A very nicely balanced wine. It is nicely into the secondary phase and we had some light bits of forest floor followed by a long Bing cherry finish. It sat in our glasses and opened up sigificantly during the hour. Beautiful wine and for me, in the zone now!
Another very intriguing 07. I own 3 of these so it was nice to check in. I'll wait at least a year to try one of mine if not 3. Like many 07s these are drinking more like they're already 15yrs old but showing no sings of decline.
A French Night at La Belle Vie with a lot of Burgs and Some Others (La Belle Vie, Mpls): Light medium red color. PNP, Drank 1 glass over over an hour. Wow, another stellar performance. Great nose, perfumed with great aromatics, spiced and earthy, slightly sweet red fruits. This is just so pretty on the palate, wonderful powdery tannins that follow the pretty red fruits. There's a lot of pizzazz going on here with an elegance that just can't be denied. Pretty and perfectly integrated. So tasty...93+pts.
This is very, very different from the way it was on release but it is still very impressive. Now it has a lot of rich, very fleshy dark fruit that seems to have blossomed from nowhere. This isn't showing much stem character this time mainly because the fruit is so plush and saturating. It has the expected brown-spice aromatics of the site too. Of the four wines tonight, this was the most wide open and the easiest to drink, mostly because it's pretty soft and edgeless and has all that glossy fruit, but for exactly the same reasons it did seem a bit flabby in comparison to the Montille.
Popped and slow oxed for 10 hours before dinner. I didn't taste on opening as I was at the office but the wine was ready to go with the air it received. Packed with spice and stem character. Full and velvety in the mouth. Medium concentration and satisfying. I'm not in a rush to drink my remaining bottles but this is not a wine for the ages. Still, a gorgeous effort for the vintage.

The Dujac offer last week was so popular, I found it prudent to continue...
The 2007 Malconsorts is lovely in a myriad of ways – it has nothing excess or overwrought and the mélange of spices that emanate from its core are worth the experience alone. The aromatics and palate impression are stellar with an adult sense of itself that never has to scream to wake up the neighborhood. A limpid extrovert (if that yin-yang makes any sense?), this is what red Burgundy is all about:
