Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 90.8 points

  • Double decanted a couple of hours before service. Earthy, "animal", strong all came to mind. Really nice fruit with big tannins and good acidity. Paired extremely well with crispy veal cheeks.

  • Here is a wine that shows the importance of food pairing. This is a beast, concentrated, tannic, tart, structured, and the tannin, while ripe, is fuzzy and drying. On its own, you can sense that there's s lot of material here but it's hard to fully appreciate. Luckily, I paired this with duck confit, and wow -- suddenly the structure smoothed out, and the purity, concentration, and intensity of the fruit really showed through. Beguiling. Nowhere near ready to drink, though, and based on the fruit concentration and the imposing structure, this will last for decades yet,

  • Similar to the last bottle. To my palate a bit muddled; others liked it more than I.

  • Not sure the nature of the flaw, but this was not consistent with the last bottle I had. Murky in color, I was expecting this to be spoiled. In fact it was not bad. The foreground was notes of black tea with hints of the original fruit peeking through now and then. Possibly cooked? Actually a similar experience to the '72 DRC Richebourg from a few weeks back. Like that bottle, I found this interesting, if not a great enjoyment. Nonetheless, I ended up drinking the whole bottle.

  • Subtle and focused, but pretty tight and not showing a whole lot. Plenty of life left, so I am inclined to see how these develop with a bit more time.
