À peine tuilé, Wow, le nez de la soirée! Exceptionnel sur de légers fruits noirs et la cerise nous explose en pleine gueule après l’attaque. Une petite touche de vanille et des épices comme muscade et clou de girofle. Je n’ai pas de notes sur la bouche mais ma mémoire me dit que c’était moins spectaculaire que le nez. Une belle complexité avec une légère acidité mais détrônée par son nez.

At a White Horse Tavern in the north country: Served non-blind as a single before the real deal of the night, this was amazing and certainly in contention for WOTN; there is juice and body here, and while there is certainly much more to come, the fruit carries this one nicely and it's pure joy to drink. The surface is dust and minerals, backbone is firm - serous stuff. 95+

La Tâche Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

The 90 La Tache dinner (Washington D.C.): Excellent appearance. Pop and pour. Explosive nose displaying decadent black fruits, essence of blackberry and black cherry, a perfect cup of Kona, rose and lavender, so much Vosne spices that it is exotic and kinky, licorice, hoisin, stem, dark spices and sweet incense. This is certainly very ripe, clearly expression the vintage character, yet there is subtle freshness and precision. The stem inclusion really adds lovely complexity at this stage and keeps the impressive tension. The palate is fascinating in that as the wine touches the lips, the vosne spices and the most intense rose explode. The palate in perfect: incredibly intense yet airy and so darn silky, decadent almost kinky black fruit and Vosne spice driven palate impression, just the perfect amount of acidity, perfectly integrated tannins and incredibly long and perfectly seamless finish that ends with explosive Vosne spices. This is so perfect in incredibly youthful way but will improve for at least another couple decades gaining a bit more of sous bois and a bit more sweet raspberry fruits. The is no doubt that this will equal to the perfect 62. Just perfect in every way! Total sensory overload once again. The wine is so intense that the empty stem still remains explosive. Truly an emotional wine that will make a grown man cry.

Den årliga DRC-provningen med tillhörande middag på Operakällaren i Stockholm. Denna gång årgång 2012.
Massor av stenig mineral, stjälkar, kaffe, lite ekfat och mörka körsbär. Ett kraftfullt och stort vin med otrolig längd, men lite slutet vin som behöver massor tid.

Ett helt underbar vin. Massor av mogna hallon, stenig mineral, moccha, och en otrolig parfym av rosor. I smaken mogna hallon och jordgubbar, elegant syra, silkiga fina tanniner, stendamm och väldigt fin balans och längd.
Detta vin är så jäkla gott just nu med denna ungdomliga frukt och struktur. Bara att korka upp direkt!

En stor och djup doft med körsbär, stenig mineral, kryddor och massor av violer. I smaken fylligt och stort med mogna körsbär, jordgubbar, stendamm, kryddighet och en otroligt bra längd.

Det här är verkligen en helt underbar årgång av Échézeaux. Helt underbar djup frukt i doften med både solmogna jordgubbar och körsbär, krossad sten, lite skogmark och uns av choklad. I smaken samma djupa och mogna frukt fast med otrolig balans och elegans, fin stjälkbeska och väldigt långt slut.

Pale and fresh -disguising a potent but delicate nose with hints of spice. Opened for 1 hour but not decanted. On the palate sour raspberry flavour and some Indian spice etc. No real weight yet. Lots of length. Delicious but best years ahead. Lacking X factor typical of DRC.

Compared with a 1998 Musigny tasted beside it, this was quite a bit more subtle, with an initial velvety elegance. With an hour of airing, much more expressive, with spicy fruit. Really quite lovely.

Tasted en magnum. Light ruby red. Lovely subtle bouquet. Extremely elegant and light in the glass, but its light color is deceptive as it packs a lot of flavor (cherries, etc.) and backbone with finesse and balance.

Balanced, with excellent fruit (predominantly cherries), sophisticated. Translucent and cloudy light red in color. Light to medium body. Not as complex as I would have expected. Seems at peak.

Earthy, rich, dark, with flavors of tart, dried cherries, and soft tannins in the finish, all nicely balanced. Still plenty of life left and should evolve showing greater complexity.

6/25/2015 - Burgundy Al wrote: NR

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Cellar Visit and Tasting (Vosne-Romanée): Barrel tasting at the domaine. Like the La Tache, this showed lots of wild berry character, but more brought together black and red berries with great concentration, especially aromatically. Intense spice coming through on nose and palate. Great density and balance with everything expanding towards middle, and even more towards finish. Excellent.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Cellar Visit and Tasting (Vosne-Romanée): Barrel tasting at the domaine. Wild and ripe red berries coming through on nose and palate with great concentration, good spice. Far more structure vs the Richebourg, this will most likely benefit more from extended time in the cellar. Great potential.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Cellar Visit and Tasting (Vosne-Romanée): Barrel tasting at the domaine. The was the first wine to completely finish ML, 2 months ago. This is everything you want/expect in Vosen-Romanee grand Cru. Huge fruit (more black than red) with an alluring spice box start-to-finish. Incredibly complete, long and harmonious. Excellent potential without doubt.

Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Cellar Visit and Tasting (Vosne-Romanée): Barrel tasting at the domaine. ML 100% complete. Extremely rich and alluring aromas with lush fruit coming through to start, leaner in the middle to finish, which comes across with great textures. No surprise, this clearly shows it needs time. Great potential.

Rich, meaty all black fruit on nose and palate with moderate spice and impressive roast meat character. Very good density and length, even with moderate structure coming through right now.

Deep ruby in the glass with only a dusting of sediment, this wine is mature. Fantastic complex nose of mixed cherries and spice leading to a long, long finish.

If a date, this was a 30 year old successful MBA grad who has work responsibility beyond her years and loves to talk about it over dinner.

Strategy, intrigue, politics.

Deep garnet with only slight lightening at the edges, this wine is fully mature.
Extraordinary complex nose of plum perfume and Asian spice tasting of cherry, plum and strawberry.

Definitely in a sweet spot now so why wait?

If a date, this was a 25 year old model working on her masters in English literature who fascinates you for hours over dinner befor taking you to her place and titillating you for hours until dawn.
Highly recommended++

In a blind mini vertical of 99,02,03,05. The 05 came in at the bottom of the group. Surprising given its vintage pedigree, not surprising if I read my own CT notes. This is just not showing much yet, and should be at the back of the cellar.
