Man, I hope that's not the case. I have just a few more that I'm counting on.... Have a 1989 Lynch Bages standing for holiday consumption. If it comes close to my last bottle, my 1989 curse will be done for a while....
Dok, from the batch you got from me? If so, I'm sorry to hear that. I've opened 2 that were ok from the same case.
Opened a '99 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, and as oxidized as any wine I can recall. Looked like a 100 year old Sauternes.
I rebounded with the 2005 J-P Fichet Puligny Montrachet Les Referts 1er Cru

Last night at Paese with friends. They have a new Sommelier, David Kipis, who was at Senses in the Soho Metropolitan before. The menu they planned to go with our wines paired beautifully, and served family style like the last couple of offlines at Paese.

Wine is passion. It is family and friends, warmth of heart, and generosity of spirit.
~ Robert Mondavi
2010 Domaine des Miles Chablis - wonderful pairing with some chicken piccata.
1999 Frescobaldi, BdM, Castelgiocondo

Suckling overrated the Castelgiocondo by 4-5 points. My bottle was certainly no 95.

1996 Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande
"One may dislike carrots, spinach, beetroot, or the skin on hot milk. But not wine. It is like hating the air that one breathes, since each is equally indispensable."
2004 Calon Ségur
2004 Frescobaldi, BdM, Castelgiocondo
2000 Pavillon Rouge du Chateau Margaux
Wine Doc, your thoughts on this? I've been holding one for a while and not sure when to drink it. TIA.
This bottle is brilliant. Everything you would want from an aged claret. A great nose of fruit and that Bordeaux earthiness. Tannins have completely integrated with wonderful fruit on the palate. I believe this is drinking well, and I would not hesitate to open if the occasion arises. For us, it was ham, salami, and cheese night!
This one is very approachable and ready to go, as opposed to a 2001 Maragux I had last month which was still a toddler.
Hawk, hold this wine. The best is yet to come.
Interesting. Think I'll stand one up.
1990 Il Poggione Riserva BdM - A very good bottle that shows the sweetness and purity of the fruit that only comes with maturity.
2000 Chateau Gazin Pomerol.
2004 Scholium Project Scythia Donati: This bottle was a little past prime. The last I had 2 years ago was in the sweet spot.
How was this? I recently purchased 2 x 2001 Gazin.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
2009 Camille Giroud Gevrey-Chambertin Les Crais
I'm curious, did you open because you think it is ready, or a different reason?
Simply because I was in the mood to enjoy a nice Pinot Noir. It is quite good actually. Might do a TN
