Re: 2017 Arterberry Maresh Chard - $89?

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.

Re: Some more wines - Rougeard, Latour a Pomerol, Lahaye, Bise...

I had the 82 Lat a Pom last year I believe and it was fine.

While I do see it continuing to hold I don’t see its evolution leading to improvement.

Not quite the depth on the midpalate (would Coates say stuffing?) to think it would improve.
