    July 4, 2017 - A bit more parched than the last bottle we opened two months ago--just bottle variation, I suppose.

    May 18, 2017 - Been drinking too much young wine of recent and too little from my meager Burgundy stash, as proved by my first whiff of tonight's glass of this. "This is why we age wine," I solemnly said to my husband. Everything we love about Burgundian pinot noir was instantly apparent: pale taupe-ruby color, leathery nose, pute notes of cranberry, cherry, rhubarb and celery--it was everything I hoped for when I grabbed this bottle.

    March 16, 2017 - Had this at my father-in-law's last night. I have the 2005 vintage which I have not yet started. Pale ruby. Cherry bouquet with some floral aromatics and sweetness. Lively attack evolving quickly to a light bodied but wide mid-palate with cherry, raspberries, violets and graphite minerality all present. Tannins and oak very well integrated. Medium final.

    This was lovely. A beginning, middle and end with poise, balance and interest all very much present.

    February 17, 2017 - Not decanted, but poured out in the glass about 20 min before sampling. Good colour, medium-full, could be mistaken for a younger wine. Complex and attractive nose - good weight of fruit but also the secondary elements such as confit/stewed fruit, underbrush, subtle spice ... and a savoury, almost meaty, note (almost Burgundy's answer to the Graves!). But mostly it's still about the purity of the integrated fruit and subtle spice combo. Lovely on the palate: rich, velvety tannins, supple and flavoursome, and supported by correct acidity. Very rich and long on the finish, with a flourish of minerality. Very good plus, on its own or with food. I was lucky to pick this up some years ago for about €30. More recent vintages now seem to be offered at closer to €50-€55.

    August 28, 2016 - Light red with signs of maturity. This is all dust and faded red fruits on the nose. Light weight, resounding soil, decayed red fruit, plum skin, and a squeeze of citrus. At first I thought it was going to be soft with underlying clay richness, but after an hour or so, the acidity appeared in a Savigny sort of way without being quite as brambly or brusque. This has matured beautifully over the past few years and has lovely balance and poise; I suppose it could go on for another couple of years and resolve itself even a tad more, but beyond that, I wonder if the strong terroir will overtake the increasingly fragile fruit.
