Brown bag blind tasting notes

2005 Vallet Freres Pernandes Vergelesses – some nice vanilla and lemon
in the nose and a slightly oily mouth feel. Not bad.

1975 Ch. Beychevelle – this wine still has fairly good colour with
slightly browning edges, a classic claret nose, good fruit on entry,
and still a significant amount of soft tannin. Long and smooth. This
has been drinking at peak for several years now, but still gives much
pleasure. Needless to say, they failed to guess this wine as a 75.

1986 Ch. La Lagune – very nice warm cocoa nose, mellow tannins, medium
length. Decent.

1999 Ch. Leoville Las Cases – sweet vanilla in this nose, sweet entry,
medium body, shows well now but has lots of time ahead.

1996 Castello Banfi Brunello – some tar and lots of acidity, but only
adequate fruit – uncertain future, but at least decent now, might
improve if the fruit holds up.

2000 Fontanafredda Barolo Serralunga d’Alba – lots of tannin and
acidity here, but in this case allied with excellent levels of fruit.
This was very nice and should improve.

1998 Antinori Pian della Vigne Brunello – tarry slightly floral nose
with a nutty element, nice sweet entry, good length, no rush.

2001 Terre Barolo – dark, young, smooth with tar and roses, then a
good tannic framework, good balance but in a modern style. Negociant
wine at a reasonable price.

1996 Ch. Suduiraut – yellow heading for amber, with hints of coconut
and lemon in the nose, with an underlay of butterscotch, this
Sauternes is not yet achieving complexity but it is pleasant and may
perhaps turn into something quite tasty with time, or it may be as
good now as it ever will be – opinions were split..
