Vieux Chateau Certan

"The 2017 Vieux Château Certan was picked in three passages through the vineyard, 12 and 13 September, 18 and 19 September and finally 25 September to 2 October. The yields are 37hl/ha with 14.2° alcohol and a 3.75 pH. It is the first vintage to contain Cabernet Sauvignon for several years. It has a very pure, Merlot-driven bouquet with black cherries, redcurrant and wild strawberry scents, just a hint of iris and incense in the background. The 70% new oak is nicely integrated here. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannin, a deep well of black and red fruit interwoven with allspice, truffle, white pepper and a little sage. This Vieux Château Certan manifests more complexity and profundity as it aerates, delivering genuine, spine-tingling mineralité on the persistent finish. It gains even more precision when I return to the property to re-taste it again. Tasted twice, ten days apart at the property." - Neal Martin

Château Canon

"The 2016 Canon makes it a double slam-dunk for head winemaker Nicolas Audebert and his team, as it is the second of two ethereal wines that will put the estate right at the top of the Saint Emilion tree. This year is a blend of 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc picked from 22 September until 10 October at 45 hectoliters per hectare. It delivers 14.02% alcohol and an IPT of 65. Matured in 65% new oak, it has a compelling bouquet with intense black cherry and blueberry fruit, a tincture of oyster shell, all with exquisite definition. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, and again, there is stunning, almost ineffable precision. It is attired in a seamless texture with real density yet weightlessness on the finish. The persistence on the aftertaste is extraordinary. I composed this entire tasting note after spitting out the wine, but I can still feel my mouth tingling now. The 2015 was magnificent, but could this 2016 surpass that? "The 2016 is more Canon in style, more classic," commented Nicolas, and he could be right, although intuition tells me that the 2015 might be a hair's breadth better. I would not refuse either if they were opened before me." - Neal Martin

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey, Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Baudines

"Firm reduction renders the nose impossible to assess at present. Otherwise the detailed, intense and solidly precise medium-bodied flavors also possess plenty of energy as well as evident minerality on the relatively dry, class and impressively persistent finish. Lovely juice." - Allen Meadows

Gaja Chardonnay Gaia e Rey (non OWC)

"The 2013 Gaia & Rey is another step towards a more restrained style, partly because of the cool vintage and a move towards general brightness in the wines. Lemon peel, white pepper, pear and white peach notes abound in a beautifully layered, vibrant Chardonnay from Gaja. Over the last few months the 2013 has begun to open up nicely. The main vineyard for the Chardonnay is a historic plot in Treiso that is now augmented by a steeper site in " - Antonio Galloni

Domaine Coche Dury, Bourgogne Blanc

"A pretty nose combines notes of apple, pear, floral and soft wood nuances. There is impressive richness to the succulent, round and seductive flavors that terminate in a refreshing and inviting finish thanks to a hint of salinity that emerges. Lovely." - Allen Meadows, Outstanding

information 2009

Tignanello

"The 2009 Tignanello is quite beautiful. Cedar, graphite, sweet herbs, licorice and leather add complexity to a core of highly expressive red fruits. The 2009 impresses for its energy, drive and focus. Today, the 2009 comes across as slightly understated relative to many recent vintages, especially 2007 and 2008. There is a silkiness and polish that is reminiscent of the 2004. Tignanello is 75% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc from vineyards in San Casciano Val di Pesa, one of the most evocative hillsides in all of Italy. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029" - Antonio Galloni

information 1989

Château Lafite Rothschild (Ex-Chateau)

"Tasted from magnum at Bordeaux Index, this is another confirmation that the 1989 is the Lafite to go for if choosing between 1988, 1989 and 1990. Here it has a typical Lafite nose with cedar, graphite and not so much menthol this time, but traces of wild mint. It blossoms with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and a sense of solidity that I find missing in the 1988 or 1990. It has a sense of femininity and grace: an undercurrent of sous-bois, bay leaf and a touch of sandalwood. Harmonious with good length, I feel that the 1989 is at its peak right at this very moment. Tasted December 2012." - Neal Martin

Domaine Dupont-Tisserandot, Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Cazetiers (Non OC)

"A very ripe extract of black pinot fruit nose liberally laced with cassis and warm earth nuances introduces rich, full and mouth coating flavors that are equally ripe, powerful, textured and explosive on the hugely long finish. This is impressive with a real sense of volume in the mouth and clearly built to age." - Allen Meadows, Outstanding

Louis Roederer Cristal Rose

"A wine of sublime delicacy and finesse, the 2009 Cristal Rosé is simply magnificent. The 2009 is surprisingly refined, silky and nuanced for a wine from a warm vintage. The red and floral-infused overtones are quite attractive, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that places it among the best new releases of the year. Over the years, I have had the chance to taste many vintages of Cristal Rosé, a Champagne that needs bottle age to be at its very best. I suspect that will be the case here as well. Don't miss it." - Antonio Galloni

Blanc de Lynch Bages

"The 2016 Blanc de Lynch Bages had been bottled the week before I tasted it. A blend of 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon and 18% Muscadelle. It has a straightforward bouquet with citrus lemon, grapefruit and touch of yellow flowers. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, taut and linear with pink grapefruit and touches of quince, a nice touch of sour lemon lending some tension towards the finish. Drink over the next three or four years." - Neal Martin

Tenuta San Guido, Guidalberto

"This wine is showing exceptionally well in this classic vintage. The 2016 Guidalberto (Cabernet Sauvignon and a smaller percentage of Merlot) opens to a full and generous bouquet and a beautifully rich and velvety appearance. This edition of Tenuta San Guido's mid-level wine offers a bigger aromatic profile, more texture and more volume as well. Dark cherry and blackberry segue to spice, tar, leather and sweet fruit at the end. The mouthfeel is elegantly shaped, silky and nuanced. This may well be the best vintage of Guidalberto I have yet to taste—and you can get this wine at a great price too." - Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Maison Philippe Pacalet, Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru

"Here the more expressive nose combines both upper and lower register aromas of airy and cool red currant and floral aromas with those of earth, humus and sauvage hints. The mouth feel is distinctly different than what is typically found with Mazoyères because rather than being big, bold and powerful it's almost delicate with a caressing aspect to the precise, concentrated and focused middle weight flavors that possess excellent length on the balanced finish. This is really a lovely effort though I wouldn't exactly describe it as typical." - Allen Meadows

Maison Philippe Pacalet, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

"This is all but aromatically mute and even aggressive swirling barely succeeds in revealing notes of earth, spice, lavender and red currant scents. There is outstanding power and punch to the voluminous and solidly concentrated broad-shouldered flavors that possess both excellent complexity and persistence on the youthfully austere finale. Like the virtually all of the wines in the range this beauty is absolutely going to require extended bottle age." - Allen Meadows

Maison Philippe Pacalet, Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru

"A notably more complex and distinctly cooler nose grudgingly offers up its ultra-fresh array of green apple, white flower, wet stone and grapefruit scents that are trimmed in subtle wood. There is excellent power and concentration to the very round but tension-filled broad-shouldered flavors that possess excellent size, weight and punch before culminating in a clean, dry and youthfully austere finale. This should be excellent in time though note well that it's going to need at least 5 years and reward up to 10." - Allen Meadows, Sweet spot
