How was it, eyesintime?

I seem to recall Chris Kissack thought it was a very good C-Despange.

Thoughts, w+a? How did the Alion show? Ready to open?


Good question, KSC02. I'm not sure, but darn good.

I have never really aged one of these wines. I always find them so solid after 6+ years, I tend to just drink them. Smile

I'm still sipping and it's very good. Very dark and surprisingly primary, a touch ripe but balanced with a good round finish. Its drinking well but IMHO there will be upside by holding another 3+yrs.

Young but still enjoyable. Fruit started to peek through after a two-hour decant, but still needs another couple of years to come together.

Yeah, not my type of DP. It was chalky and driven by minerals on palate. Not what I would have expected for a hot vintage.

I've been disappointed in the Bertagna wines I've tasted, at least in relation to other similarly-priced wines from the same appellations. I visted there and found all the wines good, but not special.


Just one more sip.

First of the 3 I purchased upon release. It was nice. Seemed to be in a kind of inbetween stage. A little more air might have helped. I'd put it at 88-89. Never going to be a great wine, but for the $18 it cost, I was very happy. I'll probably wait a year to open the next one.
