Excluding wine dinners:

2010 Windy Oaks Reserve Pinot -- very well made and a pretty wine
2003 Araujo Cabernet -- one of the finest California Cabs I've ever had
2012 Kutch Sonoma Coast -- still a bit closed, but nice
2015 Tablas Creek Cote de Tablas Blanc -- ok value wine, but had better
2012 Rhys Alpine Pinot -- very solid and one of the better Rhys pinots I've had this year
2008 Simon Bize Savigny Marconnets -- young, but a fine Savigny and no harm in opening this now
2006 Pontet Canet -- too young, but good bones
2014 A Tribute to Grace Grenache SB Highlands -- really enjoy her wines
2014 Liquid Farm White Hill Chardonnay -- good wine, but could use a bit more acid
NV Henriet-Bazin Champagne -- good sparkler for under $40

1994 Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin -- in fine form, drinking a lot younger than its age
2013 Domaine de L'Arlot Nuits St. Georges Cuvée La Gerbotte -- a very promising and already quite delicious judiciously oaked Chardonnay
2012 Domaine Vincent et Francois Jouard Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes -- oxidized
2014 Jean-Claude Lapalu Brouilly Croix des Rameaux -- I love Lapalu's style and 2014 seems to be a great vintage. Serious yet with very high drinkability
N.V. Nicolas Maillart Champagne 1er Cru Brut Platine -- perfectly nice, toasty and vinous fizz with fairly low effervescence
2012 Bernard Dugat-Py Bourgogne -- the shittiest (on the nose) wine I have had in years
2009 Tenute Sella Lessona -- simple but enjoyable
2006 Pierre Gimonnet Champagne Blanc de Blancs Brut Fleuron -- a very nice BdB that seems to be peaking early
2011 Egon Müller Scharzhofberger Riesling Kabinett -- at least 10 years too young
2014 A. et P. de Villaine Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise Les Clous Aimé -- amazingly nice Chablis-esque Chardonnay from the south

Les Journaries is younger vine than La Chav, so at least to me, is generally approachable earlier, some big vintages like 2010 excepted. I thought the 2007 was quite enjoyable now. Not at optimal drinking window but still damn fine.

2014 Sandlands Trousseau - not as good as the amazing 2013

2014 Thivin Cote de Brouilly - best vintage I've had of this but I still haven't fallen for it

2008 Fernando Remirez de Genuza Rioja Reserva - I found this somewhat international in style but still quite good

1995 La Rioja Alta Gran Reserva 890 - great bottle, quite integrated and ready with lots of life left

2005 Tempier Cabassou - Bretty and young; not a great showing

2002 Clos Mogador Priorat - fantastically fresh and almost electric; very very compelling; my woty

2010 Valentini Trebbiano d'Abruzzo - earthy, rich reductive nose; youthful, complex and elusive. Great acid and uncoiling slowly. Pedigree evident

NV Pierre Gimmonet Brut Cuvée Cuis 1er Cru - I've had bad luck with gimmonet; reads to me as harsh and a touch astringent

1998 Fisher Coach Insignia Cabernet - oth

1998 Ch Peuch Haut St Drezery Prestige - drinkable but not in great shape

95 and 96 Taittinger Comtes (95 was fantastic and favored by all over 96)

96 Billecart Cuvee Elisabeth (a beauty)

02 Billecart Nicolas (too voluptuous for the meal)

04 Raveneau Clos, Valmur and Blanchots (infanticide but with some air, the Valmur stood out)

Above wines with a really nice sushi dinner

10 Bertheau Chambolle Village (a touch disappointing in the context of producer and vintage)

10 Chantal Lescure NSG (maybe a touch spoofy but very tasty with some air)

15 Pepiere Briords (magnum - seems a touch weightier and not as good as the 14 but still nice enough)

2009 Acha Red (by Mark Herold) CA Tempranillo blend, interesting academically for the most part, only has a touch of Petite Sirah, but seems more like that than Tempranillo.

2010 Bodega del Abad Carracedo - Good Mencia from Spain, underappreciated. Hints of black tea and charcoal, should reward some aging.

