    August 5, 2020 - SLDS August 2020 - Maybe the world is ending tasting: Rich, deeply coloured. Redcurrant, five spice, cola, ash and cherry. Taking on another dimension with air and just lifting out of the glass more and more with time. Savoury, spicy, great depth and balance. Powerful but also delicate. Superb.

    November 16, 2019 - From shipment that was delayed during shipping with label completely worn off. Surprisingly held together and floral aromatics coaxed out after 2 hours. Subtle, delineated palate. Wow.

    October 23, 2019 - Part of a 2016 DRC tasting, a vintage that impressed with how approachable it already was, purity, elegance and versatility. For me, the La Tâche scored best, followed by Richebourg and Romanée-Conti – although the latter may well surpass the La Tâche in the long run. Corton came in last. Montrachet, Échezeaux and Grands-Échezeaux were not produced commercially that year and older vintages offered instead.

    Ripe cherry fruit, dense and intense. Rocky minerality but also a deep, dark earthiness waving from the distance. Herbaceous nuances keep popping up. Rather full body with vibrant acidity and firm tannins harmoniously woven into the fabric.

    October 23, 2019 - DRC 2016 – what survived the frost: Intro: Another great vintage. At this early stage I slightly prefer the 2016s over the 2015s at the same point last year as the former show a bit more open and complex (due to a less dominant fruit core). Out of the 5 reds, the Richebourg is my #1 with its early charms and seductiveness. The La Tache is the most complex and shows a tad more open than the Romanee Conti, which is so dense and packed that it very likely will reach higher highs than all other wines. The RSV also boasts the fantastic structure and finesse without the incredible depth of the big 3.

    TN: Fresh red berries, sweet strawberries, sour cherries, fresh and sweet cherries, herbs, wet stone. Intense, complex and precise but not at the same insane level as the big three. Same is true for the length. Impeccable structural frame with ultra-fine tannins and a perfect, well-integrated acidity. Also here, great structure but not as fine and polished as the big three, yet still on an incredibly high level. All in all a great wine which will age gracefully and should reach the elusive 97+ points category once mature.

    June 28, 2019 - Dégustation Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Verticale 2016, avec Déjeuner (1243 Bourgogne Society - Beaune): Sit-down tasting with Aubert of the 2016 lineup. More black vs red fruit on both nose and palate with alluring perfume. Expanding from middle through finish with tannins starting to assert themselves as well. Lots of energy on very long finish that comes across as nearly perfectly balanced already. There is a bit of protruding new oak right now that bothered some people, but I expect that will easily integrate years before I would even contemplate opening a bottle. 95-96 point potential. Most preferred Richebourg today, but I respectfully disagreed.
