  1. 1998 Château Angélus

    1. In the background, Paul McCartney was belting out "She was just 17, and you know what I mean,,," I could not believe how young and fresh this wine still is. But do not that stop you from popping a cork, there are secondary notes galore, flowers, boysenberries, chocolate and truffle notes screaming just as loud as McCartney! The wine seems to have added additional levels of concentration since it was last tasted. The wine feels longer, taking up more room in your mouth. Splash decanted, the wine developed its trademark silky character within an hour and continued softening during the night. You can drink this bottle of pleasure now, or wait another 5-10 years, if the wine is well stored.

  2. 2009 Mas de Boislauzon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Quet

    1. Rich, ripe, intense and juicy, this lusty, dense wine is packed with fresh, sweet, kirsch, black raspberry, pepper and a hint of black cherry jam. Young, fresh and plush, this palate staining wine was delicious.

  4. 2010 Château Villars

    1. If you're seeking a forward, ripe, plush wine filled with licorice, chocolate covered cherries and earth, with round, soft textures, that is drinkable on release for a fair price, look no further. It's not going to make old bones, but that misses the point on wines like this.

  5. 2010 Château Olivier Blanc

    1. Blending 80% Sauvignon Blanc with 20% Semillon produced a wine that combines fresh grapefruits with orange peel and floral characteristics. There is a nice touch of honeydew melon that further complicates things. The fresh finish and open character make this prime for early drinking.

  6. 2012 Domaine de Chevalier Blanc

    1. Blending 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon produced an exciting wine with lift, energy and freshness that really lets you experience the ripe, grapefruit, lemon zest, honeydew, marmalade, floral and mineral elements present in the wine. The finish feels great with the right balance of ripe fruits and acidity.

  7. 2012 Château Les Ormes de Pez

    1. Showing a bit too much oak, coupled with the bright cranberry and cassis notes, that leaves you with a touch of dryness in the crisp finish.

  9. 2012 Clos Fourtet

    1. Smoke, truffle black cherries and licorice scents catch your attention and the smooth, soft, silky, polished, sweet, ripe fruits on the palate keep you focused on what’s in your glass. The long, supple, chocolate coated, black cherry finish is a treat.

  13. 2012 Château Prieuré-Lichine

    1. Medium bodied, forward, correct, soft textured wine, without faults, but once past the floral, earthy, smoky black cherry nose, the wine is slightly less exiting and concentrated than it should be.

  19. 2012 Château Pape Clément Blanc

    1. Blending 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon and 15% Sauvignon Gris and perhaps a dash of Muscadelle worked perfectly. That is if you like the idea of sweet honeydew, grapefruit, orange and lemon zest, lift and vibrancy in your wine. I know I do and I really liked it!
