Ran into a wine tasting event at a wholesale by accident. Tasted a few wines. Some quick notes of what I remember, thus unreliable.
Antica Chiusina Montepulciano '04. Good.
Chapoutier Les Arènes Cornas '0?. Also decent.
Vigneto Poggio Sant'Enrico (montepulciano) '03. Lots of tannins.
il Colombaio di Cencio - il futuro '0?. A little jammy, medium acidity and tannins.
Guidolberto Tenuta San Guido '09. Jammy.
Domaine Terlato & Chapoutier lieu dit Malakoff Shiraz (Pyrenees, '10). Very good. Definitely worth a try. Very interesting shiraz.
Louis Jadot Meursault '0?. I enjoyed this quite a bit.
A few Barbera d'Asti for the next days. Today was Michele Chiarlo's entry level (Le Orme '10) whose '08 vintage was recommended by the NYT. It's very good for € 9. Tomorrow will be Michele Chiarlo's La Court (Barbera d'Asti Nizza), so his higher end one. Monday: Damilano Barbera d'Asti '10, another € 9 one. Guess it's time for some more Barbera d'Alba afterwards.
