    June 13, 2020 - We let this sit in a decanter for an hour, it had quite a bit of sediment. It’s been a year since I last enjoyed this wine and it edges further into early maturity. More open bouquet of dark fruits, fine tannins have further softened, nice acidity and freshness, texture and finish bring you back for another sip. It’s added some complexity since last year and has more to come over the next decade. Drinking very well indeed.

    June 18, 2019 - Cloudy. Medium garnet in color. Nose is muted. Thinking about it now, this may have been slightly corked. It was just too shy and we had it against the '95 Les Cailles which was singing. There was a note of wet basement which blew off after 20 minutes. I wish we would've given this more time. It was decanted poorly by the server as well. He shook it. The fruits are darker, with blackberry and black cherry, wet leaves, leather, tobacco leaf. More masculine than its counterpart. On the palate, it is medium bodied, alcohol is in check, tannins are still very perceivable and further aging will be required to tame them. It comes off a bit rustic. Finish is short. Not totally impressed by this, honestly. Hope my last bottle is better.

    NOTE2SELF: Decant and audoze for at least 3 hours next time. Lots of sediment in this wine.

    May 31, 2019 - First bottle from a recent auction lot. Youthful deep color, a little funk on the nose which blew off after 30 minutes to reveal a fresh, deep, relatively open dark fruited nose. The fruit was more sour cherry than the dark profile I usually find with his Vaucrains. That aside this was a lovely glass of NSG in early maturity. Nice frame, balance and vigor. Persistent finish. I generally agree with Winesnouts note from earlier this year.

    February 11, 2019 - A terrific mature Burgundy. Great bouquet, very concentrated and aromatic. Definitely a masculine type of Burg, sour cherries, some smoke (and brett) and sandalwood. One of my last bottles from a case of 12 - all with consistent notes. Definitely good for another 3-4 years.

    October 29, 2017 - Sampled from a pristinely cellared bottle kindly provided by T.G., this medium garnet, 22-year-old wine is in an amazing place. Gorgeously aromatic, it offers a bouquet of Bing cherries, raspberries, baking spices, orange peel, cocoa and loamy earth. Medium-bodied, freshly acidic, seamlessly alcoholic (13.5%) and with melted tannins, it delivers a flavor profile which mirrors the nose. Nicely dense on the mid-palate, it proceeds to a long, smooth finish. This is what Burgundy is all about! Drink now-2022.
