Okay, thanks to my friends currently drinking in the great city of Montreal, ( and their text photos) we are adding the '55 Montrose to our off-line tomorrow night.


Good for you and if your bottle is half as good as the one we enjoyed you are in for a treat.

Do any of these have enough sediment to stand? Just curious. Smile

I would stand the two above, without looking at the specific bottles.

You just don't know, so I lean to the safe. I've had wines with loads of sediment and just a few years old.

On the opposite side of the coin, when LB opened his '55 Montrose the other night there was absolutely no evidence of sediment whatsoever.

So go figure......

I have one or two left. I'd love to read your impressions.


1959 Domaine Louis Trapet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur

Please post notes! I love 1959 Burgundies.


Will do but don't you want to know how the Brunelli are drinking as well? Wink
Really sorry to hear that, Dok. I had the wine 4 times but the last bottle 15-20 years ago. We did one in a series of verticals comparing 1962 and 1955. We did another in a 1955 First Growth horizontal. One we did at a French restaurant where the chef/owner prepared a special meal for four or us, along with a 1971 Lafite. The last we had at a dinner on our home. All four were wonderful.

Ditto! Good to see you on your stop through town VinT. I'll set something up a little, um, nicer (sans fruit flies) next time you're through.


I kind of liked 'em. They helped me finally understand the phrase 'crunchy tannins'. Big Grin

DoktaP, what do you think about this one? Thank you.

Wineplease, this bottle was singing and firing on all cylinders. Probably the WOTN imho. It had all the elements you want in an aged cote rotie. It was described by one attendee as having the nose of a charcuterie board (bacon, cured meat, spice) with a heavenly floral (violet) hint. Drinking absolutely beautifully, but can hold on another decade easily. Worth sourcing if you have a chance. As a group, we felt that no score be assigned, but just take in the wondrous nature.

This bottle, from that night, is in a very short WOTY list.
Thanks sincerely, Dok, for sharing this. Wink

I brought a 55 Lafite 2 years ago to a WGWeekend in Toronto with DoktaP and it was great. This one, unfortunately, was dead.

Great. Thank you for your notes DoktaP.
I actually bought this one about 6 months ago and had been curious when should I open this one Big Grin
But I guess I should wait couple of months when my wife is allowed to drink wine again.
Hopefully i will have the same experience as yours and KSC02 when popping up this bottle.

My irony-meter is in the shop right now so I can't tell if you're joking or not. (I suspect you are.) But if it was a serious question, no special occasion.

Absolutely! Or, my underwear were too tight Big Grin


I knew it had nothing to do with all of the '59 Bordeaux and such we consumed. Wink


No '59 Bdx last night but Kiki's was superb as usual. The '87 Dominus was still very young in my opinion. With air in the glass it opened up but I wish I could have decanted for 5-6 hours.

I thought I was standing the '01 Big Grin


Doh! Bang Yes, you're right. I went to check that I had all standing after I posted that and thought I was missing one, then remembered you are standing the 01, forgot to change the post.

'02 Bollinger in case of good news on Monday.


Do you frequent Ellicottville? I spent a weekend there (one of the ski hills was trying to recruit me for instructing). Since getting more into wine than skiing another trip (and bringing some wine back) has appeal. A side trip to Century in Rochester and a visit with Sherwood Deutsch also appeals.

We'll talk tonight but short answer, before the baby yes, now no. Smile

I was an agent for Hollimont (the private hill) for a number of years and skied there from the early 90's on instead of up north. MUCH better IMHO.
