Zachys Pre-Paulee Fete (Lafayette - New York NY): Black and red cherry aromas, similar flavors with some sweet berry as well, all with great spice. Dense and meaty, this started very accessible, got leaner and less forward with more time in glass. Very good now, better in the future. Fun to have this served alongside Clos Lambrays 2002.
This largest Grand Cru Monopole is located between Bonnes Mares and Clos des Lambrays. The color was dark purple. Rich and complex on the nose, full textured on the palate, still round with some attractive more hidden dark fruit with spice and earth. Ending with a long powerful massive finish. A fascinating wine to follow over the coming years and decades.

(Mommessin Clos du Tart) Medium-plus colour. The nose shouts deep, black-edged, creamy cherry and a little coffee - not so wide. The soft entry delivers you sweet, interesting red-shaded fruit The tannins are very well covered by the concentrated fruit - builds well from the mid-palate into a super, mouth-watering finish - it just melts away. Today it's certainly a hedonist's wine rather than an intellectual wine - but if, with time, it builds some complexity it will be a very fine bottle.
