Modern, perfumed, dense and quite easy to like. Typical Dujac I would say, and more Dujac than Malconsorts.

A good wine, a bit meaty and so, but not on the level of the 3 x La.
Starting to come around. Give this 2-3 more years to develop more syrah charachteristics. To me this could have been a good Bordeaux, at this stage.

My fourth Bizot.
The vosne village is probably the best village I have had. The Echexaux was very good and this is also quite alright.
Fuller, dense, perfumed and slightly sweet. A bit okay and tannic.
The sommelier said the 2015 had some Rhone charachteristics and I can see what he means.
Quite different from the wines from Vosne.
Served by the glass on a winebar in Stockholm. 180 euro for the whole bottle. The pricetag on the international market is a joke.

This needed an hour in the glass to really show its elegance and lightness. 92-93 pts.

Initially quite a lot of oak, and quite fat and a bit sweet, but after 1 hour so this turns lighter and rather elegant.

Hm. I have had 2006, 2007, 2010, 2011 and now 2008 of this wine.
The 2008 stands out for the high level of acid. It is probably still very young. Wait 3-5 years.
The least attractive vintage this far. Pnp.

At the moment, the 2006 vintage is easier to drink than the 2004. Good but not very exciting. Tannic.

A second time with this wine. I opened it the night before and then double decanted the next morning, and then we drank this wine 10 hours later.
92 pts for now, but should reach at least 93. Deep, blue, fruit. Very classical of course and very good.

The wine was good, but still needed time.

I have recently had the 2004 Sori Tildin and Costa Russi, but they were in a transition phase to reaching maturity.
This is younger, fresher and better and should probably end up being the best wine of the three.
Close to 96.
But at the end I seem to prefer Gajas more basic Sperss and Barbaresco.

Never lets you down and always on a high level. The latest batch according to the restaurant, yet quite developed.

My second time with the 2013.
This is an excellent wine on the same level as a the best vintages of a Bordeaux 1:er cru.
But this needs quite a lot of time. Decanted at 19.00 and our dinner lasted until 24.00, but this was still quite tannic.
Decant at least 10 hours in advance.

Opened our bottle at 19.00 and finished our dinner at 24.00 and this wine kept developing the whole time.
Light, everything in place and very good, but maybe missing that "wow-feeling".

This is drinkable but you should wait 3-5 years for a smoother and more integrated wine.
Seems to be a vintage that does not require a lot of cellartime.

Really typical chambolle musigny. Quality has improved so dramatically that even a village tastes very good.
Highly recommendable if you want to try this district.

This will be good and should surely add 1-3 points. But it needs 5-10 more years.

Not a lot of complexity, but surprisingly fresh and almost like apple pie. The bubbles are still there but disappears almost instantly.

Scored on potential (96-97). This has all the ingredients to be a great barolo in 5-10 years, but is quite drinkable already today.
My third Sperss, previously 2006 and 2011.

On the fuller side. Maybe ripe, but the oak makes this rather clumpsy. Wait 2-3 years and hope for the better. My second time with the 2012.

In a transition phase. Give this 5 more years to let the oak settle, etc. A lot less fruit than previous times and the freshness is not there anymore.

Reaching maturity, thus less crispiness and less fruit.

A second time with the 2005 (first time was in 2014).
This has evolved quite a lot and in 5 years or so this should be fine and score a couple of more points.
The oak is still evident, but the deep fruit is starting to show, and I get the impression the concentration is good, however not supberb.
Was the 2003 better? My score for the 2003 was signicantly higher and I'm not so sure that the 2005 will reach 95.

A good bourgogne, rather Cathiard in style, but not as good as their wines from Vosne. And no - do not pay the premium.

My third time with this vintage and the the first sips show wonderful Paullac fruit (95 pts), but then this wine turns a bit dark and raw. Will probably be very fine in 5 years or so.

Tasting: My third vintage of Lafite (1995, 2010, 2015) and this was the best of the three. The 2010 was probably too young.
Very elegant and quite light.

I'm not very experienced with Rhone and syrah, but this wine, from one of the most hailed producers did not impress. A bit sweat, actually almost cooked and quite a lot of heat (alcohol).
Very much a syrah, but not close to the quality of the La, La, La trio.
Give this 1 hr in the decanter.

A second time with the 2010.
Slightly better than the first time and just as good as the 2006 RSV, I had last week. Slightly lush, great nose and wonderful raspberries.
The 2011 was however slightly better.

Very good but not quite up to the 2007, which was even lighter and more lush.
Beware, I scored Cathiard's 2006 Orveaux and Suchots 96 pts as well, so it is not necessary to pay premium to get the same quality.

Sure, a very good burgundy, but a Richebourg and from 2009?
The upside is that we found this on a restaurant list at a bargain price (280 usd), but to truly enjoy this I think you need to wait maybe 5 years or so. Improved with air, and hopefully this will turn out great and just not very good.
My third Richebourg from this producer (2007, 2009 and 2012). 2012 was the best to date (an excellent Richebourg).

I quite liked this.
Somewhere inbetween youth and adolescence, still with a healthy acid but also quite tasty. 92-93 pts.
Drank from a burgundy cup, which I would recommend.

DRK III puts it well:
Dark fruit, massively powerful and concentrated. This probably needs Another 5-10 years, and should turn out well, but at the moment it is a bit difficult to appreciate.
