Re: 1996 La Lagune

La Lagune / Cantemerle seems to be a nice little sweet spot for me.

Re: TN: 1989 Château Lynch-Bages (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Pauillac)

I have 2.5 bottles left, robert goulet, one of which was given to me by BWE.
I too cannot afford it any more, it consistently exceeds $300 at auction.

Re: '99 d'armailhac

The 2006 d'Armailhac was likewise a similar, very approachable, light on its feet, delicious Pauillac.
Too bad this once $20 wine now goes for $65+.

Re: 2010 Ascheri Barolo Pisapola on a warm Boston spring afterno

Ha my buddy said the same thing about the golf clubs.
A rough year. Very inconsistent. One night they would look like world beaters, the next they couln't get out of their own way.
The Barolo was delicious!

Hung out in Boston's North End today, after watching the the Sox play the Nationals at Fenway. Had a tasty little Barolo, fresh, fragrant, rose petals, medium bodied, 14%, nice acidity, fruity, very delicious with the fine food at Restaurant Fiori on Hanover Street. 91 points.

Re: Chateau Langoa Barton 2004 and two Rhones

But I think based on what I have tried Leoville Barton and Pichon Baron have vaulted Ducru.


Wow! That's a bold statement!

Re: TN: '82 and '86 Cos d'Estournel

Yum, I was so impressed with that young 2001 Cos I had recently.
It was so Lafite-like.
I'm actually tempted to buy a bottle of the 2010 for $250.

Re: 2005 Pierre Gelin Gevrey-Chambertin Clos de Meixvelle

I absolutely loved this wine. It is amazing how young it is. Actually, not that amazing, as I have always been impressed by the ageability of Burgundy and predicted this about the 2005s in particular. The color shows absolutely no signs of aging. It has been sitting in my cellar since I bought it up...

The problem, of course, is the OCD issue.
If I crack open the case there will not be a bottle left by the end of the year.

Chateau Dauzac I'm pretty sure was the Decanter 2005 wine of the year.
