    June 14, 2019 - 1/3, very good cork.
    Medium garnet core, pale garnet rim. Nose is quite developed - showing plenty of soil, some mushroom and underlying bilberry and plum fruit. Medium bodied, soil, liquorice, blue/purple fruits, fine but still quite firm tannins, fresh acidity, good length slightly drying finish. Decent.

    January 27, 2018 - While i had a good hour decant, this proved insufficient at best. Clearly didn't show itself for 3 hrs in. Until then very little body, just violet like tea with bits of blackberry. Finally this thicken and showed decent yet light bodied. Normally a red fruit person but this was pretty good at the end. Acting like most '05's I think

    December 21, 2016 - Really rounding into a good spot. Much more open as compared to my first bottle about a year ago. Ready to go after an hour decant. Black raspberries and a granitic/mineral edge to the nose. Very slight raisined quaility to the fruit on the palate, but that is quickly subsumed in waves of ripe raspberries and plums. The fruit has richness and depth along with a pleasing tartness. Silky mouthfeel with long finish. Great match with chicken fessenjan (chicken with walnuts and pomegranate molasses).

    February 6, 2014 - This wine has significantly improved over the last 4 years. It is now much more expressive, with softer, silky tannin and a core of fruit shining through the center. Elegant and beautiful drinking wine, and a great QPR. Should only improve and shine for another 12-15 years.

    September 13, 2012 - Originally this had a green asparagus, poopy aroma with some spice, but after a few hours that's totally gone. Now it's really quite pretty; some floral notes, lots of gravel, licorice, spice, minerals... very lithe, seamless and pretty. Smells like a rock quarry with fruit slathered on it. The nose really became gorgeous. The palate is a bit more closed down; there's some high tones here but it's quite tight. The finish dials up with a big wallop of acid and shows some tannins. Nice balance, with good structure and complete throughout. Just feels so tight and young. The nose is really where this wine shows it's potential, and expresses the enjoyment today, as elsewhere it's just too tight. This won't be a complete wine for 10 years, but surely will be a few points higher then. 91+

    (LAVIERES Savigny 1er Camus-Bruchon) 2005 Burgundy Dear Friends, This set of 2005 red Burgundy is flat-out great - period. You can look up the Burghound reviews of the 2006's to get an idea (I don't believe he reviewed the 2005s) or the glowing praise from Claude Kolm, Gilman or others on the 2005 portfolio but all that really matters is what's in the bottle and that puts Camus-Bruchon among the very best of all the 2005's for the tarrif. In a nutshell, wine for wine, this may be the most successful portfolio in 2005 under $50 for every wine - it's that good. Most of the wines are from very old vines - they are pure, lovely and deftly expressive of their place with beautiful backbones and a clear message of minerality and site - they are neither too much nor too little - they jump from their vessel with aromatics and flavors that remind us of why 2005 was so magical in the Cote d'Or. With quality this good comes demand from many nooks of the world and (as a result) this allocation is miniscule - please limit requests to 3/each. This parcel has outstanding provenance - as direct from the source as I could muster: 2005 Camus-Bruchon Savigny-Les-Beaune "Les Pimentiers" Vielles Vignes 80-90 year old vines on clay and chalk - very fine and regal style with perfumed, spice-laden aromatics. Excellent. 2005 Camus-Bruchon Savigny-Les-Beaune "Aux Grands Liards" Vielles Vignes 90-100 year old vines grown in sand on top of bedrock. The opposite of the Pimentiers - muscular and strapping with smoke and earth tones wrapped around a tornado an an inner core - could age for 20 years. 2005 Camus-Bruchon Savigny-Les-Beaune "Les Lavieres" 1er Opposites attract once again - from the north of the Bois de Noel, this is elegance personified... 2005 Camus-Bruchon Savigny-Les-Beaune "Narbontons" 1er ...and from the south of Mont Battois, this is sheer force of will. Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Burg6310 Burg6320 Burg6330 Burg6340
