A great wine. Very enjoyable from the very beginning. The nose started light but with good complexity. It gets better over time when opened up. A bit tight on the palate in the beginning. It's very balanced. Good complexity with dense flavors after 2-3 hours.
in a flight with the 03 and 05. this bottle rocked and fired on all cylinders tonight for me. starts out with a racy edge of gorgeous fruit, licorice, blackberry and spice. spice was a nice foil that i didnt necessarily find in the 03 or 05. big full palate with a lushness that doesnt over do it. good acid balance as well. finish was the best of the three for me. nice full and good length.
Wow--pretty awesome wine. Does not taste like it's 7-years old. I think this is still my favorite vintage of Aubert Pinot (have not tasted the '09s yet), and this bottle didn't do anything to disabuse me of that notion :-) Rich yet vibrant, this went well with a chicken/sage cream sauce combination. The cream sauce brought out some of the acidity in the wine. Even now, after it's been open for 3+ hours, it is still awesome and probable could have stood to be decanted for 60 minutes. Too bad this is the last bottle. If you have this, it definitely has legs to last several more years. (PE: 95)
Nirvana, or close to it. Picked over the '04 UV for a simple roasted chicken. Well, there were some other 'shroom things happening. In a zone, sorry, but it was so sexy that I'm beyond objective notes.
