Ever had the 2007 ? First St-Henri in the cellar, never opened one yet...


No. I have a couple of 2005's but might go pick up a couple of the 07, since there are still some on the shelves. Hold. I've been told they show best after 10 years and my 2002 was certainly proof of that.


Will wait then !

I hear you. This bottle should have been consumed at least ten years ago. I also have a '91 and three '98s that I need to get to real soon.

Used to be a poster here from Queensland (Pauli) who always said that the St Henri was a 30-year wine. Don't know if I want to wait quite that long, but I've got a few 98's that I'm still letting rest in the cellar.

I've got several 97's in the cellar and they are still going strong. The 91 might be a different story, but your 98's might be in fine shape if well-stored.

I love this style of wine, it was great with dark fruits not too tight.

I was given a bottle of this ( OU - Texas) game.

How was it?


I liked it.
Had a great nose upon opening; about 45 mins later it went into a dull phase but came back nose wise at the end of the night. Full body with soft tannins plenty of dark fruits, chocolate is what I remember. I will probably open the next one in 2-3 years.

2005 Domaine Parent Pommard Les Chanlins 1er


The 04's were showing reasonably well, much better than my last experience with them. The Malartic-Lagraviere drank well but nothing about it jumped out at me. I thoroughly enjoyed the Lascombes and felt that it was much more ready than the Cos d'Estournel. The Lascombes was from magnum and showed quite well after a good decant. It will continue to get better with additional cellaring but I won't hesitate to open any of my remaining bottles. The Cos d'Estournel was a little tight(could have used a longer decant) but very enjoyable. Its very well balanced, polished, and concentrated. It is an impressive effort for the vintage and I will let my remaining bottles sleep for another year or so before trying another.
