  • Un nez carrément hallucinant. M’en suis gardé un fonds de verre toute la soirée et le nez était aussi enivrant lors de mon départ. Très floral, ouvert et beaucoup plus accessible que l’Echezeaux 2008 et Corton 2009 bu l’an dernier. Épices, fruits rouges, finesse mais je m’attendais à un peu plus de longeur.

  • L’inimitable et hypnotisante signature florale du Domaine. Un fruit plus mur, et une superbe délicatesse. Du bonheur en bouteille. 94

  • La différence stylistique entre les deux millésimes est évidente. Celui-ci est plus riche et généreux, sans sombrer dans l’excès ou la facilité. La bouche est veloutée, généreuse, fine et élégante. Le fruit est plus mûr et concentré. Longue finale épicée, en douceur. Une autre excellente bouteille qui ne déçoit pas, et qui a plu davantage à nos douces, elles qui ne sont pas de grandes passionnées de vin. 92-93

  • A private dinner (Restaurant Schloss Schauenstein ***, Fürstenau, Switzerland): Incredibly beautiful nose, aromatic yet calm, deep yet ethereal, roses and Asian spice, rosehip, cherry and crushed red berries, subtle and layered, new oak completely absorbed, freshness from the stalks, an essence of Vosne; after about an hour it goes through a riper, more forward phase when it loses a bit of its subtlety and nuance, before almost returning to its original state; on the palate a wonderfully silky and creamy texture, incredibly elegant and beguiling, seamless and sexy, perfectly balanced, fresh without even a hint of dryness and the perfect coolness from the limestone bedrock, lovely stuffing of sweet and ripe, complex fruit, its flavours ranging from peach to black cherry, develops floral notes; on the palate too, it goes through a more tannic and plummy phase, with a hint of liquorice; excellent length, complete finish. A stunning wine, drinking beautifully now and from 2020, although it is unlikely shut down completely.

  • Medium red color with medium transparency. Beguiling aromas of red, blue, and black fruit with vanilla, spice, and floral elements intermingling. Palate is initially sweet and red fruited but opens up and expands with some time in the glass. This has the silky texture and kaleidoscopic character I seek in great Pinot Noir. The finish is medium-long and this is a compelling drink right now. I expect it to shut down and emerge later as a lovely bottle for the early long term (say 15-20 years), but no need to wait if you have its siblings in reserve for later. Drink or hold.
