Ok, so how were they? I had mixed feelings about 2010 after the UGC - so tannic, so much dark fruit(left bank). I did like the Leoville Barton though.

So... how were they?

My palate got overwhelmed early -all those big tannins. Pomerol as a whole seemed more balanced. Gruaud Larose stood out on the left. Some could be really oustanding with significant ageing when the tannins settle down and they integrate. Beychevelle and Rauzan Segla come to mind there. Lafon Rochet seemed more balanced and approachable young than other left bank wines. La Cabanne (Pomerol seemed it would be approachble from 5-6 years.

Clinet and La Conseillante were outstandiing.

That is the reason I did not bother attending this year. I believe we met at the tasting last year and despite being a more approchable vintage it was difficult to evaluate the wines then.

Great to hear about Pomerol as I have a few coming in, along with the GL. Any recollection of Malescot or Clos Fourtet?

2010 Trotanoy

Where did you buy these? I love Trotanoy and have been unable to source any.

BTW, the last '89 LLC I opened was absolutely tremendous!


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Futures has them @ $259. Pretty reasonable considering lowest US price seems to be $345.

Unfortunately - no notes on Clos Fourtet, and missed Malescot. I have a couple of vintages of Malescot, so I'm considering still picking some up before they close off futures.

2009 was definitely a big vintage, with big fruit, but seemed more balanced and accessible at the UGC than 2010. Time will tell for 2010 but right now, I'd be more interested in the 2009s despite picking up a few 2010s.

One of the reasons I like going to the UGC is to get an overall impression of the vintage, at that stage, even if it means a vintage that may not be the most interesting or compelling down the road.

Dok, the Barton and LLC were sourced south at good prices in comparison to the LCBO but as Boredough stated, the Trotanoy is a "steal" at the LCBO relative to anywhere else. Who woulda thunk it?

My 1998 Guigal La Mouline arrived today and is now in the cellar.

I love buying things that take time to ship. It seems so $pain$ free when they show up. Big Grin
