  • 2006 Gros Frère et Sœur Clos Vougeot Musigni

    This showed well granted that as most 2006 Burgundy wine it is shut down. In other words, it's progressing in the right direction.
    It showed that When Gros Frère et Soeur gets it right, the wines are excellent. Aromas of dark fruit and warm earth. It has savoury characters and hot ferments lift the wine in interesting ways. While the nose is giving and very promising the palate shuts down from mid palate onwards. It has a good grip, excellent ripe and lacy tannins and a tight acidic backbone. Everything in this wine suggests that the Musigni climat does share many of the characteristics of the big brother just on the other side of the western wall and across the narrow road. Very good and promising.

  • 2009 Sylvie Esmonin (Michel et Fille) Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques

    Dark and opaque; surprisingly dense. Lifted toasted notes of oak, vanilla, spicy plums and plush dark cherries. There are spices (full-stem influence) and game character but vintage influence (I’m immediately thinking 2009) dominates; this is very ripe and tary. Very ripe, dusty, dry and astringent tannins with mid-palates of spicy plums and rich fruit. This is resting on the sweetness of fruit and oak. This is extractive and overworked winemaking. Hard to find any characteristics linked to place and varietal.

    Group ranking 10th My ranking: 10th

  • 2003 Domaine de Courcel Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens

    Followed over three nights. On opening this is bright red fruit freshly crushed and dried, iodine and iron. Immediately evokes Rugiens with its iron grip and its appealing weight and lift. On palate, this has sweet fruit, long velvety tannins, good weight and concentration, but dries out a bit on the finish. As the wine opens up, the fruit gets darker and tighter and this continues over the next two nights. Yes it's a 2003, but this suggests to me that this is far from being at its peak. There's plenty of matière to let this unfurled over the years. I suspect it will always have a bit of a drying finish but to me this is already very expressive of its place first and its vintage second.
