Maison Ilan

Les Robardelles Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2012

The elusive Maison Ilan 😋🤣 '12 is better than the '11, and this really is a pretty decent bottle of Burgundy.

Domaine Méo-Camuzet

Les Chaumes Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

Baby killing to check out a bottle at the beginning. Distinct Vosne spice, star anise, cinnamon, cardamom. This would be fantastic with a bowl of Pho, ha!

Young, pretty, still very tight, the tannins grip like Velcro while still managing to come off as silk smooth after that initial lock in fades. Aside from the spices, black cherry, hint of cream, sweet tarragon, the subtlest mint, damn this is good already.

Will open another in 2024, ha!

Domaine Bertheau (Pierre et François)

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2014

Always a good qpr I think with these Bertheaus. Easy to drink, nice tart cherries, great with food.

New season

Les Saint Georges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Drinking well, textbook burg with cherry, black tea, sous bois, very young still of course, lots of development left. #rockthered #letsgocaps — a year ago

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Band aids, green peppers, raspberry, tobacco, very forward tannins still, lots of grip, but so good. Couple more decades of life I'm sure.

And do or die Caps, already in the hole 1-0

The jersey is again packed away until next season :)

Dominique Laurent

Vieilles Vignes Aux Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2014

On to the red wine! Too young but I wanted to try the first bottle of the batch for a baseline. And there's unsurprisingly oak, but Vosne spices too underneath, black cherry, hint of earth, touch of reduction...think the raw material is here, and it will get much better, just needs 20 years! #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #openthewhoopass — 7 months ago

@Billy L. yeah, I'd say if you have multiple bottles of them all, go ahead and check in. Sample them on open, but '05 probably still needs a decant, especially the GCs...it was a big year, I wouldn't be surprised if there was 200% oak on some, if not most, of those wines.

@Berg - Sounds like a plan, much appreciate your opinion, I'll post them as I "sample" & look forward to more of your Burgundy & Napa Cabernet posts! Thx again, Cheers!


Look forward to following your progress!🍷

La Fussière Maranges 1er Cru 1993

Probably the best bottle I've had of this out of 7 so far. What it should be I think, funk, sassafras, hint of tart cherry, vague hint of flowers in the first glasses. Changes fast with some air. #rockthered #capsflyers #letsgocaps — 10 months ago
