Borgogna: Mimose, minerale, frutta scura in gelatina, buccia d'uva nera matura. sobrietà e potenza sotterranea. Integro e robusto, un classico 2005. In bocca sprigiona potenza, astringenza, pochissimo peso, molto intenso e molto molto duro. Da pasto sicuramente.
d'Angerville dinner at Daniel 10/19/2011 (Daniel): Deepest blood ruby. Epic, gigantic nose of caramel, coffee, well-roasted hazelnuts, herbaceousness. Wow! Coffee, over and over, the highest register, most precise essence of coffee that you can imagine. This must be a vineyard characteristic, because all the Ducs had it. Palate is huge and clenched tight as Leona Helmsley's pocketbook. Not ready by a very long shot. Tasty sweetness on the long finish. Splendid. Try in 10+...
D'Angerville Dinner at Daniel w Guillaume D'Angerville (Restaurant Daniel): Medium ruby. Wow! Spicy and sweet, blood and iron. Cocoa and mocha - coffee. Really complex and sweet. Very closed on the palate, w dusty tannins. Showing some blood and cherries. Easy to see the potential in this wine - it will be a monument when it finally comes around. Will score this based on the visible trajectory. The most closed of the three 05 D'Angervilles I have had recently (please see my notes on the 05 Taillepieds and Caillerets from Thalassa). Nose - 6/6, Palate - (5+)/6, Finish - (5+)/6, Je Ne Sais Quoi - 2/2 = (18+)/20.
Volnay and its Environs (Domaine McClure Roberts): delicious. black fruit, mint, very soft, powdery tannins. strong fruit notes without any sense of syrup/jam. crescendos from the late midpalate into a medium(+) finish that really brings it all together.

(Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Clos des Ducs) Aromatically complete with width and depth to the red-shaded fruits. Fully packed in your mouth - plenty of tannin, but it’s the incredible intensity that eventually makes you swallow - very, very impressive.
