  • An odd bottle. This had been opened the evening before and I was told it came across as lean and thin. Today it was still lean but showed a bitter edge I'd never expect from this producer in this vintage. Somehow flawed?

  • Dégustation Bourgogne et Bordeaux 2005 (Restaurant Chez Christophe): Un nez boisé, discret.
    Belle bouche en attaque, avec toutefois un boisé qui ressort ensuite, c'est moderne et une structure assez imposante. Je n'aime pas beaucoup en l'état, c'est fermé, mais tes tanins sont bien fins. Un peu inquiétant à près de 10 ans d'âge.... 89-90(+) pts) ?

  • Je voulais goûter un vin issu du millésime 2005, afin de surveiller leur évolution. Si celui-ci est représentatif de l’ensemble, il faudra les attendre encore très longtemps. Dégusté sur 3 heures, il n’a pas bougé d’un poil tout au long de la soirée. D’un bloc et plutôt fermé, tannins fins, concentration incroyable, délicat, bouquet peu développé, sur les fruits noirs et rouges, et doté d’un équilibre magistrale. Très minéral, comme c’est souvent le cas avec les vins d’Angerville. La structure pour durer des décennies. À revisiter dans 5 à 10 ans. Un grand vin en devenir.

  • My WOTN and the Charles Woodson of the table. This is shut down hard, and it takes the kind of guy who loves Lafarge and Gouges to enjoy this. I am that guy. This is a coiled up, ultra-concentrated ball of Burgundy awesomeness, with mostly red fruit mixed with some darker fruit, an incredible, textbook Taillepieds iron-fillings core, and the ripest tannin you can imagine. I would KILL to taste this in 15 years, but even now with a bit of air and some pasta with butter and black truffles, this blows me away with its balance and concentration. Like watching LeBron as an 11-year old; its not what it will be, maybe even a bit awkward, but its still super cool to see. Glad this was opened. 2005, man.

  • Highway to the D'Anger(ville) Zone (L'Apicio): Noticeably darker, richer color than the other Angervilles in this flight. Perfecly ripe nose of red cherries and dark berries. Incredibly dense and concentrated but still elegant and streamlined, there is a ton of structured tannin here but the tannins are ripe and refined, with a touch of stoniness on the back end. This is awesome with food, which cuts the structure and allows the fruit to shine through. Amazingly long finish. Surprisingly drinkable now with food, but this is so concentrated and structured that it will easily last decades. Magnificent.
