She has aged impressively well, showing what a fine pedigree can achieve during a difficult vintage. Tobacco leaf, cedar, plum sauce, black cherry and wet earth. A seductive and echoing finish, showcasing intelligible layers; she is within a perfect stride at the moment and not holding back at all. Decanted for two hours and the colour is a violet and crimson core, with a lightening rim, not showing any bricking. Drink now - 2024.
I was uncertain how this wine would drink, given the vintage and the provenance. A nice bottle, but if fell short of what it could be. A little thin, the fruit was dominated by intense bell pepper and spice. Short finish.
This wine is not stable at this moment but very nice to drink. It should be better than this or may be...because of the wine next to it which is super great 2009 Montrachet from Bouchard Pere et Fils so...

I was a big moment to try such a celebrity wine despite the millesime which isn't the famous. Colour was smooth but still very nice. Nose smelt good and the wine openning after 1 hour. Fine, perfect balance of fruit and tertiary aroma. In mouth, very exceptionnal wine, fine & strong with lot of compelxity. Evolving! stay for a long time after drinking. I agree I was certainly influence by the prestige of the bootle, however it was a great moment. enjoy
Beautiful red fruit and cassis that's 1/2 tertiary; light leather and a touch spicy; super silky, amazing concentration but very light on its feet; great mixture of subtle mineral and tobacco; sour cherry finish, tingly, amazing long finish; Complex, lovely and special. it shows.
