August 3, 2021 - Impressed with the balance of this wine. It had nice complexity and curved gracefully as the wine aired.
June 20, 2021 - Into its peak window and should hold here for 3yrs easy, enjoy!
March 26, 2021 - Out of the gate very expressive heady perfume of spiced dark cherry and deep pitched earth. Floral/animal notes mixed in the palate with a very pretty lifted profile. Great flavor impact. This is not heavy or backward and for me ready to start drinking.
May 26, 2019 - Pnp, very attractive from the first pour, serious and brooding dark red fruit (cherries, raspberry) and classy spice. While not as fresh or herbal as the 13' Clos Vougeot served next to it, this had more than an acceptable level of acidity. Oak frames this well, with more than a suggestion but not getting in the way. Overall this LSG dazzled on entry and in to the mid palate, but couldn't run with the Clos Vougeot through the back and in to the finish. One of those experiences that makes one think, "a good 1er but not GC".
April 22, 2019 - No formal note. Great fruit, earth, some wood with nice tension all in balance. Wine was lovely and ready for consumption, enjoy!
October 14, 2017 - Lyon Tasting - Terre de Vins (Lyon Palais de la Bourse): This was a beauty. Quite light, supremely balanced. Best wine of the tasting for me.
October 2, 2017 - Medium-light garnet. Delicate nose of red fruit with some toasty oak. Loveley freshness and soft tannins. This is very enjoyable to drink but I miss the extra complexity the Chevillon wines have from this vineyard.
June 25, 2017 - MeV Gala. Drinking well already, attractive floral nose, surprisingly juicy fruit.
June 25, 2017 - Winos' excellent adventure in France; 6/22/2017-6/27/2017 (All over France): I had this from barrel so it is really interesting to drink. Decadent black fruit, blackberry, black cherry, lavender, sap and earth. Excellent concentration, beautifully layered generous black fruit, good acidity and earthy mineral and a long black fruit driven finish. Obviously very young but very enjoyable with generous black fruit.
June 22, 2016 - Musique & Vin Wine Tasting (Château du Clos de Vougeot): Floral and spice notes with black cherry and a hint+ of new oak that still needs to absorb. Dense fruit is the highlight here with structure that has softened substantially since last tasted 2+ years ago. Close to ready, 2020?
