  1. 2009 Domaine Font de Michelle Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Elégance de Jeanne

    1. This bottle was finished far too quickly. With its forward, luscious character, ripe, sweet, cherries and kirsch, pepper, thyme, garrigue, and silky textures, it's easy to understand why.

  3. 1998 La Mondotte

    1. This smells great, with its chocolate covered cassis, plum, smoke and truffle filled nose. Full bodied, rich and deep, with freshness, sweetness and purity of fruit, the wine finish offers good length and volume. However, there is a masculine quality to the structure to the wine, at least at this moment.

  7. 2009 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Deus-Ex Machina

    1. Blending 60% old vine Grenache and 40% Mourvedre created a beauty of a wine. It's incredibly rich, with decadent, lush, silky textures, waves of liquefied kirsch, velvet tannins and a mouth coating finish that does not quit. Yeah, it's young. But it's so good, it's hard not to want to pop a bottle.

  8. 1990 Château L'Evangile

    1. Mature, with the patina of aged silk in its texture, a nose of floral, truffle, plums and cherries and soft,fresh, clean, but not quite exciting, slightly dusty finish. The wine was very good, but it seems to lack the level of excitement expected from a 1990 Pomerol. I'm happy to drink what I have, but I would not buy more to replace them when they are gone.

  9. 1982 Château Canon

    1. At 30 years of age, there are no great wines, just great bottles. This was great bottle. The floral, cherry blossom, crushed stone, forest floor and cigar box aromatics were enticing. On the palate, the patina of silk and velvet that accompanied the wave of fresh, sweet, ripe, pure cherries felt great. Popped and poured, the wine got better and better in the glass. This is worth finding a few bottles, if they have good provenance.

  10. 1990 Château Raymond-Lafon

    1. Ready to go, with its honeyed tropical, apricot, vanilla and orange marmalade nose, Sweet, lush, and satisfying, the honey enriched pineapple, apricot, white peach and grilled not finish was the perfect end to a great night.

  11. 1990 Delas Frères Hermitage Les Bessards

    1. Really nice wine, with its meaty, olive tapenade,, blackberry and earthy profile. Big, bold and concentrated, the wine has depth of flavor and complexity in the nose, leaving you with a big dose of fruit in the finish.

  12. 2009 Château Siaurac

    1. Medium bodied, classically styled wine that is better on the truffle, thyme and black cherry nose, than on the fruity, but slightly rustic palate. This is a wine to drink in its youth.

  13. 2009 Mas de Boislauzon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Tintot

    1. From 100% old vine, Mourvedre, the wine is incredibly dark in color. The nose, with its spicy melange of black fruits, flowers and herbs gets the wine going. On the palate, the wine is rich, fat, deep, concentrated and lushly textured. Still young, this should be better in 5, 10, 15, 20 or 25 more years as it has the stuffing to last. With a production of only 300 cases, if this is a wine you want to cellar, grab a few bottles now, because sooner or later, it will be close to impossible to find.

    1. Charcoal, black and red fruits, caramel, thyme, flowers, licorice and wet earth aromas create the beguiling, complex nose. On the palate, the wine delivers, supple, fresh, vibrant dark fruit, fig and chocolate with silky, supple textures and length. 95

    1. Soft, early drinking, medium bodied Margaux wine of pleasure, with freshness to the fruit, supple textures on the palate and no hard edges. This is another 2012 that really improved in barrel.

  21. 2012 Château Trotanoy

    1. Truffle, espresso, dark chocolate and ripe plums garner your attention initially. But it’s the juicy, sweet, ripe, black fruits that feel like they were polished with velvet cloths, before they were turned into wine that makes you take a step back. The sensuous, polished finish is fresh, pure, long and silky.
