  • Får halvannen time på karaffel. Dyp, mørk og krydret nese. Er noe overdådig men seriøst over nesa her. Ganske krevende. Tett og konsentrert i munn. Sødmefull og rik frukt. Veldig god lengde. Opulent stil, trenger nok tid for å komme bedre ut av skallet sitt. Ellers veldig bra village.

  • I confess that whilst I really like Pinot, I have struggled to find Burgundy that has truly excited; it isn't for lack of trying the high end, either. Too often I have found them to be over-extracted, poorly balanced and grossly overpriced. Stay the rage, reader, for I remain committed to the chase and I have had the odd bottle that has kept me in the hunt.

    The colour is surprisingly concentrated - maybe a good sign, but maybe another over-extracted swine of a wine?

    The nose is cinnamon notes, some woody aromas and potent, vibrant red fruit notes - some strawberry perfume but something more potent beneath that - almost a raspberry/red currant reduction - but it isn't reductive. Enticing. This is a village wine not a Cru - should it excite like this?

    The palate is everything I love in this grape - at one level it is massive but at another, it is so light in the mouth. Very impressive concentration and intensity, length of finish also very good, though perhaps not quite as impressive as intensity and concentration. The palate gives flavours as per the nose. The tannins are exemplary - supportive but not assertive and fully ripe.

    I confess that I had fairly low expectations of this wine and maybe it is a case of low expectations leading to an over-reaction when they are exceeded. However, I have to say that for a village level wine, albeit a G-C this is verging on extraordinary. It drinks well now but has everything there to evolve over another 10-15 years, while more storied wines (hopefully) come around. Noting earlier reviews of this wine, I suspect it is now starting to come into its own, but it remains a very youthful 5 year old. Worth hunting out.

  • Plus difficile d'approche que le Marc Roy à l'ouverture, il s'améliore le lendemain. Un vin qui me semble davantage réduit, tendu et tannique que celui de l'autre domaine donc un vin qui tiendra la route en cave sans problème. Note potentielle plus élevée dans quelques années car semble davantage complexe que l'autre.

  • Gevrey-Chambertin 2016: confrontation: Un peu gêné à l'ouverture et prend un peu plus de temps à s'ouvrir que le Trapet. On est ici davantage sur les cerises. Une couleur et un registre un peu plus profonds, avec des tannins modérés et peu d'élevage apparent.

  • Plus léger que ce que je m'attendais avec un jeune Gevrey donc j'ai mal choisi l'accord avec le mets. Encore assez primaire, agréable mais je sais qu'il sera une coche au-dessus de ma note avec un peu de patience.
