2015 Sebastien Dampt Chablis 1er Cru Les Beugnons Chardonnay
More sybaritic than any Dampt I've had before due to the vintage, but good flavors and pleasantly clean Chablis-finish. Surprised by the 2029 'drink-by' date predicted by others on CT, though--don't think it has the acid to hang in there.

2006 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard Red Mountain
PnP. From a WA vintage that is more 'classic', at least to a French wine lover (fellow Washingtonians probably think 'classic' means riper). California-esque black cherry and Paulliac-ish graphite and cigar box, with weight/depth/length/mouthfeel befitting its cost. More depth and seductive undulations now than the last bottle in 2014, but despite four additional years in bottle there are still no definitive mature qualities nor any end in sight. Definitely a wine to pour for the naysayers who think QC sold their soul to the devil (and maybe they did around 2000, but vintages I've had since '06 suggest they've come back in line). These bottles should happily sit in lucky cellars til 2025 or 2030. My last bottle, wish I had more.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
