Yes @Peter van den Besselaar my wife and I just came back from the Rothko exhibition in Paris, bought this champagne from a fantastic shop in the 13th arr. called Delicatessen Cave, well worth a visit 🙌

Les Saint Georges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2019

2019 vintage. Not decanted. Tasted after being open one hour. Light body. Decent frontal concentration that glided and dimmed appropriately to the finish. Nice sustenance throughout without being overbearing in any particular facet. Last tasted 9.24.23 and it was a trip and a bit unbalanced (8.9). This was worlds better. 3.15.24. — a month ago

Private Reserve Georges de Latour Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1984

A slightly off hint of butterscotch on the nose. Dense dark fruit with stone and poised. A shame about the nose as the fruit is great — a month ago

There are worse ways to start a Saturday then tasting & talking wine with Tor Kenward & Andy Beskstoffer having the 1980 BV George Latour Private Reserve & multiple vintages of Tor. Wine 94 technically but age & style 96. The overall experience is a 10.

These bottles came from his cellar so they are perfect. So silky smooth elegant. Beautifully ripe; blackberries, black raspberries, plum, dark cherries, understated baking spices, fresh & used tobacco, sandalwood, raspberry, limestone powder, fine, dark spice, bright, withering dark & red florals, excellent acidity, sheer, balance, elegance and perfectly finish that lasts a full minute.

Andy Beckstoffer sold fruit for $150 a ton in the late 1970’s, early 80’s. Today, $50,000 plus a ton and a percentage of the producers bottle price.

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Musigny Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1970

1970 vintage. Good not great fill. Cork an absolute mess. Decanted and tasted after an hour. Wow. Light body but still going strong. Big spice and orange peel components. Excellent length of finish and obvious class in the glass. 3.5.24. — a month ago
