Introduction

An impressive selection of slightly aged burgs.

Flight 1 - The whites (4 Notes)

  • 1999 Domaine Leflaive Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières 88 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru

    Light gold. White fresh cream, white flowers, some lemon custard, white tea and ginger skin on a delicate nose. Also some sweet oak, some buttery oats. Fresh attack of lemony acidity hits the front palate with a low ringing mineral finish. However, after leaving it to nurture in the glass for about 20 mins, oh my! captivating. love the rich body of lemon fruit and sweet jasmine honey tea. Very puligny indeed. Excellent typicity.

  • 2000 Domaine Ramonet Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Champs Canet 85 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru

    White mushrooms, hazelnuts, lovely perfume that is enticing and musky. Lovely fresh lemon flavours, some creaminess but then reverts back to a fresh citrus with minerrals. Subsequently developed cream wafer biscuits on the nose.

  • 2002 Domaine Roger Belland Meursault 1er Cru Santenots 83 Points

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

    Light white gold. Buttery lemons, some fish oil , white musk and whiff of airplane fuel . Richer, nutty hazelnuts, nice acidity on peach and white stonefruits. Still young and closed with lots of fresh acidity. However, after waiting for 20mins letting it stand in the glass, there wasn't much development.

  • 2001 Domaine Ramonet Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru La Boudriotte 85 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru

    Yellow gold. Soy sauce, biscuity, savory nose of salted duck soup all rolled into one. Extremely interesting nose that added an essence of chicken component with time. Started low and even till the mid palate was quite restrained and low key. But the finish ascended in intensity with biting acidity and showing modern age strength. This only became more serious a wine with time.

Flight 2 - The reds (6 Notes)

  • 1995 Domaine Dujac Morey St. Denis 88 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis

    What a nose! Exotic spice scents, exotic cherries, chinese herbs, soy sauce with just enough floral lift and some dirt. The palate is full of cigarette ash, tobacco , ashy hawthorne berries soup with wet wood. With more time, this put on a very sharp and zingy nose of salted preserved vegetables.

  • 1999 Domaine du Clos de Tart Clos de Tart 86 Points

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

    The darkest red of the tasting most probably due to this excellent vintage. This vintage is still not ready and was quite hard to drink (in a respectable sense). Got a lot of toasty oak aromas of cocoa and dark roast coffee, which I suspect is due to the youth of the wine. Still needs lots of time to come together. However, on the palate, this is already exhibiting lovely strength of fruit. Grippy and lively red fruits and cherries. Has the structure and underlying potential to come to a much higher level than now.

  • 2002 Geantet-Pansiot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 85 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

    Good typicity of the terroir with fresh cut flowers, red cherries and more flowers. Not floral in a dainty style but more of a mature disposition. Fresh berries, brambles, some leaf, dash of earth dust. With time, the coffeeish dark choc oak came out on the nose but palate wise , the wine didnt develop much more complexity. Good but not great.

  • 2000 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Chambolle-Musigny 86 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny

    Sweet daisy florals,quite exotic with wet soil. Aristocratic aging fruits nicely integrated with earth and oak. Subsequent nose showed caramel, black cherry flavoured licourice and fishyness. The fruits got softer and more supple. Nice mouthfeel. A focused and collected wine.

  • 1997 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Richebourg 87 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Richebourg Grand Cru

    A very difficult vintage which does show its influence on the wine made by this legendary domaine. Its aromas are wholly secondary with lots of unique antiquish rosewood furniture, dried wood chips intermixed with an array of chinese herbs like white dried bark, dried cordyceps and a lots of different types of roots. But I did get an underlying faint nose of raspberries and stewed cherries lurking underneath the topsoil. Some interesting chicken soupyness and fir as well. As much as it was a DRC, it did not knock me out senseless but it did show the greatness of DRC with the impeccable weaving of oak, tobacco leaf and some cabbage into the low tone of fruits (that would have most probably been contributed by the vintage). Needs drinking now. I suspect many will be disturbed by the lack of or seemingly underwhelming fruits but this was really a difficult average quality vintage.

  • 2001 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Echezeaux 87 Points

    France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru

    Very poopy with animal nuances backed by inkish extracted dark red cherries. Smelly animal ass! Fresh exciting and lively red fruits. Very good with nice structure. Finishes with even lovelier supple and impressionable fruits to the end.The woodspice increases with the time in the glass.
