Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 89.5 points

  • Nose: Complex and deep with Blackberry, Cherry and Raspberry fruit, but it is the earthy, spice and savory notes that set this off. Palate: Needs about 20 minutes in glass to unwind, but a mineral inflected, earthy, sweet and powerful wine emerges. So much going on. Finish: A bit tart and occasionally short. Still showing nice fruit from the vintage and a streak of oak.

  • Elusive, coy and enigmatic in a way that makes you work. Tart and somewhat stingy, but interesting. The flavor comes in waves- one sip it's there, the next it's not. This is a wine only a Burgundy lover could love, and it's pretty much why I stopped buying Burgundies and have become a Rhone ranger. In EVERY parameter and at every price point you get so much more bang for your buck in Rhones north and south. I know that a great Burgundy is THE transcendent experience in the world of wine. but you have to break the bank trying- and even then god knows what you're going to wind up with at any price.
    This is a mediocre but drinkable Village wine that reflects the general sorry state of affairs for Burgundy lovers on any kind of budget.

  • Ripe blackberry with a touch of liqueur aromas. Similar lush and ripe on palate with some background spice and traces of some Gevrey animale character. Perhaps not quite as vibrant and exciting as I recall from when tasted at the Domaine from barrel, but still very impressive for its level.

  • Lignier-Michelot Visit and Tasting (Morey St.-Denis): Tasting at winery. Darker fruit on nose with aromas of slowly braised meat. Black cherry flavors with good spice that pick up weight, density and power on finish. Impressive Villages. Wine to seek out. 20% whole cluster, which seems to be more common in 2009 for Gevrey than I've ever heard before. From 2 plots in Gevrey, which Virgile says each provide unique character to make a more complete wine.
