    August 17, 2011 - really nice. glad i held on to this for an extra year, very subtle flavors...pine and raspberries on the nose, a bit of mineral and salinity on the palette, and still has some decent grip.

    January 25, 2011 - Cette bouteille montre une bonne fraicheur mais me semble plus mince que les précédentes, moins de gras et d'opulence.

    March 24, 2010 - Really good wine. Surprisingly open. Good depth, with a hint of saltiness. Not quite the depth of the '05's but much more accessable

    February 3, 2010 - Joli nez de petits fruits des champs, bleuets et framboises.
    La bouche est délicate et flatteuse, avec une fraicheur et une texture exemplaires, bonne longueur. Une vivacité et un coté floral évoquant Côte Rôtie! Un vin plus charmeur et au fruit plus croquant que le Morgon VV 2006, possiblement supérieur en tout cas un peu plus abouti à ce stade. Du bonbon, un pur délice! 90 pts

    January 21, 2010 - Nez de griottes et bleuets
    La bouche est franche, belle fraîcheur, le fruit est croquant et pur. Une gourmandise liquide qui se boit toute seule. Finale minérale qui n'a rien de simplette et qui intrigue, bonne longueur. Pas la profondeur du 2005 mais un charme irrésistible en commun. 89 pts

    (Georges Descombes Brouilly Vieilles Vignes) Light medium cherry red color with pale meniscus; nice tart minerally red fruit and pomegranate nose; spicy, peppery, tart red fruit palate with good lime acidity; medium finish 90+ pts.

    (George Descombes Brouilly Vieilles Vignes) Very floral nose with violets and some deep wet earth elements. Very ripe concentrated with sweet tannin. This is showing much better than it has recently stateside. Really dense pure black fruits. Greta acids give this lift and great inner mouth aromas. Brooding Brouilly.
