There was some typical Barthod earthiness at first, but that faded behind the more perfumed notes with time. The body was clearly on the thinner side, but there was a nice round juiciness to it, with a pure crunch of fresh cherries seasoned with spice and a kiss of florals. Simple, but delicious - just want you want from a Bourgogne of its age.

    February 6, 2017 - an easy drinking wine but lacks vibrancy - may have left it too long?

    Not very expressive, cherries, later turns to tobacco notes, old leather. Already on day two it showed signs of tiredness and went on oxidating slowly.
    On the palate it is light and fresh and very pleasant to drink. Tannins are still present and a little rustic. At times it feels as if the fruit was not completely ripe.
    Overall quite enjoyable, but doesn't have much resistance to air.

    October 27, 2012 - Once again, consistent with previous note. Pure cherries, some hints of game and a light mineral tone. Acidity is great, however the fruit is really not there to make the great balance. With food however, it is fine.

    Could perhaps take a few more years in the cellar, but I cannot see the big reason for doing so. The concentration is really not there to make up for the already lingering acidity being present. It should be underlined, that for this level of Burgundy it is a great bottle of wine.
