Frederic Esmonin - Ruchottes-Chambertin
Brick/mahogany red color; slightly funky nose of dried fruit (fig, prune, raisin) with gamey/meaty notes; similar flavors; decent intensity of fruit; soft, integrated tannins. A good but not grand cry quality Burgundy that probably won't improve further. Drink now and over the next 3 or 4 years.
Patrick et Christophe Bonnefond - Cote Rotie Les Rochains
Consistent notes. Good deep crimson red; full rich syrah nose with touch of leather, cedar, and oak; lovely and rich on the palate with intense fruit paired with nice acid balance and integrated tannins; long, elegant finish. Drinking well now and should continue to do so for several more years.
Consistent notes. Med.-dark ruby color; lovely nose of spicy black fruit; rich and smooth on the palate - very Merlot, lush silky fruit, full and elegant with good acid structure and well integrated tannins, long elegant finish. More opulant than the 1990. Ready but will hold for several years.
Louis Jadot - Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc En Caradeux Clos de la Croix de Pierre 1er Cru
Made from Premier Cru fruit from an 8 acre vineyard in Pernand-Vergelesses (mostly planted w/Pinot Noir - only 16% of the production in the village consists of Chardonnay) owned exclusively by Louis Jadot (making this a monopole). Consistent notes. Brilliant golden-yellow color. Rich, lush, and elegant reminiscent of a good 1er cru Chassagne-Montrachet from the likes of a Marc Morey, only slightly leaner. Excellent definition and balance; good complexity; fine long finish. Drinking beautifully now and should continue to do so for several more years.
Vieux-Telegraphe - Chateauneuf du Pape (La Crau)
Consistent notes with cont'd development in bottle. Med.-dark brick red; nose of black fruit, earth, pepper, & mushroom; very rich on the palate with good acidity & balance; quite firm but the structure is not aggressive and the tannins have softened & integrated; very long finish. Minimal sediment. Decanted an hour before drinking. Lovely now but will hold and may cont. to develop.
