    March 14, 2020 - Definitely impressed by the structure and depth of this for an AOC wine. Never would have guessed this wasn't at least village level. Deep black cherry fruit and burg earth. Still very much alive. However the acid was so high it was a bit distracting. More than a glass felt too much. Not sure if therefore this was a slightly off bottle. But the underlying quality was good.

    September 21, 2019 - Delicious.
    Surprisingly powerful, dark, rich, and full flavored; chewy but resolved tannins, with plenty of fruit still present; wow.

    There may be 5 years of life remaining, for those fortunate enough to still have bottles remaining in their cellar. I do!!!

    Rated 2 on a scale of -1 to +3.

    May 13, 2018 - This is the drinking beautifully now. All the rough edges in previous bottles are gone. High pitched red berry fruit with a touch of violet on the backend.

    March 6, 2018 - Upon initial opening the aroma is musty and muddled. After a while there is weak crushed mint in the mix. The palate has very dark fruit in good condition. Prunes, juniper berries, and dried dark cherries. Great texture and spicy tannins. Solid wine but would have been more refreshing a few years ago.

    January 18, 2017 - PopnPour, tasted over 2 hrs
    -dark red minimal bricking
    -reticent deep pitched sweet black cherry and trace funk
    -med acidity, med weight perfectly ripe sappy and deep, relatively simple black cherry with a faint stony/mineral streak, ripe med/med- tannins
    -perfect balance and remarkable depth for its level, solidly fantastic without any flashiness drinking perfectly now and expect another at least 3-5 years of fantastic drinking

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.
