A very good ‘95 Pepe Clement, much better than expected, full of typical Graves smokiness and burnt tobaccos.

1995 geantet ponsiot charmes chambertin

Ready, finally. Absolutely lovely, not blocky like the vintage tends in general. As good as the 1997 was ten years ago...

2013 Ridge Torre Cabernet. I have a couple of bottles and wanted to see where it was at now. I wish more wineries would offer up ideal drinking windows on their labels like Ridge does.

As my Birthday fell on a weekday this year and corona restrictions in Copenhagen are now so tough you can´t go a café or restaurant (it has been like that for over a month now deadhorse ), I have had to change my Birthday plan. Usually I go to Copenhagen and stick to a very firmly preprogammed schedule, including morning church and coffee, lunch and wine bar(s). This January, everything is closed.
So I have moved almost all wine related activities to this Saturday. TNs will be posted after Saturday.
We share a birthday. Cheers champagne.gif

2017 Paul Pernot et ses Fils Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Canet: White flowers and green apple on the nose. The palate is clean and floral with notes of apple, white peach and lemon rind.

1996 Louis Jadot Clos St. Denis: A beautiful nose of sous bois, earth and dark berries. The palate has high acidity with notes of dark cherries, forest floor, iodine and black fruit. A tasty wine that is very much ready to drink.

Thanks for the note, I’ve been sitting on a lone bottle of this for years and now may finally pull the cork on it.

Françoise Bedel - Comme Autrefois

This champagne was absolutely, totally in my wheelhouse style wise. 55% Meunier, 30% Chard, and 15% Pinot Noir, 11 years on the lees, 100% oak.

Great autolytics, red apple, dried red berries, good minerality. Big champagne but still lively.

2009 Domaine Bernard Baudry Chinon Le Clos Guillot- just wow. Very slight funk upon opening that blew off right away and had the perfect cabernet franc notes that I absolutely love-bit of greenness, tobacco, and sweet black fruit. Wish the finish was bit longer, but enjoyed it greatly. In a perfect spot right now.

2007 Domaine Roulot Meursault Luchets
Big and buttery to start but tightens nicely to reveal citrus and a hint of the exotic, coming to a nice point on the salty, mouthwatering finish; the flavors are supported beautifully by the substantial mid-palate, which just goes on and on; lives up to Luchets' reputation for producing forward, fruity wines; though this is missing the fine detail you come to expect from Roulot's best, it is beautifully proportioned and satisfying; I don't think this will develop much further; good plus plus

With T-bone steak this past Friday dinner - both decanted for aeration in my cav for around 2 hours before serving. The young BdM riserva had the body/drive for a better pairing; but the NSG les Boudots was a clear over performer.

  • 2019 Domaine de la Cras (Marc Soyard) Bourgogne L'Equilibriste - France, Burgundy, Bourgogne (14/2/2021)
    Marc Soyard worked under Bizot for a while and the vineyards are almost next to the urban centre of Dijon. A low intervention and low alcohol wine (11%), clearly natural style with a little spritz but very clean winemaking here. Dark ripe fruits of cherries and bramble, more dark Bojo than Burgundy but worth a try if you can find this at a good retail price of around 50 SGD.

Amabuki Junmai Ginjo Himawari Sake

Complex and appealing aromatics with anise and potato notes. Smooth texture, hints of sourdough bread and saltiness, refreshing medium-big body. Good length.

Drank nicely by itself and mostly with ordered-in sashimi and negimaki Sunday dinner. Served chilled.

Had a very enjoyable Issan 2006:

Wonderful fresh bouquet of raspberry and spring flowers, then quite a hedonistic mouthful of raspberry, along with the blackcurrant one expects, but sufficiently elegant and restrained to avoid any syrupy feel to it. The only thing preventing it from being really excellent is for now the dry tannins, which pop up midpalate and stick to the throat. But after five hours in the decanter, these had somewhat receded - so for now, a long decant is necessary but in a few more years this should be really great stuff.

OTOH I had a wine last night which I really did not like - Belgrave 2010.
Like Cantemerle, Belgrave is a wine that I enjoyed in the 80s but which I have never found to be as good again since. The Belgrave 1985 was the first wine I ever bought E.P., for all of 7 Francs a bottle (those were the days). It was a wonderful wine which resembled a Margaux. Since then the style has gone all over the place, from mock-St.Julien, back to Margalais, with a very oaky patch between, and now, well at least in 2009 and 2010, full-on Rolland. I'm not totally anti-Rolland, there are some wines he advises on which I like, but not this one.
The 2010 is medium-bodied, but rich and heady, with surprisingly low acidity for a 2010, which gives the 14° a very free rein. The creamy blackcurrant, cherry and vanilla flavours are, depending on one's taste, compelling or off-putting. I did admire the complexity of the layered flavours but not the syrupy finish.
It's clearly quite ambitious, looking for attention and approval, but I can't help but feel it misses the point.

Owning a CC in Haut-Médoc must be increasingly tough - there are literally dozens of Crus Bourgeois snapping at their heels, producing wines which are as good at half the price or less. So what should they do? Well, I would have thought the answer would have been more classical elegance, or a concerted move towards organic farming, to produce something like Clos du Jaugueyron, just down the road. I certainly cannot fathom why they should produce a wine like this 2010.

Anyway, my wait goes on for another 1985, just like it does for another Cantemerle 1989.

1998 Musar
Fully tertiary red fruit with a high-toned lift from the VA and band-aid from the brett to add complexity; gleefully, transgressively delicious because you know you're not supposed to like these faults; in a lighter bodied, fresh style that is very easy to drink; like a cross between old-school Bordeaux (esp from the brett) and old Southern Rhone; good plus

Thanks for the timely report! I’m looking forward to halves of this vintage and a couple others in the coming weeks from a recent ex-cellar offer.

seems very slightly corked. still very drinkable but feels just slightly off. think I will open another tomorrow.
It was... opened another the night after to see for certain. Amazing how subtle it was, but the first bottle was definitely not right, although it was still very drinkable. No one else noticed anything until they tried it again the next night.

2001 Ogier Cote Rotie. After over a month and a half of no wine due to doctors orders, I opened up this bottle for one glass. No idea why I picked a Cote Rotie to celebrate my freedom from restrictions. Syrah is not normally my favorite grape variety. But this was quite interesting. Lots of barnyard smells on the nose, not in a bad way. The palate showed roasted meats as well mushrooms and earth. Definitely at its peak or a bit beyond. Enjoyed the glass while watching Bourne’s Romeo+Juliet, fantastic!
