    August 15, 2014 - A whole bunch of great wines with new and old friends (Marblehead, Ohio): I really like Grofffier especially in 2002. Some feel he is a bit heavy handed but with 12 years from vintage, this wine is drinking pure Burgundy. Pop and pour, it took about an hour or so to open up. The nose is gorgeous with cherries and slight merde and a bit of floral and perhaps some tarragon. Feminine. Soft texture. Complex layers to drink. No hurry but this was very pretty. right now the nose is better than the palate, slightly, but I think some time in the cellar and it catches up.

    December 4, 2013 - Iron fist (vintage)in silky glove (Chambolle)
    Delicate yet delicious bottle full of meaty, flowery and mineral aromas for a vivid acidity on the palate.
    Velvety texture and nice persistence.
    Drinking very well at this point pairing best rissoto in earth for Nat and grilled red tuna for me.

    Puño de hierro (añada) en guante de seda (Chambolle).
    Botella delicada aunque deliciosa llena de aromas cárnicos, floreados, ahumados y minerales para una vivida acidez en boca.
    Textura aterciopelada y de buena persistencia.
    Se bebe muy bien ahora acompañando el mejor rissoto para Nat y un atún rojo a la plancha para mi.

    November 16, 2013 - Groffier Tasting, Mostly 2011s with Some Older Gems (Knightsbridge - Northbrook IL): Open 3 hours before serving. Dark cherry aromas and flavors with some hints of licorice, Robitussin and espresso. Dark and compact on palate as well, still a bit firm and showing its "baby Bonnes Mares" character.

    August 30, 2013 - Still moderately deep ruby. It begins as many Groffiers do-oaky, ground coffee tones, and rather full for the appellation. Excellent underlying acidity as well as piquant strawberry and cherry fruit, though. By the end of the bottle, some secondary aromatics and a lighter, more airy feel that at least bear some connection to the terroir. I wish we had given this particular bottle a 2 or 3 hour head start by decanting. In the end, pretty good but little nuance.

    May 29, 2013 - Day1: Slow ox for 3 hours.

    From what I’ve read, this is very much what I imagine Chambolle to be …very feminine.

    The wine has a beautiful nose of light red fruit, a touch of spice, sous bois, and a scent I equate to “autumn tea leaves.” (not sure how else to describe it.)

    The wine has a very nice mid-weight palate. Very little attack, but the mid just drips with soft red cherries. The acid was well balanced. Very fresh and crisp, but still a bit tender. The acid keeps the wine lively, but does not dominate. There are just enough tannins to hold the backbone. Beyond that, they are very unobtrusive.

    The only dissonant note is the finish. It is short to mid length, but it doesn’t end crisp, leaving you wanting more. Its more like everything fades away leaving a bit of heat and green tannic flavor. Its strange because those flavors aren’t in the wine until the very end. It reminds me of listening to a symphony where all the instruments in harmony slowly fade away leaving only a kazoo to play the final note.

    Strange ending … Will see how it changes on Day 2.
