    June 28, 2019 - 2017 Cru Beaujolais with a Few Slightly Older Wines: Ruby center with lightening. Round for the varietal, great fruit/soil balance with a chocolatey richness. None of the 2009 excess. Sappy and Burgundian. Splendid with many more years in hand.

    June 23, 2019 - Glad to still have a magnum of this left, will have to revisit in 10+ years. Does not show the 09 vintage as much as you'd think. Lots of iron/blood on day one, day two shows a touch of astringency and violets.

    May 2, 2019 - I finally took the effort to shuffle several bottles in the Eurocave to allow access to my small cache of this '09 Beaujolais. Some respected reviewers have indicated this may have lost some of its youthful sparkle in its mid-age. Speaking on the bottle in front of me, I get the essence of what I remember of the wine in its youth with greater depth, complexity and with silkafied edges. There is a fine intensity to the bouquet that calls to mind bitter, intense insect blood, molten tar, black raspberry, and floral vegetation. Underlying all of that is a core of iron minerals. One envisions a bloody field of battle from the iron age, or a scene from the Gladiator motion picture fought atop a raspberry and loganberry brier patch. This all transitions to the maturing fruit-full palate with grace and ease. To my mind, this wine has been set in an opaque, irony stone and has not much changed through the years, save that the stone has been polished over time, revealing a bit more of the gem held within it. If this wine traded some of its raw strength, fruit and stony intensity for a measure more transparency, it would rank among one or two peers at the very top of the totem or hill. As it is, for my palate it's a micro-notch below the one or two best, but who knows what more time will reveal. This certainly has the stuffing and structure to tolerate many more years of polishing without fear of internal dimming.

    January 26, 2019 - My first taste of this since the time of release, and it hasn't aged much. It's not that it tastes the same but it still tastes like a wine that's fresh out of the gate, with that crunchy gamay fruit and juicy thirst-quenching factor, finishing with some crushed rock on the back end. Maybe it's a little more angular and a less silky than it was, as though it shed a little '09 flesh but the fruit at the core stayed in suspended animation. This has more of what I think of as a 2010 vintage profile than 2009.
