Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

Much better compared to the ‘98 it shared the table with. Much more lively...black peppercorn, tar, bay leaf, rose petal and a density in the middle without being too heavy. Tart red and black fruits all over the entry and finish. Still on the upward trajectory. I called this CdP.

This '08 took about 45min to blow off an unusual bit of sulfur and redux but then was very good in a sharp group.

Does Barolo get much better than this? Second day and this wine is just unbelievable. Power, detail, and elegance.

Showing oak and copious tannins. No doubt it's Nebbiolo but a bit closed up. Was opened 24 hrs.

A little closed on the nose, but amazing burgundian purity, elegance and complexity. Should keep for quite a few more years. Beautiful.

Dark yet refined with a nose of black and red fruits with savory herbs. On the palate, it is classic to the core and expands across the palate. Simply fabulous and utterly classic. This is a wine I will put in my cellarm
