Community Tasting Notes 10

    March 22, 2016 - Pretty dense nose of dark fruit, black pepper, meat, herbs and sweaty socks. Thick on the palate with more dark fruit, some white pepper and earth and brooding spice. For a second this reminded me of young DRC Corton. Quite a bit of structure on this finish. Clearly needs time.

    January 17, 2016 - This has started to shut down, shows completely unlike older notes here, thought this would be bigger and more obvious. Wood-dominated nose after an hour turns not to fruit but a showy high-toned floral/organic perfume. Great delicacy and finesse, with air the tannin becomes increasingly and surprisingly apparent - not clenched, bassy mouth-filling tannin; a strong top-note instead. Good wine but I hate to score it right now.

    November 10, 2015 - The 2012 Clos des Lambrays has shut down a bit, but it is not yet in a deep sleep—it's only snoozing! With a brief decant the nose opens up to show an abundance of Lambrays dark fruit tones, Peking duck, earthy soil and subtle, homely spice. On the palate the wine is sappy, very intense and texturally refined, with real grand cru heft and completeness. Benchmark juice, but in truth best left alone for another decade or ideally more.

    January 21, 2015 - Visit to Domaine des Lambrays (Morey-St-Denis): (Yield 15 hl/ha, harvested 20 September). Again a dark, impenetrable appearance. Complex fruit aromas; raspberries, cassis, and blueberries with spicy aromas. An impression of real ripeness. Tremendous concentration on the palate; complex fruit flavours in good balance with acids and polished tannins. Flavours of crème de cassis, compote de fruits and mixed dark spices. We asked about the comparison between the 2012 and the 2003. Thierry said that although there was high concentration, it was not to the level of 2003 (when they harvested at 24 August). I agreed that there was no surmaturite here. Excellent!

    May 20, 2014 - SARZI AMADE' TASTING (HOTEL MARIOTT MILANO): Frutto più scuro, più materia, più cilindrata. Naso ancora un po' in riduzione, è ancora molto primario, fragolina rorida nettissima.
    Il palato di contro è più carnoso, erbe aromatiche, liquirizia e olive nere.
    Un vino giocato più sul frutto e meno sui profumi.
    Sicuramente ha un enorme potenziale, ma a mio gusto preferisco la femminilità e la grazia del 2011.
