Community Tasting Note

  • liber Likes this wine: 95 points

    July 13, 2019 - Last of 6, decanted an hour, perfect cork and level, couple of steps up on bottle last noted here in 15, now approaching maturity and more complex than hitherto, red fruit driven with attractive sour raspberry component, Rousseau class shines through and sheer persistence of flavours impresses, even though for me (not some others) this was pipped by the Vogue Amoureuses 99. VF (18.5)……...the so called pundits (eg Jancis Robinson) pronounced this to be a weak vintage and encouraged early drinking, truly terrible advice for wines at this level and more generally for Cotes de Nuits!

Best, Liber
