5/29/2015 - KenK Does not like this wine: 85 points

Nice yeasty nose with hints of goldenrod and dandelion. Dry mineral driven with abrasive sweet sour quality. Edgy and somewhat nutty showing hints of maturity. Interesting flavored, but comes across disjointed and strange.

Light simple with good intensity and overall flyovers, but a bit underripe dilute. Good spice and drinkable, but not a wine ment to discuss.

Dark briery red fruit aromas. Dry black cherry flavors with dusty edgy. Structured tense quality. Nice well made with good middle fruit, still seems young. Would be great with a nice steak.

Dark sweet earthy black dusty big rich espresso aromas. Rich ripe dark flavors fat, a tad soft, quite pleasurable and surprisingly rich. A little flabby in middle but comes across almost velvety. Rich finish of dusty earthy tobacco and leather. Really outperformed my expectations, but would still be drinking this up.

Dusty earthy leather, dry tobacco, dried red stone fruits. In nice shape and drink well. Mature and likely on slow down slope, forest floor, full of tobacco and wet soil. Gravelly edge. Soft, smooth, although slightly rustic with an iron ore finish. Drink up, but holding.

Purchased from PC too, shows a bit hard and rustic, somewhat closed, but still highly drinkable. Does not show GC quality, more like. good village. Needs to flush out more and not so sure this will actually occur. Masculine in style and bit compact, but clear Burgundian Pinot.

Deep rich Cocoa covered espresso bean aromas. Dark rich spicy bright dense flavors. Juxtaposition of ripe black cherry and crisp acidity. Young and sexy, a guilty pleasure. Smoky creamy element adds dimension and intrigue. Young, but oh so good.

La Paulee 2015: Who woulda thunk? I had this in the cellar since mid 1980's, one of the original wines I bought. It was a risky choice to open as fill was a touch low and color of dark tea. However, upon opening aromas wafted upwards in an amazingly encompassing way that reminded me why I love Burgundy so much. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clover, dried black cherry, and so much more. Palate was alive and had a lovely sweet edge with completely integrated layers of delicate flavors. Finish was light, but elegant. This is what Burgundy is all about for me.
