EVS -- Wild game and wilder wines dinner: Just a wonderful nose or dark meaty fruit. Young but complex, this wine is well integrated already, with softening tannins adding to the complexity and feel. Wild blackberry and dark fruit taste adds to the overall balance by combining complex mineral aromas with natural sweetness. Drinking well now.
2009 Red Burgundy - BLIND (NY, NY): A bit fuller than some of the others. Some more fruit poking through. Showing secondary notes already. quite complex. a crowd pleaser for this group. Finished in 3rd out of 12 wines.
Rubino riflessi granato, limpido, naso chiuso, poi pian piano si distende su note di fruttini rossi fragranti, croccanti, fiori rossi, spezie dolci e ritorni minerali, bocca fresca, scattante, tannino fitto e dolce, frutto fresco con chiusura abbastanza sapida che invoglia il sorso, bottiglia bevuta in due senza mangiare mentre preparavamo la cena!
Light garnet, very earthy and secondary aromas and a tired, not much fruit left but not oxidized. Smells like a 10 year old bottle. I don't think this btl. is representative, probably corked. Wow, second time with no luck of the 09 Chevillons, bad batch or bad merchant? I remember the 2002 of this being a terrific wine. This producer was introduced to me by a burgundy lover from Asia.
