May 26, 2021 - Poised and balanced in its graceful decline. Soil elements beginning to overtake the fruit. Beautiful mature Burgundy.. Time to drink. 94-95
May 4, 2021 - Half bottle. Supposed to be legendary, but madeira (with some citrus/candied fruit notes). Hopefully will drink from full bottle of good provenance soon...
November 9, 2019 - Ponsot Clos de la Roche: Sadly, DOA.
July 18, 2019 - Supple with an appealing mix of spices and soft red fruit. Good bottle. Time to drink though.
April 26, 2019 - Boisson Vadot White Wines & A Mix of Old Red Burgundy (Paradise Valley, AZ USA): Served blind, the vintage reveal was shocking as this was drinking considerably younger. I thought it was '93 at the oldest, and wouldn't have been surprised if it were '02. Dark color, and lots of sauvages, with marvelous intensity. So many layers and it kept bouncing around feeling at times very young and moderately mature. The metaphor that sprang to mind was a young prodigy that’s a genius, model, and athlete. This is as complete and impressive as one could ever want.
October 21, 2018 - Hugh’s bottle, gifted by Sean. Wine of the Night for me but not for others. The French expression “animale” immediately came to mind as soon as I got a wift. Feral, dead leaves, wet fur, funky. Remarkably full on the palate and well balanced. A revelation for me.
October 21, 2017 - Intact and still a well structured wine. But this, and other bottles, trending towards acid on the finish, even more so after air time. Drink up. 93-
August 24, 2017 - Likely minor storage issue marred the surface nose and palate. But there was something nice left underneath.
June 23, 2017 - Musique & Vin Festival BYO Dinner (Château de Meursault): Small glass, brief note. Superb combination of fresh and maturing red berry and cherry aromas, then equally charming red cherry flavors. Fantastic.
March 30, 2015 - A vintage of this wine that I had not previously experienced. The nose hits on the desired elements of dark fruit, red fruit, sweet spices, and earth. Palate with good depth of flavor and balanced fruit, acid, and smooth mature tannins. Perhaps recent a peak, this wine should still perform well for quite some time.
