Fattoria dei Barbi (Colombini)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

Scott Barber
9.1

Classic styled Brunello. Tart dried cherry, with leather and licorice. Pale translucent red with massive tannin and acidity. Thought it was Barolo. 🤷‍♂️ #blindtasting #brunello #Barbi — 5 months ago

Tradition Alsace AOC Gewürztraminer 2016

Scott Barber
8.8

Explosive rose petal aromatics with lots of spice. Significantly off dry on the palate was surprising. Good fresh acid and lot to much bitterness. #alsace #gewürtztraminer #blindtasting — 5 months ago

Yangarra Estate

McLaren Vale Old Vine Grenache 2014

Scott Barber
9.1

Excellent typical example of good Aussie Grenache. First impression is 'red Clare Riesling'. Clean with ripe red fruit (strawberry fruit roll-out). White pepper with a little heart. Best with a little chill. #blindtasting #australianwinetasting #yangarra #Grenache — 5 months ago

Alzinger

Loibner Frauenweingarten Federspiel Grüner Veltliner 2016

Scott Barber
9.0

Excellent Claus federspiel. Bright citrus and green apple but less fruit than savory. Bright acid, stony mineral and a raspy texture.

Domaine de Montesquiou

Cuvade Préciouse Jurançon Sec 2014

MICHAEL COOPER
9.0

I agree with @Andrew Cooper it has intense almost chewable flavor and very refreshing and balanced acidity. There's a sensation of #minerality that when #blindtasting could almost lead you to think it's a Riesling from Alsace. 14 alcohol. #jurançon — 2 years ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

Scott Barber
9.0

Ripe with lush fruit but underlying minerality steers it back to Bdx. The longer it sits in the glass the more French it gets. Nice to taste the Rouge for a change. #blindtasting #carbonnieux #bordeaux — 5 months ago

La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Scott Barber
9.2

Very pure grapefruit with chalky minerality. Barely noticeable pyrazines. So much fruit I almost thought it was NZ. #sancerre #blindtasting #alphonsemellot — 5 months ago

Gia Opera Pia Barolo Nebbiolo 1955

Vintage 1955 - we had a great vertical tasting ot this #piemonte #nebbioli wine , Thanks to Eric. This 1955 was absolutely awesome to me: spicy cake, caramel, apple syrup. Velvet taste, good concentration and excellent balance. A marvelous experience to taste history. / eg all tasted blind. #blindtasting — 8 months ago
