    September 17, 2019 - Chevillon study (Chicago, IL): Far better than the Roncières, but this doesn't manage to escape the vintage. Dark-fruited and brooding, with a bit of licorice and unfortunately also a bit of beetroot. Either I've become more and more sensitive to it, or the 2006s haven't been evolving in a good way (probably the former). This has a pretty hefty palate presence, but the flavours are a little jumbled and dirty here as well.

    August 31, 2019 - A bit on the fresh side, and missing a bit of fruit at the core. However, a much better showing than a year ago. Earthy with crushed cherries and a hint of cheese. Persistent. Got great, but very good.

    June 30, 2019 - Basically the same showing as my prior note. Good, but a meaty and robust burgundy that merits more time in the bottle. Try again in 3+ years.

    April 10, 2019 - Mixed WTDS at The Kenwood (The Kenwood, Mpls, MN): Medium red color. PNP, drank a glass over 90 minutes. This was reductive to start, used the copper trick to improve it substantially. Still a little reticent on the nose, earth, minerals, distinct iron, red cherry fruits that are susllen right now. 90+ to 91pts.

    December 29, 2018 - Nice wine that tastes like it should. Meaty and robust, with surprising density of fruit for the vintage. Still quite young and not showing much in terms of secondary development. Very good.
