2010 Alain Chavy Puligny-Montrachet:

Towards golden, tiny bubbles. Maturing nose of oxidized apples, brioche, yeast, minerals, deep and intense. Fresh acidity, almost sharp, rounded mousse, not too fruity but intense flavours, lovely balance, some burnt nuts, long. A more evolved bottle than the last two. 94

1995 Castell'In Villa Chianti Classico Riserva:

2001 Ornelaia
(Magnum) Deep ruby. Fruity, intense, cassis, plums touch, needs air to open, nuanced, some vanilla, scented and a hint of cigars. Ever so slight herbal note. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, biting tannins, gripping even, young still, long. 92

2006 Château Haut-Monplaisir Prestige: (Cahors)
Opaque. Rich, fruity but with a vegetal note beneath. Sweet and liquorice. Lazyish acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, a bit alcoholic and warm, good length. Fruity but a bit simple. 86

2008 Château Haut-Bailly:
Tried from three different glasses, quite a different experience. In Riedel Vinum Chianti, scented, fruity, cassis, some minerals, quite intense and nuanced. In the Riedel Vinum Bordeaux it seems more subdued on all notes and in Zalto Universal it's just so fruity, but no nuances. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, ever so slightly lean, minerals, cassis and a slight herbal note, long. Rest of the note from Riedel Vinum Chianti. 92
