Well done Blake.

Several years ago I purchased a parcel of 1943's that had badly damaged labels but the fill levels were good. Every one of them was splendid.

TN: 2012 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

This is wild and unadulterated. There are plant matter things and gamey meat and musk. It has a core of intense, sweet cherry. It is velvety and deep, with a real savoury edge. There's no artifice and it is engaging and very long. Still supremely youthful.

TN: 1987 Louis Jadot Aloxe-Corton

Tertiary notes of decaying leaves and coffee. It has some vinous sweetness and Indian spices too. There's still some muscle to the back-end. It is not particularly deep or long but is engaging and thoroughly satisfying.

Expressive from the word go. Perfectly ripe white peach fruit is trimmed with spice. There are honeysuckle notes too. It is unctuous in the mouth, with good flesh and excellent underlying minerally detail.

This bottle was in excellent condition. There's a fresh nose of spruce, black earth, chalk and berries. It is compact and sinewy in the mouth, with nice depth of fruit and good minerally detail. It finishes with excellent cut and loads of savoury nuance.

Re: TN: 1999 Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Rouge

Nice to see all those 1980's you have been drinking William. A somewhat forgotten vintage that seems to be right in the zone now.

This '99 Mouches is usually highly-perfumed and I suspect my remaining bottles will show a lot better than this one.

From half bottle, this was let down somewhat by the cork. It was deep and dense but the ethereal qualities of the wine were planed off by some nutty oxidation. At its core is luscious cherry fruit. It has some earthy development and is very long.
