Re: 2001s

I am also a big fan of 2001 Bordeaux - lots of good stuff on the left bank. On the other side, I agree with Comte Flaneur on Chateau Margaux (probably the best 2001 red Bordeaux, at least that I've tasted). Also agree with Jim on the Pape Clement - another really good 2001. Haven't had either but I ...

Re: My top 3 wines Saturday night

I believe Michael P said the Saturday night mystery wine was 1961 Château Canon-la-Gaffelière. I thought it was older than 1970 and possibly even from the 50s but ended up guessing 1967.

Re: Need Bordeaux for the weekend?

I can recommend Wide World of Wines. Lots of interesting stuff downstairs. I have known the owner (Elliott Staren) for a long time. I dropped by this afternoon and picked up a few of the goodies that Jay posted above.

I'll bring a Barolo, a Burgundy (a Saint-Jacques) and something from the Rhone.

Re: BWE DC '14 Saturday 3/29 Dinner

I was NOT suggesting a blind tasting of 1980s Cordier wines. I am fine with the blind tasting of 2000 and 2002 that is being organized. What I was suggesting was that perhaps 1989 might be an additional theme for wines to drink with dinner given that many of the attendees don't have Cordier wines fr...

Re: BWE DC '14 Saturday 3/29 Dinner

There is a rumor (don't know if it's true) that David Glasser has cornered the market in 1989 Lynch Bages. Maybe he can bring one. Of course he may be holding them back until the price gets to $1000 per bottle. --------- OK, so I just made that one up. Actually, I can bring a bottle of 1989 Lynch Ba...

Re: TNs: Some 1998 Chateauneuf du Papes

Funny you should mention 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape - Marjorie and me enjoyed a bottle of 1998 Pegau Cuvee Reserve this evening with beef short ribs stew. This is very nice and pretty much mature at this point but still very fresh on the palate.

Don't know what to make of this discussion but there are a few 1996 right banks that I have really enjoyed - particularly Angelus and L'Eglise Clinet.

Re: What is your Lynch/Angelus/La Lagune/Pavie Maquin?

For me it was Gruaud Larose. Started with the 1971, 1970, 1966 and 1962. Then it was 1979, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1986 from the Golden Age of Cordier. After that Gruaud started to lose its mojo for me. More recent vintages (1990, 2000 and 2003) are good but they don't have the same distinctive f...

Re: 2009 Cantemerle, 2009 Meyney, and 2010 Vrai Canon Bouche

In case anyone is wondering, 1982, 1986 and 1989 Meyney are all still doing fine (I have a few of these in reserve). If I remember correctly, 1961, 1962, 1966, 1970 and 1978 were also very good.

Smoke on the Water - 1996 Pape Clement

Very smoky aroma. It was smooth, rich and creamy. Earthy with black cherry, lead pencil and a bit of funk. Mid-weight, well balanced and quite distinctive. Liked this one a lot. It's into its drinking window and one of my favorite 1996s so far. If you want a score, a solid 92-93. Opened based on the...

Re: 1996 Angelus

Good choice, Ian. Both the 1989 Angelus and the 2001 Chateau Margaux are extraordinary wines. I've had the 1996 Angelus several times in the past and enjoyed it very much (probably a solid 92 point wine to my taste). I think I paid $60 to $75 for the bottles and while I thought they were worth it (r...

Not much experience with 2006 Bordeaux - I think the only one I bought is Haut Bailly. Did buy a few 2006 red Burgundy - a good "normal" red Burgundy vintage. Hard to say what a "normal" Bordeaux vintage might be. How about 1985?

1989 Cadet Piola. It's the t*ts! A serious question: if this has really been merged with Soutard, which label should they keep? Sure is. I would certainly keep the Cadet Piola label - one of my favorites. Wine wasn't too bad either - drank quite a few bottles of 1970-1982 Cadet Piola. Chris Bublitz
