    October 6, 2020 - A good btl, but not as good as my first (better than I remember my last). On the nose:.the funk seems gone, but plum, spice, soft leather, and a hint of vanilla. On the palate, excellent acidity, cranberry and spice, good density and and attenuated tannin on the slightly spicy and tangy finish. If this btl is representative, drink up.

    February 10, 2020 - Read 12/24 note so had to open another bottle. I disagree that it's fading. It's still young but softening faster than I would have thought last May. I agree with the 12/24 tasting note, although still score it lower. For me, it lacks richness in the middle and complexity. The complexity may come although the vintage dictates the 'stuffing'. As an example, the Calera Ryan bottling is a lighter wine but has the requisite richness so that it is very complex. (Wish I had some now!).

    May 10, 2019 - Medium body and color, appealing pinot nose although clearly not a riper wine, good balance. First to say, it is quite early to be drinking this wine. My bottle(s) stored at 55 have good acid balance, tannin left but not prominant. The flavor notes recorded thus far are on target, average finish. What is missing is richness and complexity of flavor. I saw this right after I bought the wine years ago and it is still missing. I don't see this ever being close to a top wine however, holding it longer should reward with bottle flavors. Those are not present now. Aside from vintage differences, the Porrets is a very different wine than Gouges' le St Georges and Vaucrains. I still remember those stunning wines, St Georges very rich and complete (should be a Grand Cru in my view ... Chevillon produces its complement), Vaucrains structured for the long haul. The Porrets is very much the simpler wine. I marked the form "neutral" because I'm ambivalent about holding it in my now limited storage of 100 bottles, much different than years ago with many hundreds. You decide. I lack the expertise to offer more than this.

    Allen Meadows from 2013. I agree this with reservation that the wine is not progressing to an encouraging place relative to complexity. I didn't read this before opening or would have noted the timeframe. Meadows and Robinson are the people I most trust (not myself!). Meadows palate is beyond sophisticated based on my decade of comparisons.
    ".... intensely earthy and beautifully complex nose of both red and blue pinot fruit, earth, violet and plum scents. ... supple mid-palate though the firm core of tannins apparent on the moderately austere and impressively long finish. 90-92 /2021+"

    February 27, 2019 - Red and blue fruit, cassis, cherries, clean fruit without the green herbal notes you may find in many 2011 Burgundies, there is density and power, like it, but was the last one.
