A darker and more organic bottle than others I have had. Deep dark fruit, dark soil notes, and faint old tar notes. Textural tannins with no grip, emerging floral notes on the nose but can't yet fully break free. 95+
A somewhat angular nose on this bottle that showed younger than it typically has in recent experiences. Light wood notes remaining that mellow with air time, exotic spice notes. Young and forward bottle. Palate as well was 5 years away from peak approachability. 94+
This was fitting to be the last & final wine, as the sommelier has placed it. I believe this kinda "woke" everybody up again after the Hudelot high. Nose was throwing up lots of spice, red-cherries, plums, sandalwood. Palate was red-fruited, pure, broad yet packed with power & energy and balanced with nice freshness. We were probably drinking this a tad too young. But when Burgs are great, they are great & enjoyable young too. Bravo!
