Compact, tight and linear on the palate but with a very high expression on the nose. Taught on the finish as well resolving in its acids in tannin. In other words, appears at this point to be absolutely classy wine but still needs more time. Frankly, I might give this guy another three years before trying a bottle. But the stuffing is there.
I'm a big fan of the Audoin wines, but this was my first time trying Les Favières. Allen Meadows rates it the highest of all the Audoin crus and says it compares favorably to many premiers crus; I can see why. The wine was closed upon opening, but became delicious after 90 minutes or so. It is a substantial and serious wine, with more power and substance than other Audoin wines I have tasted. It has a streak of pepper and even five spice that is balanced by beautiful cherry fruit notes. Initially, I tasted a "hot" quality on the finish that I associate with high alcohol wines (though I doubt that is going on here). In any case, this quality disappeared with time. I expect this wine will improve with age for some time. Excellent qpr.
Un vin que j'ai adoré dans le millésime 2009. Le 2010 est plus fermé, plus sérieux avec une plus grande structure. Au prix des bourgognes aujourd'hui, ce vin présente une belle complexité avec beaucoup de fond. Il reste les tannins à se fondre, de façon à permettre au nez d'être plus ouvert. On goûte la cerise mûre. 91 sur 100 en l'état, plus à maturité.
C'est mon second essai après le 2006. Là on voit bien que la dureté rustique de ce vin est une caractéristique en jeunesse. Les tannins sont toujours mordants et le fruit peine à surnager. C'est sérieux , peu charmeur , et ça demandera une patience peu commune pour un Marsannay. Prix relativement élevé.
A deeper and more substantial wine than the Longeroies from a few nights ago. This is more tannic, showing more oak. Lots of deep red fruit and nice spice. This is very mineral-driven and at the moment somewhat tough and austere; the Longeroies is much easier to drink at this stage and much more perfumed, but the remaining bottles of both vineyards will rest for awhile.
