    June 2, 2021 - Massive improvement. Smoky nose, a hint of menthol. Tannins are present but receding. Lacks complexity. Structure is quite fine.

    April 25, 2021 - So many ugly, ugly reviews. I bought a dozen, then after an uninspiring first bottle, auctioned 6. Now I regret that. Maybe i''m being too uncritical, but after drinking roughly 4000 red burgundies over the past ten years, I can safely say this is a very nice Charmes, sourced from the very best spot within that vineyard. My last several of this were an easy 94; soft, silken, yes, lacking in complexity to go higher, yet lovely stuff. And at half the price of more renowned producers. A terrific value.

    March 27, 2020 - Changes character after 3 hours decant. Really nice then but needs this long to get past the tingly tongue taste. At 4 hours is even better. Colour is less bricked too

    March 4, 2019 - Reductive with a little spritz. Smells like Mentholatum. Everything I look for in Grand Cru burgundy. Dumped after forcing down a glass.

    December 21, 2018 - Much friendlier now than my note from a year and a half ago indicates. Still reductive, sour, and oaky on the first night but it softened into a more elegant portrayal by breakfast ;)
    I think it is still holding back some and I should not have sold it so short in my prior comments. Of course, every bottle and every cork is a crapshoot with MI. 4+11+17+8= 90
