July 14, 2014 - I think this drinks above its pedigree. Beautiful earth with a touch of pine, and a great dark cherry core. one of my favorite QPR's

May 28, 2011 - All four of my bottles from PC were heat damaged, with the corks completely stained red, and the wines all oxidized.
May 10, 2011 - I initially noticed that the cork was heavily stained all around, and upon opening this smells like it's corked. Maybe this is the first cooked and corked bottle of wine I've opened? Purchased from PremierCru BTW. Upon tasting it's very earthy and really rather pleasant on the palate, not completely closed as one might expect. As the wine opens up it's developing a funky side and I'm torn between this being corked or just clashing with my salmon. So in conclusion I have no f'in idea what's going on with this wine...

April 8, 2011 - A regal burgundy that is earthy, terroir driven. A vinturi decant opened it up measurably. The is a tremendous medium-bodied burgundy that is just entering it's drinking window. Decant for a couple hours now or hold. Excellent QPR.
