Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 8, 2014 - Ageing piercing fruit, quite tart, but still robust. A jumble of fruits rather than complexity. Drink soon with food. Needs an hour or two to open up

    June 13, 2011 - scented fruit and woods, piercing fruit - strong acidity balanced by complex fruit, only just secondary. very good

    March 12, 2011 - Needs to develop for an hour. Light nose, scented with red fruit and black cherries, very elegant and a bit intoxicating. Light juicy red mouth, lovely fresh acidity, quiet sweet mouth, very smooth, some length. Really beautiful, just lacks the weight of a grander vineyard. Drink now.

    March 25, 2010 - Down to my last few of this. Previous bottles have been very light and a little lacking in depth, but have always shown the most wonderful purity of fresh perfect raspberry. The tannins have also been very fine and have been much akin to the slight tannic feel of a fresh raspberry too. This bottle showed a little more savoury quality but less of the fruit and the tannins seem to be a little more prominent and less buffered by fruit. Could it be closing down? or has it had it's day given the relative lack of structure? Only time will tell. I'll be keeping a couple back to see what happens, but certainly buying a fresh case of this now would seem to represent a bit of a gamble.

    January 9, 2008 - Though "just" a Bourgogne, I think this may not yet be ready. Muted on the nose, with a bit of cherry and earth. A little more forward on the palate, but still shy on fruit and the tannis are just slightly coarse. All this said, it's a fairly sophisticated, subtle wine, with a nice texture. But--call me shallow--I need a little more flash/surface appeal and this is just too short on depth and length.

    (Barthod Ghislaine Bourgogne Rouge) A little deeper, medium ruby-red versus the Leroy, with a nose that is denser but at the same time less pretty - darker fruit that today is less successfully delineated. In the mouth there is also a little more density and certainly an extra dimension of flavour in the mid-palate. There is more ‘material’ in the glass and more secondary development than the Leroy, this wine had a significant advantage in purchase price too - it’s a really good regional wine - yet I would certainly go for the Leroy in preference today.

    (Barthod Ghislaine Bourgogne Rouge) Medium, medium-plus cherry red - holding its colour very well. The nose is a little tight; mainly glossy red cherry, but not very expressive. The palate is reserved yet quite sophisticated. Good acidity, some fat, a little grain to the tannin and very good concentration in the mid-palate. A wine that is currently hiding much of its wares but is clearly a very 'above average' bourgogne.

    (Barthod Ghislaine Bourgogne Rouge) Medium, medium-plus cherry red. The cherry infused nose is fresh and forwardly fruity. Nice concentration and very good acidity. The tannins are still a little showy and astringent but manage not to dominate the pretty fruit. A serious bourgogne that needs another 2+ years in the cellar.

    (Barthod Ghislaine Bourgogne Rouge) Lovely medium density cherry red colour. The nose is deep showing red and black cherry notes, even a little raspberry and earth too. The palate shows good concentration and, perhaps, a more red fruity palate. Good acidity and sophisticated tannins. Shows good length too. Excellent Bourgogne Rouge
