    August 10, 2021 - It shouldn't be posssible for a straightforward wine to score higher than 90, but what a great exception. Wonderfully pure & succulent berries.

    April 16, 2021 - Pnp. Transparent rød farge. Åpen og fin på duft. Rød frukt med relativt høy modning. Balanseres av noen svale urtete aromaer. Lett rød frukt med noen vegetale elementer i munn. Slank Pinotfrukt med noe grove fatpregede tanniner som strammer opp i finish. Pent. Vil nok tjene på noen års lagring.

    April 13, 2021 - Pale ruby color. Very translucent. Nose of red cherries, raspberries, a hint of baking spice and some green, stemmy notes. Similar flavors on the palate. Definitely seems like there is some whole cluster, stemmy greenness on the palate but still enjoyable. Medium+ acid, medium tannins. Easy drinking weeknight wine.

    April 11, 2021 - Yum. More Beaujolais on day one, then mellows out into Burgundy by day two. Light on the tannin, great balance as always. Will compare against the ‘18 Bourgogne soon.

    Edit: not even a tiny bit faded on day 4, even with only about 5 oz left in the bottle. Remains juicy, bright, earthy, cherry. This is amazing wine from an outstanding producer, no doubt one of the best in Burgundy.
