2002 Domaine Moillard Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Malconsorts"
Review Date: 04-06-2012
Just bought a few bottles of this on prearrival to try out-- I am very impressed by the structure of the wine, and the elegant balance that is shown from start to finish -- the tannin fades after about 20/30 minutes yielding plum fruit in the mid-palate finishing with enough tautness to hold up against a good roast chicken w/ spice-- This easily has another 5-10 years of joy -- Im buying more to cellar and continue to drink. I would consider this a "sweet spot" wine for the price-- a fine example of Vosne- Romanee--

2008 Domaine Laleure Piot Cote de Nuits Villages "Les Bellevues"
Review Date: 03-19-2011
Excellent bargain wine for those who want to explore some Burgundian flavor. A waft of peppercorns in the nose opens up the spicy entendre of a well -balanced wine with a touch of Pommard flavor. This still has some grip that makes me want to buy a few more bottles to stash away for a few years--Im buying more--

1994 Les Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe
Review Date: 03-19-2011
I just picked a bottle of this up and downed it with some corned beef hash tonight. I let it breathe about an hour before drinking and it was very pleasant- Very rustic in the nose, but the balance came into play with a little time in the glass. It had enough structure and grip to hold it together with some pleasant fruit in the mid-palate to pique your interest. I would highly recommend this for an everyday mature Bordeaux. It is a simple mature wine- but effective.

2005 Vincent Girardin Bourgogne Rouge "Emotion de Terroirs"
Review Date: 05-11-2010
This wine needs some time to soften up-- great tannins hold this wine up for a while before it relaxes into virtuosity through its nice structure and well-balanced flavors. I agree that it drinks well above its price point-- Im buying more and holding them a few years--
