  • Not much different than the last couple bottles.

    Another bottle with a bretty start. After a couple hours in a decanter, the brett blew off and it opened up with lovely dark fruit, earth, rose petal, and savory herbal notes. Mid weighted, supple and sappy on the palate with a pretty core of red and dark pinot fruit, more earthy and ferrous notes, and floral perfume. It's a subtle, finessed wine with fine tannins and a softness to its texture. A lovely, sappy, understated wine. Again coming across as a NSG with it's heart in Chambolle. At peak with plenty of time in hand. Pretty delicious with morels, leeks, and fresh peas over tajarin. 91

  • Sometimes you encounter someone and fall in love with her/his elegance, inner purity, of his/her soul's modesty and depth.
    As you speak to her/him you only discover that you are being lifted to an enchanting state and feel very closely drawn to the conversation and its flow.
    Well, this bottle was so close to my description above;
    Upon opening its scent, its aroma was so attractive, so uplifting that we only could emit an expressive noise and being nearly knocked 'up' to another sphere of expectations. So poetic, so refined, yet focused and yet profound. The nose of red flowers, red fruits just starting to enter its second phase can't be described with words, not even nearly. To get a sense of what it had offered on the aromatic profile, one simply has to have had the privilege of having a good glass in the hands, so magical it was...
    On the palate, it is so pure, and simply gorgeous. The texture is like of freshest streaming water, the flavors of red fruits are translating its past 13 years with poetry of precise words, nuances of shades and literally making you feel this wine has its own vocabularies of intelligent and graceful expressions to tell its story in seamless flow. So well balanced between the terroir, fruits, and the (moderate)vintage and yet by adhering to 2007 as naturally as possible, it provides an extraordinary moment of time travel. As I am writing this the next morning, my spirit is still being lifted up, as if dreaming of our world in such perfect harmony. Its modest vintage has in fact made an elegant, most attractive and suave Clos de la Maréchale. All that much poetry, nuances of flavors were indeed in an exquisite balance with each other's elements; as if listening to a memorable Schubert Lied, by a singer who understands both the poetry and its musical flow. Cheers,

  • Seventh bottle from a full case purchased in 2011. High time to revisit this after 18 months. Lively and quite structured, fresh and minerally, clear and transparent style, firm tannic grip, crushed red berries and forest floor, light but long finish with a hint of gunpowder tea. Fully mature but drinking well now and over the next two years.

  • Pnp, crimson in color, nose of wild red berries, elegant oak spice. Light on palate, but with ample substance, commendable for 2007, like the Musigny Amoureuses tried in the past, it's all about balance and elegance than power. Finish showed sign of hawthorne. Lovely effort.

  • 5/12, vg cork.
    Medium garnet core, pale garnet rim. Nose is moderately intense, developed, showing plum, bilberry, forest floor, soil. Medium bodied, darkish fruit, forest floor, elegant with gentle tannins, touch of liquorice, moderate acidity, good length harmonious finish. Quietly spoken but articulate and now showing a bit more Nuits St Georges character.
