    January 8, 2017 - Three Kings Day Celebration in Memory of Patrick Fegan (Chevalier Fine Wines - Chicago IL): Very ripe black fruit with excellent concentration. Lots of spice, slightly more meaty than typical Vosne 1er, but very alluring nonetheless. Persistent and long finish. Very impressive for the vintage. Thanks for sharing, Cory.

    March 10, 2015 - The 2003 Emmanuel Rouget Vosne-Romanee ‘Cros Parantoux’ 1er Cru was dark in colour and a big ripe wine. It smelt of jube like fruit and purple flowers. In the mouth it tasted of dark plums and was quite sweet and fleshy. It had some cold tea like tannins to the finish. It is a good 2003 but certainly a wine marked by the vintage.

    July 13, 2014 - Extremely big and ripe on the nose and palate. Dense red and dark fruit. Spice came out over a couple hours. Super ripe. Very 2003. I expect this will improve, but the ripeness makes me wonder where it will go.

    June 3, 2014 - Champagne RL Blanc de Blanc : Light toasted, vibrant, very beautiful indeed.
    Champagne Henri Giraud Rose NV : This is good stuff, beautiful at the beginning and tight after 3 hours.

    2003 DRC " Grand Echezeaux " Good from the start and after 2 hours, it's stunning, full-bodied, great balance, delicious with impact aftertaste. 95-96/100

    2003 Leroy " NSG Boudots " My first bottle of 2003 Leroy (bottle No. 0009/1970) and it's different. For good vintages, Leroy seems to let the nature speaking and show the true terroir. Hints of flowers, almost no sign of Leroy's typical smell that reminds me of 2002 Boudots.
    The texture is dense and full of structure with an aggressive aftertaste in a good way. Longer to be finished than DRC ?? 95/100

    2003 Rouget " Cros Parantoux " My 2nd bottle and much better than the last time. Vosne-spice at the beginning then becomes fresh and clean, beautiful scents blended into one. This is like the truth and classic.
    The vineyard is high on the slope next from Richebourg so the vibrant is here. With the close-knit texture, wonderful balance, very special feeling drinking this wine. The aftertaste is linger and long. 93+/100 (My WOTN)

    2003 Bouchard " La Romanee " As I expected, even my first time from Bouchard but I already know the style of the producer.
    Bouchard produces all the wines to express the terroir and vintage. The wine-maker is just doing his job, making the wine, showing how the wine should be, very classic style.
    Hints of old barrique, dark fruits and lower acidity that is the true character of the 2003 vintage. Full-bodied and delicious in a proper way. Very good finish is telling me 2003 is one of a great year. 94/100

    May 17, 2014 - HDH Auction Notes (Tru - Chicago, IL): I had this on a pop and pour. It had that powerful, dense edge to it with a bit more plum, but still a lot of class/elegance and red fruit. Wasn't able to try any of this later in the afternoon, but I would wager that it will be quite nice with age. No score from me at this time.
