I've had these two weeks ago or so, forgot to post them.
The fruity notes of the 2001 were almost dead in comparison to the 2003. I still have one or two each, so I'll get to investigate it further. The 2003 was better overall, not only due to the more alive fruit, but it was also less hot. Still hot. Are all Lanessan's hot? I think I've had a Lanessan wine a few years ago but I don't really recall it.
Also two weeks ago:
Very bold, very big. Not very elegant. I wasn't "wowed", but it wasn't bad. I think I have 5 bottles (or even 8?) more of this, so ultimately I'll get to form a better opinion. Also picked up a bottle of Brunier/Lynch's La Chapelle Les Pallières 2010 (Gigondas) for cheap.
And two bottles each of Joncier's Les Muses (2011) and Le Classique (2012) Lirac, as well as a bottle of Ökonomierat Rebholz Spätburgunder Tradition Spätlese 2011.
Flunked an oral exam yesterday. Nothing grave, partially expected, and I'll get to repeat and rock it in February or so, but I've got to punish me somehow. So I opened this champagne.
Good/interesting: noticeable cherry notes. Semig-good: semi-long finish. Not that good: Quite aggressive and slightly unbalanced acidity.
