Oddero - Nebbiolo Langhe
Solid wine, 15 years young from the 1999 vintage. Cabernet from Piedmonte region of Italy. Tastes like a Bordeaux, but with more acidity and mineral character you see in Nebbiolo from these parts of Italy. Plenty of life left. 5-7 years easy or more. Fine, but firm tannins frame the finish of dried currants and cherry with some grilled herbs
Brovia - Barbera d'Alba Brea
Amazing what a week later after Coravin and some air can do. Acidity preservation at its best. The wine is longer, with deeper aromas and flavor. Front to back of the palate this is complete where it was not initially when first opened a week ago.
Benjamin Leroux - Meursault 1er Cru Les Poruzots
As lovely as a I recall when I was first mesmerized by this wine. Saline, citrus, tons of minerality and well integrated oak fuse together nicely to bring an elegant and pure expression of Meursault.
Screaming good value here at about $30, this delivers all the goods you want from a young Bordeaux, especially in this special vintage.
Pascal Marchand - Corton
The sun shines in this bottle from a warm vintage. Fleshy, the ripe tannins and Classic Corton structure are a nice foil so you can enjoy this sooner than normal.
