What did you think? Have had the NH Chardonnay a couple of times. Good but, for me, quite lean.

No one from last night remembers what we drank? Smack I'll try. Last night for the visits of Mr & Mrs Bman and Darcy with locals KSC02, Impulse, Uncle John, Mimik and significant others, we had a syrah themed dinner at Wellington.

NV Bollinger, Champagne, Cuvee Speciale
1998 Chapoutier, Hermitage, Monier de la Sizeranne
2001 Ferraton, Ermitage, Les Dionnieres
2002 D'Arenberg, The Dead Arm
2002 Elderton, Command
2005 Les Vins de Vienne, Cornas, Les Barcillants
2004 Guigal, La Turque
2003 Alessandro, Il Bosco
2004 Alessandro, Il Bosco
2007 Copain, Thompson, Santa Barbara
2009 Laughing Stock, Syrah
2008 Cayuse, Cailloux
2003 Penfolds, RWT

There was also a sauternes, which I had never heard of before. Mimik?

My WOTN's were the Dead Arm and the Command. Eek

I liked it more on night #1, had nice glycerine mouthfeel to balance against jammy blackberry and spice. By tonight, day 2, some of the round fruit and soft texture was gone, leaving leaner more tannic finish.

rule for this wine is drink up, carpe carpe

Thanks Steve! I always rely on your phenomenal memory to give me the list of the wines I drank!

It was really good to see Mr and Mrs Bman after a long absence.

Interesting, your two WOTNs are the two wines I liked the least... My WOTN were the Chapoutier Sizeranne and La Turque.

And my highlight of the night was the reaction to the Canadian wine, which seemed to please the crowd.

Steve8, it was a 2007 chateau larinbotte Sauternes.

Tonight with rack of lamb, a drab but a pleasant 2009 chateau fleur cardinale, excellent.

The nose on the Chapoutier was amazing, but I found the wine to be a little light. I had a 98 several years ago and found the same, except the nose was nowhere nearly as developed as this bottle.

La Turque...what to say? Except to hold your other bottles if you have them.

I really liked the Laughing Stock and would have never picked it out blind as a Canadian wine. I see their website only has the 2010 available. Have you tried it yet?

Last night

1999 Masi, Amarone, Mazzano

Excellent. By the end of the bottle it was almost port-like.

If anyone is ordering, I'd be in for a case. It drank beyond its' price point and this is one Canadian wine that I'd be happy to have in my drink-now-or-hold short-term cellar

FYI: there is still some Laughing Stock Chardonnay 2009 available in Ontario and it's one of the ones marked down in that big Vintages sale. No Syrah though.

How was the wine? Did you decant? I love the 2005 but it still needs 2 years IMO.

Thanks for the info, Bruce.

It is their Syrah, specifically, that I'm interested in at this time.

I've had the 2010 a few times already. Very good, but slightly behind the 2009...
