Cain - Cain Five
This still has some kick to it. Ripe dark berry and plum fruit. Notes of olive and bramble. Tannins still have some grip. Should soften with more time. Medium to full-bodied. Decent length on the finish.
Bernard Moreau - Chassagne-Montrachet Grandes Ruchottes 1er Cru
Nice concentration, weighty, lush mouthfeel. Flavors of apple pie, pear and quince with mineral notes. A little closed. Good length to the finish.
Jean Laurent - Brut Rose
This is a wonderful rose Champagne. Delicious red and dried berry notes. Concentrated, serious Champagne that is also, refined, balanced and elegant. Flavors follow through on a lengthy finish.
Gosset - Vintage Brut Celebris
Delicious mature Champagne. Consistent with previous notes. Full-bodied, concentrated and complex. Wonderful, long finish,
Solitude - Chateauneuf du Pape
This seems a bit late in its maturity, slightly past its peak. Subtle layer of dark berry fruit underneath flavors of leather, cigar tobacco, forest floor and barnyard. Complex and a bit funky. Concentrated with a nicely flavorful and lengthy finish.
