    January 16, 2017 - D'un 3 litres, de la collection de Champlain Charest. Très belle expression d'un Gevrey avec de l'âge, arrivé à maturité. Le vin me semble toutefois manquer un peu de fraicheur (fruit), et est quelque peu asséchant. Peut-être les conditions de gardes ou de transport ont-elles fait défaut ? Malgré tout, une très belle bouteille, partagée avec mes meilleurs amis à l'occasion d'une soirée mémorable.

    December 14, 2013 - At BBR December tasting Singapore. From Magnum. Medium garnet. Pleasant nose of red fruit with roses and some spices. On the palate rather sinewy and acidic though preventing a higher note.

    August 24, 2013 - Pre-Op Drinks at Kel's (Kelvin and Joyce's Place, Bishan): A rather old school Burg, a bit on the rustic side, but pretty enjoyable. The nose was on the edge of smelling over-developed, with plenty of savoury soy sauce and bloody game meat aromas, along with some balsamic notes, and then red fruited scents and a little hint of dried flowers trailing behind. A rather dirty, very earthy bouquet, but quite pleasant in its own right if you like your older Burgs. The palate had a savoury, almost salty tone on its attack, with chicken stock layered over matured flavours of sour plums and stewed prunes, before it opened up surprisingly into a round, fleshy midpalate with a nice flush of more youthful red cherry notes behind. A thick-set, slightly tarry finish ended with a touch of loamy soil and another lovely burst of red fruit. In many ways, this was a very mature tasting wine, yet it still had good depth and nice juicy freshness to it. However, one does get a sense that the structural integrity of the wine is just starting to slip now. While still eminently drinkable, this would have been better a couple of years back.

    June 14, 2013 - An nteresting bring in that I met this producer at Becky Wasserman`s home in Burgundy in 1993 and was immediately drawn to his somewhat rough and yet ready crafting of red Burgs that were built for the long run; this one was generally pleasing giving up some wild, tart, spicy and tangy red and black fruit notes finishing on the dry side with the tannins still untamed.
