    February 7, 2015 - Much better than previous bottle. Pulled cork and gave 2 hours of air (no decant). Initially showed a little tight with some smoke on the finish, but gave way to an earthier and rounder feel on the palate. Color of the wine is dark red/amber with some hue on the edges. Nose is of spice, cardamom, leather. On palate initially fruit, giving way to some smoke and leather with a long finish. I like this wine and look forward to enjoying it over the next 5 years. I think one must give wines like this time to evolve in bottle.

    June 23, 2014 - Like the previous bottle I had perhaps four years ago, also this one was defective, though not quite as badly. Very beety aromas on the nose that did blow off a bit after a while though. The structure and mouthfeel are quite classy, but it's just barely drinkable because of the '04 ladybirds or whatever.

    February 19, 2014 - PnP. Tasted a btl of Chambertin 96 Gelin the day before. Suprisingly consistent in relation to the Grand Cru! Seems on a first peak now, much better impression than last btl some 3 yrs ago, could get even better with 2 or 3 yrs more.
    Deep color for Pinot, very ripe fruit and yes, heavy charcoal at the beginning but vanishing mostly after 30 min. Sappy, good supporting acid, tasted very well on its own.
    Very well done and enjoyable basic Cote de Nuits-Villages.

    July 18, 2013 - so - I read Pjaines note below - as of today, this wine was still showing decent acid, but sadly some of the "charcoal " that he alluded to. I had this wine about 2 yrs ago and it was VERY stemmy then. Today its something else. Going to hope that it is going thru a metamorphosis and will revisit in another 18 months. I have 4 bottles, and feel like its worth the wait. Don't think there's much here now, but the acidity gives me hope. This is off a 90 minute decant as well I should note. If I try another bottle in the near future, it will see at a min 3 + hrs. Cheers aye.

Burgundy-Report

    (Bachelet Denis Côte de Nuits Villages) Medium-plus colour. The nose is pungent with cedary green odours, a significant swirl is required to release a faint sweet red note. Overnighting makes little difference to the aroma profile. The palate is supple, well textured and has a ripe complexion, but the cedar is very forward here too. Excellent for CdNV length, slightly creamy - but too green, even on day two

    (Bachelet Denis Côte de Nuits Villages) Deeper coloured and a little more purple than the Ecard Savigny that preceded it. The floral nose is wide and fresh with traces of cedar and a warm and sweet, slightly creamy and smoky depth. The palate is well concentrated for the appellation, flavour-packed and just a little sweet. Fresh acidity and grainy tannin combine to make this just a little more rustic than the Savigny, but the acidity pins you down for a reasonably long finish. That 2004 cedar note is also there on the palate, but in a modest fashion. It’s not the best example of this wine from the last years, but it’s a good example and as always, it shows lots of value.
