I'm thinking '89 Bordeaux is not your friend. Razz

That is three I'm aware of.


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.... Wink

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

1999 Frescobaldi, BdM, Castelgiocondo
2008 Mas Doix, Priorat, Les Crestes

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

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.

Would you say it's ready yet? I just have a single bottle.


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.

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.

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 Smile
