My cousin shared a bottle which I bought 10 years ago from Kermit Lynch. Brownish red in color. Not perfect storing condition but the wine held very well. Sweet jammy fruit, not game at all, and surprisingly it tasted very much similar to a Pinot Noir. I would never imagine an aged Morgon would taste so well. Drank over 2 hours and there's enough acidity that it would hold for few more years.

Incredible nose with sense of deep volume. Very expressive. Still a very big wine. Open up after 1.5 hours. It seems it's in the drinking windows as not much primary left. Smooth. Tabacacco, cassis with good balance of acidity. The bottle is in perfect shape since release and the only negative is a bit too much vanilla with a certain flatness at the finish; maybe it will be better in few years.

Beautiful nose. Can't get enough of it over the course of 2.5 hours. There are still quite a bit of tannin with power and good concentration. Maybe a bit too much wet wood and red fruit is kind of got covered. Hard to tell if there be more fruit in future but plenty of tannins left. Very good drink, although I prefer the fruit of the 1988 Gros Frère et Sœur Richebourg a bit better (which I had 4 years ago).

I was very worried 1993 is not ready. Surprisingly welcoming experience. Extraordinary bouquet with secondary aromas reviewing. Wide in the mouth w/ lots of depth. Texture is super fine. Black fruit with decent sweet fruit. Long finish. Delicious. I can drink this the whole bottle myself but it's so much reward-able to share with friends from high-school.

Magnum bottle. Decanted for 90min before consumption. There was a floral dimension to the aromas. Game, anima. Complex and yet structure. Supple and sweet. Medium finish. Drank over the course of 2 hours. Towards the end, showing higher alcohol. Maybe another 2-4 years?

This is very similar to the 2003 Carlson Collection Private Reserve The Napa Valley Reserve I had a year ago on my bday. Drank over 4 hours. Lot of fruit, cassis, plum, black currant,.... Well balanced although a complex wine. Delicious. Why wait.

It's probably one of my best Beaune Rouge I've had. It's the last of my six 2003 bottles and the best of the six and it just gets better and better. It's very seductive and it's got the grand cru class and definitely outsources some of the bourgogne grand cru. Surprisingly it's got quite a bit of dark richness fruits with its excellent femininity although the 2nd level of after taste is a bit thin(in a good way!). I can enjoy this vintage over and over again and it may be a problem to find the 2003s again. This is a serious wine making wine here with tons of love and hard to beat this vintage. Will be interesting to see how the 2005 and 2009 turn out.

It's very lovely, seductive and tasty. Day two is a much better wine. I enjoy the '06 much more than than the '05 today. Buy more? Yes!

An hour after opening, smoke and heat still dominate. It's thick and gets hidden complexity but it's never really opening up. I think it will take another 5-10 years min. to reveal its beauty. Today I would enjoy the 2006 much than the 2005's. A definite 93-94 potential.

Wow, what a magnificent Chablis! Sweet floral notes and yet not overly perfumed. Welcoming acidity with in depth mineral. Overall a very well balanced wine with excellent fine fitness. Pleasantly enjoying.

Lovely. Concentrated and much more fruit than the 87'. Lucky have another bottle left to enjoy in few years.

This Les Chevalieres tastes almost better than a Premier Cru without the edge. Nutmeg and honey w/ oily medium weight finish is just awesome. Why wait any longer?

Round and creamy, short on acidity and complexity. Could have been a 87-88 white, but way too much oak. Same notes on 4th bottles, no matter an hour after, 3 hour later, or day after. Way too oaky.

Lovely Bourgonge bouquet and lingering flavours on the palate. 2nd aroma resembles terror from Beaune. It's not a complex wine, and it's still very enjoyable with a slight sweetness at the finish. Amazing bottle from village and marvelous vintage, and it's still got life (lucky to get a good-fill bottle). Great importer from Scheieffelin & Co. New York.

Mature bouquet. Red fruit. Mid-plate is a bit lost after 2 hours, not reflecting the vintage. DNA issue???

Superb! What a wonderful stupendous floral, I can just sniff this forever and forever. Harmonious power without weight, feminine, perfect acid balance, satisfied and substantial fruit, can I say jammy?!! Enjoy over the course of 2 hours after 2 hour decanting. I can image I can go wild if it's a magnum.

A beautiful Volnay with fragrant bouquet, elegant finesse and tremendous balance. It's near peak and probably stay there for few years. Why wait?

Bought it last year 2008 through auction. A Sherry Lehmann Selection. I am glad I bought two. I was skeptical how it would turn out after 56 years and many destinations. I waited one year to ensure the bottle is at peace and harmonized before opening. The cork was pulled out surprisingly in one single solid piece. Should I pour, should I pour, or should I wait (never decant an old Burgundy)..... What the hell. The glass filled with full of wonderful berries immediately. You know it's going to be good. Should I sip, should I sip and later find out disappointment as I had for many old vintages (part of the fun with Burgundy)? It's opened, and there's no going back. That nose is so irresistent. Let me smell more, let me smell more, and more..... It's so nice and dense without drinking it as what a good Burgundy should be. I wish there's a male perfume made just like that. Ok, enough with my ugly own physical nose. Time to taste. What can I say? Perfect storage, perfect selection by Dr. Barolet. It's definitely worth the $$$$. Wow, it's still tannic. Life? Yes. Fruit? Yes. Cote de Nuits? Yes. Acidity? Yes, not too much left. Any more improvement? Doubt it, but I think it will stay for few more years if it's stored in the ideal condition. Maybe have past its peak; I could image how good it could be. It's still very very very good. After 45 minutes, it still gets better. A village? Under statement. It's definitely a distant comparison with 62' DRC Romanee Conti, but it's holding well and pleasant in 2009.
