what version? Love this guy’s wines.

Château Latour

Premier Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Tasted blind. Dark tawny color, totally opaque. Odd nose that has everyone shrugging what this could be. Notes of black fruit, spice, roses, some tar. I'm in Italy and drag a few others into similar guesses as my 89 Giacosa Falleto Riserva. Lot's of "wows" when it's revealed this is old Pauliac. This performed well through the day, it's in solid shape. The Bordeaux descriptors are easier to figure out once the label was revealed. — a month ago

Brut Blanc de Blancs 1er Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2006

Plug of green fruit to the nose, like a jolt of electric freshness. Salt, fruit and taffy notes. Lemon zest and lemon curd, walnut skin and light yellow curry. Some fresh baked cake too. What a wine — a month ago

Roses de Jeanne Creux d'Enfer Brut Rosé de Saignée Champagne Pinot Noir 2006

Poured out with a pink-copper hue and with bubbles that dissipated quickly. Very vinous. Expansive nose of tart red fruits, spices, roses, sea breeze, almond meal, and a touch of smoky incense. Weighty and grippy on the palate, with lots of chalky notes and a dash of savouriness. Finished long and phenolic. Clearly quite special.

An easy blind for all on the table - a Pinot-based rosé champagne with some age. I didn’t think it was an 06’, but the vintage was thrown in the guesses by a few on the table. I just thought it looked too elegant. I concluded that it was Prevost’s Facsimile, but clearly I was wrong though I didn’t think it was a bad guess. Haha.

I really enjoyed this, but KP, FK, and BR all thought it was more intellectual than pleasurable. They thought it was too phenolic and soft to coax one into having the next glass. I understood where they came from, but I just thought the positives far out-weighted the negatives. Layered and powerful, yet beautifully mineral!

Roses de Jeanne La Bolorée Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 2017

Disgorged 2021. I’ve been extremely fortunate the last few months, having had the opportunity to drink some great champagne. This was the best.
All the descriptors apply; electric, vinous, complex , intense, balance ,finesse, chalky, endless . A liquid massage of the oral cavity because it was so relaxing and enjoyable.

Grands Échézeaux Pinot Noir 1971

Haunting. Light and pure but with gorgeous depth of flavor and detail. Red berries, roses, just a touch of brown sugar as not too it’s age. Super fine and pretty and enchanting. Gorgeous — 3 months ago
