Community Tasting Notes 4

  • Pancreatitis Likes this wine:

    July 31, 2017 - On opening that unmistakable Ponsot nose of smoke, forest floor, animale, red berries and mineralite. Decanted and subsequently quite closed, tart red berries and mineralite but very prominent acidity.
    Revisited 24 hours later this remains mineral/acid driven, still very young and primary but an incredible depth and breadth of spicy, dark fruited complexity with all sorts of savoury nuances. Wait at least 5+ years.

    November 26, 2016 - A fantastic '08, generally a vintage I've had mediocre success with, but this is really firing and doesn't have the acidic shrill of many other producers this vintage. Nice clean red fruit, some pine and underbrush, and great aromatics. This is an excellent red Burgundy that will continue to get better over the next 3-5 years, but I don't see any reason to hold off now. Sad to say I paid 50% of what this costs today only 5 years ago. Sigh

    February 22, 2014 - Deep fruit in tart heaven. Just a lovely and elegant Chambolle.

    December 22, 2013 - Pop 'n decant, followed over 8 hours...definitely early but checking in on these.

    First pour was a bit muted, but it opens up a bit after a couple hours...nose of cranberry, black cherry, subtle baking spices underneath, hints of black tea, wet leaves, yeasty bread, mint, orange peel. Tart acidity could use some food to tame it. Finish grips pretty hard with fine tannins that still need some time to mellow.

    Give these a few more years to come together, and they'll probably drink well for a couple more decades after that. 90+
