Believe it or not, it's still holding up very well! Very lively on the palate, with flavors of cherries and dark berries, and a bit of spice. Very elegant.

2006 Beaux Frères Pinot Noir Beaux Frères Vineyard

Drank semiblind.
I knew this was a 2006 Pinot Noir.
At first it reminded me of a really robust open Burg, north of Les St Georges, south of Fixin. It had savory spice, molasses or dark cherry, depending on the size of the glass. A large goldfish bowl type glass gave it molasses or sorghum, a tighter tulip glass pushed it toward dark cherry with some leather. I liked the tulip profile better than the fish bowl's. It had more charm and delineation. Either way, it was open and expressive, and more balanced in the tulip; a little fat in the fish bowl. The tannins must have been there, I tasted them, I felt them, when visiting the vineyard, and purchasing this bottle.

terrific bottle, lots of secondary aromatics, and depending on glass size, tertiary components as well. (and a hint of cherry wood smoke).

You could drink this now, or wait. I purchased at the source, and stored at 55-58ºF since release. This one likely was healthier, and more intact than a bottle sourced via auction or otherwise.

tasted: domaine michel gros. vosne romanée clos des réas. 2005. the same week, and saw some similarity. The Vosne will improve with time, or use with beef, butter, and all things great about French food. see review if interested. I just opened the bottle Clos es Réas as I type this note, and it's getting a cork for another day.

Very light delicate pinot with pleasant spiciness. Lighter bodied but with delightful cherry and strawberry fruit. Some minerality added to the long finish. Beautiful

Beautiful perfume on the nose. Follows up with great taste and refinement. Bold for an Oregon Pinot yet remarkably balanced. The finish is long and wonderful.

brick red in color and divine in taste. This 11 year old Willamette Valley Pinot is a gem revealing blackberry, cherry, moss. It didn't take that much time to open.

2009 Beaux Frères Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

5/17/2015 - MikeT122 wrote: 87 points

I've tried other vintages of Beaux Freres and they were excellent. The 2009 Willamette Valley (Unfined and Unfiltered) was well-balanced, had a beautiful, silky texture, but was subtle to a fault: barely any bouquet, and muted pinot flavor that lacked intensity or complexity. I've noticed that not all but many Oregon pinots start fading after age 5, and that seems to be the case here. Perhaps I got a damaged/flawed bottle.

Slow ox'd for several hours. This was a beautiful wine. Pale red and very feminine. Cherry and some decaying floral notes. Really enjoyed this. Definition of finesse right now. Drink now and enjoy.

Way past prime. No fruit left. And perfectly stored…now in probably third stage of evolution, and for an American pinot it's just not what we buy pinot to experience.

Pinot supper (Bitton Restaurant, Erskinville): Concentrated red cherry fruit, alcohol heat under a slightly musty note, autumn leaves, cedar and vanilla. In the mouth the wine is slightly sharp, juicy acidity, rich and quite dense and thick chalky tannins, there is some fruit here that is initially quite muted but with time (over the course of 3 hours) it starts to grow in presence and lends a certain fleshiness to the mouthfeel, pulling the acidity and tannins together. The alcohol heat is a little intrusive on the long finish. I think I like it.

Hmmm. Didn't take my own advise to wait on these. The last two bottles over this past year have been messy. I hope it isn;t the warm vintage falling apart. The 98's did a little bit of the same thing and are drinking beautifully now. Hope these come back too.
