Community Tasting Notes 7

    July 19, 2015 - This is a proper grown-ups wine - so much refinement, complexity and less-is-more elegance. Very fined boned but the years have given this a touch of meaty hung-game and funky cherry on the nose - there is a lurking sweetness on the nose that comes up on the palate as acidic and tarte - they work well together. Needs food (a nice fatty duck would be brilliant) as the acidity really starts to show after 2 hours.

    As a side note I drank from both a Zalto Burgundy glass and a Spiegelau Burgundy glass - the Zalto really accentuated the game and perfume, whereas the Spiegelau brought out the fruit.

    August 23, 2014 - Takes time to open up to a gently red-fruited palate underpinned by marks from the soil. Pure expression, the rugged soil of Pernand showing through. The fruit is still persistent, tannins are marked. Lovely wine, understated and elegant.

    March 5, 2014 - Paul D's Chandon de Briailles @ 28-50 (28-50, Fetter Lane, London): A little leaner, brighter, more focused, just the right side of shrill. Cuts through the duck beautifully. Shows the structure of the vineyard without some of the gloss of prettier vintages, but it works well. Bare ****

    April 24, 2013 - A deeper and cooler dark fruited nose. Deeper cherry, plum almost cassis. Nice perfume. Supple and full bodied, structured but round around the edges. Quite deep, and with a darker earthy side. Outstanding balance, good length and a cooler savory backend. Outstanding and early peak. 91pts

    July 29, 2011 - Clearly superior to the 98. Much more fruit, an attraktive nose and mid finish. Drink up the first day, it fades fast the next day.
