N.V. André Robert Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Cuvée de Réserve – Solid for the money


I'm not sure I have had this wine before. Should I check it out?

I'm a fan of vintage Alain Robert BdB.
I think you should. Not going to wow you, but for $29 I would rather drink this than the yellow label/white stars of the world.

2008 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc- a bit rough, probably will benefit from further aging

2000 Domaine de la Charbonniere CdP Vieille Vignes- outstanding

2005 Oliverhill Jimmy Section Shiraz- reminded me why I no longer buy Shiraz


Just one more sip.

Wow! How was the Rousseau?


Rousseau was really quite nice...I was 92 pts. the nose was utterly captivating....great fruit and a tonne of nutmeg, cinnamon, strawberry, earth and beet. The palate and finish were not as full but still quite enjoyable

2007 Rhys Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard
how is the Rhys drinking? I have been thinking about opening one soon.

This was my first Rhys Syrah, and I was a bit unimpressed. The nose was nice, with dark fruits, leather and some spice. But the taste seemed very straightforward with just plum flavor. Not sure if it is a matter of this wine not being in the best spot now, or if it is representative of this wine in general. I gave it 87 points.

That's a shame about the Rhys Syrah. I have a few of the 2008 bottling, and am expecting the same. The pinots on the other hand... Woot

2009 Alvaro Palacios, Priorat, Les Terrasses

Very well made wine that needs some time for the oak to integrate.

what was your take on the 2003 Montrose?

I have a few bottles, but wasn't planning on opening any for quite a while.


Redhawk, I have tasted the '03 Montrose a number of times at trade tastings. While I feel many '03 vintage Bordeaux drinks well early due to their atypical style, I think the Montrose is not one of them. I think based solely on my experience, this Montrose will be a true Wow wine from between 2015-2030.


The bottle we had didn't show well at all... a very pale comparison to another bottle I had a few months earlier. I would say it is probably in a really bad spot at the moment, and that another decade in the cellar will do it some good.

St-Estephes are notoriously long-lived wines
and I wouldn't touch them for at least 15-20 years. Maybe the 2003 is atypical given the hot year but I am not surprised it isn't showing well right now.

How was this?
To me it resembled more of a village level burgundy or bourgogne. Couldn't coax much from the nose upon opening with the palate a little tight. Drank over 3 days though and felt it got better on day 2 with it showing best on day 3. Never opened up to a ripe pinot but stayed on the lean side with no oak showing but more on the acidic side. I enjoyed the wine for the price and felt it was food friendly. If you have this, don't expect a lot of fruit but more a lean wine with some funk coming from mushrooms, earthy overtones and wet dirt. The only balance issue I have with this is the acidity being on the high side. Again, not bad for the price in my opinion.

2009 M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Domaine de Bila-Haut blanc - awesome wine for $12. Loving the quality of the entire bila-haut lineup.

I had my lone bottle of this last year and was blown away by how good it was. I went to the winery last summer and they did not have any of the 2000 in the library for sale. I wish I could find more.

I bought a case of it. I'll share one with you. All you have to do is come to NY.

Thanks for the offer, although I have no plans to be in NY anytime in the near future. Frown
