2010 Chablis

Domaine G. Roblot-Marchand

Échezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2010

Nose has mashed blueberry, sliced black cherry, wet soil, wet leather, black currant leaves, roses, syrup of dark fruits and damp peppercorns.

Palate has violets, blueberry/black currant juice, fresh black cherry, (light) moist spice cake and ripe elderberry. Persistent tannins prove this wine is still youthful, with a long/rich finish and juicy fruits on display. In proper storage this can easily be enjoyed, 2025-30+.

Cork pulled for a slow oxidation of 5H then decanted 4H.

We're big advocates of Burgundy wines paired to Asian-style food, tonight again with Taiwanese Five Spice Pork (Lu Rou Fan | 卤肉饭) over Jasmin rice with lightly fried eggs from our private egg factory in the backyard, plus locally raised NY pork (Highland Farm, Old Chatham, NY). The wine displayed its youthful tannins alone, but great acidity with the meal pairing. Happy happy!

Château Léoville Poyferré

Saint Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Cleaning up my empty bottles (early spring cleaning)- this was probably the best wine I’ve had during the pandemic. Might have been April when I drank this and the details are fuzzy but the feeling of happiness remains clear — 12 days ago

Fantastic producer!

Canoe Ridge Vineyard

Reserve Horse Heaven Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


This 10 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Washington State is a nice surprise. Doesn't show its age at all, at this point.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate and good with food.

After a couple of hours of airtime it shows, red and black fruits with earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper, vegetables, herbs, graphite and black coffee.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy pomegranates.

Wine Enthusiasts 87 Points.

A little off balance, but has nice structure with a nice mouthfeel.

I've had it before, but at a younger age. Now it feels like a California Merlot, actually. Very interesting to try these kind of wines.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Aged in French oak barrels (30% new).

13.9% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

No. 77 Napa Valley Reserve Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Pretty color of dark ruby with a reddish/brick rim.

Great nose of black currants, blackberries, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, earth, eucalyptus, light vanilla, vegetables, mint, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black fruits, oak, licorice, spices, light vanilla, espresso, chocolates, earth, vegetables, Indian spices, wet leaves, dirt, black pepper, pencil lead, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with nice length and fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Mount Veeder in Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

This 11 year old is nicely balanced, at this point, and good by itself or with food. Will be good in the next 5 years.

I decanted it for 3 hours, which is when the tannins showed up.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Clos Floridene

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Ken Z

Drank 2\16\21

A great example of a decent wine in an excellent vintage.

Scent of plum, tobacco, mint, and leather. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry, earth, and a bit of pepper, with medium tannins that have softened and are well integrated at this point. Finish lasts around 50 seconds. Very enjoyable, but drink now before the fruit fades.

Maison Roche de Bellene

Vieilles Vignes Savigny-lès-Beaune Pinot Noir 2010

Good tension and minerality, cherries, crushed flowers and a hint of spices. The new wood regime is more noticeable on this bottle but does not detract from an overall really good experience. Goes extremely well with food. — 11 days ago

Château Rauzan-Ségla

Margaux Grand Cru Classé Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Crème de cassis, violets, graphite, earth, and eucalyptus. Poised and lithe on the palate but with a core of pen ink-like texture. Opening up beautifully after a 2+ hour decant. 60/37/2/1%. — 2 days ago

Block 5 Pinot Noir 2010

As per previous notes in 2019 and 2020. The pale colour belies the palate intensity. Red fruits, a confectionery note, rose petals. A good but not a great Block 5. Have the last one in a year or two. — 6 days ago

Kreuznacher Krötenpfuhl Kabinett Riesling 2010

2010 vintage. Very good, but probably waning, at least for my taste. Dried apricot, candied orange peel, tangerine, dried apple, clover. Good length and not too cloying. — 12 days ago
