September 10, 2016 - Opened at a tasting of Beaune Pinot Noirs, I thought this wine showed very well and is just entering its prime drinking window. Bright, medium ruby red; very little sediment. Elegant floral and earthy nose. Ripe red fruits (raspberry, cherry) cut by an earthy minerality makes both it approachable and interesting.1 person found this helpful Comment

December 4, 2015 - Finished my only 2 bottles at my wine group's annual holiday lunch at Bibou. Tasted some from each bottle which were the same. Color showing maturity with slight browning at the rim and cherry at the core. Earthy nose with hints of licorice. Soft mature palate with cherry, raspberry, spice, earth and licorice. Nice balance and finish. I would drink up if you have it.
May 31, 2014 - Stinky merde nose covers up the raspberries and beef. The palate is very tasty with ripe raspberries strawberries and a hint of earth. Very good.

March 6, 2012 - As below, right to the bottom. Nose, palate, finish of a quality that enchants. The bottle was at a lower temperature than the others I've had, and the evolution of warming, both in the glass and inside the mouth, is just intensely pleasurable.

January 27, 2012 - A rich, enticing, and complex nose that makes you glad you've got this wine open. Well-rounded palate also with good balance, I totally agree with the fine tasting notes below. An excellent young red Burgundy.
