We had people over for dinner Saturday and Sunday, so with all the talking and laughing etc., I didn't get to do detailed notes, but here are my impressions of three of the wines we popped.
2010 Domaine Vignaud CHABLIS PREMIER CRU Fourchaume -- Nice, minerally, brothy nose. Nice entry, but then lean and a little hollow at present in the mid-palate. Finishes with lots of clean, limestoney minerals in the finish. Will be better in 2-4 years.
2005 Chateau Lascombes MARGAUX -- Much better than it was two years ago when I opened my first bottle. Starting to develop some complexity, with the California-like primary fruit and oak I thought dominated the first bottle I popped a couple of years ago starting to subside and beginning to develop into a more sophisticated Bordeaux cedary character. Very long finish. Another wine that will be better still in 2-5 years. Too bad that was my last bottle. Paired well with Saturday's grilled steaks.
2006 Paul Pillot CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET PREMIER CRU CLOS SAINT JEAN (Rouge) -- a gorgeous, fully mature red burgundy. Resiny cherry fruit, along with loads of gravelly minerals. Leaner style, with very good acids. Very nice with Coq au Vin.
