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.
Casisano-Colombaio - Brunello di Montalcino
Consistent notes, showing further development in bottle. Inky dark red color. Elegant and stylish w/lovely structure, balance, and complexity; soft tannins, black fruit; long complex finish. Good bottle development. Delicious now and for the next several years.
Leroy (Domaine) - Vosne-Romanee
Consistent notes. Very light red color; amazingly exotic nose of asian spices and musky, earthy notes typical of Leroy's top domaine wines; sadly a bit disappointing on the palate with limited, somewhat unidimensional fruit typical of the vintage. Soft integrated tannins, silky texture. Leroy's expert hands are evident but the fruit just isn't there. An enjoyable wine nonetheless.
