  • tart dark fruit (sour plum), powerful, rich, i quite liked this

    Do you find this review helpful? Yes - No / Comment

  • Quite a few things surprised me about this wine:
    - It was somewhat approachable (although still dense and compact - needs time)
    - Very, very muscular dark fruit. Kind of like the power of Pommard but with the flavor profile of Volnay
    - Damn, it was good. Need to seek out more of these

    Ist aus meinem kühlen Klimaschrank noch ein absolutes Baby.
    Mit fraglos gewaltigem Potential.
    Sattes dunkles Rubinrot
    Dunkler Fruchtmix,Brombeeren,Cassis,Schwarzkirschig,Waldboden,sehr aetherisch-minzig,zwischendurch floral,auch Leder und Tabaktöne.
    Voller Körper,tiefer-dunkler See,eher noch prägend,fleischig,aufgerauht seidig,viel Kraft,intensiv,passende strukturgebende Säure,taucht auch zwischendurch eher ab.
    2.Tag würziger,sehr dunkle Frucht,trüffelig,sehr erdig,prägender,Lakritze,Oliven.
    Langer leicht ölig-dunkelfruchtiger würziger Abgang.
    Massig Substanz und auch Potential vorhanden,warscheinlich sollte man noch 10 Jahre zuwarten mit dem nächsten Versuch,aber habe den Verdacht das der Wein auch dann noch sehr jugendlich ist.
    Ob ich die Magnum irgendwann nach den Normalflaschen mit der für mich idealen Trinkreife öffnen "kann",ist warscheinlich fraglich.
    Mit zuviel Luft taucht er momentan eher ab.

  • Nice earthiness, cherry, stewed fruit and some spice on the nose initially ... though the spice faded. Robust and chewy but over time nice lightness and effervescence on the pallate. Good acidity and nice balance. Really enjoyable and will improve. Drank vs an 08 Panther Creek Shea from Oregon and it blew it away.

  • Deep, dark, surly and penetrating. There are some meaty notes coupled with a shot of espresso from the oak. The fruit is all dark cherry and it has a seriously earthy base. It has phenomenal structure and is not to be approached at this early juncture as it is probably a decade or two away from any real pleasure.

    (Comtes Lafon Volnay Santenots-du Milieu) Medium-plus colour. Dark aromatics that are a little wilder-fruited than the Champans and again with a higher-toned floral background. Mineral concentration - and plenty of it! Lots of grainy tannin and a river of length. Very impressive wine.
