beautiful open nose with spices, red and black fruit, perfume like, minerality, excellent balance, tension and long finish. Drank 2 glasses with corvine. I did notice that the cork was very soft for the needle to get in , so perhaps very wet cork. Very good to drink but also good to keep.

pure pinot fruit with great depth and finesse and balance. red fruit, earthy tones combine with light caramel. Drinking very well at the moment and good length and concentration and a truly enjoyable wine.

from barrel and supposed to be bottled in coming weeks. Zen like wine with great balance and structure in an understated way.

Great Wine , the fruits, and herbs and minerals jump out of your glass with a great intensity! sold and dense wine and the acidity keeps it in great balance.

wonderfull nose of red fruit, mocha, cherries, earth, minerals. I have been drinking a lot of 2006 lately and these wines are getting ready very quickly. Very good quality here and good depth en length.

Great Bottle. nose with (strawberries, cherries) red fruit, spice and secondary tones of autumn, delicate. My wife called this wine both male and female and indeed it combines the strength of the cote the nuits with silky and flowery and pafrum tones. Good length and balanced wine. No green elements what you find in other 04's

Beautiful and sensual nose of red fruits light spices, mocha tones, minerality and very complex. Very balanced and round tannins (but present ) and more blackfruit tones in the taste, the wood will need some furhter integration and I have no doubts that it will integrate good, acidity as with many 2009 on the lower side but all in all a very good showing. Not a blockbuster heavy weight Chambertin but very balanced complex stylish one. Still very young and would open the next bottle in 10 years time.

Have had this wine many times and it is now better than 2 years ago, nose of melon, citrus, some butter and nuttiness and minerals and good acidity and all in good balance and also gained more weight. Meursault in character and drinking very good at the moment

At opening a bit tight and strong graph nose

This changes is a hour to detailed fruit and sweet more chambolle parfum, with an under brush of earth, beetroot, light mocha and all perfectly in balance.

quite simple and not much body. a bit disappointing, perhaps too young but doubt it will gain more depth.

Great Bottle, smooth silky, depth, combination of fruit and autumn and good length, excellent quality, perhaps not the depths of the great grand crus but I like it.

A bit odd this wine, frist smell is like liquid stone and turning into too much wood, gamey and tart fruit. I had this wine before and that bottle was more balanced.

60 year old anjou dessert wine. Colour gold, first smell a bit milky, however this changed in 15 minutes to orange, citrus, caramel, peacan nuts, apricots and still very fresh with complex flavours. Very long length which stays for a long time with orange, nuts, and citrus. acidity is high and this is not too sweet, so watch out with very sweet desserts. Great wine with very good balance.

Drunk this bottle at our Christmas dinner with hare. Decanted for 1 hour.
Very dark colour, complex flavours of cherry, orange peel, spices, pepper, minerals and very round silky tannins, superb balance and could easily handle the food. It can be laid down for another 10 years however it is very enjoyable at this stage.
