Community Tasting Notes 5

  • Ivan Strouchki wrote: 92 points

    August 8, 2021 - Pale golden robe. Tight but fresh, energetic nose; tidal pool, citrus, lavender, juicy pear. Texturally remarkable—gripping viscosity, at the same time mineral lift, overall impression of great purity (in fact, at this stage, almost austerity), terrific length. Taste profile: white juicy fruits, then salt, lemon, grapefruit, and white pepper, finally fresh (astringency included) and later (more soothing) roasted walnuts, much later, vanishing savory notes. At this stage at least, begs for food; would wonderfully counterbalance many heavy-cream-based chicken recipes, for instance. Impressive now, more rewarding in 5 years. 91-92

    June 10, 2020 - Very tight at first and needed 4 hours to open up properly. Great nose with clean reduction, dried herbs, fresh citrus, licorice and new but integrated oak. More developed than hoped for on palate but great acidity, subtle integrated oak and reduction. Finish a bit short considering all the other great proponents of the wine

    June 5, 2020 - A private lunch (Restaurant Bak, Amsterdam, NL): From a south-facing, partially terraced .75 hectare Clos overlooking the town of Arbois, planted with Chardonnay at a density of 12,000 vines per hectare, aged for 24 months in 1/3 new oak. Coche-like matchstick nose, tightly wound and full of energy, marries power and concentration to elegance and freshness in a seamless and silky frame like (otherwise) only a top Burgundy can, succulent but fresh fruit, savoury oak, excellent persistence. Still very young, needs time to unfold and should last 20 years at least. Masterful - especially considering the youngish (2002) vines.

    June 9, 2018 - Short note - Tighter than barberon, more elegant, salty, lemon, red apples, very well balanced. Long finish, complex and solid concentration. 92-93p
