  • Relaxing Saturday Lunch @ Capital Restaurant (Capital Restaurant, New Bridge Road, Singapore): A bit of a coincidental overlap here - the trio of Burgundies that we had (a pair of Chambolle 1er Crus and this Gevrey) contained two wines from the 2000 vintage. Unlike the very advanced 2000 Barthod 1er Cru Charmes though, this seemed really backwards. I thought it needed some 7-8 years more in the bottle at least. The nose was a bit tight, showing drifts of mineral and ferrous metal and earth over black cherries and wild berries, with brighter shades of red fruit under underneath. There was just the slightest hint of dried flowers around the sides. The palate was still very structured, very masculine, with metallic mineral notes running through rather monochromatic tones of black cherries and blackberries laced with a touch of spice. Not bad, but I found this a bit too heavily extracted. There was a lot of depth and power wrapped up in its rather thick texture, Grand Cru scale I would say, and it was nicely balanced too, with a nice clear acidity running all the way into the finish. However, unlike the pair of wines that preceded it though, this seemed to lack a sense of terroir. Even if the former wines were on the masculine side for Chambolles, you could still tell that they were Burgundies. This was so thick and extracted in the mouth that a lot of us actually thought this was a Rhone. Maybe time will soften it and open up its rather surly depth somewhat. At the moment, it is a decent wine, but not quite up my alley.

  • Wine While Eating Well in Burgundy; 4/26/2010-4/30/2010 (Cote d'Or): Very nice black fruit with a touch too much new oak protruding at this stage, with fruit that is very powerful and starting to mature. Very good flavors, imperfect balance.

  • Served at an offline last night. Opened not decanted. Very light nose of flowery fruit; reticient light red berry fruit hiding in the background with up front forest and wood notes. Good.

  • Deep and dark, complex aromas of truffles, mushrooms and earth. Sappy, spicy fruits glide through the palate with a very long (60 seconds plus) finish. Still, the alcohol, fruit and oak don't quite come together. May improve in a few years, and will be an amazing blockbuster if it does. Please note the score factors in the price. This is an expensive bottle, and a clearly great wine.
