Much better than the Stacole bottles. Not a bad bottle among the 9 consumed. But flavors are all earth, minerals, no real presence of fruit. Still some preferred it over the Rousseau CDLR, but not many.
Back vintages from three Burgundy producers with Tryffelsvinet (Grappe, Stockholm): Nose with cherries, spice, smoke, animal notes, some herbaceous and green notes with undergrowth. The palate is medium bodied+ with spice, mineral, strawberries and cherries, somewhat too present tannins, and a slightly angular impression. The nose is better than the palate. 89 p This was definitely a good 2004, but unfortunately it still shows quite a lot of the 2004 character on the palate.
Did not show particularly well in the comparison with Damoy and Mugneret Ruchottes. maybe still on the early side. But you can sense the stuffing is there for a future better showing. Especially on the finish.
Tasted alongside a bottle of the same wine from another source. This bottle was as expected. Wjhile it showed the acidity of the vintage, the fruit was still alive and the wine was in pretty good balance and not in danger of fading. No evidence of the ladybug influence here.
