    October 15, 2017 - Bt breathed an hour, high tone nose of red and blue fruits in a garnet hue, almost pungent spices too. Ample balance of sweetness and fruit acid on palate, good level of extracts but tannin is slightly bitter luckily not enuf to disturb a very fine RSV. Long finish with hawthorn and tea leaves, despite its color, more cellaring is perhaps needed.

    April 5, 2017 - Quite nice, but a bit brooding and angular relative to the 2000, 2002, 2005, and 2007 served alongside. I generally feel this property is producing even tastier wines in more recent vintages.

    September 14, 2015 - Vosne-Romanee Grand Crus for Michael and Peter's Birthdays 2015 (Gattopardo Restaurant, Tras Street, Singapore): I was very taken by this wine when I first had it some one-and-a-half-years ago. It did not show quite as well this time round (perhaps because it was slightly overshadowed by a great Richebourg from the same vintage on its flight), but this was still a smashing bottle of wine. One whiff and I just knew we were in RSV territory here - it had that floaty, seductive, perfumy bouquet that only RSV from amongst the Vosne Grand Crus can deliver, with ripe red cherries and orange peel aromas, smoked bacon and sweet floral accents, all flushed with wafts of fragrant wood spice. Beautiful. The palate was a perfect echo of the nose, with a touch of that savoury smoked bacon drifting through delicious flavours of sweet red cherries and perfumy flowers that had a wonderfully transparent clarity to them. On the midpalate, the fruit was met by a warm embrace of high-toned spice and little drifts of smokiness, all draped around soft, silky tannins and wonderfully integrated acidity - this is a wine that is just starting to resolve completely, and boy it was delicious to drink. Great finish too, with a nice, warm spiciness and more of those seductive floral accents gliding away in a wonderfully elegant, silky mouthful. A lovely wine in every way, there is no reason to wait on these any longer.

    April 30, 2014 - 1998 Burgundy Grand Cru Dinner (Cheng Hu Tien, Keong Saik Road, Singapore): Gorgeous. This was one of my very favourite wines on the night. It was everything you would want in an RSV – floral seductiveness, fragrant Vosne spice, Grand Cru weight, all tied together with great elegance. It had a glorious nose, just wafting out of the glass in waves of sweet spice and dried flowers, blackberries and black cherries, a backdrop of savoury meat and earth. Wow. This was sensual and seductive – a nose that really drew you in. Beautiful on the palate too. Soft and silky, it showed beautifully detailed flavours of dark cherries and blackberries seasoned with spice and brambly herbs and dried flowers. Lovely, sensual and complex, yet subtle wine, gentle, almost understated for all its fullness in the mouth. It had depth without weight, length without effort, gliding into graceful finish, full of fragrant spice and sweet, seductive dark fruit and florals. An absolutely gorgeous wine, drinking beautifully on the night.

    March 15, 2014 - Dinner with the Browns (Florida): In line with previous bottles. Rich, detailed iron and dark fruit. Nice spice. Bright. Will last a long time so I need to save the rest of this case!
