August 23, 2014 - 2002 is starting to drink very well, this wine was big but elegant. A wow wine for sure from an underrated producer.,
November 26, 2013 - A rather un- inspiring bottle which started off a bit muted and monolithic. Our hopes for improvement as the wine set in the decanter were diminished; after several hrs as the wine continued to loose whatever little fruit was evident early on. I kept it refrigerated for several more days hoping for a comeback which never materialized.

October 10, 2013 - Another Casual Burgundy Dinner (Storefront Company - Chicago IL): Red and black fruit aromas with some subtle earth and spice. Starts off subtle, picks up more power towards middle and end. Good balance.
July 8, 2013 - I don't see how anyone could think of this as Burgundy. To me this wine was more about the wine maker and less about the vinyard. The nose was the most interesting part of this wine...but only for the first 20 minutes...after that it was kind of blah. This was so extracted and dense that it could have been a California Pinot Noir to my thoughts. Just a mess...I hope time saves this wine. Right now I would buy this if I saw it in a store for $30/bottle.

August 21, 2011 - Classic Beze. Dark fruits with a touch of cherry and raspberry, fine tannins and solid but not overpowering acidity. Still tightly wound and will need several years to gain weight and come around.
