    August 22, 2015 - I don't really know what to write! Perhaps some incarnation of red Riesling. Lean, super vital (!!! - Yeah really), precise semi-dark red berry fruit and packed with slightly mean-elevated stealy character. Best and unfourtunately last bottle I had. Really spec considering age and vintage!!!

    July 20, 2014 - Pretty much the same like in March. The temperature surroundings were close to suboptimal. Anyway, totally astounding village from a
    miserable vintage.

    July 18, 2014 - BYOW tasting (Chris Home): I completely agree with Oh Dae-su´s tasting note, couldn´t add much more to his descripton. A very earthy nose with a lot of mirepoix, later a bit more subtle fruit like strawberries. Palate was very good for a Village wine at this age from this vintage. Still some tannins left. Again very earthy & stony. Drink up soon.

    March 22, 2014 - The corona showed obvious discolourations, in the core still surprisingly vital; the nose was really earthy, a bit barn stinky, undergrowth, rustic, a bit green and still some typical clear and straight Rousseau fruit characteristics; the taste was very solid and and well developed, a bit rustic and slightly tannin rough – but overall in extremely surprising good shape, good (a bit tart) finish as well, perhaps not the most subtle and complex Gevrey-Chambertin from Rousseau – but (again) really shockingly good and full of life for a 20 year old village from a mostly miserable vintage.
    BIG SURPRISE! This bottle came from a really good storage. Perhaps one explanation for its good “physique” ...
