    October 2, 2019 - Chef's Counter at Willard's (Willards, Cambridge, MN): Medium dark red color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 90 minutes. This just opens beautifully over 20 minutes and continues to build over the first hour plus. The nose is alluring with an enticing mix of dried spice and rose petal, sous bois and red fruit with woodsy accent. The palate is medium bodied, lively with a mix of cherry and red currants, sous bois, mineral, and a slowly building earthiness highlighted by the smoky spices. Those complaining about this being heavily oak influenced should take a step back and revisit. 93+ to 94pts.

    September 6, 2015 - Was interested in this wine, given the complaints I've heard about Magnien being overly extracted and overly oaked. I drank about 10% of the bottle over about 2-3 hours, while breathing in the glass/bottle, and then consumed the rest with dinner. I enjoyed this wine, and didn't find the oak over powering, although pregnant wife immediately detects wood chips. It also had a bit of a smokey character that may have come from the barrel. It was a beautiful clear ruby/purple color. An ever evolving baking spice and floral nose that was mixed with ripe plum and coffee. The alcohol was fairly high and it had a somewhat thick and soft texture that came across a little flabby and almost buttery. I have not had enough Gevrey Chambertin to know what is typical of Gran Cru, but I suspect that this would not stand up to competition from this vineyard. Nonetheless, it pared nicely with veal ribeye's gently fried in butter. Your standards would have to be a very high not to enjoy this.
