    January 10, 2013 - A little disappointed upon opening. Beautiful Earthy, barnyard nose with nice mineral/graphite notes. A bit of a let down on the palate with a light body, muted fruit tones and not matching the minerality on nose. After an hour in decanter this wine grew teeth to match the nose. The tart cherry and berry came out, it gained some weight on the palate and started drinking more like I would expect from a good Burgundy with a few years of age. Definitely let this open up for at least an hour before drinking.

    April 25, 2012 - Very pleasant wine. A full bodied Burgundy enjoyable to the last drop. Still got the magnum for later. Recommended, drink ik now (2012).

    (Bouchard Père et Fils Aloxe-Corton) Medium, medium-plus cherry-red colour. The nose starts very red, ripe and forward, slowly becoming more interesting - coffee and cinnamon edged. Fresh and sweet, the wine expands in the mouth - nicely lingering flavours. The tannin is very well covered. A very successful and super value wine - heartily recommended.
