1 cm in pristine condition and appears to be domain released. Wine opened for 15 minutes and consumed in 2+hrs. Fresh, bright and clean, with earthy red berry fruit aromas that merge into sweet and relatively elegant structure. Tasty especially at the end. If in good condition, it's likely last another 2-3 yrs or more. It's a fun Bourgogne to try.

1 cm. Wine opened 2 hrs and last 2 hrs. This bottle showed much better than the other one tried a few months ago. It might be because it was served less cooler than the prior bottle. Floral and berry to begin with and then transformed to some spice and earth. Good depth. Can last another 3-5 yrs or longer.

In Jeroboam. Decanted for 4 hrs and consumed in 3 hrs. Spicy aromas and still plenty of tannins. Rich round with chocolate and full-body fruits. Too young for now. Let's put aside 5-10 yrs for regular size and 10-15 yrs for larger format.

One bottle 2 cm and the other 3-3.5 cm. Bottle breath for 45 mins and last for 2 hrs. Matured, but rich and complex, with tea leaf, sous bois and mushroom. The 2 cm definitely 1-2 pts better than the other. Depending on conditions, can last another 2-3 yrs, but should consume now instead of waiting.