2009 Biggio Hamina Deux Vert Vineyard - my first, but will not be my last. Meat and smoke and soy and caramel and while it lacks a little fruit midpalate, the start and finish are so strong you don't really care. Good wine and better yet, an interesting wine. Unique and I wish I had known about it before. Definitely want more.

2013 Dom. Cartier Touraine Cot - because why not? Not brilliant, but then again, not expensive.

2010 Dom du Pere Caboche Elisabeth Chambellan V.V. - good CdP for at least the last 30 years and glad to see it's still on point.

1999 Brown Estate Zin - aging but not fading, ripe but not obnoxious, a good Zin.

2011 Laughing Stock Blind Trust - very good wine from British Columbia. Glad to have more. What Napa used to be and what Bordeaux wishes it could be.

1996 Remírez de Ganuza Reserva - for such a clean winery, the wines don't hold. Stink bomb.

2001 Hétszölö 5P - not the best Tokaji-Aszú, but who cares? It's Tokaji-Aszú after all.

2008 Hacienda Terra d'Uro 'Uro' - crappy year but big, tannic wine that may repay aging

2011 Cetto Syrah - Mexican Syrah. And pretty good too.

2009 Bodegas El Angosto Los Almendros - blend of Garnacha, Syrah and Marselan - still really young, great producer in Valencia

2015 Fevre Chablis Champ Royaux - really good supermarket wine

2013 Damilano Marghe - ditto

2012 Ridge Santa Cruz Estate - uninspired Chardonnay, substandard Ridge

1996 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Chianti Riserva - in spite of the abuse, still drinkable. Suffered through a few weeks of 80 - 90F over the years. About 10 years past, but still has some interest.

How was this? Had a good bit of this wine and it was quite good for a long time. But it has been a while and I am curious about how it has held up.

2014 Peter Lauer Riesling Senior Faß 6... excellent
2009 Chevillon Cailles... good but young
2013 Rhys Alpine... Great but young
2004 Salon... young and out of this world!
2006 Fevre Preuses... Not PO'd and very tasty, steel and flint perceptions
2006 Roederer Starck... nice and steely when on, uneven quality from bottle to bottle
2004 Ruinart Ruinart BdB... excellent, sheer granite pinnacle perception
1996 Henriot Brut Millesime Rose... Really pretty. Salmon, crisp, hint of oxidation. Nimble playful, yum!
NV Ployez-Jaquemart Extra Brut Rose... very good when on, bottles very.
2013 Dönnhoff Oberhäuser Leistenberg Kabinett... 100 points

Add this to my list, bump the first:

2011 Coudert Clos de Le Roilette Fleurie Cuvee Tardive

Been trying to coax something out of this for two days, fairly closed and lean. In an axkward phase, was quite precocious on release. Hold.

Maureen,

I bought this because Charles had visited there this summer and raved about the wines. I thought it was excellent, but there are other Mosel producers I have liked better. Kenny liked this more than I did. Still, this is very young and is the first 2015 I have tasted, so I could like it more with time.

FYI, I got it from Phil at Bassins.

1983 Rieussec; med dark amber color, nose of caramel / brown sugar, some toffee, oxidized tropical fruit aromas. Med sweet on the palate, with vague toasted coconut and finishing with slightly oxidized fruit and nut notes. Still enjoyable but not as unctuous as previous bottle about 8 yrs ago. Drink up!

Some hits, but a lot of misses.

2003 Lenoir Chinon: Too much brett. Was enjoyable for about 5 minutes after brett blew off until wine closed up.
1988 Tollot-Beaut Savigny les Beaune 1er Cru Lavieres: Really nice. Structure has receded and fruit survived. Surprisingly silky texture.
2001 Chateau Bel-Air Pomerol: Not complex, but nice. A little tannic, but in a good spot.
1990 Fabien Coche Pommard VV: Not good. Too much acid and not much else going on. Pretty sure bottle had been reconditioned due to lack of sediment and cork condition.
2010 La Chablisiene Chablis 1er Cru Vaulorent: Not enough zing. A little too fat for my tastes in Chablis.
2014 Chidaine Montlouis Choisilles: Uninspiring.
1991 Bernard Bachelet Maranges 1er Cru Fussiere: Super weird for the first two hours – a little musty and funky in a bad way. But it became glorious after hours left open on the counter. By the end of Day 2 left open in the bottle, it was silky, fruity and lovely. Surpirsing turn of events.
1996 Bernard Morey Beaune 1er Cru Greves: Very nice. Has rounded out, without the pokey ’96 acidity.
1999 Jaboulet Cornas St. Pierre: Started off very nice, with powerful fruit, a bit of menthol (which I like) and nice structure. But fell apart as the night went on.
2004 Robert Michel Cornas Cuvee de Coteaux: Loved this. Great fruit, but also good earthy/mineral Cornas character. Has years ahead, but very, very good now. Still kicking myself for not buying the 6 bottles of the 05 I saw on HDH recently.

