2002 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses (Wm. Fevre)- solid, youthful wine.


Just one more sip.

Over the past week or so:
2007 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova - I knew it would be early, but this really was a waste to have at this point
2009 Lewelling Cabernet Sauvignon - again, early, but this doesn't appear to be my style
2011 Brengman Brothers Block 65 Blend Crain Hill Vineyards - this was nice
2010 Carlisle Zinfandel Monte Rosso - pretty nice, but needs at least another year or so

I know that's right up your alley for food and wine combos. You need to time your local visit to include a weekend, my friend. Smile


Agreed, and with J.

That 2006 Jamet risks being very young Seaq.

It was much better than the last time I had it about a year ago. Not a blockbuster but for $20 a very decent everyday wine. Will probably be at its best in a year or two. This is the 4th bottle from a case. I would give it 89-90 points but not the 92 Suckling gave it 4 years ago.

Damn good Sass, isn't it?

Indeed. We let it sit two hours in glass at which time it absolutely blossomed. Always a good show and my favorite vintage of Sassi (overall)

How did the Cathiard show? I didn't get a chance to taste too many of his wines while I was in Burgundy but his 2006 Suchots was stunning.


Defiantly a new world producer, if tasted blind I would have thought it was a Cali Pinot.

You may be right, Steve. I will switch it to 2004 Mathilde et Yves Gangloff Cote-Rotie La Sereine Noire. Similar flavour profile to the Jamet but more forward vintage.

1989 Jaboulet La Chapelle - this was muted. It wasn't off or defective, just very muted. I'm almost wondering if it needs another 3-5 years.
1990 Rauzan Segla - very good mature Bordeaux and the table's wotn. Beautiful nose, full palate, and fantastic structured finish. No rush to drink this.
1997 Lisini BDM - my wotn. The freshness alone was worth the price of admission. Delicious juice.

On a side note- we enjoyed these wines at Nota Bene. The wine service was top drawer and corkage is free after 9pm. ($25 before) We had a great night with the sommelier and when the bill came, they comped the corkage for all 4 bottles. It was totally unnecessary but a great gesture.
