08 Taupenot-Merme Charmes-Chambertin and 2000 Vega-Sicilia Unico, and two faulty bottles

2008 Taupenot-Merme Charmes Chambertin
Bright ruby. Red berries, some vanilla, spices, fruity, raspberries and starting sous bois. Elegant and fairly intense nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, youthful and slightly raw, younger than last bottle, needs air, bit tight even if fairly intense, long. 92

1990 Produttori del Barbaresco Barbaresco Riserva Pora
Four more oxidized/ too warm storage bottles from Philippson.

2000 Vega-Sicilia Unico
Served blind. Deep ruby, towards opaque. Rich, fruity, plums, blackberry jam, liquorice, slight coffee note, vanilla nose, intense. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, funny acidity, thin and out of balance, bit hollow mid palate, good length but not fully balanced. Will probably need time thinking of that stunning '85 a few weeks back. 88

1999 Clos des Papes
Ruby. Rich, bit cooked fruit, figs and plums, leaner palate, I think it's off, or don't they last longer?
