    April 11, 2016 - So this is a $718 bottle of wine. To me it tastes like a $230 bottle. It definitely tastes like a Grand Cru, not the Premier Cru it says on the label, but a $230 Grand Cru. If you told me it tasted like a $280 Grand Cru, I wouldn't argue. Reasonable people can disagree. But to me it tastes like 230 dollars, maybe 250.

    October 30, 2015 - Absolutely superb nose of red fruit, roses, spice, earth and touch of mushroom. Amazingly fresh and vibrant on the palate. Keep growing in stature. Beautiful power and finesse. Easily GC quality.

    September 11, 2015 - Keith's Blind Challenge 2015 (The Medlar, London): Blind. Dense, smokey nose. Lighter on the palate. Younger Pinot. Classy burgundy. This is the real deal. Plush cherry depth with a bright silky texture. Good vintage Rousseau or Dujac. *****

    June 18, 2015 - I wanted to like this more, but it was rather tight. Tannins were hiding the fruit underneath. Nose and palate were a bit too austere, clearly a serious wine. Much nicer balance on the palate. Soft, a touch creamy. Slightly tart fruits

    (Rousseau Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Clos St. Jacques") This was great for the fifteen minutes it was open. After that this wine went into hibernation for the rest of the night. Glorious nose thought for a bit of deep red fruit, exotic spice and tons of wet earth plus nice spicey oak. Ripe and deep palate with some big tannins and glorious fruit. Long finish. Needs lots and lots of time. Decades. Great wine.
