August 19, 2014 - In a really great place right now. Such a nice balance of primary 05 fruit and secondary flavors - it's almost 50/50. Combine this with a silky smooth body, and it's a winner.
$25 on winebid. Was 95% sure this one would crap the bed (winebid + burgundy + few years of age). Nice to be pleasantly surprised!1 person found this helpful Comment

July 7, 2013 - Beautiful balance of herbs and earth notes with dark fruit. Acidity just right. Medium body and moderate to long finish. This wine has evolved consistently and in the right direction over the past few years. Ready and have to believe years ahead for my remaining 5 bottles.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 21, 2012 - Deep cherry red. An almost imperceptible barnyard waft, noticeably fading to none, leaving a light note of cloves and freshly crushed ripe red raspberries. Outstanding value burgundy, medium-light bodied, elegant, understated.

August 26, 2012 - Solid mid-level Burgundy from "bargain" commune. Smoky, red berries, good acidity. Solid core and concentration. Very enjoyable.
