Castiglione Barolo Nebbiolo 2016

The post COVID slump buster. Classic Barolo profile - cherries, dried rose, deep tannins. Tight on day 1. But love that I can have a glass, recork bottle and know it’ll taste even better the next day. — 7 days ago

Opened this yesterday but forgot to post it. Day 2 has some background earthiness but not a ton and a lot of cherry fruit. Really nice bottle — 21 days ago

Domaine de la Roseraie

Grands Vins de Bourgogne Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1947

Poured blind. Nose of cabernet sauvignon. Estate was located in Grignan, ie current CdR orbit (but post-war labeling hilarity / historical reference to classical Kingdom of Burgundy with capital at Arles?). Fascinating, dazzling, unexplainable. Color guesses ran ‘70s (totally clear rim, some super thin hint of browning, but still very pure dark core running almost to the edge before). Great length, but again blind we all called cabernet nose for the minty, cedary character. Body maybe suggested some cinsault, but we were all way off mark served blind. Buy at auction if ever spotted! — 13 days ago
