I have a few of his 2009 Volnays, need to pick up some 2010s. Would be interested to hear your thoughts on them.

Nice, is the vintage supposed to be a good one ?

I have several vintages of Migliara as well as Il Bosco. Tried the 2004 Bosco and it was a beautiful wine that would be best at 10 years of age.
We should do an off line of top syrah wines from all over the world sometime Wink


Not a bad idea, Uncle John.

On the other end of the spectrum, my 80-year-old father-in-law just bought an iPad. He's almost never even touched a computer in his life.

Maison Roche de Bellene Chambolle Musigny "Collection Bellenum" Vertical Case 1995-2002

This is from a large collection of back vintages amassed by Nicolas Potel and relabeled under the name of his negociant house, Maison Roche De Bellene. I won't know who the original producer was until I look at the corks. But M. Potel tasted through some 2,500 older burgundies while selecting only 160 for the Collection Bellenum so I have reason to believe the juice will be of reasonably good quality. This case contains one each from the 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 vintages.

The complete story of the Bellenum Collection is here.

6L... wow.

These should start showing well in 2059 - 2109. A friend of mine in the biz ( best palate I know) tasted this wine at the Chateau. He thinks this wine (.750) will start to show in 25 years, but will really offer something special in 50+ years

I hope you are a VERY young person, aav. Wink

Finally got around to purchasing what some may consider one of the better representations of Cabernet Franc.

2004 Le Macchiole Paleo

I've never tried this wine but look forward to it.

Excellent choice. We tried the 2002 a few weeks ago and it was nice, probably the best effort possible given the difficult vintage. But it was nothing like the 2004. Look forward to your impressions when you try it.

aav. what did they cost?

I bought a 6 liter of 1979 Pichon Lalande and 1979 Leoville Las Cases at release, each for the same price. Care to guess the price?


Just one more sip.

I know, there's something fun about taking delivery after the long wait. Then you realize opening one so soon would be infanticide, so you have to wait another five+. I assume these were the 2011?

I love Anselme's wines.

Have you enjoyed his Version Originale or Les Carelles?

Give them both a lot of air and do not drink them too cold or even in a Champagne flute. Wink
