Rene et Vincent Dauvissat - Chablis La Forest 1er Cru
Still a bit closed but with an attractive combination of white flowers and seashells on the nose and a very mineral palate. Outstanding structure is its strong suit: acidity balanced with concentration and followed by great length. Still intellectual vs. hedonistic. Last sip was the best sip of all. A good sign. Try again in a year.
Robert-Denogent - Pouilly-Fuisse Les Carrons Vieilles Vignes
Gold. Sherry like nose. PremOx? Well balanced but unusually aged. Will wait for next bottle before scoring
Dunn - Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
Triple decanted. Cedar, red fruits, concentration married with acidity....dare I say elegant?
Clos des Papes - Chateauneuf du Pape
Fine and lingering red fruit aromatics followed by a beautiful harmony of freshness, intensity and length. Drinking very well now. Glad I have more
Viret - Solstice VdP Porte de Mediterranee
Medium light red, gamey, fresh, slightly salty finish. Surprisingly good for a 2002; drinks well now. A summer red.
