2012 Verdicchio Classico - Bucci DOC Jesi, 13.5%  Greenish yellow with a strange cola-cola aroma, touch of almonds. On the palate, it's dry, fresh with medium warmth. It had a touch of a bitter aftertaste. I think it may be a bit mature. BP: Skip (the aromas are unpleasant and the flavors are over the hill).

Comte de Vogue Musigny Blanc    believe it or not, I actually owned/drank a bottle of this (although it was a 1990).  Hands down the most intense and profound chardonney I have ever experienced.   Doubt I'll ever SEE another bottle in person again.

A l’oeil :  Sa robe rose pâle et rayonnante se pare de reflets chauds et dorés tandis que ses bulles délicates lui confèrent une mousse persistante.  Au nez :  Un arôme subtil et gourmand, un fin bouquet de notes de fruits rouges et zestes d’agrumes.  En bouche :  Attaque en bouche précise et élégante, suivie d’une finale légèrement framboisée et d’une belle fraîcheur.   Dégustation :  Ce vin de champagne rosé est un compagnon idéal de l’apéritif, mais aussi d’un plat de saumon sauvage ou de…

Zorzettig Friulano  Winemaker's notes: "The bouquet...is intense, fine and complex. Distinctly minerally with elegant aromatic overtones. The...soft and warm taste reveals ample freshness and tanginess, whilst the finish accompanies a light bitter almond taste identifying the peculiarity of the wine variety."  It was balanced, harmonious, but didn't really offer anything worth talking about as the aromas were faint and the palate was scarce. BP: Skip
