Small glass, brief note. So good already, with upside. Good if ripe red fruit, then a burst of energy leading to a long, long finish.

1985 Maison Leroy Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru La Richemone France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru
90 points
Small glass, brief note. Mature red fruit with lots of earth. Similar flavors that don’t quite show 1985 ripeness and density, but still very good.
Red
2013 Domaine Dujac Clos St. Denis France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Clos St. Denis Grand Cru
Small glass, brief note. Lots of backward red fruit with background spice hints. Lots here, but very backward. Needs time, but very good potential.

Red
2005 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Echezeaux France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Echezeaux Grand Cru
92 points
Small glass, brief note. Lots of red and black cherry with savory Asian five spice. Just so brooding today, it is teasing us with its 2025- very good (92-93 point?) potential.

Broad array of red fruit. Medium/ good weight and very good textures and balance, with an expanding finish. Very good now.

Small glass, brief note. Popped and poured. Already complex black and red cherry with so much concentration. Slightly backward, yet so elegant.

1996 Domaine Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet France, Burgundy, Côte de Beaune, Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru
Small glass, brief note. Open 5 hours before I tasted. Very dense, rich and butterscotchy with fresh and dried stone fruit. Lots of power. 93 points now, but I expect it might have been even better a few hours back.

2012 Domaine Robert Arnoux / Arnoux-Lachaux Vosne-Romanée France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Vosne-Romanée
88 points
Small glass, brief note. Black fruited than typical for Vosne with good richness and density for Villages. Slightly spicy with some roasted meat. Good+ balance and length for its level.

Small glass, brief note. Black fruit, maturing gracefully but still behind rather firm tannins. Better to cellar further.
