TN: 2015 Domaine Pichot Vouvray Clos Cartaud

A fresh nose of honeysuckle, green apple and mint. It is direct and super-intense. There's razor sharp cut and a finish loaded with chalky dry extract. It is squint-inducing and really good.

Re: Domaine Thomas Frères--anyone know'em?

Just looking back on my notes Joshua and a '98 Pommard was very decent, as was a '73 Volnay. I reckon your bottles should show well.

Blue fruits, purple flowers and menthol. Full and fleshy, creamy mid-palate. Layered and luscious, nice energy and balance. Utterly delicious and plenty of material upon which to age.

TN: 1995 Mauro Molino Barolo Vigna Conca

Really chocolatey at first. Breathes up to show notes of burnt fig, sweet tobacco, tar and truffle. It has a palate of sweet and savoury things and there's some sage and mint notes in the background. There is balsamic tang and tartness to the finish. It got quite a bit better with air.

The nose is pure cherry fruit to begin. Some meat and earth savoury notes join in with air. It has plenty of flavour in the mouth with some darker elements. It has chalky structure and finishes fresh and clean.

Drinking really nicely. There's some spice and plenty of citrus. It has good shape with plenty of underlying minerality. There's a touch of vanilla to the finish and it is long.

Re: A Coupla Burlotto '19's

Hi Michael, the Aves is a step up in intensity and is not a lot of extra dosh for the upgrade.

Hi John, the '18 is much more open. I reckon this '19 will be brilliant but it is denser than the '18 and quite tight at the moment.

Some smoky reduction coupled with ripe orchard fruits. The palate is rich yet direct. It has great shape in the mouth and almond butter flavours mixes it up with sappy orchard fruits. The finish is loaded with dry extract and it has length to burn.
