    December 23, 2020 - Drinking window is well beyond 2020. Confirmed both with corovin pretaste and then on decanting.

    Blue and black stone fruit in the palate, with pleasantly lingering finish of brighter red fruit and balanced tannins.

    Some vegetative malodour on opening but blew away with decant for 30 minutes to an hour. Medium weight.

    March 5, 2019 - Better than an average wine, but not by leaps or bounds. Polished stoney red and black cranberry and cherry -- what's interesting about this wine is you can taste cranberry as if it is a juicy and tart, without sharp acidic twang. It has a little stony overlay that makes it more approachable. Then wham, you get hit with that twang. A somewhat short finish, but it is smooth with cranberry and dark stoniness till the then. The short is finish, but it is full of fruit. Overall a bit tart for my plate, but this just is inside the borderline of being too tart. Some may find it a pleasant sour cherry. The most redeeming factor, to me, is the polished finish and dark stones that make the cranberry more approachable. Wouldn't pay the $70 that wine searcher is asking, nor the $50 that I paid... but at original cellar price of $25 this has aged into something more than your average Bourgogne. I think best paired with a herbal fatty meat, e.g., a lamb with a lot of sage/rosemary.

    July 7, 2018 - Mostly mature black and red cherry aromas, then reverses to mostly red cherry flavors. Good weight for its level, also well balanced. Time to drink up.

    December 26, 2017 - Brilliant Bourgogne has aged fantastically well.

    September 3, 2017 - Denne har utviklet seg pent over flere år syns jeg, fra ren bringebærduft og svake vaniljetoner via mørkere bærpreg og nå også tegn til morkent trevirke og skogbunn.
    Saftig, flott mørk frukt på smak, 'chunky' og med godt grep. Middels syre, ganske bra med tanniner. Pent utviklet og i en god fase nå, blir nok ikke bedre men tåler pent noen år til

Rockss and Fruit

    (Ghilslaine Barthod Bourgogne Rouge "Les Bons Batons") Acid-driven, tart and hot and never really came together over the next four days. Too minerally and not enough fruit. I love Barthod, but don't get me wrong, this was a clunker of an '05. It was long on the finish but that neccesarily was not a good thing for this wine. I have one more bottle which I'll forget about for five years and see where that takes me. Hopefully some place better than the previous bottle.

    (Barthod Ghislaine Bourgogne Rouge) Medium, medium-plus cherry-red. Slightly volatile and high-toned, but these notes mainly disappear with swirling to leave a deeper, cream-edged base - it’s then quite impressive. Fresh in the mouth, dense and slightly furry with very good fruit that follows through into the finish. Very impressive - average 2004 villages quality here - but I’d still mainly drink over the next 2-3 years.
