Intense and wonderful. Lots of eucalyptus on the nose, a cold, dark fragrant which entices and allures. Palate follows up with dark ripe fruit and lots of complexity. Delicious.

Needed an hour of air to shine. Dark fruited and complex, beautiful right now.

Intense, powerful, partially developed dark fruit dominates this wine. Aged perfectly. A wonder of a wine right now, but will surely last some more years in the cellar.

Intense and complex. Utterly fabulous. Razor sharp and with tons of weight.

Intense and delicious. Citrusy mouthfeel, sea salt, caramel, cream, yoghurt. Splendid. Got even better after 12 hours in decanter.

Lovely as always. A bit on the tart side today, with lots of lemons. But still mouthwateringly beautiful.

Wonderful nose, partially developed with hints of petroleum and fresh summer meadow. Honey and sweet candied lechee fruit. Lovely.

Aged well, but will still benefit from additional cellaring. Classic north-Rhone nose with ground white pepper, blood, hanged meat and bell peppers.

Impressive and delightful. Lots of powerful fruit, hints of aging with darker colors, ripe apples and well baked brioche.

Very «Chateauneuf-de-Pape»-esque wine with hints of sweetness intertwined with the opulent body full of partially developed fruit. Really good.

Delightful and classic chardonnay from a colder climate. Fresh cut green grass, medium intensity and good body. Nicely balanced acidity.

Deep crystal clear red color. Smells like freshly picked strawberries in a summer meadow, with gentle floral notes layered beneath the berries. Wild champignon mushrooms grow in the wet soil near the edge of the forest, besides some wild herbs. This all comes together in a seamless and enjoyable olfactorial impression. Hints of dried meat, liquorice and beef stock linger in the background like the distant whiff from a cooking stove in a home nearby.

The taste is more like a mixture of emotions and senses. Delightful warm calmness and serenity flush through your being as you take in the full experience. Complexity and diverseness coupled with linear clearness of fruit.

Bliss in a bottle.

Feels too young and a bit disjointed because of that. Partially developed fruit crashes a bit with the tannins and the fruit feels in a vacuum between aged and resolved, and young and fresh. Still a wonderful wine. But wait 7-10 years.

From magnum. Intense and balanced. Fresh fruited, concentrated and burgundian in style. Resembles a cross between a buttery Meursault and a citrus driven Puligny. Very good.

One of the finest bottles og champagne I have ever tasted. Golden and fruit driven. Impeccable balance and splendid minerality.

Rich and with a marked tannic bite. This is both the vintage and the appellation talking. Lots of fruit on the palate. A good Burgundy, though a bit on the rustic side.

Pear cider nose. Weak and watery palate. Nothing special.

Strange and backward pinot. More like a floral and lightweighted wine, far from burgundian in style.

Very good. Quite developed and with some funk, this must be a low-sulphur producer. Intense and interesting. Not sure I could have recognized the grape variety in a blind tasting, it’s a bit far off from your classic chardonnay.

In a perfect spot right now. Partially developed fruit, some residual tannins, well integrated in the wine. Long and powerful finish.

Splendid bottle. Intense concentration and impeccable mouthfeel. Big, balanced and bold. Still tannins present, soft and integrated ones.
Plenty of deep dark fruit left to complete the experience.

Rustic mouthfeel with a good tannic bite but paired with lots of floral notes and intense fruit. Really a good pairing with iberico ham and hazelnuts from Piemonte.

Mostly same note as last time I drank this wine, but better. Has a rustic quality to it, with a decent amount of nicely integrated tannins, plenty of partially developed fruit and lots of flavour. Lovely pairing with whole roasted chicken and ratatouille.
