Day one at the Baron of Brøttum tasting, 1967 Suduiraut stole the show



1990 Château Clinet:
Bright ruby, redcurrants rim. Closed first, but fairly quickly gorgeously scented nose, layered and complex, flirting plums and blueberries. After an hour, some cedar and a touch of tobacco. Licorice and some vanilla, transparent feel. fresh acidity, ripe tannins, still young and slightly biting finish. Lovely and pure fruit, long. 95

2007 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon:
Towards lemon yellow. Floral, somewhat scented, butter, some minerals, a bit fatt style for Clavoillon and somewhat fatter than last bottle. After an hour, less fat. Still gorgeous acidity, superb balance, creamy texture, refined and long. 93


1999 Domaine d'Auveany Puligny-Montrachet En La Richarde:
1224 bottles made. Pale golden. Nuts, some butter, Meursault like minerals, citrus and apples. Tighter palate, way tighter palate, fresh acidity, nose is fat and almost rich, palate is focused and almost narrow. Minerals and sublime balance, refined and together, nuanced and stunning length. 94

2009 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles:
Pale lemon yellow. Some floral notes, elegant citrus, minerals and apples. Nuanced and layered. Fresh acidity, elegant and somewhat rich Pucelles, creamy and slightly fat, rounded. long. 92


2002 Dunn Howell Mountain:
Deep ruby, ruby rim. Somewhat scented, rich and fruity, cassis and touch of plums. On the ripe side. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, refreshing and lively, a bit warm alcohol, excellent body and balance, long. 92

1950 Château L'Evangile:
Schröder & Schyler bottling. Top shoulder fill. Cork was easilly pushed into the bottle. Ruby with garnet rim. Plums, figs and dust. Fresh acidity, tannins gone, lean and tired, to warm storage. Bruun Rasmussen so called excellent condition wine. In my world this is beyond faulty. Warm storage. This auction house needs a course.


1962 Château Cheval Blanc:
Danish bottling. Corked. 

1964 Vega Sicilia Unico:
Medium shoulder fill. Ruby, garnet rim. A very far cry from my last excellent bottle, this one from Fine & Rare was dusty and hollow. What a dissapointment. Not close to fine and rarelly bad.


1986 Château Ducru-Beaucaillou:
Ruby, thin garnet rim. Scented, touch of tobacco, cassis and a touch of floral notes. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, elegant fruit, slightly less fruity than last bottle, lacks a bit of complexity. Good length. 88

1988 Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste:
Ruby with garnet rim. Cassis, licorice, touch of plums and dark berries. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, refreshing, a bit lean finish, refreshing. Not that complex. 88


1986 Château Cheval Blanc:
Ruby, thin garnet rim. Exotic, some prunes and floral, lovely nose if not that intense. Cassis and plums, leathery eleganse. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, fairly focused but also a bit lean for Cheval, refreshing, elegant but lacks a bit body, especially for CB. Somewhat leaner than last bottle. 93+

1997 Château Haut-Brion Blanc:
Towards golden. Smokey minerals, citrus, focused and a bit intense, even if a bit lean. Grapefruit and honey, touch of wax. Fresh acidity, elegant body, refreshing and lovely, elegant citrus mineraly finish. Long. 94


2008 Blain -Gagnard Bâtard-Montrachet:
Pale golden. Apples, minerals, ever so slightly smoky, butter and some vanilla. Somewhat more open bottle than the one last week. Layered and nuanced, almost floral, elegant and balanced, lovely and even if long, could have been longer. It is a Bâtard remember. 93 

1967 Château Suduiraut:
Top shoulder fill. Golden with greenish tint. Apricots, caramel, raisins, touch of vanilla, apples, minerals, goes on and on. Fresh acidity, lively, elegant as few, not as caramelly as 1967 Yquem, refined and complex, exceptional length,  refined and subdued, paradise in a glass. 98
