Slow-ox 30 minutes, tasted over 3 hrs and day 2 -dark maroon with mild bricking -plum ripe cherry stewed prunes slight scorched element -lower acidity, med weight/concentration with some faded but quite sweet plum/black fruit over an earthy core, coffee notes with a little heat and residual med tannins on the average length finish; tannins better integrated and cooked features less prominent on day 2 -OK but not particularly transcending the vintage, might have a couple years of upside to resolve more of the tannic structure
Better than I remember the '03 Chevillons being on release, this isn't roasted or pruney, but it is very ripe and a tad flabby. Popular at table, but for me lacking any NSG character - more like Cali PN. B-/C+
First one to try. Ten years after the vintage is normally too soon for a Pruliers but given the heat of 2013 it seemed worthwhile to check in. Opened let it briefly breathe for abouy 40 minutes, then drank over several hours. At first thtere was nothing but brawny tannin on the palate, which gave way to mildly stewed red fruit, earth, spice and funk. As with other 03 Burgundy the spice was muted. There was decent complexity in this wine but never anything outstanding either, as there was always an unfortunate sweet note to distract.I will check back in five years. Very Good.
It has lost some of the fruit over the last couple of years. Still soft tannins left and the wine can easily live another five years. Stable in the nose. The wine improved over time while open. We started drinking it after 1 hour without decanting. Wonderful glas of pinot.
