Decanted 2 hours, this did not show as well as I expected, but was still good. I just hoped for a bit more expression, and just didn't get it. Plus, there was a mild roasted note that was a bit distracting. But overall a clean wine with the nice balance of the power of '99 with the elegance and minerals of Chambolle. Others liked this more than I did - I think I was just expecting more. B+/A-
Decanted 30 minutes. This is now entering a good drinking window for me. Still dark in color and youthful with energy and structure, but the fruit is starting to show. Elegant, minerals, but solid fruit and a finish that should improve a bit with another year or two. A-
At room temperature, and with 30 minutes to open, this showed well. Still young, but showing the minerals and elegance you would expect vs. the Gevrey served next. Nice as the first red of the evening, and seems to have plenty of life to it - and may improve. B+/A-
