    September 9, 2016 - Surprising dark color; first whiff notes of coffee grounds which is my alarm bell for oxidation but somehow blew off quickly; a very dark fruit melange slowly emerged with accompanying spice complexity; rounded out to show very nice fruit and balance. Surprised to find it to be so gutsy and alive.

    July 16, 2006 - TN: A Great Sunday Afternoon (86 Meursault, 2x76 Burg, 89/90 Hermitage, etc.) (Tokyo): Color has lightened significantly from what I imagine the ‘76s originally looked like, but still carries a bit of cherry brightness. Nose is initially closed and palate seems a bit thin. But soon, lesson learned again (see Jobard above). Nose picks up a bit of warm but fresh earth, just ripe cherry and black fruit, and a good degree of decaying leaf. Palate begins to show a bit more of the vintage character, with a level of ripeness and warmth that is uncharacteristic of Montille. There’s even a little gently roasted plum in here, but there’s still that signature acid that makes even a vintage like this live forever. Never as fresh or bright or piercing as leaner vintages can be, but still gaining detail throughout the afternoon. This is the wine I keep coming back to.
