Really great already although far too young but wanted to have the wine of this producer tasted. Benoit Moreau is the new kid on the block. Wine shows a great balance, good minerality and nice length. One to watch for the future.

Really good wine ! Belgium is improving fast in producing excellent wine. Probably climate change helps

Fantastic wine ! Very nice acidity and minerality. Tense, multi-layered. Can compete with GC. Can keep for +5 years.

I really like this wine. Lots of freshness and minerality. Nice length. Can age for a couple of years but already very enjoyable !

This bottle was absolutely fantastic ! It shows a lot of finesse and is ‘very pinot’. Elegant and intriguing in a very refined way. Una principezza that keeps on seducing. She comes along with a Louis Vuitton handbag and a bit too much perfume which prevents me from scoring it 98. Anyway I hope I will be able to get more Nuits St Georges La Richemone as these wines are marvellous !

Great development ! Wines of JM Boillot are very balanced and longtimers, even in white. This PM la truffiere is still very pleasing, keeps its tensity. Drank this last year and taught it was at the end but now again alive and kicking. Like the great Henri Jayer once said : ‘un vin dans une bouteille ça a plusieurs vies’. (A wine in a bottle has several lives)

Very good ! Think this is ready for at least 5 years more. Wood is still very present but also nice fruit and length.

Still very pleasant to drink. Color more intense, on the nose Meursault like flavours, butter, honey, lychee and taste is great with nice acidity. I thought this 2005 would be past peak but still very good.

Nice Rioja. Good balance and fraicheur. In integration phase. Still tannines present. At its peak in 3-5 years. Good finish. Looking forward to drink this in 2025. Still developing

This bottle was much better than the one I tasted a couple of weeks ago. Nice balance, not overly complex but also not easy. Very nice and long finish. Confidence in this wine is back !

Artificial, lacks complexity, no balance, hope this somehow recovers. 2 years ago this wine was quite promissing.

I drank 2 Taillepieds 1997 in the last years and didn’t really like it but this one was really good. Still nice balance, fruit, medium bodied, elegant

Very nice Barolo. Dark fruit, very nice balance. Full bodied. Tannines stil very present. I would have expected more complexity, more layers that can bring the magic and bring the sensation above the 95 mark. I will leave the other 2 bottles in my cellar for a couple of years. I expect some more magic than.

This really a beautiful malbec. Fruit very present, well integrated, great balance, medium to full bodied, elegant, refined, P/Q is super, dense, length is ok. Not the complexity of the big names but a real pleasure to drink

Too heavy, missed acidity, not very refined. Better to drink rather cold

Complex but very elegant wine. Tannins still present but not agressive. Nicely integrated fruit. Leather, long finish. Can still keep for a while but I will not wait too long to drink the next bottle.

Another bottle completely oxidised. Young it was very enjoyable but after 4-5 years the wines collaps and become very unstable.
Apparently more recent years are more solid of this producer. Hope it is true...

This was really very good. Minerality, nice acidity, longeur, complexity. Unlike other bottles this one showed normal evolution. I sincerely hope Thomas Morey will ascertain stabilty in his wines. But a gifted producer as he is, will find the solution.

This wine was absolutely fabulous. Color shows almost no evolution. Still young outlook. In the norse very fine flavours of lychee, peach, very elegant, tasted still very young, acidity still present, very distinguished and than there is ‘la grande finale’. One of the best Batard I ever drank.

Very good but Clos Mogador needs decant a couple of Horus before tasting otherwise alcohol too present.

A super nice Volnay of an excellent year. Not nearly at its peak. Still tannines very present and very much on fruit. Balance is super. Finish is long and subtile.

Lagrange 2012 : very nice nose. Integrated fruit, bit leather, bit tobacco. However at tasting the whole story falls a bit apart. Secondary and tertiary flavours rule. I should have opened the bottles earlier. But to be fair, overall the wine keeps its balance which is definitely a recognition.

What a bottle ! Now at its top and will stay there for a while. Aristocratic, nicely integrated fruit, still on primary notes, long finish... a real beauty !

Although the wine is old and has secundary and tertiary flavours and lost its power, you can still sense the greatness and distinction this wine once had. In the philosophy of ‘age before beauty’ I rate this Ruchottes 90 !

I would have expected that this Chambolle was old but absolutely not the case. Charming and elegant as a Chambolle should be. Still plenty of fruit and well I,tegrated with tannines. A great bottle !

Surprisingly well bodied wine for a Beaujolais, gamay grape. Nice balance and structure. After taste was present but limited.

Very tasteful. Dark fruit, spices, intense but also some secundary phase coming up. After taste not so present as 2 years ago. This was my last 2014 bottle but the wine is now ready to drink.
