That's a good idea for a thread. Someone should start one.

3x '93 Drouhin 'Clos de Mouches' Rouge

Trying not to buy much wine these days, but Drouhin's Mouches is one of my personal favorites.
Good wine, I am slowly consuming a case of this.
Your notes were one of the things that pushed me over the edge to make the purchase.

Off-topic, but Mouches is a great wine to backfill. It's a long-ager, it has long been of high quality, and it really doesn't escalate much in price (probably part because it's Beaune, part because it's Drouhin, and part because there's a fair bit of it made). I paid $149 for the '93, and I recently-ish picked up some '05 and '10 for ~$100/btl. The '17 is in the $115-120 range.

Good prices.

I picked up a case of ‘16 recently at around US$85/b all in. Still waiting for ‘05 and ‘10 with decent prices to show up.

A few cases of Gilles Barge Côte-Rôtie

2013 Côte Brune
2013 Coeur le Combard
2015 Le Combard
2016 Le Combard

Looking forward to sampling a few bottles but most are for deep storage. Guessing they need 15 years or so.

Very much an impulse purchase... No idea if the one on the left is dead on its feet, but curious to see. Amazing how a mainstream Alentejo red was 12% thirty years ago (I wasn't born yet). The one on the right is for the 'special occasion' rack.

1 cs 2014 Waxwing Cellars Pinot Noir, Spring Hill Vnyd (Petaluma Gap) - The winemaker was offering 3 wines to his email list for $100/case and $110/mixed case, pick up only. I live 10 minutes away. 12.6% alc, very tasty. Definitely polar opposite from the Kosta Browne paradigm.

10 btls Edmunds St. John - 2015 North Canyon Road Syrah, 2019 Bone-Jolly Gamay Noir Rosé, 2019 Heart of Gold (Vermentino/Grenache Blanc). Picked up at Steve's house. It was nice to chat with him and Cornelia.

I got my offer in February and finally bit on it based on the strength of the La Combe Verte I was able to get my hands on locally, and the fact that I'm realizing in-person tastings of the lineup just aren't going to happen anytime soon (and kidding not kidding if I wait long enough Charlie will buy them out of all their X-Novo).

I got my offer in February and finally bit on it based on the strength of the La Combe Verte I was able to get my hands on locally, and the fact that I'm realizing in-person tastings of the lineup just aren't going to happen anytime soon (and kidding not kidding if I wait long enough Charlie will buy them out of all their X-Novo). If you don't have an allocation, you should jump on the benefit cases: viewtopic.php?f=85&t=169188
Oops! Just remembered that my unopened case is sitting in the basement. As I don’t remember which wines I ordered, it will be like a Christmas surprise.
That sounds like a fun surprise. [cheers.gif]

2x 2000 Magdelaine
It was you!
Congrats, those bottles looked great
Thanks, it's a vintage I still haven't had the chance to try so I'm looking forward to it.
Really curious to see what you think. I have 11 bottles, have had 3 in the past year. One showed great, two definitely, like a 95 that i just had, suggest more time is necessary. Totally different wine, of course, but I also felt that about a recent 2000 VCC. These struck me as funny since some of the left banks i’ve slowly been popping are opening.

I'll probably open one and put the other one away for a while. Of course I'd rather open it when I"m not the only one drinking so it might be a while anyway.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

Of course a new month means a new NH sale. This month its Italy but there's not much I'm looking for right now except 2016 Produttori del Barbaresco, grabbed a case. Loved the 2015 and 2016 is even better. While I was there I found an eclectic 2001 Emidio Pepe Montepulciano d'Abruzzo in magnum. The price was just too good to pass up. Someone ordered it a while ago but never picked it up so I got it for a good discount.

That Clos Rochette Blanc is excellent. Recently picked up some more after opening one.

A case from Elephant Seven:

4 x 2018 Viognier Blue Mountain Vineyard
4 x 2018 Cosmic Reflection
4 x 2018 Syrah

For $271 delivered, I call that a screaming deal. I've had the Cosmic Reflection in the past (love it), and the Viognier (love it), but am really excited to try the 2014 Syrah . It's a WWV designate, but a blend from vineyards. The way they describe it on the site is particularly exciting:

A fresh, almost Cru Beajolais-like Syrah from Walla Walla. We wanted to make a fun, fresh style of Walla Walla Syrah that would be approachable in its youth. This Syrah received less skin contact that usual, about 15 days compared to our 30+ for our other wines. Unlike our other Syrahs, the wine was racked twice, made in a less reductive style, and with no whole cluster fermentation. As usual, feral primary and secondary fermentation was employed. The wines was aged in mostly neutral French oak, although two of the barrels had a subtle influence of new Fresh oak. This Syrah was aged for just nine months in barrel.
