    Coteaux du Layon – 1962 – Pierre Coicaud

    Label: Perfect
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: Perfect
    Color: Perfect

    Coteaux du Layon is located in the Anjou district of the region, along the Layon River. The best vineyards are generally located on the north bank of the Layon, where they enjoy good sun exposure on south-facing slopes.
    Coteaux du Layon wines are all produced by Chenin blanc, often locally called Pineau de la Loire. Often the grapes are harvested when they are affected by noble rot, but they can also be only very ripe or dried in the sun on the vine, the so-called passerillé grapes.

    Château Cheval Blanc – 1971 – St Emilion

    Label: Damaged
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: High shoulder
    Color: Perfect

    The 1971 Cheval Blanc is simply a beautiful example of the vintage that remains at its absolute apogee of drinkability and offers up glorious complexity on both the nose and palate. The deep, pure and very vibrant bouquet delivers a superb aromatic constellation of cherries, pomegranate, spiced meats, menthol, tobacco, a touch of nutskin, a complex base of soil tones, cedar and a bit of orange peel in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, pure and velvety on the attack, with a superb core, outstanding transparency, tangy acids, melted tannins and superb focus and grip on the very, very long and perfectly balanced finish.

    Barolo – 1967 – Bartolo Mascarello

    Label: Slightly worn
    Caps: Perfect
    Level: 4 cm
    Color: Perfect

    As I noted in my article on Bartolo Mascarello back in October 2007, I was down to my last bottle in my cellar of the beautiful 1967 Barolo from this legendary producer, and it was inevitable that it would not last too long in my collection. Happily, this last bottle was the best of five really splendid examples I drank over the last decade, as the wine offers up a pure and utterly brilliant aromatic constellation of cherries, anise, orange zest, fresh herb tones, hazelnuts, camphor, a beautifully complex base of soil, gentle notes of road tar and a topnote of violets and roses. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and absolutely at its apogee, with a sappy core of sweet red fruit, brilliant soil inflection, moderate tannins, bright, tangy acids and stunning length and grip on the perfectly balanced and magically complex finish.
