    August 28, 2017 - Overall a pleasant Chiroubles - with a caveat. Pale ruby color, fairly quick legs - alcohol on the lighter side. Healthy amount of fruit on the nose - red cherries and rhubarb - with hints of wood shavings and tobacco. But faintly in the background - trace aromas of sulphurous burnt matches. Almost unnoticeable but it was there. On the palate, velvety soft tannins and pleasing acidity. Nice round edges - nothing sharp here. Medium finish.

    January 19, 2015 - Le chambolle-musigny du Beaujolais ! Voici un chiroubles hors du commun. Jamais je n'ai bu un cru du Beaujolais aussi raffiné. Le nez est intense et délicat, mêlant fleurs et épices douces. La bouche est très soyeuse, les tanins ultras fins, l'ensemble est aérien, d'un équilibre parfait. Une bouteille très classe, qui me fait penser aux chambolles de JF Mugnier. Qui d'autre que Daniel Bouland est capable de porter le beaujolais à ce niveau de raffinement ? Desjourney ?

    March 30, 2014 - Lots of structure for a Beaujolais. Dark in color. Powerful Gamay fruit. This will benefit from a few years in the cellar.

    February 18, 2014 - Tuesday Night (Bin 75): See through bright rose with pale rim; tartness explodes out of the glass, medicinal, grapey, strawberry, cherry, some vegetal notes in background, minerality like ash; fresh, cooler temp which helped, strawberry pie, pomegranate tea, tart, long finish; tasty and good value.

    October 18, 2013 - Nose and palate with wild plum notes and evident spice components. Flavors and body on the light side upon open, but picked up significant density and improved flavor profile over time.
