Penfolds Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz 1961-1981 / Bin 389 is often referred to as ‘Poor Man’s Grange’ or ‘Baby Grange’, in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960, by the legendary Max Schubert, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers.

Combining the structure of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds skill in judiciously balancing fruit and oak.

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.

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

Raymond Lafon 2003 99p / Tasted seven times. Consistent notes. 99.9% of entire harvest became Grand Vin!! Extremely intense nose of melasse, mango, candied mandarine peel, crème brulée. These botrytised flavors were incredible and deep. Extremely rich, unctuous and extremely long on the palate, with acidity matching perfectly gobs of sweetness. This was extraordinary stuff, pure extravaganza I say, 100%% legend and a perfect example of flamboyant style of Bordeaux stickies. I think those who criticize 2003 vintage for being too much sugar and having too little acidity, can really eat their words now! This vintage's really opened for floodgates this year with fantastic wines matching all kinds of food perfectly.

Riesling, Clos Saint Hune, 1985, Trimbach For a change, a wine from Alsace – but what a wine! The Clos Sainte Hune comes from the limestone grand cru of Rosacker in Hunawihr, just down the road from the Trimbach headquarters in Ribeauvillé. I have always contended that fine old riesling is the best wine to drink with smoked salmon, and so I picked out one of my last bottles of the 1985 for Christmas. Fully mature, of course, but with splendid energy and depth. Very delicious indeed. While more and more fine white Burgundies, even those not prematurely oxidised, seem to give up the ghost after a dozen or so vintages, it is gratifying to be able to worship at the other end of a glass of a vigorous (almost) thirty year old riesling.

Stuart Robinson, Wine Blogger (Australia)  had a tasting of  14 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Tapanappa Riesling 2015 / A number of firsts here for Brian Croser and Tapanappa: his first revisit of making a wine with Eden Valley fruit in forty years; the first wine made with Con Moshos (former Petaluma Chief Winemaker, now returned to the Tapanappa winery); and the first wine under the Tapanappa label made with fruit off of a vineyard not their own.

Jasmine, florals, lime, bath salts; delicate on entry, leading to mineral and sharp citrus; great acidity. A mere 300 dozen made of this wine, available ex-cellar door and website only.

Be sure to seek some out - it possesses a beautiful flow, on to a textural spread across the back palate. Exquisite finish. 93p

Andreas Larsson / Best Sommelier in the World 2004, Pro (Sweden)  had a tasting of  4 Wines  from  4 Producers 

1975 Lafleur – well what can one say – another kind of perfection, yet being so bloody discreet. There´s no show off here, and I’m sure that the legendary sisters Robin never tried to make anything remarkable, they just tended their vineyards and made wine kind off… however this alluring terroir has something special, I love to imbibe its perfume, as it offers so much, so many nuances and fragrances. The taste starts out very discreet but it just expands and lingers on the palate. This is truly a wine that deserves to be called Grand Vin…

Sorì Tildin 2008 is a Langhe DOC wine from Barbaresco, as Gaja blends in some Barbera. Although, that is the official version, I always have a strong sensation of Cabernet in the wine, but maybe I am mistaken. A very intense color, a completely different aroma compared to the previous wine. Compact, solid tannins, thicker fruit, more fat, texture. A long finish, with plenty of oak, tannin and alcohol. A big wine compared to the elegant Barbaresco.
