Ledbury- light purple color, clean smells of red fruits mostly strawberry with a little earthiness. Very clean and well made wine, a very nice drink with a med long finish. Close to elegant or sophisticated but not quite in this vintage
The nose strongly suggested immense pleasure was forthcoming and it was in spades; joining in with the spicy, floral and red fruit aromatics was lots of strawberry, raspberry and light red cherry all being delivered in a silky smooth texture all the way through the back end; it was pure joy in a bottle and early on, a hard to beat candidate for WOTD which it easily became for me.
Fat Duck Lunch- clean purple color, a nose of strawberry and touch of animal The mouth had that great burgundy feel of energy but weightlessness. The wine was long but not endless and the tannins are pushing in around the edges. This was a real pleasure to drink and will continue to improve. It is a very good moose but prbly not a great one
Tasted blind. Had a beef blood/iron, green pepper and tobacco nose. There was a vegetal finish to this wine. I originally thought this was a late-80s wine from gevrey because of the power. Did not have the femininity of chambolle. Already developing tertiary characteristics, but more time will benefit this wine.

(Mugnier Musigny) was wild and open with meaty and gamy edges. There was a touch of sulfur, animal, and almost milky aromas, with wet stones and minerals to match. The palate was rich and alcoholic, a touch unbalanced with the alcohol, and much denser fruit-wise than any wine in the first flight. Despite its intensity and heavy finish, there was still balance and long, dry tannins
