Original Post

2000 Clos du Marquis.  Last and best of the four bottles.  It has picked up weight, color, and complexity since my previous experience.  Worth picking up a few more.

1990 IL Poggione Riserva BdM - a truly beautiful wine in a perfect place at the moment. 

I had 2 bottles of this which I brought back from Montalcino in 1997. Unfortunately they were both gone by 2005. Not that they were bad, they were both outstanding.

Steve. I bought an OWC in 2001 from a collector in NYC. Each bottle has been good but this one was great. Hadn’t tasted one in over 5 years so was very happy to see the remaining ones are in this special place. At least I hope so🤞.

With fellow forumites mareff, winedrmike, greenmike, Dave, Tom, Brian, and wives:

Billecart Salmon NV

1997  Tignanello

1950 Bodegas Berberana Gran Reserva (WOTN)

2011 SQN Dark Blossom 2011

1970 Inglenook (91)

1987 Vega Sicilia

1989 Dunn Howell Mountain

2001 Mouton

1989 Ride Monte Bello

1970 Beychevelle

1988 Leoville Las Cases

2006 Querce Bettina Brunello Riserva.  

Wine was very nice but more advanced than I expected at this stage and, as has been my recent experience with this producer, the cork was saturated almost 90% of the way through.  2 more bottles from them in the cellar but no more will be purchased until they clean this up.

The 1950 Berberana Rioja was a great surprise.  Checking my records, I picked that up in an auction about 9 months ago for the all-in price of $74.  Those sort of gems don't come around too often.

Also had a 2004 Chateau Coutet with dessert.  Speaking of food, North Square restaurant in Greenwich Village was a great call DoubleD. Food was good, reasonably priced and corkage was only $15.

My WOTN was the '87 Vega Sicilia Unico- fantastic right out of the gate. The '01 Mouton is in a great spot right now.  I think there was a touch of bret on the '88 LLC, but otherwise all of the wines were great.

Thanks Mike.  I love the Berberana.  Not only was it a treat, but it was also delicious.

The Ridge, Vega, Dunn HM, and Mouton didn't disappointment.  They were so good that I can't pick one over the other.  I didn't notice the brett on the LLC.  I thought it was lovely as was the Tig.  They were the next tier.  The Inglenook was still alive and drinking well.  Hard to compete with the younger wines.

Saturday  night with Allred, slipstichpass and our wives at Bite Cafe:

2011 Rene Geoffroy Champagne Premier Cru Volupte
NV Coessnes Champagne Rose de Saignee Largillier
NV Andre Clouet Champagne Un jour de 1911
2008 Joseph Drouhin Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc
2012 Ceritas Chardonnay Porter-Bass Vineyard
2012 WesMar Pinot Noir Hellenthal Vineyard
2012 Ceritas Piinot Noir Hellenthal Vineyard
2003 Chateau Filhot

It was interesting to see the Ceritas and WesMar Hellenthals side by side.  Every bottle showed excellent, and Bite Cafe is a great BYO spot in Chicago if you are looking for a casual night with excellent food.

Last night we had a 2012 Paloma Merlot with is drinking beautifully, but definitely needs a decant for sediment.

CSM-I met with Roberto in February and he acknowledged that the corks used in his wines were experiencing issues through the 2009 vintage. He switched cork suppliers for the 2010 vintage and has not seen issues since. He made the switch as soon as he realized the problem.

He must have still had some bad corks to use up after he switched.  It was the 2010 vintage that I had trouble vis corks.  Have you been buying them since (2011+) Longboarder?  It was great wine, but too many bad corks for me.
