 Tasted by Dubie on 4/23/2013 & rated 93 points: Opened with Luc Bouchard in Hong Kong. I am so happy this wine has improved in recent years. Last bottle I opened at Xmas 2010 was "down" and I thought the wine was now shot. It is not! Perhaps just going through a sleepy phase. Anyway, I am happy to report it is in great shape, with a lovely peppery nose as I recalled it, and a good fruit / acidity balance. (1332 views)
 Tasted by Dubie on 12/25/2010 flawed bottle: Had been warmed up during its life at some point most probably... and unfortunately (2072 views)
 Tasted by Dubie on 12/25/2010 & rated 92 points: Beautiful peppery nose, deep red fruits, lovely balance in the mouth. At 25y, toward the end of its life, not as powerful as 2y ago. (2071 views)
 Tasted by Dubie on 10/3/2010 & rated 89 points: Beautiful colour and nose for this bottle sourced directly from Bouchard in 2010. Fruit was intense, but starting to lack structure. Good first wine to serve at dinner. Drink up. (2134 views)
 Tasted by Dubie on 9/28/2010 & rated 89 points: Wet nose. Good not excellent palate. (2166 views)
 Tasted by 60ouvrees on 1/1/2008: This was drinkable but just barely. There is a lot of brown around the rim and the wine is almost completely maderized. Bottle was in perfect condition and had been perfectly stored so not sure what happened here. (1833 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 11/12/2005: Unbleached cork. Layered complex nose of back and red fruits, floral elements, and earth. On the palate, well balanced, with mature black fruit, moderate finish. Lovely nose, and a taste which almost delivers the full promise of the nose. (2251 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.

# 2013 Vintage Notes:
* "2013 is a vintage that 20 years ago would have been a disaster." - Will Lyons
* "low yields and highly variable reds, much better whites." - Bill Nanson
* "Virtually all wines were chaptalised, with a bit of sugar added before fermentation to increase the final alcohol level." - Jancis Robinson

# 2014 Vintage Notes:
"We have not had such splendid harvest weather for many years. This will ensure high quality (fragrant, classy and succulent are words already being used) across the board, up and down the hierarchy and well as consistently from south to north geographically apart from those vineyards ravaged by the hail at the end of June." - Clive Coates
