Community Tasting Notes 7

    December 9, 2017 - Saturday lunch with Eddie (Masseria, DC): Stewed red fruit, dry cherry, strawberry, tomato paste, soy, licorice, rose and earth. Fully integrated palate, sweet slightly dry red fruit, bright acidity, strong earthy mineral and a medium to long stewed red fruit and soy driven finish. Too much soy, past its prime.

    October 22, 2017 - Big 50 lunch (Mi Casa): Impromptu addition, pop and pour, showing a lot of soy and steely mineral, slightly advanced impression. With air, starts to show subtle raspberry and blackberry, sous bois, rose, sweet spices and mineral. Fully integrated palate, showing a hint of soy and subtle red fruit, medium acidity, good mineral presence and a medium finish. This would have shown better if slow oxed/adouzed. The stem with only a drop showed a beautiful floral nose.

    June 25, 2017 - Winos' excellent adventure in France; 6/22/2017-6/27/2017 (All over France): The color was bright with a good amount of red when I checked from my cellar before coming to France. Unfortunately, it is a bit murky after three days of traveling. Bernard clearly finds the sweetness and density of the 69 Musigny; however, it never opens up. The sweetness is there but it remains murky and cloying. Such a shame!
