2004 Bruno Giacosa Barolo Vigna Croera di la Morra

A bit of a unicorn wine. The only vintage Giacosa released from this vineyard. He eventually sold the land after a few vintages that didn’t meet his standards (and which he scrapped). But this 2004 was superb. Very pretty, beautifully perfumed, juicy red fruit, silky tannins, excellent acidity. The bottle disappeared quickly.

to kick off Mrs. VeV's bday celebrations over the weekend:

2019 A Sunday in August Piquette Rose

2014 Peter Lauer Kupp Riesling Fass 18 GG

NV Bernard Gaucher Brut (2008 base)

2001 Ridge Buchignani Ranch Carignan

2016 Damien Coquelet Morgon Cote du Puy

All were good with the Lauer and Ridge as real standouts.  The Ridge was still fresh as a daisy without any bricking at the edge while the nose and palate were showing some tertiary notes as it enters its drinking widow.

2018 Forge Cellars Dry Riesling Classique. Meh - not much going on and the shortest finish I can recall on a wine that I expected a lot more from. The Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling from Australia blows this away. 

Bill, surprised you had that experience with this wine.  We are members of the wine club and generally love what they produce.  Haven't tried the '18 Classique yet though.
