    August 16, 2014 - Accessed with Coravin. Lighter shiny ruby color. Jumps out of the glass with notes of white pepper, red cherries, raspberries, minerality and some balsamic notes. On the palate there are beautiful notes of red berries again, tons of white pepper, cinnamon, cedar wood and tobacco. Medium- bodied but pretty dense, with at least medium+ acidity providing tons of freshness and medium tannin adding structure. Very nice finish. A ridiculously beautiful and sappy Burgundy that is super fresh and has a lot of finesse and complexity for this price range. It will definitely age beautifully for quite a few years but if you don’t mind some acidity and freshness, it’s fantastic now.

    June 22, 2014 - Very harmonious wine. Aromas of fresh strawberry and cherry; not overripe. Also earthy, stem, and coffee aromas in background. Good acidity and body. Drinking relatively well, although could use more time in bottle.

    September 26, 2013 - Yeah... so this is stemmy... but nice with a 2-hour decant. I'm tolerant of stems and this comes close to but doesn't cross over the line. Others less tolerant will recoil in horror. The wine has a nice, sappy persistence and good weight, so I'm not understanding some CT notes that claim otherwise. I'd buy more if I was confident the stems will integrate, but who knows?

    August 4, 2013 - Cote de Beaune (SF Wine Trading Company): Light center, pale edge. Cool green aromatics. Black fruit, properly light bodied. Pleasingly pure and limpid with a hint of smoke. Excellent acidity if not great length.

    July 23, 2013 - Hmmmm.....young as a pup and a touch chunky and disjointed right now. Definately needs to be left alone in a dark cellar for a few years, which is no surpirse. Meaty tang and a touch of cinnamon stick comes through and then a whack of hard-edged fruit. This one will be a tough one to love for the first few years of its life but I think it should stretch its legs out within 5 years and become quite a pretty. For now if you are tempted to drink one then try the 2007 which are lovely.

    (Chandon de Briailles Pernand-Vergelesses Premier Cru Île des Vergelesses) Dark cherry fruit here, showing a good intensity of aroma with savoury elements to it redolent of mushroom and truffle, but there is an appealing freshness and vibrancy to it as well. Less granular than the Savigny tasted alongside, a more integrated, admittedly chocolate-tinged polish here. Full, rich, but with a more silky tone to the structure and overall composition which I like. This is certainly no delicate lightweight though, as there is substance and potential here beneath the flavour and definition. Good potential here.
