Markus Del Monego MW / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  had a tasting of  11 Wines  from  11 Producers 

1878 Château Smith-Haut-Lafitte - 100 points. Still lively, bright ruby colour. Excellent and expressive nose, slightly smoky, roasted chestnuts, hints of dried fruit, noble leather, classical style with perfect maturity and very persistent character. On the palate great elegance, depth and length, hints of minerality and a slight metallic hint in the background. A great bottle, close to perfection.

Bartholomew Broadbent / Wine Writer, Wine Importer (United States)  had a tasting of  13 Wines  from  9 Producers 

Fonseca 1927 Vintage Port / Decanted just before serving. Delicate bronze red, soft color, very light, very faded but more red than the Krohn 1982 Colheita. The nose was very mature, Demerara, soft yet intense. Peppery. Almost a tawny Port spirit. Aromas of old pews and leather bibles in an old English church. The nose evolved throughout the evening, filling the glass, it became huge and totally amazing. The palate was initially hot and spicy. Very spicy. Slightly drying. Morel like brandy than Port but very gentle. It was like an old lady with a lot of pizzazz. As it evolved in the glass it became pure syrup in texture with maple flavors. It became delicious. Initially, it was not my best wine of the evening but as it evolved it became the wine of the night. *****

Clive Coates / MW, Wine Writer (France)  had a tasting of  46 Wines  from  22 Producers 

2005 - A magnificent red wine vintage in Burgundy. This was a dry year, though never particularly hot, save for a heat-wave in May. A hail-storm on 17 July devastated the vines between the villages of Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet. After a mixed August, and much-needed rain on 6 September, the skies cleared and it became increasingly sunny and warm. The Côte d'Or harvest began in the middle of the month and was all but complete by the week-end of 1st. October.

Now ten years old, the red wines, though many are still rather closed, are well deserving of all the bally-hoo they engendered at the outset. The vintage is consistently good (except naturally in Santenay and Chassagne-Montrachet) from Marsannay to Maranges, as well as proportionately so from grand cru to the humblest generic. Few past vintages come close. Perhaps the nearest is 1999, but that was a very much more generous harvest. The relative shortness of the 2005 crop can be seen in the concentration of the wines. They also have depth, finesse, harmony and the potential to last. But they are not monolithic. What more do you want? Don't start opening the best until 2020 or so.

Izak Litwar / The most important Scandinavian Bordeaux Critic, Pro (Denmark)  had a tasting of  10 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Château Certan de May (this property's full name is Certan de May de Certan) is situated in the middle of the so-called "Le Plateau Argileux", a 900 m wide and  circle-shaped high-plateauwith large content of clay and iron oxide in the subsoil, right next to Vieux Château Certan, Hosanna and Petrus a bit away down the road. The vineyard here has only 5 hectares of vines and is planted with 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The average age of vines is 35 years and the yield per hectare is not exceeding 31 hl. The wine ferments and macerates in stainless-steel vats for 4-5 weeks and is kept in 30-50% new oak  for a period of 16-18 months.


My first encounter with Certan de May was in 1987, when with help of wife of Jean-Pierre Estager (La Cabanne), a good friend of the owner of Certan de May (Mme Odette Barreau-Badar), I was granted access to this property. At that time it wasn't easy to visit Certan de May, you had to have good connections.


Mme Odette Barreau-Badar wanted to take care of her children, so she asked Bruno Prats from neighboring Petit Village to take care of harvest and vinification at Certan de May between 1968 and 1974. He accepted. Her son, Jean Luc Barreau, joined her mother in winemaking duties in 1975. Both are responsible for the fantastic effort in 1982 vintage. Jean-Luc Barreau has been fully in charge of running the property since 1998.


As the title of my profile impliess, this property is highly regarded one in Pomerol. The wine from this property is very much a traditional styled one with some small inputs of modern techniques. Still, it's 100% true Pomerol, which reflects in a remarkable way the excellent soil conditions of the property. Power, strong structure, great complexity and truffles. 2016, 2015 and 2010 are probably the best vintages made since the otherworldy 1982.

Georg Linde, Wine Writer (Germany)  had a tasting of  19 Wines  from  16 Producers 

Dominus Estate 1987 - "One of the best cabernet blends I had for some time. A fabulous bottle. Blackberry, plums, tannins still very present, will easily live for another five years." 97 points

Igor Sill, Wine Maker (United States)  had a wine moment

“ I extracted a bottle of 1984 Chateau Margaux from my cellar, contemplating the petite Filet Mignon centered dining of the evening. Instead, I exchanged it for a 2009 Uptick Vineyards Chalk Hill Sauvignon Cabernet. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be. This wine is a point of reference for one of California’s greatest reds from Sonoma County. It’s a wine that waves superb quality, balance and character. The density of the wine takes mes back to classics like Napa's Georges de Latour’s Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon of 1958. Uptick’s 2009 Chalk Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a shining star for Cabernet Sauvignon and proves why Sonoma is one of the most exciting up and coming winemaking regions in the world.

No longer is the region obsessed with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines. Sonoma, and Uptick Vineyards have instead turned towards a new classicism of vibrant fruit, focus and lustfully long finish. Uptick’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers all that and more. 96 points.”

John Kapon / CEO / Ackerr Merrall & Condit, Pro (United States)  had a tasting of  29 Wines  from  15 Producers 

The last of our Bacchanalian extravaganza found us at Per Se, for lunch. Noon is about the minimum recovery time after an evening full of many (many) wines, and thankfully we had a lot of experience at the table. Everybody was ready to go, although I must confess that first glass of welcome Champagne was not easy going down.

Christer Byklum / Leading Scandinavian wine blogger, Wine Writer (Norway)  had a tasting of  43 Wines  from  27 Producers 

2013 Domaine Leflaive Bâtard-Montrachet / Pale lemon yellow. Lemons, vanilla, minerals, spices, some floral notes, brighter expression for Bâtard, lighter. Fresh acidity, fresh and fruity, apples and citrus with more subdued minerals beneath, detailed and long. 95p

Jeannie Cho Lee MW, Pro (China)  had a tasting of  11 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Dom Perignon Oenotheque 1975 / A gorgeous, mature Champagne that has a natural sweetness on the nose and palate - sweet biscuits, butterscotch, honeysuckle and toffee. A remarkable Champagne with a long finish that is perfect to enjoy with food - the flavours remind one of a complex, mature, white Burgundy. According to winemaker Richard Geoffroy, this vintage was one the latest harvests with grapes picked in October. There is a richness and generosity here that is not present in many other vintages from the 1970s. This 1975 Oenotheque was disgorged in 2008.

Ken Gargett, Wine Writer (Australia)  had a tasting of  33 Wines  from  17 Producers 

De Bortoli ‘Riorret’ ‘Lusatia Park’ Pinot Noir 2016 / This exciting Yarra Valley vineyard does Pinot Noir as well as it does Chardonnay, perhaps even more so. This is a cracker. Plums, earth, slightly sappy notes with some animal skin complexity. Licorice and dark fruits. Satiny tannins and excellent length. This is no simple Pinot; this is seriously good. Should age well for a decade or more. 

Score: 95/100
