Clos des Fees - Herve Bizeul
Upon opening, nose of alcohol, fruit, chocolate and espresso. In mouth, seems pale, there is a ground layer, earthy and a little chocolate. But upper layer of more elegant flavor is lacked. Already peaked? Silky and sweet tannin by the way. No improvement through 1 hr decanting.
Penfolds - Shiraz Bin 128
A typical Shiraz. Very strong nose of spice upon opening. On palate, plummy and spicy. Silky tannin. After 2 hrs decanting, begin to show some floral aroma and some vanilla, cherry on palate. Still a young wine. Need time to age.
Clos du Bois - Merlot Sonoma County
Very fruity. Layers of plum, oak and mocha, but all very thin. A pleasant wine yet not much to say about.
Comtes Lafon - Montrachet
medium golden. aroma of honey and wood. strong acid and touch of honey, apple, wood and mineral but very smooth. the finish is fruity and sweet. overall, a terrific white.
Ronciere - Chateauneuf du Pape
Aroma of smoke and espresso. Hint of mineral and plum. A simple wine. Lack of complexity.
