PurpleTeeth 88

2006 BV - Georges de Latour Private Reserve
This showed the classic Georges de Latour profile, showing black cherries, "scorched earth" (to use a Robert Parker-ism) and a little bit of brett, however the finish was relatively short for this wine. My guess is, in three or four years, this should become more complex and "settled", but the finish will always remain relatively short. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this "class in a glass."

2009 Arnoux & Fils - Gigondas Vieux Clocher
This bottle was not as acidic or "mealy" and showed SLIGHTLY more red fruit. Still, somewhat disappointing, considering the producer's otherwise positive reputation. Will continue to buy from this producer, but other vintages.

2012 Chateau Saint Roch - Cotes du Roussillon Vielles Vignes Blanc
Pleasantly surprised by this. It's light on the palate and its flavors are somewhat reserved at this point, but it's a complex, well balanced wine with plenty of Southern France character. Parker's description is perfect: "caramelized honeyed grapefruit, white currants and other assorted citrus jumps from the glass of this crisp, dry, medium-bodied white." Looking forward to drinking my other bottle.

2011 Pierre Coursodon - St-Joseph Silice
Don't believe the ABV disclosure on the label. This is well above 14.5% and drinks every bit like a California Central Coast Syrah. Won't buy again.

2013 Bellini - Vernaccia di San Gimignano
A touch leaner and more acidic than usual, but still a great pairing with linguine in clam sauce. Will continue to buy.
