  • Starting to evolve and be approachable excellent wine

    Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment

  • Monster, stacked 2010. Meaty and sauvage but loads of energy provided by the acidity. Very red fruited, raspberry. Great juice but needs a lot of time.

  • Stunning! Powerfull but delicate. Sharpness, fruit like ripe raspberry, tannins, body and minerality. Delightfull nose. Excellent now and will last for a long time.

  • So much going on here! The fruit is mostly that ripe, dark cassisy/plum typical to good nuits, but there are more reddish raspberry elements as well as dark blackberry notes as well. I also got a hint of spice, some foresty qualities, a gamebird flavor that distinctly reminds me of squab, a fair amout of cocoa, and a whole lot of earthy soil. All of these flavors are present on the palate as well, where there's quite a lot of tannic structure holding together the impressive midpalate concentration. If there's a nit here, it's that the tannins, while not astringent, are drying and not especially elegant, but there's enough concentration and extract to buffer the tannin and keep the wine thoroughly enjoyable with 30-45 minutes of air. If those tannins ever smooth out and resolve with bottle age this could be a real stunner. Even young, this is an excellent wine and, while not cheap, a considerable value as far as CDN 1ers go.

  • much deeper color than the village wine, this one is med/med(+) ruby with a fairly deep core.

    On the nose, there's much more dark fruit than in the village wine, with black cherry and plum being prominent, as well as the red fruits I would expect. The fruit is riper as well, but there's still a little tart fruit in there. I could almost think this was from Oregon in a lean vintage from an elegant producer. There's a cooling herbal, almost medicinal note that I could call eucalyptus. The nose seems denser than that of the village wine. There's also the brambly quality here, and other types of fresh herbs.

    med body, med(+) acid (but not quite as high as on the village). same profile as the nose. richer than the village, and longer, more complete finish. really long. solidly very good with plenty of room for improvement. I should buy more of this.
