AUGUST 7, 2010 [1981, Pinot Noir] Saintsbury Wines from Carneros
The appellation was officially created in 1983, as its cool climate is excellent for creating Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with a Burgundian tone of delicacy and finesse. Tags: Wine reviews 09 pinot noir Saintsbury Quick! When you think 'Carneros' what varietal comes to mind?

DECEMBER 2, 2010 [1981, Pinot Noir] Money isn't Everything
The first wine we drank was the 1981 Krug Collection , about $700, imported by Moet/Hennessy/Diageo. Clouet is considered to be one of the better producers in Bouzy, a village famous for Pinot Noir in the Montagne de Reims. Money isn't everything when it comes to Champagne.

MAY 10, 2009 [1981, Pinot Noir] Overachievers and Underachievers
Wines that performed exactly as they should: 1981 López de Heredia Rioja Gran Reserva Viña Tondonia - this noble white wine was served blind, as I served all of the wines blind for our out-of-town friends. Perhaps the top producer in Verzenay, Lallement makes tiny quantities of superb wine, based mostly on Pinot Noir. Cuvée Réserve is made from the estate's older vines, 80% Pinot Noir and the rest Chardonnay, and is a blend of at least two vintages.
WINE TASTING GUY [1981, Pinot Noir] Polaner tasting standouts
| WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 2008
My favorite was the 2007 Pinon Vouvray Silex Noir
which had a crisp nose with ripe tropical fruit and great fruit & acidity on the palate. I got to try the Lopez de Heredia Gravonia Rioja Blanco Crianza 1998, Tondonia Rioja Blanco Reserva 1989 & Tondonia Rioja Blanco Gran Reserva 1981
. I tasted 6 wines at this table, all made from Pinot Noir
. Got back from the West Coast this morning and I hope to write up about day 1 of my wine country trip tomorrow. MORE >>
