    November 6, 2021 - What an extraordinary treat to have this wine alongside the 2006 Mugnier Musigny over the course of a long and delicious dinner with friends. When this wine was first poured the nose was more dark-fruited than the Mugnier. But also more polished. Early impressions were that the Mugnier seemed a more masculine wine, while this L-B straddled the line showing some masculine elements but also some feminine charm and polish. While this wine has plenty of structure, it seemed more approachable than the Mugnier (though the Mugnier did show as overly structured at times). Lovely integration on this. High quality oak is present but not heavy-handed at all. Leaning a little darker fruited on the palate when contrasted with the Mugnier. Rich wine! Later pours came out of the bottle with what seemed to be a bit of reduction on the nose, but a good swirl and a bit of time in the glass caused that to blow off. A fantastic and top quality Grand Cru that has many years of pleasure left to give (and should improve for at least 10 more years), but was quite enjoyable on this night in a more youthful way at age 15.

    June 12, 2019 - Five winos excellent adventure , mostly in Burgundy; 6/7/2019-6/15/2019 (Beaune, France): The last bottle from two years ago was off…. Not this time! Absolutely gorgeous nose displaying pure black fruit, blackberry, black cherry, lactic, black truffle, rose, Vosne spice and limestone. Perfectly harmonious and balanced palate, very finely layered pure black fruit, sensual and fluid, perfect amount of acidity and mineral, and a seamless long black fruit driven finish. I am not a big fan of the 06 vintage but this is drinking incredibly well.

    February 1, 2019 - Moderate weight, somewhat muddled palate. Clearly needs more time, will get better, but unclear how far it will evolve. 93+