At release, the Bahans (now Le Clarence) '98-04 were very good QPR.
Today, it's hard to find any vintages at all under $100 sadly.. -So Your taste is correct.

Hi, Neal. It is readily enjoyable now with a bit of a decant for aeration - a crowd-pleaser of a wine; but not in an over-the-top kind of way. Good stuff.

I first tried it at the pre-dinner tasting of 2004 Pessac-Léognan of the Fête de la Fleur in 2007 (held at Smith-Haut-Lafitte). Of the pre-dinner wines, my old notes show the most positive remarks for the La Mission Haut Brion and Haut-Bailly (I arrived a little late, so all the Haut Brion was gone). Nine years later, the Haut-Bailly has lived up to its promise.

Best,

N

Hi, Nathan. It showed good typicity and a classic character. Not as stylish as the accompanying 2004 Haut-Bailly; but that's beside the point. In my view, the Bahans started out nicer than the Haut-Bailly; but, as the evening wore on, the latter blossomed while the former seemed to fade.

Best,

Jacky Truchot sold most of his vineyards after the 2005 vintage but kept one vineyard - his plot in Les Sorbes. He made and sold some wine from there in 2006. A few cases were sold by Weygandt Wines in DC (Peter Weygandt was Truchot's longtime importer). Maureen was nice enough to alert me when they had this one and one of these cases (or the remnants thereof) rests comfortably in my cellar.

The wine I had was the 2007 Premier Cru (I have corrected my previous post). It was quite good. I had one bottle a couple of years ago and was not that impressed, but this bottle was really good. I guess the earlier bottle just needed time. The current bottle was a bit young on opening, but over the course of its short life once opened it really opened up nicely. I would say the wine will likely last and in fact improve over several years, but there is no crime in opening it now.

1959 L. Cartier - Chateau Chalon: Terrible ullage, probably abused before I bought it at auction in the 1990s and … just what one would hope for. Perfect, fresh old oxidative Chateau Chalon, like a light sherry.
1994 Leasingham - Clare Valley - Shiraz 'Classic Clare': Really nasty at first, with some odd chemical notes. It came together with some air in the glass.
1993 Vietti - Barolo – Rocche: Pleasant enough but sort of boring. I’d hoped for an evolved, elegant wine from a lighter vintage. I was disappointed.
1993 Rocche di Manzoni - Barolo – Rocche: I posted on this in David Buecker’s “Death by Oak.” This was annihilated by barriques.
1994 von Kesselstadt – Josephshöfer – Spätlese: Dryer than I had expected and hoped for. I'd imagined an ethereal old Spätlese with faint caramel secondary notes and a fading caress of sweetness. But this needs some food because of the dryness. It is an excellent wine. Just not the style I was hoping for.
2002 Dom. du Closel - Savenièrres - Clos du Papillon: Oxidized. I posted on this.
1998 Lamarche - Vosne Romanée – Suchots: This was very ungiving. Some bottles have offered nice, masculine Vosne fruit. This one, drunk over a long evening, was just tough.
1999 Rizzi - Barbaresco – Fondetta: Kind of boring. Disappointing for the vintage. I think this was right before Enrico Dellapiano, son of the owner, took over as winemaker.
2005 Luis Pato - Beirras - Vinhas Velhas (red): It seemed to have a trace of oxidation at first. That blew off and it was a nice, taut wine. The baga grape always yields a lot of structure. On day 2 I picked up a little TCA.
2001 Dom. Moulin-Tacussel - Châteauneuf-du-Pape: A nice CdP in a lighter, more feminine style. Good with spaghetti and meat ragu. A little lacking in aromas, though.
