  • Burgundy dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): Pop and pour, the fruit seems a bit too ripe and no stem note. With air, this is become incredible delicious. Beautiful opulent nose displaying sweet red and black fruits, now noticeable stem which as nice complexity, sap, caramel, Vosne spice and strong presence of mineral. Excellent concentration, opulent sweet blackberry driven palate impression, bright acidity, nicely integrated tannins and seamless lovely finish. Displaying perfect balance and harmony. Very youthful but perfectly enjoyable. This improved with air where the 02 didn’t.

  • Classy Burg without a hair out of place. The aroma and flavour profile is cherry personified, pulp and stone. It is cool, rocky and detailed. There are ethereal floral notes and the palate is plush velvet. It fans out off the finish and is such a delicious drink now yet with plenty still in the tank.

  • Liked this a lot, but it didn't show the sheer breed or depth of either the Rousseau or de Vogüé that preceded it. It's still incredibly primary, with an intense stemmy scent at first that eases with air into something more spicy and floral, with a core of very fresh, sappy red fruited flavours on the palate. There's a remarkable vibrancy and liveliness on the palate, with the tannins very fine grained and most of the structure here coming from the bright acidity. Lovely wine.

  • Dinner with Friends (Jen and Phil's - Chicago IL): Popped and poured. Ripe red fruit with sweet baking spice. Ripe fruit on both nose and palate. A bit compact right now, but i don't think this will ever be very nuanced. This would have benefited from several hours of air and/or a few more years in the cellar.

  • Nose - floral/rose, per Doug baby powder. Gran marnier, per dale candied apple with cinnamon
    Mouth - very nice, strawberry/raspberry, rose, with hints of spice (orange peel) and long dry tannins. The waiter appreciated minerality. A wine of concentration but ultimately finesse. Nice.

    (DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault Blochet) Let the 2006 DRC Vosne Romanee Cuvee Duvault Blochet begin. Purity did, indeed, jump out first. Cinnamon and spice were next, followed by taut black cherry, forest floor and a healthy whiff of healthy wood, cedar and mahogany to be exact. A hint of green olives rounded out the nose. The palate was round with gamy flavors, clean and silky overall. Flavors of stem, cinnamon, earth went with the cherry and rose. In retrospect, the Vosne Romanee was light, but light on its feet and dancing in the mouth.
