89 Issan, 75 Montrose, 95 Heidsieck Millenaires and more

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des MillenairesPale golden, tiny bubbles. Apples, pears, some yeast, light citrus and nutty notes, bakery, brioche, minerals, elegant and detailed nose. Fresh acidity, elegant mousse, refreshing, detailed, delicate, intense, layered, nuanced, long finish. Lovely balance. Just starting to show maturation. 95

1989 Château d'Issan
In neck fill, hardly soaked cork. Ruby, brick rim. Somewhat scented nose, some violets, cassis and with some air, prunes and figs, not the most intense but quite elegant nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, unfortunately a bit hollow fruit, somewhat lean and a bit astringent, lacks fruit and body to be a real charmer, good length. 89

1975 Château Montrose
In neck fill, soaked cork. Ruby, brick rim. Scented, cassis, light figs and leather note, liquorice, light mineral note, quite intense nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, lively, bit sweet and sour, leaner but enough fruit to hold the remaining texture, had a slightly fruitier bottle a few weeks back, still very fine bottle, long. 92

2010 Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru
Bright ruby. Lightly scented, elegant red berries nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity and lively but lacks details and complexity. Bit tight but seemingly nothing hiding behind here. 88

2011 Domaine Ponsot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes
Bright ruby. Scented, fairly intense red berries with a few darker berries as well, lovely nose. Faint spicey note. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, elegant, lovely fruit but could be more complex, light and fresh, long. 90

2008 Bott Geyl Sonnenglanz Grand Cru Pinot Gris Selection des Grains Nobles
Golden. Honey, apricots, floral, intense, some VA on the nose. Freshish acidity, fruity, leaner actually but fruity palate, not fully balanced, hollow, fuller, then hollow again, fresher finish, long. 89
