Still a very good, very drinkable Bourgogne Rouge, but fading a bit. Fruit fading, and the oak is now dominant in the flavor profile. Look for this wine in future ripe vintages and pop and pour. If you still have the 2010, drink up.
Was preferred by most over several 1er Cru bottlings in my wine club's blind tasting of '10 Cote de Beaune. Incredible value in a red burgundy. Drinks well now with some short term aging potential. Well balanced. Great producer, better known for his whites.
12.5% - Clear, pale & bright ruby / clean, med intensity - redcurrant, rhubarb, dried cranberry, black tea, a hint of white pepper, very enjoyable burgundy nose / dry, med acidity, med- body, med to low tannin (still some grip), med intensity and length. Some citrus notes (orange peel). 87-88
More pinot nose than I remember from my last bottle. Stemmy, soapy tannins seem more obvious on the palate. Good fruit pokes through with time in the glass. Good finish. Think this will hold longer than I first estimated. Incredible value.
Shows you what a great producer can do with second rate fruit in a great vintage. Not much on the nose and not a lot of fruit on the palate, but oh so well balanced. Drinks somewhat like an old burgundy whose fruit has begun to fade. Incredible value, well worth seeking out. Drinking at peak but should hold for a few years.
What a treat this is, nose is a bit closed, no immediate pinot sniff, but subtle. color is an elegant transparent red, taste is fruity, strawberries, plums, hint of asparagus, spicy and medium finish. This is without a doubt a favorite of mine. although the 09 had a little bit more punch, the 10s are really good. Good times for Burgundy! Excellent value!
Exellent qpr! Has become somewhat of a house wine latley. More structure than the 2009, with some more minerals and a bit less ripe fruit. Fun to see this differance between 2009 & 2010 even at this level. But with a producer of this dignity, I guess that you should expect and get that result. I like this stuff!
