Community Tasting Notes 7

    September 18, 2014 - Oxidized to the extent of being undrinkable.

    June 10, 2014 - On the nose you get some menthol and spice along with ripe orchard fruits and butter and cream. It is just starting to go a little bit nutty but the palate has piercing line and is shaped a little more like Chevalier than Montrachet.

  • Ben Christiansen wrote:

    January 3, 2014 - Well, I think the huge concern was that after about two hours open the palate or nose wasn't giving up much and then the finish tasted like a just faint hint of pre-ox. Which made me wonder what the point of even making a Le Montrachet is if its going to take 20 years to resolve and yet be pre-ox'd by year 6.

    In any case, about five hours in it started to come up and the "sherried" character dropped out, or blew off, something I had never had happen before. Since I have very little experience with the producer I can't decide how to take this experience... risky at this price? Or just me being nervous?

  • DAN BAILEY Likes this wine:

    August 3, 2013 - Superb showing. Very light yellow colour. Explosive nose of minerals, chalk and flint. Just wouldn't quit. Lovely palate although still quite closed in.

    December 19, 2012 - Huge, sappy glycerin, spectacular white flowers, floral, peach crisp apple, but still structured with great acidity. AN unbelievable monumental bottle that I had to young.
