Philippe Rossignol

Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir 2015

Raspberry, porcini, classic Gevrey “fishiness”. Dark, commanding and intense. Loaded with the stuffing that separates the best ‘15s from other 21st century vintages. #philipperossignol #gevreychambertin #vieillesvignes — a year ago

Domaine de Marcoux

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1990

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Med concentration with garnet-orange core and orange rim with some cloudiness. Med + intensity and complexity. Roasted orange peel, sweet and mature red fruit, spice, dried herbs, dried red flowers, saw dust, and dried mushroom. The structure was still intact with high abv, med + tannin, and med acid. The notes on the palate were similar except for more candied. Tension lies with the tannin. The balance was great. Drink now but this could go a few more years. #domainedemarcoux #vieillesvignes #chateauneufdupape #rhonevalley #grenache #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago

Château Lassalle

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Vintage 2014 - crimson rim, very dark colour, very young and less accessible than other Bordeaux I tasted from 14. There are promising hints of cherries in the smell, laurel, leather-tones and a hint of chocolate and mocca. Powerfull in taste. Partly made of 'vieilles vignes' and one can taste this. Good concentration. Promising domain. #bordeaux #graves #vieillesvignes #cabernetsauvignon #merlot — 2 years ago

Domaine de la Janasse

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2000

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

From #magnum. A phenomenal #chateauneufdupape showing incredible concentration, complexity, and structure. This wine will be able to age very well. Tasted again after decanted a third time the next night and it had only gotten better. #domainedelajanasse #vieillesvignes #grenache #rhonevalley — 4 years ago

Château Génot-Boulanger

Vieilles Vignes Savigny-lès-Beaune Chardonnay 2010

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

Very impressive. Great concentration with an intense and complex nose driven by ripe fruit, oak, and secondary aromas. The palate was rich and complex. Perfectly balanced with precise acid and tension. Great length. #chateaugenotboulanger #savignylesbeaune #blanc #cotedebeaune #chardonnay #vieillesvignes #burgundy #ctbucklinwine a — 3 years ago

Domaine de Marcoux

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2001

Charles (Chad) Bucklin

A very tight wine that needs more time. Great intensity on the nose with ripe red and blue fruit with pretty floral notes. Complexity is hiding behind a very firm structure. A wine to be excited about for the future. #domainedemarcoux #chateauneufdupape #vieillesvignes #grenache #ctbucklinwine — 4 years ago
