Terres Dorees - Beaujolais L'Ancien Vieilles Vignes
Significantly improved over my last tasting in June, 2013; excellent development in bottle. Bright, fresh; classic Beaujolais in a clean, crisp style meant to be drunk younger than this producer's other beaujolais, with plenty of black cherry and red berry fruit. Delicious and fruity now, with more complexity and softer, more integrated tannins. Drinking well now but no rush.
Philippe Naddef - Mazis-Chambertin (Vieilles Vignes)
Consistent notes. Med.-dark color showing some age; lovely nose of ripe cherries and red & black fruit; good clean fruit flavors on the palate with good depth but not a lot of complexity; pure, concentrated; tannins are soft and integrated; mature but with 3 to 4 more years of good drinking ahead.
Chante-Cigale - Chateauneuf du Pape
Consistent notes. Nice dark youthful ruby color; full nose of smoky, earthy black fruit; quite intense fruit on the palate and still youthfully rustic with tannins beginning to soften; it is evolving slowly. A very good CDP that may benefit from more time and should drink nicely over the next several years.
Joseph Drouhin - Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru
Consistent notes; no further bottle development. Med. brick red color; lovely perfumed nose; lovely black & red fruit with good backbone, soft integrated tannins, moderate intensity but lacks complexity; long finish. Fully mature but will hold for a couple 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.
