Much better than the last bottle. Darkish garnet-brown. Warmer style of Pinot, but still all in balance. Cherries and undergrowth. Everything is well integrated now; none of the astringency I found when I first bought this. Good concentration. I think this will improve still.
Dark garnet colour, maybe some browning. Typical Pinot profile, but on the darker fruited side reflecting the warmer vintage: blackberries, cherries and undergrowth. Some heat on the finish. Good wine but not super complex - it is only a Bourgogne after all. Still somewhat youthful, but I'm on the fence as to whether this will improve or become more alcohol dominated with a couple more years in the cellar. We'll see.
On the first day a bit unnevingly fruitful, disjoint, ripe, dark and smokey. Still very juvenile. On the second day still a ripe kind of Pinot. Pretty much a 2009er. However far more integrated. I had cherry coke, dusty dark chocolate, some dried beef and hints of assorted, slightly brown appearing, herbs. If you are not into hyper fruitful Pinots, I suggest to give it some air. It will benefit! First day: 84 P, second day 87 P
