  • Haven't had one of these halves for a while and Heidi blinded me on one last night. It has strong, chewy structure and excellent depth of fruit. It is ripe with black cherry fruit and a suggestion of dried fig. The vintage's perfume develops in the glass and whilst it is very good it is behaving like a Melbourne Cup hose crying out for more distance in the Caulfield Cup. I shall leave my remaining bottles alone for a while and hope that Heidi doesn't use them for options wines on me.

  • Quality Chop House (Quality Chop House): Blind. Despite having drunk this six weeks ago, I don't recognise this. Pretty similar note though. Tight, dark red fruited. A good dose of dry extract. Chewy. Quite long and promising. Needs five to ten years. ****

  • Blind. Same wine as previous apparently. Lots of dry extract and tannin in the finish. Deep mid garnet. 1999? Fruit is quite bright and dense but very much in the minerally red spectrum. Beaune? No IDE what though. Densely red-fruited. Ok with food but really needs another five to ten years. **(**)

  • All blood and guts. Wonderful stench on the nose, significant but fine tannins and dark fruit. Everyone who tasted this blind thought it was a Barolo... Good but not what you'd expect from a Burgumdy.

  • Nice that a Beaune even from a great vintage can hold up nicely after 14 years. Not worth the $125 price tag of course, but nonetheless very enjoyable now. Do not hold further! A very constant viscous ( for Pinot ) wrapping around the tongue but only with hints of defined fruits emerging from a sophisticated but not varied overlay of warm sauce of medium to dark fruits. Undoubtedly more bright fruit in its youth . Very nicely made but I would opt for a nice 2010 Savigny or an older Vosne.

    (Drouhin Joseph Beaune Clos des Mouches) Deep cherry red. A nose of spicy black fruit and already a little secondary development, some undergrowth too. Sweet with impressive concentration of spicy fruit and superbly covered velvetty tannins - very long and creamy too. Personally I'd prefer a little less spicyness, but this is a very, very good wine.
