Friday night but who’s counting?

1985 Bonneau du Martray Corton-Charlemagne
Bottle in beautiful shape with a lovely light gold color; surprisingly tight on open; decanted and kept near cellar temp; intensely smoky, brothy, and mushroomy on the nose - both slightly dirty truffles and clean white champignons; then a broad, gracious palate with rich lemon curd supported by gentle waves of acidity and a pronounced mineral savor that kicks in towards the long finish; admirably taut and regal and not at all big or blowsy, this is hugely gratifying to drink and has a long life ahead of it - I’d actually suggest waiting a couple years if in pristine condition; very good

1997 Dominus
Big, lush, gloriously sweet black and purple fruit that is neither overripe nor overtly alcoholic; good amount of supporting structure that doesn't upstage the fruit but rather holds it up and gives it shape; a savory, leathery finish to remind you of the wine's intellectual roots in Bordeaux; drinking a point and very much in the top echelon of Dominus vintages for us (alongside 1991 and 2001); very good minus

2018 Domaine Pélaquié CdR Blanc. Flavorful and satisfying. Redolent of pétanque and plane trees. < $15

2013 Paumonok Ltd Edition Petit Verdot, Apollo Drive Vyd, North Forth, Long Island. Only made in select vintages as a 100% varietal..This is the 5th edition, 172 cases....I remember drinking one of the earlier versions of their varietal Petit Verdots with Charles a number of years ago and it was hard as a rock..I thought it wd never open..What do I know?? It sold out and I hear that the wine was drinking quite nicely 10 yrs down the road. This one seemed more open for business when tasted with Charles when we had a wine tasting for my birthday at the winery..The ever charming and affable Charles Massoud said it was 5 year wine..It is drinking quite well, 6 yrs post vintage, notes of black fruits predominate, tannins still present tho pretty well integrated, no rush if ya got em..

We are having pizza tonight. The warm up was 2017 Gibbs Carneros Pinot Noir, a very good example of Carneros Pinot that is lower in alcohol with ample acidity and tannin. There are dark fruits with light kitchen spices and a nice long finish. Ham. Pork chops. Even BBQ ribs without excessive sauces. I shouldn't post here when I'm hungry.

Here it is: 2015 Jack Proprietary Red Wine. 14.8 ABV. This is from Chris Ianetta and Vernon Wells, former baseball professionals. Obviously Cab based with supple tantalising black fruits and a variety of kitchen spices that change and accentuate the wine between sips and bites of food.

2011 Ridge Merlot Estate : I didn’t decant it but it could use an hour or so of decanting. I’m curious to taste it the rest of the week.

2015 White Rose Estate Pinot Noir Willamette Valley - USA, Oregon, Willamette Valley (10/29/2019)
Day 1: Fragrant nose. This is the first White Rose Estate wine I have tasted. For interesting featuring soy, rose petals, minerals, cranberry, spice and dirt. I can see this wine will evolve over the course of a few days. 90 points (90 points)

Grand Puy Lacoste 1990 - neck and neck with a Beaucastel 1998 to contend as my wine of the year so far.

Open alongside a Chateau Bouscasse Vieilles Vignes 1989 - still lively, perfectly fine and charming but got crushed by the GPL.

1982 Beronia Rioja Gran Reserva - One of the surprises of the year. Lovely bouquet of fading roses, mingled with leather and earth. On the palate quite lively, silky smooth, not powerful, on a steady decline. Wine kept evolving over the 2 hour dinner.

Note to self: old rioja's are some of the greatest values. Old Ldh wines remind me of a great burgundy with complexity in the nose and palate. Now need to hunt beyond the usual names.

2009 Rivers Marie - Panek Vineyard. We rarely open cabs these days and this was a treat. Good friends over and want to get a little "higher" with what was in the glass. Opened for 30 minutes and then disappeared quickly. Exquisite fruit, balance and depth. Silky tannin, no heat. Would be great to slowly enjoy over a meal but was great to share with folks that don't get to try the Queen's wines often. Is this approaching peak? I do not have the experience to judge but do not think it will be going downhill for awhile.

1999 Musar
A point and delicious; the fruit is a rich darkish red, and seems to have mellowed nicely over time; there is a lush, textural mouthfeel and then some leather towards the finish to evoke Bordeaux (or Tempier perhaps); there's just a bit of funk mixed in to remind you that this is Musar, but this is much cleaner than the half bottle I tasted over a year ago; good plus

79 Heitz Martha - Still loads of primary fruit with a healthy dose of the expected eucalyptus. Seems significantly younger.

An evening of classics

2016 Alzinger Riesling smaragd steinertal - What a nose, layers of white and yellow fruits than gradually emerge and evolve like a symphony. Pure, precises and crystalline. A wine Mozart will be proud of!

2014 Ramonet Saint Aubin En Remilly 1er cru - Classic Ramonet, spearmint hint of coconut, complex yellow fruit. Opulent, yet harmonious. The balance and precision is amazing here. This is surprisingly approachable at 5 years.

1997 Leoville Barton

Much more enjoyable than I had anticipated, given the vintage. Perhaps I need to seek out others of this year.

I bought a bunch of 1983 La Louviere @$45/per some weeks ago and opened the first last night. This is not a great wine, but it is a beautiful wine, in the sense that every sip inevitably draws consideration and appreciation. Full and complete. Just a spot-on bottle of aged bdx. For the price, a remarkable value.

I have never been a huge fan of La Louviere but have liked the 1983 the 3 or 4 times I’ve had it. Sounds like a good score.

2009 Rhys Alpine chard. Hot damn was this good. Big and rich with definite aged notes (but not oxidized at all) and zero heat or oak bitterness. Not a ton of acidity but manages not to be flabby at all. Just great.

2008 Brickhouse Le Dijonaise! Oregon 2008s I believe is their greatest vintage thus far. With about 30 minutes of decant this wine was drinking spectacularly. Still has lots of fruit with the tannins rounded out. Wonderful today with plenty of years ahead for it. Only his Evelyn does Doug any better than this wine.

Friends dinner last night in LA. No formal notes, but everything drank true to form over five hours. The Opus was lean and well made, despite being overhyped. The Chave, while young, was open for business and took WOTN, edging out the Vietti.

And the third glass can be even more exciting. That happens all the time when you make a habit of drinking fine red Bordeaux... [cheers.gif]

special occasion, and too many bottles even so, but here goes:

90 DP Rose Mag Excellent, fresh. Dependably great.
90 Ruinart Rose Mag Hadn't had one in a while; not as good as I'd hoped. Maybe just got outshone by the DP. Hope next one will be as good as I remember these used to be.

82 Latour Good but not epic
82 Mouton Epic.

89 Good, 90 really good, 91 uninspiring
91 Leroy CV bad bottle

'02 Pontet Canet last night, absolutely delicious. Loved my first glass and then the second glass was even better. Pretty cool when that happens.
And the third glass can be even more exciting. That happens all the time when you make a habit of drinking fine red Bordeaux... [cheers.gif]
Hah, absolutely right. I'm fairly new to higher-end Bordeaux but I am definitely finding that out, and definitely planning to make it more of a habit.
