2005 Pépière, Muscadet Granite de Clisson:
Wow! What was, on release, a soft but ample wine is now brilliant, streamlined, focused and quite deep. ‘Packed with laser-like fruit, a substantial mineral core and length to burn. Spectacular wine!
1989 Baumard, Savenièrres:
Too oxidized to show much but a bit of chenin goodness peeking through.
1999 Dugat-Py, Gevrey-Chambertin VV:
Full, rich, textural wine with a heady bouquet and a long, sensuous mouth-feel. Still partially closed but showing nicely and excellent with several dishes including sherry-marinated pork tenderloin.
1995 Maison Leroy, Beaune Villages:
Firm, clean and appealing; not as rich as the foregoing wine; more focused and structured. Very clearly of its place and has many years ahead of it in the cellar.
