July 13, 2015 - Lunch at the Rôtisserie du Chambertin: A blend of two-thirds Mazoyeres and one-thirds Charmes fruit. A gorgeous, expressive Rousseau Charmes bouquet of confit of red fruits, especially plums and red currants, with a violet top note. On palate, closer to the 2013 than the 2014, not disgraced in ranking third of the three vintages I tried. Sappy, fleshy and concentrated with sufficient weight. Flavours of small red plums, confit of red and black berries, subtle spices and a chalk finish. Refined tannins. A comparatively earlier drinking Grand Cru but give this wine a minimum of five years. The Charmes worked well with my Rognon but really sang with the Abbaye de Citeaux cheese.

June 4, 2015 - Ma Cuisin, Beaune. Gir lite på aroma rett etter åpning, men kommer med litt kirsebær, bringebær, mineraler, mm med litt luft. I munnen har den fin intensitet, medium+ fylde, god ryggrad av syre/tannin. God lengde. Fungerte ok til Epoisse, men skulle vel egentlig fått 5 år til i kjelleren.

March 15, 2015 - Very nice pinot fruit, creamy, intense; it's a young wine, of course, much to young, but quite forward and open, very clean with a good balance. Will probably close down soon and reermerge witg much more complexity, but this does conforim the vintages character, it is foir early drinking, surely. With Philippe Cambie at Søllerød Kro

December 6, 2014 - Dinner with the SLDS at Mark's: Very very pretty nose - heady roses, graphite, cherry, spice and raspberry. The palate is pure and lovely, with a line of spice that gives it an extra element. Good length and drive. Plenty of ageing potential.
