    July 15, 2014 - Still REALLY new to the world of Burgundy. The more I enter that world the more I get hooked. The smokiness, elegance of this wine is great. Black and red fruit with the earthiness I adore in wine. Some mint and menthol but pleasing. Medium legs and tears. Beautiful initial attack of cherries and bright acidity with a dryness crying for a beautiful hanger steak. Still young but approachable. Well balanced with a bright future.

    July 13, 2014 - All about lovely fresh red fruits - just a cornucopia of red berries on the nose - more a nod to chambolle than slightly more earthy gevrey at this stage. After a decent "fourrier shake" to get the co2 out the aromatics really lift and the purity and freshness are highlighted. Lots of crunchy red fruit on the not quite midweight palate - very primary and very lively. Already has quite a long finish witha wonderful freshness to the finish. Lovely village burgundy.

    June 20, 2014 - That's crazy amazing aromatics. And the palate follows suit. Works it out for anything under $100.

    March 17, 2014 - This wine is so tied up with structure on opening. Lots of wood. The fruit is totally covered with elevage.

    Intense red fruit core. Incredible nose. The essence of Gevrey. This wine shows all the best of Gevrey on the nose but not the complexity of Chambertin.
    A+ village wine. Decant if you want to try this folks! This is a special village wine.

    February 10, 2014 - Very different from a few months ago and not moving in a positive direction. Bottle variation or shutting down? Bright, full, red. Where as before the was a filigree of tangy candied red fruits, dark berries, flowers and earth, this time the nose was a bit one dimensional and primary. Again good volume with earth and sour cherries on the palate but only a hint of the Gevrey game. A nice long finish with some salinity but I will not be returning to the remaining bottles for some time (?2018).
