Well, you have to don’t you(?) One has to keep up you know… 😉

1991 Jaboulet-Vercherre, Echézeaux
Seems to have a little more about it than the last bottle, though still a little anonymous – perhaps it’s just a phase…
Rebuy – No

1999 Henri & Gilles Remoriquet, Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Au-Dessus des Malconsorts
Deep colour, deep spicy nose – perhaps a little macerating plum in there too – overall, dark-shaded fruit. Lithe but concentrated, lovely impact, subdued tannin but still plenty of mid-palate complexity. This is drinking very well today, very well indeed!
Rebuy – Yes

2006 Mischief & Mayhem, Puligny-Montrachet
This particular bottling, once brilliant, has become rather hit and miss – indeed there are now more misses than hits – it’s time to drink up. The colour is rather dark, but fortunately there’s no hint of oxidation in either the aroma or the flavours – it is a hint flat and fat, yet generous all the same. Still enough here to enjoy, but a wine that’s had its day.
Rebuy – No
