November 26, 2016 - A fantastic '08, generally a vintage I've had mediocre success with, but this is really firing and doesn't have the acidic shrill of many other producers this vintage. Nice clean red fruit, some pine and underbrush, and great aromatics. This is an excellent red Burgundy that will continue to get better over the next 3-5 years, but I don't see any reason to hold off now. Sad to say I paid 50% of what this costs today only 5 years ago. Sigh

December 22, 2013 - Pop 'n decant, followed over 8 hours...definitely early but checking in on these.
First pour was a bit muted, but it opens up a bit after a couple hours...nose of cranberry, black cherry, subtle baking spices underneath, hints of black tea, wet leaves, yeasty bread, mint, orange peel. Tart acidity could use some food to tame it. Finish grips pretty hard with fine tannins that still need some time to mellow.
Give these a few more years to come together, and they'll probably drink well for a couple more decades after that. 90+
