Due to vacation and illness it took a little longer this time, but now there is a new tasting. Here we have only great wines with 18/20 points or more.

One of the best basic champagnes is the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve, disgorged in 2023. The champagne has a perfect perlage and beautiful blossom notes and is fresh, balanced, long and elegant. A perfect aperitif. 18/20 points.

Burgundy is expensive, but sometimes the quality is simply sensational. The Prieuré Roch 2019 Ladoix Le Cloud is a lieu-dit, but has everything a great Burgundy needs: some wood, beautiful raspberry notes, full body, density, tannin, structure, long finish, perfect balance, depth and fine tannin. 18.5/20 points.

The Guigal 2003 Cote Rotie La Mouline is very ripe and somewhat oxidized (apparently due to the hot vintage), with moss, undergrowth, malt, tar, full body and age sweetness. The wine is very dense and something for old wine fans. 18/20 points.

Damilano is simply a bank when it comes to mature Barolo. The Damilano 1958 Barolo is an archetypal Barolo from a great vintage and has herbs, nettle, full body, some acidity, melted tannin, structure and is fresh, precise and long. Decant without fail. The wine seems much younger. 19/20 points.

The Marchesi di Barolo 1958 Barolo is very dense with powdered sugar, herbs, some cherry, malt, full body, long finish and is balanced and somewhat medicinal. Unfortunately, it has a very slight hint of apple cider vinegar. 18.3/20 points for Barolo lovers.
