  • 2007 Domaine Dublère Charmes-Chambertin 90 Points

    Lots of fresh red berry aromas, some spice hints along with a touch of animale. Very forward and fresh, and drinking very nicely now given modest tannins and power.

  • 2011 Henri Boillot Volnay 87 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay

    Tasting. Black and red cherry aromas with spice and floral hints. More meaty and dense than I d expect from Villages level Volnay, very balanced but firm on palate. Give this at least a year or three in the cellar.

  • 2011 Henri Boillot Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru

    Tasting. Tough wine to assess. At first it came across as dense, firm, with all black fruit and liqueur notes, almost seeming jammy. With more air and consideration, this was still a large scaled Volnay but its great concentration and intensity really starting coming through. Serious wine that needs plenty of cellar time. 90 points today, 92-93 point potential from here.

  • 2011 Henri Boillot Volnay 1er Cru Champans 89 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Volnay 1er Cru

    Tasting. Similar to the Caillerets just tasted, also a bit of liqueur and jam, just not showing the same level of concentration and medium-term potential for me.

  • 2008 Maison Alex Gambal Clos Vougeot 88 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

    Very forward and charming Grand Cru, accessible today with mostly red fruit aromas and flavors, good ripeness, good textures, modest intensity and concentration. Good now, and I expect easily for another decade+.

    black fruit aromas, spice hints, sauvage in background. Good weight and density, concentration really coming through on finish with lots of spice and nuance.
