A dinner in New York - August 18,  2007

 

2003 Gevrey Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, Vincent Girardin

13.5% alcohol, thin and lifeless. Lacking fruit or varietal character.

 

2002 Ruffino Riserva Ducale Oro Chianti Classico

Lovely.

 

2002 Rully 1ier cru “Les Cloux” Vincent Girardin

A bit too hot and heavy, but lusciously perfumed and enjoyable. Very New World in style.

 

1999 Palladio Brunello di Montalcino

13% but fresh, cool and elegant. Luscious chocolate bouche and strong finish.

 

2003 1ier cru “Les Folatieres”, Puligny Montrachet (whose?!)

14%, nice mineral nose, but too hot and sweet and lacking in acidity.

 

2001 Cabernet Sauvignon, Keenan, Napa

14.3% hot, short, dry, boring. No varietal character or taste, just alcoholic oak. Let it air and kept going back to it and it never improved.
