  • First night notes. Bright, limpid, medium maroon with a little bricking on the rim and a clear meniscus. Thick legs. Initial nose is black pepper, licorice and a faint hit of animal in the background. Nice fruit on the intial palate. Terrific balance between the fruit, acidity and tannins on the mid-palate, with good concentration. The finish is a little hollow. Nice minerality lurking in the background.
    On the second night this bottle really came to life: the bouquet gained an extra layer of complexity; the structure, which seemed a little disjointed the first night, really tightened up with nice focus and concentration; the hollowness on the back palate filled out. Very distinct minerality that lingers for a very long time.

  • Showing a little bretty character that I do not remember in a previous bottle. Fruit is still there in a dar and dense sort of way by Beaune standards. The gamey-ness is apparent though and is beyond being a secondary character. Still drinkable but if this is the course this wine is taking they will need to be consumed sooner than later.

  • Light, transparent color. Earthy, grassy, acidic nose. Cherries on the front palate followed by leathery tannin balanced with good acid. Medium long finish. Drinking well now, will be good for another 5 years at least. Great value for 1st Cru.
