Off list at Le Montrachet. Mixed opinions on this wine with a range of 90 - 92pts. I enjoyed it for its seductive nose of smokey, earthiness and red fruits. Less complex than expected for 2002, little - if any - evolution in the glass. Overall, on the night it was enjoyable.
Decanted it almost three hours before drinking. Forward fruit, good balance. Consistent palate throughout with a 20-30 sec. Finish. Overall enjoyed this bigger than expected wine-probably my ignorance of this producer.
Tastevin dinner. Drank over 3 hours. Maybe this was an off bottle. Very stinky nose of sweaty socks, barnyard funk and all the stuff than can be interesting but in this case it was just off-putting. Some sweet red fruit would appear on the palate but overall this was angular and dry.
A really big, dark bruiser of a Burg. It smells of camphor, liquorice and blood plum. It has good flesh and intensity of fruit in the mouth. There’s just a touch of savoury nuance sneaking in and the finish has good grip.
