89 Las Cases, 82 Gruaud Larose, 00 Mugneard Richebourg and more

2002 Lilbert Cramant Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs
Pale lemon yellow, small bubbles. Apples, some brioche, pears, fruity nose. Fresh acidity, elegant mousse, rounded, sweetish and fruity, easy to like. 90

2007 Domaine de Chevalier blanc
Pale lemon yellow. Peach, grapefruits, minerals, vanilla, pears, intense, some nuts. Fresh acidity, fresh, lively, grapefruit, minerals, smoky, detailed, refreshing, nuanced, long. 95

2009 Matrot Meursault 1er Cru Charmes
Pale golden. Smoky, minerals, nuts, apples, light oxidised note, acetone. Fresh acidity, fruity, rounded, bit flat. Too mature.

1989 Château Léoville Las Cases
Served blind. Ruby. Scented, red berries, fruity, bit off and actually somewhat weird first but sharpening up with air. Still not quite up to scratch. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, somewhat hollow, edgy, light herbal note. With more air it builds body and fruit, quite strange to see how much it gains, still on the firm side, long. Ads with even more air, needs an hour plus i decanter. 95

2000 Mongeard-Mugneret Richebourg
Served blind. Somewhat cloudy medium ruby. Jumps out of the glass, raspberries, massively scented, light touch of herbs, floral notes, detailed, nuanced, minerals, some spices, not as linear and transparent as some, but highly seductive. Slight sous bois far back with air. Fresh acidity, playful and lively, ripe tannins, maybe ever so slightly unripe and firm. Mouthwatering if a touch edgy, outgoing, long. Coffee notes in the long finish. 94-95

1985 Château Soutard
Ruby, garnet rim. Flat and oxidative nose, flat palate.

2011 Vincent Girardin Corton-Charlemagne
Served blind. Towards lemon yellow. Pop corn note, minerals, intense and up front nose, minerals, flinty and smoky, apples, pears and ever so slight peach note, vanilla, light spice touch, roses and hotel soap far back. Fresh acidity, lively, intense attack, then a short break before massive flood wave of flavours, popcorn, butter, nuts, minerals, flinty, detailed, nuanced, layered, rich yet subtle, impressive. Long. 94

1982 Château Gruaud Larose
Extreme crystals in the neck even, lots of sediments. Flirting nose, detailed, elegant, nuanced, refined, playful, floral, scented, red and darker fruits, minerals, leather,  seductive as few, superb nose. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fresh, fruity, detailed, nuanced, elegant, layered, refreshing, red and dark fruits, forest floor, anise, anise, very long. 96

2004 Château Meyney
Ruby. Spices, dark fruits, exotic, blueberries, cassis, vanilla, youthful nose still. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fruity, fresh, lively, rounded, red berries, cassis, vanilla, still structured, some leather and tobacco, good length. 89
