Re: 1945 Vintage but New Looking Bottle

Echoing what others said about old wine new bottles - common for Madeira, Rivesaltes, PX Sherry, Colheita, others.

About 7 years ago I had 1945 Cazes Rivesaltes which looked like this - new bottle - but tasted very authentic.

Not saying this is but the new bottle is totally understandable.

Re: Favorite Vintners in Savoy?

Some years ago went through some stunning Altesse from Gilles Berlioz.

Have been told he no longer exports to the US (at least I can't find it in Virginia).

A correct bottle of the 1947 should be quite a lot richer and more muscular than the 1981, and look like this:

Re: Older Bordeauxs 50+ years vs newer <50 year old?

yep, people with perfect provenance '47 First Growth sell them through Winebid. That's the ticket! I get the take on the perfect provenance claim, but it is possible that we’ll-stored old wines get placed on WineBid. It could be considered, as well: do the best placements get snapped up by insiders?

I appreciate the Maresh Maresh Chard.

Have some 16 but haven’t tried it yet.

Interesting to know about the Wente-only clones for 16 and 17 - same for the 18?

Aside from the extra sulphur, anything to add about the elevage of the 16?

BTW perfectly fine rationale for the pricing.

Re: TN: 1999 Ridge Lytton Springs (USA, California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley)

FYI I have opened at least four bottles of the 1995 Lytton Springs in the past year and it is not showing as well as David describes the 1999.

Plenty drinkable and certainly fruit, tea, wood, and tertiary qualities but also tiring overall and thin on the mid palate.
