Community Tasting Note

  • honest bob wrote: 92 points

    September 17, 2013 - Jura, Puligny Montrachet and Champagne; 9/8/2013-9/20/2013: I note to my surprise that CT members have already been buying this: It was served to us today as a preview of a wine not yet commercially available. Much brighter, more forward and exciting than the 2005, with superb racy acidity and a robust but beautifully crafted mineral structure. And the oak wasn't as obvious. A great future in store. 92P(?)

    9/17/13, 10:17 PM - Thnx for the preview! I bought some the other day here in Sweden and on the back of the bottle there's a text indicating that this is being made available earlier in Sweden (if you look at the list of CT community holdings it seems most trackers who bought some are based in Sweden). I guess/hope the release date for a 2006 vintage in 2013 is more a choice of commercial strategy than a vinification issue, although for sure I plan to cellar these lovely bottles for quite a while before opening.
