Drinking well now. A little muted on the nose, very fine, medium bodied, cherry and good length. Good tannic structure. Technically good, enjoyable and easy to drink (too much!) but lacks the aromatic wow factor and layers of flavour expected, by me at least, of a Grand Cru.
Showing reasonably well - open like most 06s have been for me recently. Good fruit, framed by oak that is present but not obtrusive, and reflects the 2007 vintage. In other words, good solid burg typicity with fruit and earthy elements, without being exceptional in terms of charm or length. Some tannin still needs to resolve, but this is approachable enough. 91-92
Sending Josh off to the 'burbs (l'Artusi, NYC): Ruby. The nose is quite oaky, but classic young Burgundy nonetheless; cherry, intense bubblegum, cherry pits, and stone dust; a little heat. OMG this wine is FABULOUS with beef carpaccio! Wow! Palate is pretty good now, a charming '06; mellow cherry, good length. A medium-term wine already drinking well.
Medium garnet colored. Very intense aroma full of red fruits, floral, soil, earth, mineral plus some notes of dark fruits & oak vanilla in the back, very complex & beautiful. Medium body & tannins, very refined structure and texture. You can almost feel the terroir, that's the beauty of Burgundy. Medium to long finish. Great wine! Pair with John Coltrane's My Favorite Things, lovely.

(Potel Nicolas Echézeaux) There is real depth on the nose - like the Gaudichots. More tannin providing extra texture, but there is a more open display of flavour over the palate. Showing much better than any of the Vosne Crus.
