2002 Domaine Leroy Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts

Pinot Noir more

7/3/2015 - johnh1001 wrote: 95 points

After a few mediocre bottles of Leroy recently I wanted to make myself feel better with a sure thing. This did not disappoint. As wonderful as it was 2 years ago this bottle seemed ever so slightly mellower and emphasized more black fruit with a interesting coffee/ chocolate note. Outstanding spice throughout that was not over powering or too stylistic. Super balance and length. 2002 Leroys are really something. Happy this ended up being tasting note 3000!

Completely closed on the nose. Barely a bit of dark fruit and spice. Smooth, well integrated with nice balance on the palate with dark fruit and beefy notes. Shorter finish and just a tad dry. I was expecting this to be much better.

nice bright fruit. Soft minerality. Some reduction. Touch of a sour note of the finish. But I'm being picky.

Very rich dark fruit, blue fruit, tar, dried rose petal some earth and more tar. Just love the balance and forward, yet not overdone, nature of the red and black fruit on the palate. Good now, but will last a long time.

An amazingly fresh and crisp nose of ripe orchard fruit, citrus, hazelnut and toast. Excellent depth and viscosity on the palate with a superb honeyed finish. Amazing.

Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

Wow. Wow. Amazingly fresh and youthful nose of spice, earth, dried roses, truffles and more spice. Classic power without weight on the palate this was at once delicate and pretty while delivering persistent and bright flavors every minute of the 3 hours we had the bottle open. Incredible detail and nuance but the freshness and brightness of the red fruit really stole the show. An absolutely beautiful mature bottle of Burgundy.

Nebbiolo more

Decanted and drank over 4 hours. Outstanding nose of over ripe dark fruit, tar, touch of roses and a slight prune note. This followed through to the palate that was at once this and rich, but still delicate with fine grip and dried roses on the finish. Very fresh and youthful.

Subdued but detailed nose of red and black fruit, spice and touch of truffle. Soft and gentle on the palate with great balance and a tart cherry finish. A little short, but nicely integrated.

Absolutely superb nose of ripe red fruit, rhubarb, pomegranate and loads of spice. All of this carried through to the rich and detailed palate. Very forward, but concentrated letting you know that this still has a long way to go. Long finish with excellent grip. This was still excellent on day 5!

serious Oak on the nose. This was very apparent tonight. Once you got past that, a lovely ripe palate of dark fruit, coffee, asphalt and leather. Great balance and concentration.

Sweet and pure nose of dark fruit, violet and some chocolate. Touch of mint every now and then. Sleek and sexy in the palate. Deep dark fruit and wonderful texture. For a SQN, I found the finish to be a little rough and alcoholic. But the balance and purity are amazing.

1996 Emmanuel Rouget Echezeaux

Echezeaux Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

6/21/2015 - johnh1001 wrote: 92 points

Very closed on the nose and even after 3hours of air, just barely getting glimpses of dense meaty dark fruit, subtle spice and iron notes. Also holding back on the palate with more dark fruit, spice, touch of red fruit and dried roses. Stacked and concentrated with excellent texture and balance, but just not a lot of excitement. Relatively short finish. I will need to revisit this one given other notes written.
