a game for the next few days

I had a very ‘illuminating’ experience yesterday; 15 wines, many were grand crus and served in flights of three – but served blind – their identities were only revealed at the end, though we had the list upfront.

  • 2004 Denis Bachelet, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Les Corbeaux
  • 2004 Ponsot, Chapelle-Chambertin
  • 2004 Haegelen-Jayer, Clos de Vougeot
  • 2004 Fourrier, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Clos St.Jacques
  • 2004 Fourrier, Griottes-Chambertin
  • 2004 Geantet-Pansiot, Charmes-Chambertin
  • 2003 Cornu, Corton
  • 2003 Guyon, Echézeax
  • 2002 Tollot-Beaut, Corton Bressandes
  • 2002 Guyon, Vosne-Romanée Les Charmes de Mazières
  • 2002 Hudelot-Noellat, Vosne-Romanée 1er Les Suchots
  • 2001 Armand Rousseau, Chambertin
  • 2001 de Vogüé, Musigny Vieilles Vignes
  • 1999 Gros Frère & Soeur, Richebourg
  • 1999 Hudelot-Noellat, Romanée Saint-Vivant

I also made a guess as to the identity of the wines and ended up with 5 from 15, but had 0 from the first 8! It wasn’t an improvement by process of elimination either as no identity was revealed until the end. So over the next 5 days I will give you 3 wines per day, and you can guess from my note and score what it might be – then the shocks will be revealed!

    Hi Bill,
    was fun to meet you yesterday! Was definitely a very educational tasting with quite a few surprises! I think I had 3 out of 15 guessed correctly……..

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
