    May 19, 2012 - This took such a long time to open but even when it did, it didn't do anything for me. This has to give more and I thought that the acids were too harsh. Not a terribly balanced wine.

    September 30, 2011 - Excellent bourgogne showing the structure and extra dimension that makes 2005 special. Drink now with some air or hold and enjoy down the road.

    February 7, 2011 - Classic red burgh ... some earthy funk on the nose, tart red cherry/cranberry n the palate. Vibrant acid. Can hold or drink.

    July 31, 2010 - Good to drink already now. Compared to the 2002 vintage, much more structured and also less fruity, which gives it a much more balanced drink. But I guess he has been at it for three more years now and his access to great grapes probably increased as well(but that is a mere guess)

    March 19, 2010 - I've had this a handful of times, and I think I probably liked it better a year ago or so, when it showed a tad more vibrancy. Nevertheless, a good bourgogne with saucy cherry fruit on the nose and palate.
