LeDomduVin: I love my job!

I love my job! 

Who wouldn’t when you get to open so many excellent bottles on a regular basis, meaning nearly daily? 

Philippe Colin Chevalier-Montrachet 2019

Philippe Colin Chevalier-Montrachet 2019 has been one of my go-to “Chevalier-Montrachet” for the past 6-8 months already, and I have already described it many times, but I will do it again with pleasure as it is so good!  It is voluptuous, ample, generous, rich, buttery, so well-rounded and silky that it feels almost “sweet” with yellow and exotic fruit nuances, mingling with oaky, toasted nuances. It is virtually "New World" in a Burgundian way, thanks to good acidity and enough minerality to keep it balanced and vibrant. It is a lush, curvy, yet elegant, charming wine with much to give. Decanting it is a must. Loved it.

Chateau Latour Pauillac 2005

Chateau Latour is one of my favorite wines of all time, as it is, with Chateau Haut-Brion (my favorite), always very consistent and delivering high quality, complexity, and depth, especially to those who are patient enough to wait for it to reach its ideal window of drinkability.  This is the case for 2005, which is very open and approachable now. The nose is already promising, boasting dark, ripe fruits and berries mixed with earthy, oaky, secondary, and tertiary aromas (e.g., leather, truffle, cigar box, tobacco, cedar, mushroom, and graphite). Focus and precise, the palate is rich, intense, powerful, well-balanced, bold, and structured, with a grip of earthy tannins and the same type of flavors as the nose expanding through until the long finish. It showed wonderfully after 2 hours of decanting. Loved it. 

Cheers! Santé!
