Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 30, 2020 - Uncorked 2 hours prior to serving into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Fruit” day): Pale ruby to the eyes.

    More red berry fruits here. Animale notes.

    Very refined on the palate. Silky tannins.

    Surprising more like a decade’s difference on flavour profile compared to the 2002 which is amazingly primary. More 94 points to me but clearly still quite a long way from maturity.

    5 hours upon opening: Again the fruits are much superior, arguably at a different league compared to other wines tasted tonight. More berry fruits that is ultra detailed, smoke, tar and roses here. Hints of herbal, and vegetal notes like celery too. Really nice wine here and above the rest tasted. 94 points solid.

    November 10, 2017 - Estremamente minerale e balsamico, incredibile pulizia e gestione dell' estrazione e del tannino. Mostro tridimensionale di persistenza e potenza senza peso. Ricorda i grandi Chambertin di Dugat-py.
    Monumento dell' enologia mondiale.

    June 23, 2017 - Trattoria popolare. Oslo

    App: medium brick-red, slightly cloudy with sediment
    Aroma: dried fruit, rose leaves, licorice, tar, leather
    Medium-bodied with very good acidity and firm tannins. Well balanced and concentrated.
    Great length with some sweetness in the finish. (93)

    Not decanted. At peak, or just past. Drink up!

    September 22, 2014 - 1,5 L.

    Kompleks og dyp nese. Svært animalsk med lær, tobakk, sopp og røyk som fremtredende aromaer. Sinnsyk konsentrasjon, men allikevel sval. Nydelig mineralitet. Intens fruktighet, mørk rålakris og svart tjære. Perfekt balansert. Tanniner og syre er høyst tilstede, men pent integrert. Livlig, ungdommelig, men allikevel utviklet. Ekstrem lengde.
