Exceptional stuff here. Very earthy both aromatically and on the palate. Quite powerful. Not even the slightest hint of vintage taint. Still a bit on the young-ish side -- probably even better 3-5 years out.
Wanted to try this for a while, nice nose of Asian herbs, cherries, slightly herbal and hints of new oak, pretty decent palate which mirrors the nose, and the nose opened up considerably after 2 hours, not particularly powerful or long but not bad. Doesn't have the customary 04 vegetal nose.
Gevrey Chambertin Blind Tasting: Blind. Showed much more dark fruits than the other wines from the line up along ripe strawberry. Round, more body. The wine is ripe but somehow shows some green tannins. Got better with time but this will be interesting to see how it is going to evolve.

(Fourrier Griotte-Chambertin) Medium, medium-plus cherry red colour. Initially the nose is very tight with faint estery notes, slowly going deeper and a little spicy - eventually this becomes plusher, more red and with quite creamy sweet oak. The fruit is quite high-toned in the mouth, with well-covered tannin. There's a fantastic length on display - even longer than wine de Vogèé's 01 Musigny - there's also quite a lot of oak on display but it's not in the slightest 'untasty' and quite creamy.
