1995 heidsieck blanc des millenaires - wowed by this wine again last night 
2001 Altesino Montosoli - needed a decant after a 4+ hour slow-ox. Very good but not showing as well as the 1997 a few weeks ago. Based on last night I would say this needs another 3-5 years to display more sweetness and shed some rough tannin that are still present.

Interesting on your Montosoli ... I popped and poured one at the cellar after dinner when Sarbuze was in town last month, and it was pretty awesome right out of the gate, and continued to improve as it warmed up. The bottle didn't last very long, that's for sure! I didn't find the tannins harsh at all. Is there still upside? Sure. But it was very, very tasty that night.

So far this weekend:

2015 Henri Prudhon & Fils Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Perrières

2015 Pieropan Soave Classico La Rocca

1994 Faustino Rioja I Gran Reserva

1999 La Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri Rioja Gran Reserva

The ‘94 Faustino came across as much younger than the Remelluri. Both were a pleasure to drink, but the Remelluri was by far the better wine and in a lovely spot.

What did you think of this, Sunny? It’s available here $53.

I’ve not had a St Aubin that’s impressed me, but would love to have that perception changed.

Last night, 2015 Duboeuf Julienas Chateau de Capitans, which we like a lot, tons of dark fruit, just enough tannin to help it stand up to most meats (and esp roast chicken), good acidity, and inexpensive.

Tomight, 2014 Mark Haisma Santenay Blanc Saint Jean, floral nose, melon, pear, light citrus flavours, bit of mineral, good acidity, silky, notes of Brazil nut on the long finish, excellent. Or to use my lovely wife’s one-word descriptor, “Yummy!” 😋

I've run into this several times now with Spanish producers and it's got me wondering if I should be asking to see a birth certificate.

2916 Enfield Rosé of Pinot Noir - Antle Vineyard. Jumped out of the glass, strawberry, orange peel, minerality and a little saline. So much fruit you almost thought it has some RS but I don't think it does. Chuggable but still more than serious enough to stand up to real food.

I've never had a bad bottle of Enfield.

1997 Robert  Mondavi Stags Leap Cab for 21st anniversary with lamb chops

I’ve never known you to refer to her as “lamb chops” before, but it is a very nice term of endearment, I think.

Big congratulations to the two of you!!

Thanks. We are both laughing hysterically

I’ve slowly been drinking and enjoying a case Girardin’s st Aubin however not sure the QPR is there in current vintages.
