‘11 Collier Ripaille alongside ‘11 and ‘14 Guiberteau Arboises. The Collier was my least favorite of the bunch; decent fruit, but marred by a bit too much Brett for my preference. ‘11 Guiberteau was in the middle, though showing a bit underripe with more green pyrazine notes than I enjoy. ‘14 Guiberteau did really well, having put on some weight over the past few years while demonstrating a great balance between cab franc character and a bit of polish.

Young, tight, and laser focused. High acid with a bit of flinty reduction. Very good.

Bright and juicy in a somewhat natty / Allemand-esque vein. Nice wine.

Early pull in the name of science. Day one was polished, grapey, and simple; day two was substantially improved with more complexity and actual cab franc character. Good at the price point, but needs time.

Three years since my last bottle; this one was pristine relative to the last one which was showing a bit mature. Typical Roulot profile, with maybe a bit more flinty reduction than usual. Delicious, though certainly a stylistic preference.

'55/'61/'67 plus '61 Fontanafreda poured single blind. The stylistic consistency of the Mascarellos was amazing, from the pale, nearly translucent color down the the way the sediment was formed in large sheets. All of the wines showed propersly and for the most part were delicious. The '67 was the least impressive and clearly on the backside of maturity. Not madeirized, but it had a crystalline candied sweetness, almost like a tawny port. Interesting, but not up to the standard of the others, which were all impressive in their own way. The '61 drank the biggest and youngest (in a relative sense), but still ephemeral and elegant. The '55 was consistent with prior bottles; elegant, complex, and very alive for a 60+ year old wine. The Fontanafreda split the difference between the two, and was a massive over-performer. Three fantastic wines that were a treat to drink.

Big and powerful, but with a good mineral backbone to keep things fresh on the palate. Drinks very young and should age for a long time.

Relatively crisp and clean, though still recognizable as Jura Chardonnay. Fine, but uninspiring.

Rich, round, and a pronounced sense of sweetness. I would be shocked if this did not have some actual residual sugar. Pretty good in a unique style. We’ll see how it ages.

Four years since my last bottle. Fine, but rather polished and uninteresting and lacking in cab franc character.

In a great spot right now. Pure candied cherries on the nose and palate. A bit on the ripe side, but utterly delicious.

Moderately natty with a touch of spritz. Drinks someplace between a ripe-ish burg and a lean cab franc. Pretty good.

5 years since my last bottle, and this one showed as good as all of the prior ones consistently have. Exactly what I want in mature grand cru red burgundy. None of the vintage over-ripeness or hard edges, just a beautifully mature, elegant and complex wine. Bummed to be down to my last few.

Back on track vs my last bottle. This one was pristine; nearly transparent. Focused, vibrant, and in a good drinking window. Nice wine and nice showing.

Dark, structured, austere, and not so giving. Obviously young and in need of age, but right now not so enjoyable, and an open question to me where this will go and how long it will take.

5+ years since my last bottle, which I seem to have liked quite a bit. This was equally impressive, though obviously further down the maturity curve. A nicely made wine in a generally classical style. Glad to have a few more to drink over the next few years.

Rather underwhelming. Varietally correct flavor profile with a heavy dose of pepper, but overall thin and not so interesting. One could argue for the use of the word elegant in place of thin, but that just wasn't the impression it left. A pass for me at the price point.

Pours a medium yellow color, which was initially, though unnecessarily concerning. Yes, it is mature, and maybe more than one would want at this age, but it is incredibly complex, vibrant, and simply delicious. Glad to have more, though will probably drink them over the next ~5 years or so.

Threw this double-blind in a flight of natty red burgs. A nice wine that blended in well. Light bodied, a bit rustic, but clean. Happy to have some more.

Early stage premox. Very disappointing.

Pretty consistent with my prior bottles, and though while still light bodied and fruit forward, this has developed some more interest and become less overtly grapey over the past several years.

Young, big, and still very primary. Doesn’t have the complexity or mineral backbone of some of the higher end bottlings (in less ripe years). We’ll see how this settles in with some age.

Crisp, pure, and laser focused classically styled BdB. Nice wine if you like the style. Approachable now, but still very young.

Pours mid-yellow in color and the palate and mouthfeel follows through with a surprisingly oily and rich profile. If poured blind, I would have guessed Jura. Good, though not exactly a classic BB. Feels like should drink sooner rather than later.

A bit disconnected between the nose and the palate, with the former promising promising sweet mature Bordeaux fruit, but the latter coming off as a bit dry and dusty. Ok, but not great.

Less fresh and more oxidative than I remember, but still interesting and enjoyable. Will be curious to track the variability in these.

What a difference a few years makes. The seating acidity has resided, and this has fleshed out nicely. A rather round and each mouthfeel, though still fresh and vibrant. Really nice, and a steal at the original price.

Light bodied and mineral driven, though with an intriguing depth of flavor. Vibrant and refreshing to drink in a way not dis-similar to a top cru Beaujolais, though of course with a different flavor profile. Nice wine.

Continues to be a knock your socks off type of wine. As have noted in the past, this is not so similar to the newer house style, and would easily be confused with Ramonet blind. Starting to show a bit more age appropriate maturity compared to my last bottle and maybe could use a bit more acidic lift ala ‘07, but those are really just nitpicking a truly great wine.

Fantastic once again. A bit younger and bigger than my prior bottle from two years ago, but still an elegant, complex, and flat out delicious wine. In its prime drinking with apparently little risk of fading soon. Down to my last few, I’ll be sad when they are gone.

Pretty good, but a bit flabby and lacking the focus and vibrancy that I would expect from a good ‘17. Fine for the original price to drink over the near term.

Six years since my last bottle. Unfortunately, very slightly corked; also unfortunately, no more left. Despite being not quite correct, it was still possible to get a sense of a very high quality burgundy worthy of its grand cru status. I wish I had more…

Surprising to see that has been seven years since last had this. Under Diam, and this was clean and appropriately mature. A decent Chablis for its level.

Delicious. Feels a bit darker fruited and more complex with spice and grilled meats compared to my last bottle from two years ago. A great example of what Allemand should be.

2004 base that I believe was disgorged in 2007. A straightforward aged BdB; no fireworks, but perfectly reasonable for the price.

In a blind lineup with '11 Charmes and Boucheres. Two years since my last bottle, this was similar to that one; i.e. crystalline and taut, with maybe a bit more complexity resulting from its age. A delicious bottle and a strong showing amongst its esteemed brethren.

Pulled to drink alongside a '14 Ramonet Ruchottes, that while delicious was showing a bit more roundness and buttered popcorn notes than I would expect from that wine and vintage. The Lamy performed as expected; young, vibrant, and focused. Consistent with my bottle from February. Delicious and a strong overperformer.

Drank side-by-side with the '08. My feeling is that this bottle may have been very slightly corked, but I was alone in that opinion. Despite potentially being less than perfect, the familial resemblance between these two was striking. Delicate, subtle, and complex, and not showing any of the (over) extraction or ripeness that characterizes the newer vintages of this producer. Very nice.

Threw this into a blind lineup, including several '11 Roulots (Charmes, Boucheres, M-C). Performed in the top tier with most people assuming this was one of the Roulots. Stylistically very similar with hints of flinty reduction, vibrant acidity, and great tension between fruit and minerality. Delicious.

Five years since my last bottle; this has started to come around pretty nicely. Delicate, semi-polished, but still showing a bit of cab franc edginess. Plenty of live, and probably some upside. Pretty good, but not exceptional.
