2009 Fonreaud, Listrac (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-22-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Stephen Tanzer hit the nail on the head -- I didn't know what "coffee and oak torrefaction" tasted like until I tried the 2009 Fonreaud. Wine Spectator was also right about the black tea. Hmm, coffee, oak, and black tea -- what's not to like? Maybe this needs a couple more years to smooth the rough tannins.
Drink from 2013 to 2015

2009 Poitevin, Médoc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-19-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The 2009 Poitevin opens with red-fruit flavors of pomegranate, cherry, and hard candy, with vegetal tannins that were largely resolved after a recorked bottle was refrigerated over night. I would decant this or give it a couple of hours to breathe.

2009 Bellevue-La-Randée, Bordeaux (out of stock)  
Review Date: 4-19-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
There is plenty of fruit and tannins, but on first tasting the dominant flavor was vegetal. An unfinished, recorked bottle improved after a night in the refrigerator, so it should help to decant this for a couple hours before drinking.

2009 Edge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (out of stock)

The 2009 Edge is a pleasant Napa Cab, but it's unremarkable. Wine Enthusiast got a little carried away.

2009 Poitevin, Médoc (1.5L) (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-30-2012

Red fruit flavors of pomegranate and cherry, with slightly vegetal tannins that remind me of cab franc from the Loire region. This benefits from decanting.

2009 Georges Duboeuf Moulin-à-Vent (Flower Label) (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-28-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Very decent. In addition to dark berry-like flavors, there are some tannins and and a note of earthy bitterness. In a blind tasting one might think this was a Grenache rather than Gamay. At this price it puts those thin, sour, metallic Beaujolais Nouveaux to shame.

2008 Von Hovel Oberemmeler Hutte Riesling Spatlese (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-24-2012

Pleasant, with crisp green apple notes and good acidity. On the lighter side for a Spatlese.

2009 Domaine Regnier Saumur Champigny (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-6-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
I'm usually a fan of Loire cab franc, but the 2009 Domaine Regnier is on the tannic and vegetal side, with artichoke or asparagus-like notes.

Sweet, fragrant, and delicate, with a lingering finish.

2009 Mylord "Cuvée Milady" Bordeaux (out of stock)  
Review Date: 3-5-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The first time I tried it, I found the tannins a bit bitter and thought they overwhelmed the fruit. A month later I tried another bottle and enjoyed it more, so maybe it just needs a few more months for the elements to knit. There is quite a lot here for the price.

2007 La Maialina Chianti Classico Riserva (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-14-2012

Decent, but the predominant flavor is wood. For a chianti classico riserva this doesn't have much fruit.

2006 La Gatte Cuvee Butte, Bordeaux (out of stock)  
Review Date: 12-31-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The 2005 vintage of La Gatte La Butte was terrific. The 2006 is decent but the fruit is a bit thin. Although not a wine to cellar, it's a solid value at $12.

Ausleses are supposed to last for at least 20 years, but the 1997 Bollig-Lehnert Drohner Hofberger is fading.

Crisp, tart, and zingy -- reminds me of Chablis. This is the best white Burgundy I have tasted in the under $17 range.
