Community Tasting Notes (4) Avg Score: 90.4 points

  • Intense orange zest, loads of fruit, cherries, strawberries with sous bois. Complex wonderful nose. The palate is high with acidity, some rhubarb, strawberries but what is most striking is the lightness and high acidity. Feels a little unbalanced. Nose 96 p but taste 87 = 90 average

  • Dark kirsch cherries on the fore and on the mid and finish as well. Hate to say but to a certain extent it does remind me of a fruity nz Pinot except maybe less the baby fat confected sweetness. Very much simple and forward and bimbo-ish to an extent.

  • The Premox Taste Test - High Risk White Burgundies and More (Mood Indigo, Jalan Kilang Barat, Singapore): Excellent. One of the few 1er Crus in the midst of a flurry of Grand Crus, yet this was probably the best of the reds. It had a rather reserved nose initially, but then unfolded in gentle waves of black cherries and berries and drifts of violet flowers, with wood spice and dried earth – a beguiling mix of masculine and feminine accents. Lovely stuff. The palate was very classy. It had such a lovely purity to it, with beautifully detailed flavours of dark cherries and berries, earth and melting floral tones. There was a sense of strength and definition to the wine that was almost Grand Cru in quality, along with a pure, transparent, almost ethereal feel that was just beautiful. It was a really complete wine, balanced, structured, with a long finish with rings of spice and dried flowers, a pat of wet earth and a touch of herb. It is still young, still full of energy and primary depth, but this was actually quite open for a top-class 1999 Burgundy. As good as it was now, I think it will be even better in 3-4 years. Bravo.

  • Vosne v Vosne-side Nuits (La Trompette, London): Blind. Dense ruby. Dark fruited, quite spicy. A little broader here, and more upfront - less elegant and focused on the finish. A ripe character to this. ****
