Seasonal dinner (Seasonal, NYC): Great stuff. Powerful yet elegant; dark fruited and savoury with fantastic depth and balance, still a little tannic on the back end with the structure and the freshness suggesting this is still rather youthful, but what a pleasure to drink now.
Chevillon Dinner, 1990-2002 (Lupa Restaurant, San Francisco): Most mature looking wine of the bunch. Here's the nose that jumped out of the glass and seduced most of the people at the table. Irresistibly complex Burgundy aromas, silky fruit with perfect balancing acidity, and some tannins still left to fade away. Gorgeous, complete example that is positively feminine in the context of the rest of these wines. My hands down favorite.
Wow this is not nearly ready. The nose is fairly dumb but with a wonderful earthy hint. Really tightly wound but with a beautiful precision and elegance - not a burly Nuits character at all, especially considering its Les Cailles, which has a tendency to turn out pretty masculine wines. The palate is closed but the tannins are really refined and I'm blown away by its texture and balance, can't wait for the fruit to come out of its shell. I won't be going back to this for a couple of years at least.
