Funny Grapefruit notes , flinty and a wood note. Not vanilla note , just wood. Got better with some air.

Nice spicy thing in the nose. Pinot for sure. Not as heavy as I would have thought and not so heavy in wood. A plane and good Gevrey , but not one to die for…

A elegant and creamy style. Easy to drink , one could say : too easy. Perhaps missing some structure , but is it the year ‘16 ? Got a bit more masculine later…

Wunderfull spicy Gevrey nose. The elegant Pinot style of Burgundy , Minerals , a lavendel note . This was my first try with Lucien Le Moine and I must say , not a bad one. Many Gevrey’s has gone my way , but it was one of the very best. Respect.

Drank over 2 days and last was the best. Dark fruit and the French Pinot is clearly here. A walk in a forest in October…Not a big wine , but what one can except for the price nowadays…. Still OK

On the Dark side and reduktiv. Not at all bad but we got a Duroché from 2017 too and that was much fresh , more red fruit . A taste 24 hours later could do the Drouhin-Laroze better…

Some young Vosne spice and to drink now , though I think 2-3 years could do good. I think I prefer the domain’s Gevrey…

Took it to ‘No.2’ . Typical Gevrey and a good one. Marc Roy delievers…We liked it now and 2017 is so very nice to drink now.

Still structure and a Big Langhe Nebb. Could be taken for a Barolo from a lesser good producer.
Very fine.

That was not very exciting , almost sad to drink. Perhaps the 2014 year is not for me or the one bottle was bad…Dry tannins , no fruit and pruney…

Lighter red color. Raspberry , Minerals , surely red fruit more than Dark fruit. Some organic and very pure notes. Elegant wine. Peter liked it a lot.

Lighter than the Gattera from Veglio ( 2014 ) . More elegant , still Wild flowers , medicin . Typical Nebbiolo. Almost elegant and a good exp. of a 2014.

Very Dark Nebbiolo , modern producer. Menthol , flowers , medicin , some licorice and this is very good Barolo from 2014. Seems to have many years left.

Bad bottle ? I don’t know , but I was no fan. A bit oxidized in the nose and the taste. Not as other CT’er has written , so perhaps a bad bottle.

Close to last time ( june ‘20 ) and still a easy wine to drink. A step up from a Bourgogne Rouge and this is a great producer.

The beautifull wine could be a good Village. First time tryed. Wonderfull nose with dark red fruit and Provence spice. Minerals too. The taste is just way over a normal Bourgogne Rouge and blind it could match a Village from a great producer. Respect to Ponsot.

Not much in the nose , but great Gevrey notes in mouth. Hope to earn some more score after a night in the fridge.

With Peter in the garden : Very dark…No, Black , color. Mineral notes and Shiraz -like in taste. Heavy but not the monster that Shiraz can be. The 14.5 % was not shining through. Well done. Called Durif in France…

I got more red fruit and strawberry notes. I had hoped more Vosne spice , but that was not the thing. To buy….Yes , but not by the cases , still not a expensive wine and that should be in my mind.
