  • Significantly riper nose than the '10 or '08. Vosne spice, cherry fruit, and florals on the nose. Sappy and dense with more spice, red pinot fruit bordering at times on preserves, hard candy, and deft wood spice on the palate. It's round, fleshy yet silky in texture, perfumed and fruity, but still manages to hold itself together. This does for me border on overripe. It steps right up to the line and then stops. Baroque and deep, yet with grace and good balance for it's size, with more stuffing than most village wines. Finishes firm yet broad, and interesting contrast. I like this quite a bit, but would much prefer to drink the '10 any day. I can say that for most red Burgs though.

  • It has been a while since I opened a bottle of this. Still dark ruby in color, hardly any development. Flowers, spices and dark soils on the nose, pretty good. Sweet tannins. Lush and ripe fruits, typical of the vintage but there is enough acidity to counter that. Slight warmth at finish. Excellent length and depth for a village. Drinking well now. This vintage could go on for years. Maintains excellent balance on the 2nd day, showing even more spices.

  • An absolute picture of elegance. Beautifully lifted, perfumey nose of crushed berries, baking spices, and violets. On the palate, it has plenty of the characteristic 2009 ripe fruit, but there's perfect restraint with nice cool, mineral tones and a silky texture that's irresistible. Can't remember having had a village wine this good in a long time.

  • PNP into Zalto Burgundy glass (“Fruit” day): Bright pale ruby to the eyes.

    Elegant and relatively ripe wild red berry and cherry fruits. Fresh herbs and sweet spices. Ethereal and deep nose.

    As always from this estate across vintages I have tasted, the acidity backbone really shows and carries the wine well across time. Good minerality that keeps it fresh and enjoyable. Not extremely complex but this is simply a well executed effort.

    93 points at this stage with potential for at least another point in 5-10 years time.

    12 hours upon uncorking (“Root” day): Still going strong with more mature fruits and integration. A little less complexity but enjoyable. Retain at 93 points.
