Gamliel, Hi....

Following are my most recent tasting notes for the wines in question.

Best
Rogov

Louis Jadot, Nuits St. Georges, 2001: As predicted at an earlier tasting (23 Jun 2005), this medium-bodied, dark ruby towards garnet wine has opened beautifully. On the nose and palate generous red cherry, blackberry and mineral notes, those complemented nicely by notes of damp forest floor and earthy minerals. Long and generous. Drink now-2012. Score 91. (Re-tasted 18 Jun 2007)

Louis Jadot, Nuits St. Georges, 2005: Deep ruby in color, medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins integrating nicely and opening on the palate to reveal generous black cherry and blackberry fruits, those matched nicely by a generous overlay of minted dark chocolate, all lingering nicely. Drink now-2015. Score 91. (Tasted 18 Jun 2007)

Marques de Caceres, Rioja Reserva, 2001: Full-bodied, with gripping tannins and generous spicy wood in fine balance with spicy plum and blackberry fruits, those supported nicely by hints of black pepper and cloves. Drink now-2013. Score 91. (Tasted 18 Apr 2006)

Baron de Ladoucette, Sancerre Rouge, La Poussier, Loire, 2004: Just what you hope for in a red Sancerre, showing medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannins, spicy cedar wood and a generous array of black currants, blackberries and a hint of espresso that runs throughout. Tannins and fruits rise on the long finish. Approachable and enjoyable now but best 2010-2015. Score 93. (Tasted twice with consistent notes 28 Aug and 13 Sep 2008)

Marc Bredif, Chinon, Loire, 2006: Traditional young Loire Chinon, tight now and opening slowly in the glass but as it does revealing generous tar and minerals, those highlighting currant, blackberry and cherry fruits. On the long finish notes of tobacco and iron-like minerals. Approachable now but best 2009-2013. Score 92. (Tasted but not blind 26 Jul 2008)

Marc Bredif, Chinon, Loire, 2005: Lots of iron, green olives and graphite here, those parting to reveal currants, wild berries and licorice notes. Medium- to full-bodied, with gently mouth-coating tannins and a long finish on which notes of cocoa powder will be found. Drink now-2011.Score 91. (Re-tasted but not blind 26 Jul 2008)

Louis Jadot, Cote de Nuits Villages, Le Vaucrain, Burgundy, 2004: Just a wee bit funky, with generous earthiness but that coming together very nicely indeed with cherry and red berry fruits, all on a spicy background. Medium-bodied, with gentle tannins, with the fruits rising on the generous finish. Drink now-2010. Score 89. (Tasted 3 Feb 2007)

Louis Jadot, Cote de Nuits Villages, Le Vaucrain, Burgundy, 2005: Medium-bodied, with soft, gently mouth-coating tannins. Opens with a strong whiff and flavor of licorice but that subsiding nicely in the glass and parting to reveal spicy cherry and wild raspberry fruits. As is traditional with this Jadot wine, the fruits rise nicely on the finish. Best 2008-2014, perhaps longer. Score 91. (Tasted 30 Sep 2007)
