LeDomduVin: Today's wines - July 17th 2022

Today's wines: July 17th 2022

Krug Grande Cuvée 170ème Édition NV

Bright, crisp, fresh, light, mineral, good zest of acidity, great balance, love it. 

Jean-Claude Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru "Les Vergers" 2018

White and yellow flowers and fruits, with mineral and discreet wood ageing buttery, toasted notes. Glycerine sensation coating the palate, which gives it amplitude, texture and substance, yet without being heavy nor flabby as balanced by great acidity. Layered and complex in an elegant and gentle way. What a lovely wine! 

Château Haut-Bailly Grand Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan 2010

A very solar wine, full, ripe, generous, ample, layered, earthy, with dark fruits and berries mingling with oak nuances, nice balance overall and still a good grip of tannins, that could still use a few more years to round up. Still very young, and even a bit rough after 2 hours of decanting and cooling by leaving the decanter on ice for a short while to serve it at the right temperature. Quite long finish. A touch of alcohol somehow. Enjoyable, yet too young in my opinion, needs a bit of time to mellow some of the rough edges. 

Château La Mission Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan 2005

I'm a bit biased on this one, as Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion are two of my favourite wines in the world. And yet again, this wine is so good, refined and elegant, that it would be difficult for anyone not to like it. Layered, textured, structured, balanced, complex, aromatic and seductive with a long finish. Great after two hours of decanting. Love it. 

Cheers! Santé!
