January 29, 2017 - Beautiful nose of leather, cherry skins, and smoke followed by a mixture of red and black fruit, round tannins, spice and Gevery structure. This is starting to enter the middle part of what could be a wide drinking window. One of the best village 05's I've tasted.1 person found this helpful Comment

November 20, 2015 - Racy cherries with some notes of mushroom earthy spice. Still tight woven and needs more time.

November 16, 2015 - Alex's bottle, drank at Sinma. This was a good village wine. At an awkward place at the moment, but the quality shines through. On the nose, high-toned notes of sweet cherries, red berries and bits of mineral and brambly spice mingled together to form a nicely attractive bouquet. Unfortunately, the palate had a rather shut-down quality to it, with a certain awkward tightness at its core, but there was still a decent depth and nice structure and freshness showing through its bright flavours of cherries and berries, which were spliced with fine tannins and tons of citrusy acidity. Clearly good, if not quite fully enjoyable at the moment, this was a true 2005, built to last for decades even at the village level, with lovely gobs of sappy fruit wed to wonderful freshness and firm structure. I would love to try this again in 5-6 years, but suspect its peak may come even further down the road. 90+

November 7, 2015 - 2015 Villa d’Este Wine Symposium - Kelly and Kevin's excellent adventure; 11/3/2015-11/9/2015 (Villa D’este, Lake Como): Quite youthful nose displaying candied cherry fruit, sweet spices, beautifully perfumed, a hint of licorice and earth. Clean and polished palate, good concentration, bright candied red fruit driven palate impression and clean finish. Really delicious.

(Domaine Armand Rousseau Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin) Sappy, strawberry palate, with very good acidity; medium finish
By Bill Nanson
(Rousseau Armand Gevrey-Chambertin) The nose is a little animale. In the mouth it’s soft and ripe with impressively fine tannin. Clearly an executive villages. Impressive, but could it have been a little fresher?
