Morgon Vieilles Vignes - Bouland, Daniel

75 IB 1 0 160 -
Tasting Notes for Morgon Vieilles Vignes - Bouland, Daniel, 2012:
The 2012 Morgon Vieilles Vignes comes courtesy of 60-year-old vines. It has an understated bouquet of raspberry, tilled earth and briary scents that unfold in the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh with a slightly higher acidity than the Corcelette, but with more tension and vibrancy on the finish. This is another superb Morgon from Daniel Bouland. Drink now-2020. Readers should peruse Issue 190 for more information on Daniel Boulandís domaine. He cultivates four hectares of vines in Douby, Cote de Py and Delys around Morgon. His fruit is picked entirely by hand and is vinified whole cluster. These were absolutely superb expressions of traditional Beaujolais: serious wines that I suspect will age as well as their more expensive counterparts further north in the Cote de Nuits. They represent outstanding value in the current market and are consumed best with 4 to 7 years of bottle age. The Wine Advocate June '14.

Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes - Grand Veneur

75 IB 0 6 - 117
Tasting Notes for Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes - Grand Veneur, 2010:
A monumental effort meriting a perfect score, the super-rich 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a 4,000-bottle blend of 50% Grenache, 40% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah from 55- to 105-year-old vines and was aged for 18 months in small oak. The wine offers majestic blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with kirsch, licorice and subtle Provencal herbs in the background. It is akin to chewing meat in the mouth given its viscosity and thickness. This utterly amazing wine comes close to being over the top, but it pulls back just in time. A massive Chateauneuf du Pape (even for a 2010), it needs 5-6 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. Bravo! The Wine Advocate Oct '12

Petrus

75 IB 0 1 - 2100
Tasting Notes for Petrus, 2010:
The harvest at Petrus took place between September 27 and October 12, and the 2010 finished at 14.1% natural alcohol, which is slightly lower than the 2009's 14.5%. The 2010 reminds me somewhat of the pre-1975 vintages of Petrus, a monster-in-the-making, with loads of mulberry, coffee, licorice and black cherry notes with an overlay of enormous amounts of glycerin and depth. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and more tannic and classic than the 2009, this is an awesome Petrus, but probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. It should last at least another 50 or more.

The harvest at Petrus took place between September 27 and October 12, and the 2010 finished at 14.1% natural alcohol, which is slightly lower than the 2009's 14.5%. The 2010 reminds me somewhat of the pre-1975 vintages of Petrus, a monster-in-the-making, with loads of mulberry, coffee, licorice and black cherry notes with an overlay of enormous amounts of glycerin and depth. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and more tannic and classic than the 2009, this is an awesome Petrus, but probably needs to be forgotten for 8-10 years. It should last at least another 50 or more.

Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige - Sabon, Roger

75 IB 1 0 325 -
Tasting Notes for Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige - Sabon, Roger, 2009:
The monumental 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a creative blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest grapes such as Vaccarese, Muscardin, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Counoise. Most of the fruit is aged in foudre, with the Syrah and Mourvedre components aged in new oak. The fabulous 2009 offers an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of charcoal, burning embers, black currants, soy, Asian plum sauce, blackberries and kirsch. The wine's complexity is nearly off the charts. Moreover, once it hits the palate, the high glycerin, silky tannins, low acidity and luxurious concentration provide a compelling drinking experience. This spectacular Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the wine's of the vintage. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years. The Wine Advocate Oct '11.

Chateauneuf du Pape - Clos St Jean

75 IB 1 0 225 -
Tasting Notes for Chateauneuf du Pape - Clos St Jean, 2009:
A sleeper of the vintage, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is much less expensive than the other cuvees and represents a noteworthy buy. Classic kirsch liqueur, roasted Provencal herb and sandy, loamy soil characteristics are found in this dense, opulent, voluptuously textured wine that is on a much faster evolutionary track than the 2010. It should drink well for a decade. The Wine Advocate Oct '11.

Tasting Notes for Smith Haut Lafitte, Magnums, 2009:
There was a little VA on the nose of this barrel sample, otherwise it provided an excellent intensity of warm raspberry, Chinese dried plum, earth and game aromas plus a whiff of sandalwood. The rich, fleshy, full bodied palate has crisp acidity and very fine, firm tannins. Long finish.

Hosanna

75 IB 0 6 - 175
Tasting Notes for Hosanna, 2009:
A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this is one of the more ethereal and compelling efforts of the vintage. The 2009 Hosanna possesses great intensity, extraordinary balance, purity, and density, and a remarkable perfume of licorice, black fruits, spring flowers, incense, and Christmas spices. The wine hits the palate with full-bodied power, displaying silky texture, viscous, opulent mid-palate, high levels of glycerin, and considerable, but well-concealed tannins. In many ways, this is what some of the greatest 1982s tasted like (the tannins were virtually impossible to find at this stage). It should last 25-30 years. Kudos to Christian Moueix! (Tasted once.)

