beautiful wine. Very deeply colored, almost dense. Fruit very bright reds, but fully open and still primary. It has a long life ahead, but its so good now why wait? It was WOTN against some Meo, Vogue and Leroy GC's.
WTF? The first of the bottles purchased on release, and it bore little resemblance to an ethereal bottle consumed 3/12 in Alsace. By comparison, the aromatics and palate were muted and lacking interest. No sign of heat damage in shipment to the US, but something is certainly different with this bottle.
Score is based solely on 'flavor'. It's a good, big wine. Prob needs a decade before it settles down. Fine to drink now as long as you want to drink something from either Sonoma or the mid-coast region in Calif. Would be an excellent Kistler!
tasted blind, never would have guessed chambolle. flavor profile is much more gevrey with dark berry fruits and a bit of the animale. none of the elegance and delicacy that i would associate with chambolle. for me, the wine was bit over-extracted and heavy handed. while certainly a pleasurable drink, i wish the wine had more transparency.
