Some wines from last week

2001 Fenocchio Barolo Villero:
Ruby, garnet rim. Rich and plummy nose that sson opened up to a more classical liquorice and cherries nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, a sweet and slightly alcoholic note on the palate, fruity, good length. 89

2001 Pira Barolo Vigna Rionda:
Ruby, brick rim. Liquorice, tar, caramel and prunes on the nose. Scented and more nuanced with air. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, lean and somewhat alcoholic palate, somewhat unbalanced, good length. 88

2008 Montecillo Crianza:
Ruby. Some anise, dark berries and vanilla on the nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, fairly easy going, good length. 85

2000 Marchesi di Gresy Barbaresco Martinenga Camp Gros:
Bright ruby, garnet rim. Anise, cherries, some tar and a slight floral touch that isn't quite roses. Elegant intensity on the nose. Fresh and quite high acidity, ripe tannins and and elegant and fairly transparent body and fruit that doesn't feel lean next to the structure. Savory. Lovely length. 92

2009 Pierre André Châteauneuf-du-Pape:
Ruby. Some barnyard notes (brett?) nettles and ripe blackberries on the nose. Pepper underneath. Freshish acidity, ripe and few tannins, some unripe ones as well sticking out, lacks complexity and is quite unpleasant. 70

2011 Château Canon:
Deepish ruby. Slightly scented and dark berries nose, quite fruity and elegant. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, a bit cool in the glass at the time of writing this note at 23.00 hours at night in the Norwegian mountains overlooking a magnificent sunset over the moors of Setesdal. Fresh fruity and elegantly lively, not the most complex but definitely quaffable. Lovely. 86

2000 Château Dalem:
Ruby with just a hint of a garnet rim. Starting out rustic and seemingly rough but after ten minutes showing a pure fruit much more reminiscent of my last bottle about two years back. Fairly ripe and slightly rich and ripe but never massive or opulent on the nose. Fresh acidty, ripe tannins, with a fruity and refreshing palate, somewhat leaner than the nose suggests, but elegant and quaffable. Refreshing and good length. 89

2011 Domaine de Christia Châteauneuf-du-Pape:
Bright ruby. Fruity, some spices over pure fruit nose, fairly easy going nose, but a pure feel to it. Freshish acidity, ripe tannins, a fruity and almost silky feel that is somewhat interupted by a slightly rough texture. Sweet, and warm finish but considering it's 15% on the label, fairly integrated. Good length. 86

2010 Gravette de Certan:
(2nd VCC) Deep ruby. Almost leaping out of the glass, a rich and deeper fruity nose, somewhat sweet and ripe, but not excessive. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, elegant and quite lively, again sweetish fruity and a bit raw textured at the moment, delicious now, especially with grilled meat, but will evolve nicely over the next ten years plus. 90
