I really enjoyed this on New Year's Eve. Great wine, and glad I have 3 more.

Some baby killing yesterday with gkapoor:

2009 Etienne Sauzet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champ-Canet –Overall I have enjoyed the style of the 2010 vintage over 2009 so far in Burgundy, but this was an excellent showing. Plenty of fruit on the palate but nicely balanced with a mineraly finish and nice acidity. Some 09’s have been overdone for me, but this was fantastic.

2009 Pontet-Canet – We opened this around noon and had a taste and then just let it slow o in the cellar until dinner. While obviously young this was surprisingly easy to drink with nice ripe fruit on the attack and really fine tannins that were not harsh at all despite its youth. No trace of alcohol to me which I have heard might be an issue for 09. Will be a blockbuster with some age, but it was enjoyable now if you want to pop one before it shuts down.

1999 Mouton Rothschild – Had a taste of this at the restaurant from one of those enomatic wine machines. More of a red fruit profile that is starting to show some age. Very enjoyable “classic” Bordeaux, but I wouldn't pay the going rate for this wine these days.

Fun night as always with gk.

What did you think of this?


It started off somewhat light (understandable for the vintage) with underbrush and a bit of barnyard (which blew off). Nose and flavors were typical Beaune with underbrush, mushrooms, red fruit and a bit of smoke. After a couple of hours it put on some weight and was quite enjoyable. It's showing a bit of age but still has time to go. I'm not sure if it will improve from here, so I'd drink them if I had more 2001s. 89pts. It did make think that the 2006 I have should be excellent, and 2005 could be a good QPR.

The 99 Boisrenard is in a good spot still but I don't know how many more years it has. My favourite wine was ths 04 Paleo, so everything pales in comparison.

No surprise on the 04 Paleo! Winner It would be a hard act for the others to follow. Glad to hear the Boisrenard was good. I had a 1990 a while back that was good but probably a bit past peak imo.

Some memorable ones:
1986 Quarts-de-Chaume, Chateau Bellerive, the oldest wine in my cellar, like frozen in time, has nit changed during the last years
1999 Chateau Rieussec, Sauternes
2005 Heritage de Thieuley, Chateau Thieuley, the first time i opened a 2005 Bordeaux, a totally understated "Appellation Bordeaux" from a true wine magician, thank you Mr. Francis Courselle.

Last night with roast duck - 2010 Kutch Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch. Way young, but I have 6 and wanted to get a gauge. I haven't even tried any of my '09s yet as I only have three of those.
