Time to treat ourselves. Open a precious bottle

#1 Post by robert creth » March 12th, 2020, 10:09 am

During these days of uncertainty, now may be time to crack open something that has been held back. I have put my last bottle of Ultramarine 2011 Rose in the fridge for tonight’s dinner. Just looking for a distraction. Anyone else?

I think this is a fantastic idea. Was thinking that when I popped a 1995 Joguet last night, and perhaps tonight, go big.

Opened a 2011 Backus last weekend. Champagne is already free flowing daily for the past month.

Perhaps something good this weekend to cheer myself up.

Excellent idea indeed. Having burgers (Wahlburger patties, if you have to know) tonight so will consider opening a high end bottle to treat ourselves.

This occurred to me this am when getting ready for work. Mine won't be super high end but a nice wine never the less: 2013 Hyde Estate vineyard chardonnay. Hyde has been doing their own wines for a while now after mainly selling fruit to the likes of Kistler and Patz/Hall.

I’ve just brought home aged bottles from Mugnier, Fourrier, Clos Saint Jean, SQN, and more from the off-site cellar. We bought these wines to drink, and the next few weeks look ideal.

Cheers to you all!

2003 Quilceda Creek tonight...notes of violets, dark fruits, roasted fennel; silky texture with incredible balance and depth; good focus on the long and savory finish. Our county is more or less shut down for the next two weeks, so we are planning to open a treasure to enjoy every night.

Stay safe!

We are having a dinner party this weekend and I asked one of the invitees to blind me from my cellar, anything is game. Hopefully he opens some good stuff, if not, I will be opening MacDonald, some champagne, and ‘67 or ‘71 Barolo in the next few weeks.

Well I stood up a 1999 Potel Gaudichots to open for a friend who was supposed to be coming down from NY for the weekend. But he bailed on me so no reason to open it. Or rather no one to drink it with. 😡

You can drink it by yourself. Just do it over two days so you do not feel guilty.

Thanks, David. Yes just got a bunch in so was tempted to try it. No notes here or on CT. Paired with grilled pork loin, some really fat and juicy asparagus, finished off on the grilled, and charred corn salsa. The 2006 JG is really solid, not at the level of 2003, 01 or the mid-90s, but I do like that it shows far less oak than the 09. This is pretty classic Cab-based claret. A Paulliac nose of cassis, smoke and pencil. Meaty on the palate, dense and layered but not heavy. Still youthful but some notes of dry earth, leather, tobacco and charcoal arise. A little chewy but not unexpected given the vintage and youth. Tannins chalky and just a tad dry on the finish, were I to quibble, the only detractor.

I am thinking that out of my decent sized collection, due to the scary uncertainty of CoronaVirus and that the enire world has come to a standstill, will open a unicorn wine that I was fortunate enough, to have snagged at Troquet's summer sale. There was only a bottle or two at retail a few years back, and I am pretty doubtful I will ever find it again.
To avoid further suspense, the wine was a 1974 Ingleneook, The wine was so youthful whwn we had it at a small oflline that it floored me. I have a sole bottle and am praying that it has been treated well, but I have no idea what this particular bottle will taste like. If it sucks, we move on to a serious Champagne, probably an 08 Dom, or 08 Cristal, as they are both stunning wines. The Dom in particular shows amazingly well for such a young wine. Fortunately I bought several btls, and will age a few, for a dozen or more years, when I cannot even imagine how good they will be.

Had the same idea myself. I have an '02 Comtesse Pichon-Lalande scheduled for this evening and either an '83 Dr. Bartolet Volnay Clos de la Barre or an '08 Dom for next Saturday.

By no means a special bottle, but I’m making a Chana Massala tonight. Instead of chickpeas I’m using chickpea pasta. Opening a basic Muscadet with it, which is a fantastic pairing.

I've discovered that the wines my wife keep going back to pour more of are almost always well-made and younger red Burgundy. With that in mind, we opened a 2016 Cathiard Vosne Romanee. It disappeared far to quickly, a wonderful and approachable drink. I hope everyone enjoys a bottle soon as much as we enjoyed ours.

Standing on the counter is a mini vertical of Philip Togni 1993, 1994 and 1997 which I was planning to serve at lunch last Friday. Instead we are going to end up having to drink them alone over the next week.

Alan, thanks for the note on the '05 Carnot, as I'm sitting on a few and haven't opened any yet.

Tonight, our local Pi Pizzeria (home of the country's best Chicago-style deep dish pizza, right here in St. Louis) has their annual Pi Day special so while not a "precious unicorn" I've opened a suitable and hopefully very nice one - 2001 Ciacci Pianrosso. Opening taste - ready to rock but maybe a bit burly and overripe for my tastes, as Ciacci can be (stated alc was 14,6, IIRC). Standing open now, will decant when I order the pies. Even if not my ideal, should be very fine.

Love this idea and decided to go "off the board" with a (hopefully inaugural) Brandy from Jamie Kutch.

This 2013 Brandy was a recent offering from Kutch and it really hits the spot tonight. Lush and flavorful (even a but jammy) the slight bite warms the soul. Rumor has it the unique alcohol distillation protects you from the SARS-Cov-2 virus and who am I to question it?

Drink well tonight friends.

Cheers!

1982 La Lagune - top shoulder fill, corked soaked and crumbly, wine sherry liked and seems to have been heat damaged (picked a few of these us a couple years ago .... :(. )

1998 Client ... much better condition (this I bought new and have been cellaring (when my '00 and onwards wines are ready my cellar will be much more trustworthy ...) this is a nice wine starting to show some secondary characteristics. Enjoyable and glad I have a couple left

Love this idea! I'll step things up, but tonight was...

2016 Domaine Coursodon "La Sensonne" Saint-Joseph - great wine, intensely dark, lovely meat/game notes, soft tannins, and a great finish.
