Re: 2010 Guion Cuvee Prestige in a nice state

I buy both producers. I have case bought Guion in good vintages like 2005, 2009, 2010, and 2014. However, I buy all Baudry cuvees with the exception of Granges in every vintage, and I have been buying deep in most vintages with the exception of 2011, and 2013. These are all great wines.

TN: 2011 Baudry Chinon La Croix Boissee (updated with 2011 Grezeaux note)

In regards to the 2007 Croix Boisee, I believe this was an early drinking vintage for this particular cuvee, which yes is typically always a deep cellar candidate. I bought less from that vintage, and thought the wines good but not great in 2007.

Top 5 Chianti Classicos?

the 2013 Monteraponi Chianti Classico wines were marvelous. I wish I could get more of that vintage.

I must admit I am the most excited about the 2013 Castell'in Villa Chianti Classico wines. I hope you import these in magnum format. I also am excited about the 2010 Riserva's.
