July 14, 2021 - Red fruit, spices (white pepper), some soil, quite light, still a bit young.
January 28, 2021 - Not sure if I opened this too young or what, but it was very one dimensional and not particularly yielding. Loved the 2015 rendition, but this seemed less full and not as enjoyable. Perhaps time will help?
January 13, 2021 - Acidity hasn't yet resolved into the wine. Underlying fruit was there and was better on the 2nd night. However definitely a few more years before this will become enjoyable
December 29, 2020 - Slight Brett on the nose, ripe raspberry. Acid seems a little forward. But otherwise nice red fruits on the palate. Will try again in 2025
December 5, 2020 - Deeply pitched, very expressive aromas of raspberry liqueur. Texture is quite coarse; a little hollow in the middle. Decent enough but not a rebuy for me in this vintage with this approaching 50 bucks.
November 4, 2020 - Reminds me of the gorgeous 2009 rendition; this is like violet water with a lithe impression of pomegranate, raspberry fruit that conveys a powdery, airy character. Mineral, red licorice, violet perfume on the nose and in the mouth and a whiff of juniper berry. Spicy texture with fine tannins. Like drinking a Chambolle at much less money!
October 31, 2020 - No detectable Brett on this bottle. Crunchy red fruits with nice lift and balance. Showed better than last will revisit in 3-6months.
October 30, 2020 - Floral with incredibly bright red fruit and crunchy berries. As it opens up, some dark cherry, violet and licorice comes along.
It’s incredibly dense. It needs more time, but I believe this could be become very nuanced for a Bourgogne in 2-3 years. 91+
October 22, 2020 - Acidity and strength of flavor/full body were the two biggest features on this. After a couple of hours open the nose evolved a bit to become more interesting. I didn’t like it much now due to huge acidity and minima fruit (maybe it’s a bad bottle?) but can see it evolving. Will wait until 2022 to open the next one.
October 21, 2020 - Fairly dark ruby color, some nice florals and light dried herbs on the nose, wow, tremendous intensity, pure, deep cherry, little whisps of those herbs and spice, strong acidity, and some noticeable but not obtrusive rocky tannins. A lot of depth of flavor here, powerful, if not particularly complex or elegant. Drink this with food that can stand up to it, a grilled steak comes to mind, and just enjoy the raw burgundy intensity.
