Cleaning Out the Cupboard: Bordeaux 1943-2020

This article cleans out my cupboard of miscellaneous Bordeaux tasting notes. It embraces legendary bottles and iconic vintages, minnows and seasons long-forgotten, even derided. Few pleasures in life surpass that of a bottle of wine with years under its belt.

Moor Hall completely blew me away; lofty expectations surpassed and then some. It takes the best parts of its peers and combines them into something greater.

Vinous Favorites

2020 Marco De Bartoli Rosso di Marco

2020 Marco De Bartoli Rosso di Marco, 91 points

The 2020 Rosso di Marco (Pignatello, a local biotype of Perricone) opens with a fresh bouquet of crushed strawberries, roses and white pepper. It's round and supple, with dark red fruits and spices. Zesty acidity adds a sweet and sour twang as vivid notes of licorice fade. (EG)


Cellar Favorites

Bual cossart gordon 1895

1895 Cossart Gordon Bual

Few wines are as indestructible as Madeira. Plenty of 19th-century wines continue to thrive. Following a recent exploration of Frédéric Mugnier’s Chambolle Les Amoureuses, we finished with this fine 128-year-old Madeira that affirmed its time-bending properties.
