty. Mostly positives along with a few (mostly) minor quibblings. A ways to go, tho, before hitting the summit this estate established four decades ago. 9.24.23. — 5 months ago

Ridge Vineyards

Estate Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

Very elegant cab blend (88% cab), combining grapes from several vines in Monte Bello. High tannins and lot of potential to age. Notes of plum and cherry, blackberry and forest floor. After opening the aromas are very strong and consistent, a delicious Cabernet. — 2 years ago

Charles Krug

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

88% Cabernet Sauvignon (balance made up of other Bordeaux varietals). Estate grown. Aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry/berry, black currant, blueberry and dark chocolate. Hints of black licorice and blood. Big structure and just a bit tight. Extremely long finish. — 2 years ago

Süßes Gold Selection Beerenauslese Trocken White Blend 2017

Well this was an excellent choice! Couldn’t decide on dessert and wine so opted to combine them into one. Didn’t take a sip for a good five minutes as I was too engrossed in the nose. Blossom and citrus and sweet tangerine. All sorts of lusciousness and concentration and sweetness but finishes clean and lingering. What a delight to wrap up the night. — a year ago
