Re: So what about 2010?

I just bought the last six bottles of 2010 Cantemerle from MacArthur's. I love this wine. You snooze you loose.

Re: Uncorked a 2002 Pol Roger last night....

Yes it comes out to $67 per bottle with the NH gift cards, I'm going to buy a bunch.
It was really stunning last week, I absolutely loved it.
I saw that PC price, I'll wait.

Re: So what about 2010?

Yes Mark until 2010 came along, I have had the 2002 left bank vintage as the greatest certainly at least in this century, if not since 1961. Likewise, when I talk about the greatness of 2010, I am referring to the left bank.

Re: So what about 2010?

I've tasted a lot of Bordeaux vintages.
From what I can tell, 2010 is the greatest Bordeaux vintage ever.

Re: A short and plenty full moon night in Maine with the BD

Great fun indeed. I love those kids, they are so beautiful! And the rest of the company from Quebec was great company, as I usually find to be the case when I hang out with Canadians. It was great to see Marie-Claude again, I hadn't seen her in a while. I thought the 2000 Lynch was really on, it was...

I'll probably pick up some more bottles, especially with the $25 gift card special.

Re: 2010 is not the greatest vintage ever in Bordeaux

That 2010 La Providence that Nic brought the other night was 14.5%, and the alcohol was really unpleasant.
I've had some other 14-15% wines from 2010 and felt that the alcohol did not intrude.

Uncorked a 2002 Pol Roger last night....

Is this champagne always this good?
It was absolutely beautiful.
What does this normally go for?
It seemed like a bargain to me at $70-something but the prices are always so high nowadays in NH, so I'm sure I overpaid.

Re: The 2010 Cap de Faugeres has been uncorked....

This met all the benchmarks that I look for in Bordeaux.
I thought it might fade a bit at the end but it hung in there.
I'll give it a solid 90 points,

Re: 1989 Bordeaux Retrospective

Which Montrose do you prefer, Comte, the 89 or the 90?
Sounds like the 89 Leoville Barton and 89 Leoville Las Cases are coming around, two wines that I thought did not show much in their early years, especially against their 1990 counterparts.

My 2010 list (so far).

In response to brodway's question in another thread, these are the 2010s I've had so far (off the top of my head): 2010 La Fleur Cardinale: My potential wine of the vintage. Consistently brilliant. I'm gonna buy a case. 2010 Cantenac Brown: Stunning. I think I gave it like 97 points. 2010 Talbot: Ro...

Re: The 2010 La Lagune has been uncorked....

These super young Bordeauxs provide me a lot of enjoyment. The 2010 La Lagune is outstanding, everything in place, great ripeness and great structure. Smooth, sweet, ripe 1996 tannins. Loved it. HWSRN has it about right at 94. At $69ish I will buy more. Maybe a notch above the Cantemerle, Nic, they'...
