Domaine Armand Rousseau

Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Wine #7 in this bracket. My blind tasting notes - similar to #6 but lighter in colour and nose. ( As it later turned out they were both Armand Rousseau wines but I would not have expected Chambertin to be slightly lighter in colour than the Ruchottes). Again palate staining spicy intensity with a long future assured. Brilliant. — a year ago

Lillian Winery

California Dundee Syrah 2016

Technically, this is the Gold Series #6 from Bien Nacido. It was bottled separately from the #5 White Hawk because it was so unique. This tasted like a great wine from Cornas. Dark ripe fruit, iron and white pepper. 94+ @Delectable Wine — 2 months ago

Castello di Ama

Vigneto San Lorenzo Chianti Classico Sangiovese Blend 2010

Extremely savoury on nose and palate but is there ANY fruit? Medium bodied with earthy cherry notes finishing with sandy drying tannins. Similar notes to 156 weeks ago. Starting to come together after 9 years but to be honest it has not lived up to its #6 wine for 2014 with Wine Spectator. I have about 4 left so its progress will be interesting. — a year ago

Wine #6. This was a fun wine. 375ml so a little bit for everyone. I don’t get the chance to drink too many 30 year old Cabs. This was fun and good! — a year ago

"Little Wine" #6 Syrah

Completely unique. @Fraser McKinley has said that he prefers these Little Wines in their youth. It’s been a year almost since I last had #6 and I think the year has done wonders. It just feels even more interesting and integrated than last time. The nose completely blows you away on opening. The finish is extremely long. A triumph. — a year ago

Great to hear @TheSkip and lovely to see it opening nicely. My drinking windows are clearly pretty timid 😂
