I guess I still have my pink glasses on. Ch. Coufran 1981 was the first "expensive" wine I bought back in the day as a poor grad student. It's very dry ion the palate but the fruit is generous and it was nice to meet an old friend again :o)

Decanted 3 hours. Still very dark blue red colour. Complex velvety layered smell, dark plums, chocolate, herbs, meats. Taste is full bodied, smooth, seductive, plums, chocolate, spices. Long delicious after taste. The rest of the meal was a total mess. Thank god for this wine!

Complex nose, barnyard, leather, coffee, cassis. Savoury fruit, great acidity, well integrated tannins, medium bodied. Very long after taste.

Emerging complexity, cassis, cigar box, leather, coffee, some earthiness, opens up more as time passes by. Still lots of tannins, fruit to balance, cassis, nice acidity, lingering aftertaste. Feels like it has a lot more to give. Paired well will veal tender loin, honey mustard mushroom sauce and grilled tomatoes.

Spicy complex nose with black pepper and licorice, blackberries, a joy to sniff. "Reminds me of a Crozes-Hermitage" my friend said - I agreed. The taste is smooth, some tannins but not too much, blackberries, meats, with a nice finish, but it does not quite match the smell.

Decanted for 2 hours. Rich fruity, dark berries, cassis, cedar, bell peppers, parsnips, coffee, somewhat complex. Vigorous with velvety tannins, fruit extract of cassis, parsnips, bouillon. Lots of acidity and a long glowing after taste. It will probably keep for a few years but I am not sure it will really benefit from it. It made my weekend.

Decanted before starting dinner, first sniff suggested that there was no one home. Somewhat disappointed I made our dinner while thinking about a back-up. 90 minutes later this had all changed and I was greeted with complexity, coffee, cassis, leather, cigar box, pork rinds and a few other things that escapes my memory. The taste still had lots of tannins, good fruitiness and a long spicy finish leaving my mouth tingling. Great with striploin and scalloped potatoes. Like il_diavolo I wish I hade some more bottles.

Very dark, blue red colour, dense. Lots of dark berries, chocolate, coffee and candied orange peel(!) on the nose. Rich flavour, lots of fruit and tannins, spicy, chocolate. Long glowing finish.

Drank with filet of lamb with roasted garlic and rosemary, red wine sauce and a side sallad. Worked very well together. The wine was very good but nearly as complex as the 2005 Antonin Guyon Chevrey-Chambertin La Justice that we had with the same meal. However, at half the price of La Justice, the Yering Station is quite the bargain.

Drank with filet of lamb with roasted garlic and rosemary, red wine sauce and a side sallad. A perfect combination. Bottle lasted three days and developed over time. I can only concur with Finare Vinare. We also had the 2004 Yering Station Pinot Noir, a very good wine but not nearly as complex and elegant as La Justice.

Cassis and leather, not knowing I would have guessed bordeaux after poking my nose into the glass.

Need lots of air to really show it self. Decanted for an our and a half but it continued to improve in the glass as the night went on.
