This is Freddy Mugnier of seduction in a glass stamp to no limits.. Drinking almost like an Amoureuses at about 80% minus the texture Amoureuses has. This is just a perfect glass of pinot that is giving showing and just beginning to drink well. This will hold for at least 10 + years. Open an hour before now to let it breath a bit. Wish I had more bottles as I paid about $75 for this back in day. Layers of balanced fruit that is so well integrated and bright. The nose is just so giving and like a piece of art that I could smell all day long.

This wine is just starting to show it’s beauty. The texture and mouthfeel is seductive, balance and complete. Drinks amazing with air but I would hold as this is just beginning to enter its drinking life. Will cellar for another 15+ years easily and show its beauty even more.

Drinking at peak. Light ruby in color. Nose of truffled mushrooms, earth and loads of minerals.. On the plate this is power without weight. Just beautiful and wish I had more bottles!

Nose of pure earthy meaty red cherry fruit. Round, balanced, polished with a seductive delicate finish that lingers. Drinking so well now and will age. Rousseau's '03's are stupendous.

Gorgeous dark cherry fruit gives this wine impeccable balance. Soft and luscious on the palate. I gave this 2 hours of air, showed well but will age for years to come. Bravo Freddy!

A good CDLR from Rousseau but not great. Definitely missing that balanced sweet fruit I have had from other vintages. Still a great wine considering the vintage.

This is beautiful! Piercing acidity with brioche, toasty finish that is quite long. Drinking very well now but will hold too.

Loved this! Balanced pinot fruit of sweet dark cherries with ample of amount of tannins to make this wine complete. Freddy's signature winemaking style is all over this as it has that Chambolle finesse .

At Maison Giraud with Paul/Judy. Mouthfeel and finish is of grand cru level. Just pure structured intense finish that went on for 60 seconds+. One of the best premier cru Burgundies I have ever had.

This is one gorgeous Champagne that is complete. Gives Krug a run for its money. I could drink this all day long...

Popped cork 3 hours prior to drinking. Gorgeous red beaming fruit, lovely structure, impeccable balance and just flat out a gorgeous Chambolle. Again, Freddy let's the wine speak without much work. Drinking well now with air but will last for years.

Opened 2 hours prior to drinking and glad I did. Soft cherry notes, medium balance, silky texture and a nice medium finish. Really enjoyed this wine and glad I have more bottles...

This wine is drinking lovely at the moment. Bright cherry color with subtle pinot flavors that are not complex but very seductive and pretty. Really enjoyed this and glad I have a few more in the cellar.

Just a lovely village wine that is well balanced. Soft red fruits that surrounded my mouth with a lovely medium finish. Wish I had more bottles.

With steak at CUT. This wine took some time to open but it's definitely in a closed state at the moment. It showed dark pinot fruit with underlying minerals of earth, softened out tannins and a nice medium finish. Going to hold remaining bottles for another 5 years as this wine has tremendous potential.

Amazing wine considering the vintage. Light in color with some cloudiness showing. Subtle Vosne spice on the nose which leads to medium weight Burgundy goodness fruit, spice with a nice long finish. Power without weight. It has definitely put more weight/complexity since I had it last year...

At Delmonico's in Vegas. Gorgeous Chambolle nose of sweet cherries and seduction as I knew right away this was just flat out incredible Burgundy that I was about to drink. On the palate, precision like minerals and intensty with sweet pinot fruit just lingering on a very long finish. Really sexy wine that you beg for more after each sip. This is entering it's drinking window and will last for probably another 20+ years... Amazing wine.

Pulled cork 30 minutes prior to drinking. A lovely Pomerol that has just started to open. Revealing cedar, soft tobacco and earthy character on the nose. As I kept drinking this I realized how silky and smooth this young Bordeaux is. This wine will improve but can be drunk now. Really lovely...

Lovely nose of soft delicate pinot fruit. Tasting this wine was Chambolle heaven in a glass. Silky red fruits with a lovely sexy finesse that has just begun to show. No green and this needs 3+ years.

Popped and poured this wine. Soft Vosne spice with a nice balance of cherries and minerals with a touch of earth on the medium finish. Light in color for a 6 year old wine and drinking beautifully right now. Seductive and elegant is the best way to describe this wine and glad I have more bottles..

Light yellow in color with toasty brioche, mellow citrus and classy bubbles on the palate with a finish that went on and on.. This is some classy juice and is aging very nicely. I could drink this daily.

This is some wine and a WOW wine to be exact. The earth, , minerals, limestone engulfed my mouth in a deep complex finish that went on and on. This is just incredible stuff and while it's young I loved it and would open more bottles. The best Fevre wine I have ever had

This is one serious big Boudots that is closed up but still showing its power. Racy dark fruits with lots of power emerged quickly in medium long finish that was classic in every way. I really like the winemaking style at this Domaine and will wait at least another 10+ years to open any more bottles.

Great citrus laden fruit with loads of minerals and great Chablis acidity. I liked this a lot and drinking great with some air.

This wine is beginning to show secondary Burgundy flavors of mushrooms, truffles, wet stones and lots of minerals. Tight at the start but mellowed out and developed into a lovely dark cherry earthy Burg that I really enjoy with a long medium finish. This will get better in 5+ years so I'm not opening any more bottles...

Lovely mellow citrus notes with a bit of honey flavors wrapped up in a nice complex finish and very impressive for the vintage. This Dom will be even more rewarding with 5+ years of cellar sleep....

Sexy Chambolle fruit screamed from my glass as the wine got 2 hours of air and grew in complexity as the night went on. A really lovely village that will reward with patience.
