Misc Wines@ Czar's Pad

Chateau Potensac 1995, Medoc: Some dust, blackcurrant,pencil shaving tone onthe nose. Palate wise, dusty grain tannins coating your throat. Silky. Short to medium finish. Not spectacular but an classic Medoc effort. Classic.

Winespectators review:
Pretty aromas of blackberries, violets and spices. Medium- to full-bodied, with a lovely velvety-tannin structure and medium finish. Best from 2001 through 2008: 88 pointers

Veuve A. Devaux Brut Millésimé 1996: Very citrus, astringent, and metallic. Very one dimentional. Bubbles + metalic citrus attacking your palate. Nose with some brioche but citrus dominates. A very poor showing.
Spatburgunder: not sure maker: Too much extracted fruit, and lean in palate. Gummy. Not my liking.
Mclaren Vale Petit Verdot: Not sure maker as well. Did not impress me by a bit. Some jammy fruit not, currant and earthy tone. Pretty boring. Substantial alcohol heat. BLeh
