This ends the series of notes on the 10×20 tasting.

Post Tasting Dinner: White

  • 2010 Domaine Joblot Givry 1er Cru Clos de la Servoisine – France, Burgundy, Côte Chalonnaise, Givry 1er Cru
    On the nose there is grapefruit, some lemon and pear. The palate is medium bodied, with some nice fruit purity. There is good focus from a core of acidity and the finish is bright and quite persistent. A really nice wine. 91/100

Post Tasting Dinner: Burgundy Red

  • 2006 Dupont-Tisserandot Mazis-Chambertin – France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru
    Tea leaves, some lifted red floral notes, cherry and light spice notes. The palate is bright and appealing, it is young but actually quite open and interesting. While the fruit shines, there is also finesse to it and impressive length. 91/100

  • 2007 Domaine Henri Gouges Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Clos des Porrets St. Georges – France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
    Corked. NR

Post Tasting Dinner: Other Red

  • 2010 Abbots & Delaunay Carignane Alto Stratus – France, Languedoc Roussillon, Languedoc, Minervois
    Cinnamon, spice, tobacco and chocolate with some swirling floral aromatics. The palate shows both spice and savoury elements and is quite appealing. Drinking well now for my taste. 90/100

  • 1994 Lake’s Folly Cabernets – Australia, New South Wales, Hunter Valley
    Leather, cherry and blackberry on the nose. The palate is in great condition, there is medium bodied red fruit with a brightness to it that lifts the wine. There is also some complexity and depth, this is drinking well right now. This is a classically styled aged Hunter Valley red, though I probably would not have picked it as Cabernet if blind. 91/100
