    August 3, 2017 - A bit of a disappointment. Seemed overall disjointed and clunky. Seemed like it has passed its peak.

    December 20, 2016 - Very much in line with other CT notes. Excellent wine. Groffier quickly becoming one of my favorite producers.

    March 15, 2011 - Fascinating wine. Opened 60 hours ago, seemed very backward in the nose, and quite tough and closed on the palate--the fruit was there but there was lot of earthiness and astringent tannins. So I decided not to serve it, thinking this was another not so great 01 (though the 01 Georges Mugneret Chambolle Musigny Beaux Bruns I did serve was killer). So tonight, having sealed and pumped the bottle three days ago, I opened it and it was totally different--lovely red fruits, tremendous bouquet on the palate, beautiful balance, tannins all resolved, long and lovely finish. So I agree with Milwaukeewino that I may have caught this at its peak, but I strongly recommend a long decanting ( I know, you're not supposed to decant 01s) or maybe opening it and then corking/pumping it for a couple of days. I buy a lot of Groffier and I have never been disappointed. This was a memorable bottle.

    February 4, 2010 - Brilliant ruby. Not turning brown at all but clear separation at the rim. Likely never a deep color anyway. This was born to be delicate.
    First whiff our of the bottle reminded me of the best of Oregon (sacralige, I know, but I came to Burgundy after Oregon, thus the reverse comparison).
    Nose of Bing cherries and dried cranberries. Screams Pinot. I get a little of the forest floor/fallen fruit but really the nose is clean and bright and fresh. Man, there is a lot going on.
    I get Asian spice/licorice family of scents. Strawberries? Tea? Chocolate. Cinamon. It is beautifully complex.
    The palate is showing a touch of age.
    LONG finish. Very rich and complex. It is all there. Perfectly integrated tannins. Sweet and smooth.
    Ripe red fruit. Seamless body front to back. Full mid-palate with no heaviness. Bright acidity. Swirling flavors.
    There's also a sense of restrained power. This is no whimp despite its delicacy and refinement.
    I have to believe I caught this at the exact right moment. This is what gets people coming back to Burgundy. Groffier is a genius.

    August 3, 2009 - Southside Chambolle 1er Crus (Chicago IL): Served Blind. Darkest red fruits of the flight. A bit of earthiness and a nice vegetal note. Ripe dark cherry and berry on the palate with a great finish. Some darker spice notes as well. Nice acid structure.
