    November 17, 2016 - This wine sings sings sings ... incredibly fresh, mineral and pure, this is really my style of wine. Cherry stone all the way and very very long. I love this wine. 93+ as it could still improve

    November 8, 2016 - This is excellent wine. It starts out very slowly, disjointed and almost severe. I think that it is maybe 5 years too early to be getting into this wine, based on what I experienced tonight. At first there is a whiff of dark fruit, and not a whole lot else. But after 90 minutes open the wine begins to articulate itself, showing a prominent mineral side, with savory elements of wood and charcoal, rock, and something like shrimp paste. Yup. And then there are waves of fruit, and it is vivacious, juicy, and alluring high toned red fruit, and still noble and focused. Two and a half hours in and the wine just sings. Energetic and driving, with sweet and complex fruit and savory aromas and flavors too, and all perfectly balanced, showing great purity, and completely harmonious. The finish is very long and entirely mineral. There is an awful lot of wine here, in a humble package.

    June 12, 2016 - 2nd time tried from my cellar and still disappointing. Ruby red in color with mostly earth on the nose. Fruit totally lacking with mostly earth and a hint of spice on the palate. Same as last time tried 2 years ago. I don't find the fruit that other CT tasters find in this wine. Will hold my last 2 bottles for a few years and maybe some fruit will emerge.

    December 2, 2015 - Subtle nose but elegant. Floral. Light bodied, with noticeable tannins and bright acidity that verges on dominating the finish. Seems much younger than 10yrs. Needs more time.

    12.5% abv.

    November 29, 2015 - Pale ruby. Earthy, red-fruited ahd high pitched aromas of wet leaves and tree bark. Sappy and deep palate with tiny cranberry, mushrooms/ earth, and dirt. Silky smooth and surprisingly gripping finish. This needs a few more years. Very impressive at this price point (I paid $35 on release).

    (Chandon de Brialles Pernand Vergelesses 1er Cru "Ile des Vergelesses") Many 2005's are shutting down and showing awkwardly right now but after significant aeration they let you see a glimpse of the greatness. This had great depth and a fantastic midpalate. Crunchy red fruit and lots of spice, leather and earth. Thick and suave but with Grand Cru grip and finesse. This is a 20 year wine. Think I need a couple bottles of this. Love the style here of aggressive and sauvage wines based on finesse.
