NV Domaine Chandon - Brut Classic
Excellent value. Dry, bare-bone classic sparkling wine, imitating Moet and Chandon NV. This is definitely not a complex wine, but very pleasant and balanced. Use to make kir and belini, or drink by itself.

2004 El Coto - Coto de Imaz Gran Reserva
What a pleasant surprise. beautiful nose displaying vanilla, cedar, cigar and ripe black berries. Pleasant on mid palate - healthy acidity and strong, but elegant tannins. Abrupt finish. For under $20 - incredible value!

2008 J Lohr - Chardonnay Arroyo Seco
Classic oakey California Chardonnay with little character. Single-dimensional, primitive wine, representing excellent value for casual consumption. Not a Mersault. Not much to write home about.

1985 Cos d'Estournel
Lef in decanter for 1 hour before serving. Beautiful aromas of blackcurrant, strawberry jam, toast and dust. Higher, but pleasant acidity. Soft, withering tannins. Pleasant, soft and relatively long finish. Wine is into its retirement years. Very nice, mature experience.

1983 Margaux
Bought on auction a year ago. In decanter for one hour before serving in a company of great friends. Ruby red bordering on purple, without signs of brown. Very intricate and elegant bouquet, featuring ripe blackcurrant, sweet spices, vanilla, fresh flowers, and a very slight hint of raspberry. Very pleasant on the palate with delicate, yet marvellously delicious fruit, and, to my surprise, youthful, slightly sweet tannins and subtle acidity. The beautiful, insistent finish lasts forever. Extremely complex and balanced wine: an absolute delight, definitely still approaching peak.
