Bosquet des Papes - Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chantemerle (Vieilles Vignes)
Med. ruby color with slight mahogany rim; lovely spicy mixed fruit, cedar, sandalwood, smoke, and leather nose that follows through on the palate with similar flavors; excellent complexity and intensity; and a very long finish. Fully mature and drinking well now and will continue to do so for a few more years. Elegant for a CDP. Lovely.
Claudie Jobard - Rully Montagne La Folie
Consistent notes. Full rich nose of tropical fruit and a touch of oak; lovely entry on the palate with plenty of fruit yet crispness and balance; a bit rustic but in a sensual way; really quite delicious for a villages Rully and a step up from her straight villages; long finish.
Pol Roger - Vintage Brut (Extra Cuvee de Reserve)
Wonderful Champagne, still vibrant and vigorous. It has developed nicely in bottle, now obviously fully mature but still drinking well. Pale to medium gold color and ric, elegant fruit. Plenty of fine bubbles; complex, yeasty/creamy yet w/plenty of high notes; long finish. Drink over the next couple of years.
Henri Gouges - Nuits St Georges Les Vaucrains 1er Cru
Consistent notes. Pretty, med.-dark ruby to mahogany red color; full nose of bing cherries and red & black fruit, leather, spice & earth; firm on the palate with prominent acid, tannins are softening, plenty of fruit to provide balance; long finish. Very good but not fine - I've had better Burgundies from Gouges. Should continue to drink well for a few more years.
Corsin - Pouilly-Fuisse Vieilles Vignes
Consistent notes. Light to med. gold color; complex nose of peach, citrus, ginger and mineral; Rich, intense, lush fruit yet dry on the palate, with lots of complex old vine fruit, spice and mineral; crisp with good acidity; long lovely finish. A terrific Pouilly-Fuisse that should drink well for several more years.
