Strange showing here. Very ripe blackberry fruit with some medicinal qualities. Not characteristic of traditional Barolo in my book. Like high acidity Amarone? Maybe this is bottle variation? Had with the Cannubi which was much more typical. I’ll wait a few years to try the next bottle.

Showing some development in last two years. Still delicious. Suave satiny texture. Extremely elegant with deceptive depth. Red fruits, cranberry, cherry pit, potpourri spice, sous bois. Very very long finish relative to its weight. Day two it had less fruit and energy than day one.

Had this blind with the range. Middle of the pack with firm minerality, sea salt. Improved over time.

Similar to my last bottle a couple years ago but more development. Potent nose of mushroom, wet earth, iodine. Rustic. Nice earthy stewed fruit on the palate.

    9/6/16, 6:16 PM - Good question - I was attempting to describe the development and funk from aging that this wine is definitely starting to show. Its development is on the rustic side, as opposed to becoming silky. Hope that clarifies!

  • Sixchips600 commented:

    9/6/16, 7:56 PM - Yes I think you are thinking about it correctly in this case. This is showing more maturity than my other 05s. But I also don't think you need to rush... 05s could be good forever. Too bad it's a one way street!

Consistent with other notes this showed obvious oak and some open fruit. Both are delicious in their own right but not integrated so will revisit in a couple years. Drank over 4 hours and did not come together by end of the night to warrant a higher rating, but I feel there is nice potential here.

    7/19/15, 8:23 AM - Good question. I experienced the same with his 2010 Vosne Romanee, but not with older vintages...07/09. So hopefully with integrate in a couple years. I have more experience with his VR wines than CM...have you tried many?

Nice nose of raisins, soft oak, wet earth, stones, and medicine. Palate is dry with some bitterness and a nice finish. Drinking well with a good mix of fruit and secondary.
  • Sixchips600 commented:

    2/11/15, 7:11 PM - Probably not...I think there is more downside than upside in further aging.

Comparing to Bourgogne rouge, which I love...this had similar floral, mineral, mushroom, earthy notes, but was more powerful, complex and not as satiny as a good bourgogne. Still wonderful texture. Great alternative for a richer meal.

Having read the other notes now...I will add that this kept getting better with air. Will try for 2 hour decant next time.
  • Sixchips600 commented:

    8/8/14, 5:35 AM - Good question. In some ways I think of piedmont as the burgundy of Italy....traditional style, terroir matters, wines with floral / mineral qualities more than fruit. I drink Bourgogne rouge as everyday and a big fan. I bought this wine as an experiment with Langhe rosso to see if it fills the same everyday purpose as the Bourgogne rouge.

Fully mature now and in a good place. Deep yellow with aromas of burnt orange and kept together but a focused minerality. Drink now.
  • Sixchips600 commented:

    6/23/13, 4:06 PM - Yes pretty cool. FYI, we only had half the bottle yesterday. Today it was just as good if not better. Good sign for my other 11 bottles! But still think I should drink them soon.
