  • One of those wines where the nose if far superior to the palate. All you would want in a serious burg - red cherry fruit still with some secondary spice and campher, some mushrooms etc,. The palate however was quite flat and simple and lacked drive and complexity. Shortish and clipped finish. Not really up to grand cru level.

  • Not really typical - a bit too forceful/extracted for a '98 Grand Cru. Maybe a little brett - lots of fruit but not the type of laying one should get in a 14 year old Grand Cru from a decent vintage.

  • Fro whatever reason, not as enjoyable as the previous bottle. My thoughts on this one are more JAKurek's -- missing the wow factor. May be just bottle variation. Who knows? This was my last. Another of life's mysteries.

  • I am somewhat inexperienced when it comes to Burgundy (I tend to drink Bordeaux); nevertheless, the quality of this wine was easy to discern. In looking at some previous TNs, I agree with Richard Jennings's comments, although I smelled no chlorine. Very nicely made wine -- tannins sufficiently present to complement the fruit and other flavors. Just a delicious bottle. I have one more, and I think I will drink it in the near term -- with a roast of some kind this winter. It's drinking very well now, and from many reports, the shelf life of Burgundy is not as long as it is for other wines, particularly in comparison to Bordeaux.
