Re: Christmas wines (in french)

La Conseillante 1996 was a real surprise, with left bank attributes (tastes and body). For Margaux 1996, and according to the very vintage, my fear was that the wine would not have been ready to drink. That was not the case (I know that you wrote it as a pronostic on your blog after a few recent tas...

Re: My best wines for 2015 (so far)

Salon 1996 is great (did not you plan to mention Carmes Haut-Brion 1915 in your list ?).
Not tasted the others, unfortunatly ...

For me yesterday evening, a stunning Château Margaux 1996, just starting a great long life (18,5/20+).

Profil éthéré, balsamique, cacaoté, épicé, fruité (confiture de fraises). Marqué par le millésime, indéniablement, mais on a moins de doute sur son avenir que dans l...

Re: Leoville night

I had a tremendous Las Cases 1990 a few years ago (19/20).

Same very high level for my best encounters with Palmer 1990 and Margaux 1990.

A former dinner with good friends in Paris : Champagne Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2005 : 17,5/18 – 18/11/2015 Beaucoup de classe pour cet excellent champagne qui lance magnifiquement la soirée.

Re: My best wines for 2015 (so far)

Laurent, as I mentioned, I will know my top ten wines after two upcoming dinners. But I am positive I have tasted my favorite young wine of the year. Have you tasted 2009 Montrose recently?

Re: My best wines for 2015 (so far)

Jeff, This bottle of Palmer 1990 was served along with Rayas 2001, Chave 1998 and Clos de Tart 2003. It turned out to be really astonishing (Chave 1998 is still too young). I had the RSV Hudelot-Noëllat 1989 during a dinner in Mosel at Dr. Loosen. We were 15 wines lovers and many of us thought that ...
