The 65-year-old enfant terrible of the Mâconnais

News from Jancis Robinson - 2 uur 49 min geleden
A version of this article, about the couple responsible for the wines described in Long-lived treasures from Guffens' cellar, is published by the Financial Times. ‘My problem is that when I get drunk I say what I mean. And when I get very drunk I say what I don’t mean.’ With that threat, a wicked grin and his habitual wheezy snicker, Belgian

London – capital of situations vacant?

News from Jancis Robinson - 2 uur 49 min geleden
London is awash with hotel building sites. But who is going to work in them in post-Brexit Britain? The latest news in the hospitality media may seem somewhat unusual but in fact it is not all that surprising. Broadmoor Hospital, the mental institution once home to Peter Sutcliffe, aka The Yorkshire Ripper, and the Moors Murderer Ian Brady, is

News from Jancis Robinson - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:45
As the Australian bushfires continue to rage, we’re trying to find ways to help.

2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Chenevottes

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by OmiyaDrinker. Lemon, lemon peel, grapefruit, cream, chamomile, delicate honey. Rich fruit up front then transforms through the mid-palate to extreme stony mineral finish, laced with some residual sweetness. This is quite extreme on the rock-licking scale and I love it. High acidity. (93 pts.) - Tasted 1/17/2020.

2015 Ridge Chardonnay Monte Bello

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by rosenst1. PnP. Medium yellow. Rather odd nose, some reduction, some citrus. On the palate this is dominated by oak. A very different wine than what I tasted at the winery. Don't know if this will find a balance in about 10 years or just fall apart. Very disappointing. (85 pts.) - Tasted 1/17/2020.

Tasted by mmcdds. A little past for my tastes with the stewy notes coming to the fore, otherwise ok. - Tasted 1/17/2020.

2013 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by Jeremy Holmes. I reckon this had a touch of oxidation, showing a touch of coffee and flavours just planed off a little. There were meaty/musky notes, a core of powerful black cherry and good depth and length. I'm sure there are better bottles of this '13 out there. - Tasted 1/17/2020.

2007 Domaine de Marcoux Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by beatles. This is a powerhouse, and if you don't like Grenache firing on all cylinders, then stay away. I like it. While this is certainly a 2007, it is not unbalanced, and I do think everything will come together eventually - the fruit is very healthy. I will stay away from my own stash for at least couple of years. From IB. #X-pensiveWinos (95 pts.) - Tasted 1/17/2020.

1990 Château Léoville Barton

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by beatles. Lots of coffee and chocolate going on here - I was guessing right bank. Tasted over two days, and this was more balanced on day 2, ripe, yes, but very well structured, vertical and classic. Mature, tannins completely integrated,m but no signs of fatigue whatsoever.

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by MPAN. Dark rusty red; powerful somewhat jammy nose with lots of blackberry; extremely powerful wine, lots of alcohol, hefty, marmelade, strong fat acidic aftertaste; a monster wine; too much to my taste, perhaps it will mellow / integrate better over time (?) Was better some years ago, perhaps in an awkward phase, surely will come back (92 pts.) - Tasted 1/17/2020.

2015 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Grands-Echezeaux

CellarTracker TNs - vr, 17/01/2020 - 09:00
Tasted by beatles. Tasted over two days - and this is a majestic wine; intense, clean Pinot-fruit with immense elegance, albeit still very much a 2015 with it's quite concentrated. Like the perfect, powerfull sportsman with every muscle ready, every mucle tight - and everything i harmony. #X-pensiveWinos (97 pts.) - Tasted 1/17/2020.
