Very Nice! Wink

How was the Volcanic Hill? Curious how 1984 Cali Cabs hold up. (My birth year)

2010 Manu Propria Ex Animo Red Willow Vineyard
2009 Gorman Zarchary's Ladder

The Manu Propria was a tannic beast, but the Gorman was quite nice, but could easily age a few years as well.


Cheers!

How does it compare to the Dominode from Chanson ?

Haven't had the 2010 from Chanson, but in other vintages I always found more depth and complexity in Pavelot...

Thanks. I did really appreciated the 2009 Chanson and that's why I was wondering about the Pavelot. Not much left at our monopoly though...

Indeed! Thank you, Impulse, for introducing me to this wine.
I've opened a few and now buried a case deeply to keep out of my hands.
A gorgeous wine I greatly look forward to returning to several years from now.

tonight with steamed salmon, 2008 Bret Brothers Pouilly-Fuissé En Carementrant, loaded with apple and citrus flavours, exceptional finish, probably still improving but delicious today. A relative bargain in white Burgundies.

It's about $67 here, and absolutely worth it. This is outstanding Savigny; rare to find one this good around this price. I bought a bunch too.

I was impressed that the 75 Cos was alive considering the vintage. No doubt about the Krug and the story that went with it. KSCO2's influence strikes again. I liked the Cote Rotie and the Insinia.

In my experience, 1975 was a tannic vintage in Bordeaux. I'd expect the Cos to be alive, but question whether the fruit would last long enough for the wine to soften.


Just one more sip.

Very enjoyable bottle. Thanks for assisting in getting it into our hands mangaire. My TN:

Ripe, pure powerful sweet fruit. Tons of blackberry and cassis. Subtle secondary notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, blood, and iron (alla tuscany). Tastes very young by Bordeaux standards, but unmistakably napa in style. Really nice. Good acidity is keeping the fruit fresh. Biggest drawback is the short finish, but alcohol is very low and the wine is bone dry with prevailing tannins still giving structure. This should hold on a while and is immensely pleasurable. (93 Points)

Based on the bottle I consumed, I would try again in 2014-2015.

It was very enjoyable; displaying honey, lemon, flowers, and lanolin. The wine possesses the typical oily texture with a perfect, imo, acidic backbone and lengthy finish.

A couple more years should bring even more balance as the alcohol (14.5%) needs to integrate a bit more.


Sounds like it be good for a massage! Smile

Masseuse: "What'll it be today, Mr. Board-O?"

Board-O: "Give me "The White Rhone", sweetheart, and make it an '07; I understand it is particularly oily vintage."