Latour

75 IB 1 0 3450 -
Tasting Notes for Latour, 2008:
Damn me for saying it, but I actually think the 2008 Latour will turn out to be even better than the 2005 or 2000. I still have a weakness for the 2003, but it is somewhat atypical in how forward, fleshy, and opulent it is. The 2008 Latour is a more concentrated version of the 1996, and that’s saying something. The harvest took place between September 29 and October 7 for the Merlot, but the Cabernet Sauvignon finished around the 19th of October. The natural alcohol of 13.48% may be the highest ever achieved at Latour. The final blend is 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Moreover, in a low yield year, only 40% of the production made it into the grand vin, so even with the global economic crisis, this is going to be a tightly allocated wine — with under 10,000 cases produced. A fabulous infant, it exhibits an inky/purple color as well as extraordinarily pure notes of creme de cassis, crushed rocks, and flowers. The fact that there is no hint of oak is a testament to the vintage’s density and richness. The wine possesses full-bodied power as well as a boatload of tannin, and it is even more backward than Lafite Rothschild. Nevertheless, the hallmark of a great wine and potentially top-notch vintage is the sweetness of the tannin, and that is evident. The wine is young, unevolved, and incredibly pure (another hallmark of this unexpectedly magical vintage) with an amazingly long, textured, layered finish. It should be forgotten for 5-8 years, and consumed over the following four decades. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Tasting Notes for Petit Village, 2008:
While this estate’s wines never seem to be as good as one hopes (I have still have memories of the 1982 dancing across my palate), the 2008 has turned out reasonably well. It possesses sweet herb and coffee-infused black cherry, caramel, and cola-like fruit, medium body, a supple texture, and a very good finish. Enjoy this consumer-friendly Pomerol over the next 10-12 years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Haut Batailley

Tasting Notes for Haut Batailley, 2008:
More similar to a St.-Julien than a Pauillac, the 2008 Haut-Batailley reveals delicious, sensual, black raspberry and black cherry fruit. It does not possess the density or power of other Pauillacs, but it is round, ripe, and seductive with medium body, nicely integrated wood, juicy tannins, and fresh acids. It should drink well for 12+ years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Tasting Notes for La Conseillante, 2008:
The beautiful 2008 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color as well as jammy red and black fruit, crushed rock and floral notes. If this were a Burgundy, one might think of it as a grand cru Musigny. With excellent texture, medium to full body and stunning purity as well as nobility, this fascinating Pomerol should drink well for 15-20 years. The Wine Advocate May 2011.

L'Eglise Clinet

75 IB 1 0 1200 -
Tasting Notes for L'Eglise Clinet, 2008:
So many great wines have emerged from this property administered with meticulous care and obvious passion by proprietor Denis Durantou that it hard to say the 2008 is better than some of the previous wines produced over the last decade. It is more backward and less evolved than some of the other Pomerols in this vintage, but the wine boasts an inky/ruby/purple color as well as an exceptionally pure bouquet of creme de cassis, black raspberry liqueur, charcoal, and a hint of black truffles. Dense and pure with massive concentration yet undeniable elegance and precision (because of the fresh acids), this full-bodied effort, despite the high level of Merlot in the blend, requires 7-10 years of patience. It should evolve for 30-40 years after bottling, and will be fascinating to compare with some of the legends produced here over the last ten years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Larcis Ducasse

75 IB 1 0 320 -
Tasting Notes for Larcis Ducasse, 2008:
For decades to come, the 2008 Larcis Ducasse will undoubtedly be compared with this estate’s immortal 2005. I did not expect such a blockbuster effort from this St.-Emilion property, but low yields of 25 hectoliters per hectare and a harvest that lasted from October 9th to October 20th produced a wine with the highest alcohol level, 14.2%, ever achieved. Consultants Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt seemed to have coaxed just about everything one could from this extraordinary terroir. The final blend of 78% Merlot and 22% Cabernet Franc has resulted in an opaque purple-colored wine exhibiting a sweet, almost intoxicating perfume of blue, red, and black fruits intermixed with notions of spring flowers, forest floor, and damp earth. Full-bodied and opulent with an outrageously pure, textured mouthfeel, sweet tannin, and slightly more acidity than the monster 2005, this is a tour de force as well as one of the most compelling wines of the vintage. Given the global economic crisis, I suspect the price should be one-third to one-half of the 2005. In short, that means readers should buy, buy, buy. The 2008 should be approachable after bottling (because of the sweetness of the tannins as well as the extraordinary ripe fruit), and evolve for 20-30 years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Full-bodied and opulent with an outrageously pure, textured mouthfeel, sweet tannin, and slightly more acidity than the monster 2005, this is a tour de force as well as one of the most compelling wines of the vintage. Given the global economic crisis, I suspect the price should be one-third to one-half of the 2005. In short, that means readers should buy, buy, buy. The 2008 should be approachable after bottling (because of the sweetness of the tannins as well as the extraordinary ripe fruit), and evolve for 20-30 years. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Lafleur

75 IB 1 0 3300 -
Tasting Notes for Lafleur, 2008:
The 2008 Lafleur, a blend of 54% Cabernet Franc and 46% Merlot, offers extraordinarily pure notes of raspberries, kirsch, flowers, and subtle forest floor nuances. A wine of exceptional purity and full-bodied intensity that remains light on its feet because of its fresh acids and lower pH, it represents a denser, more complete version of the 1988 and 1996. Built for the long haul, purchasers will need at least a decade of patience before pulling a cork. It should keep for 40-50 years thereafter. The tiny Lafleur vineyard, which was harvested between October 8-14, produced a wine with an atypically high percentage of Cabernet Franc. Proprietor Guinadeau stated that the Cabernet Franc was among the finest he had ever harvested. Robert Parker Wine Advocate April 2009

Chateauneuf du Pape La Cote Ronde - Autard, Paul

75 IB 1 0 300 -
Tasting Notes for Chateauneuf du Pape La Cote Ronde - Autard, Paul, 2007:
The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee La Cote Ronde (a blend of equal parts Grenache and Syrah from 60-year-old vines, with the Syrah enjoying malolactic fermentation in barrel and aging in new oak) possesses smoky, roasted herb, seaweed wrapper, licorice, cassis, and black cherry characteristics. The oak component is beautifully integrated, and the wine has superb concentration, a full-bodied style, and a true Chateauneuf du Pape personality in spite of the new oak. It should drink well for 15+ years. The Wine Advocate Oct '09.
