Leiden tasting: just another day.: Nose mature, sweet, red fruit, sulpher, kirsch, grass, some 2004 greenness (some found this obvious, others hardly noticed). Taste red fruit, sweet, some earth, a bit vanilla in the background. Concentrated beautifull wine. Finish lingers on.
Opened up with an austere nose, I really yearn for this scent, very classic and beautiful. I didn't expect from the vintage like this. Moreover, with time passed by, the nose has changed " perfume " ...very sexy style. After 2 hours, it represents the organic fragrant of Pacalet's stem and/or Prieure Roch. Then finally, at the 4th hour, the strong medium toasted oak appears so nice. it is just like drinking 4 wines in 1 bottle.
Full-bodied, huge, dense, concentrate in texture but ready to enjoy, very delicious with dimensions. I'd like to buy more bottles.
Aftertaste is stunning, deep, compact and powerful long finished. I'd like to buy few more cases if possible.

...and when the wine's getting old, very old, can you imagine ?
...The wine can talk, ...the terroir can speak, ...and the secret can whisper...careless whisper...
I had this last night. It is a quintessential burgundy lovely to drink now but serious enough. Aroma of red and black cherries and violets. On the palate very seamless, quite sweet on the entry that broadens in the mid-palate with ripe cherry fruit and touch of earth, very well integrated and lightly oaked. Not much acidity or tannin here, sits very much on its fruit. Finishes with good length.

(Geantet-Pansiot Charmes-Chambertin) Medium-plus cherry red colour. A high toned and wide nose that mixes red and blue-skinned fruits. A wonderfully effusive wine with excellent acidity and super depth. There’s a real extra dimension of fruit on the mid-palate before going into a discrete but long finish. The tannins are completely buried by the fruit. A few of the previous wines are longer but this wine is a compelling ‘complete package’.
