as always this wine pleased the crowd, was full and rich with loads of palate, but this time in addition to the nice fruit / acid combo i started to get some secondary spices… very nice night for this bottle, had at Sacred Heart Schools cioppino dinner
Un vin qui se laisse très bien dégusté dans sa forme actuelle. Le fruité est généreux, tendre, luxuriant, et d'excellente concentration. Pas le plus élégant ou le plus fin des vins, mais il nous donne beaucoup pour le prix qu'il commande, dans une forme gourmande. Un terroir qui donne de meilleurs vins dans les années plus chaudes comme 2009. 89-90
this wine performed well, but seemed a little shut down or simplified relative to my previous experiences, may have suffered next to sherwin family '04 cab which blew us away, this was nice easy drinking but simple with no secondary notes like earth, spice, tannin, grip etc, have a case more so hoping this is temporary dip
wow was i impressed with this, fits my hypothesis that in good years with ripeness Beaune wines benefit disproportionately to their gen'ly more well respected Nuits counterparts, dark ruby/purple color - looking young as u wld expect, immediate funk on the nose which turned fruity (blue/bk) within minutes, big nose of ripe fruit with just a touch of spice for an accent, palate was big too -- both fruit and some light spice (cinnamon?), big but not overdone with good acidity (1st comment from joe was love that acid)... i am optimistic that this wine's fruit will continue to be big and the secondary flavors will build... definite buy / great QPR... this could go up 2 or more points over time
