Community Tasting Notes (21) Median Score: 92 points

  • More of an intellectual wine than hedonist. Mineral, on the austere side despite the presence of the fruit. Raspberry, brambly, earthy. Some rustic tannins.
    I liked it a lot but this definitely needs food to go along.

  • These wines seldom disappoint ! It has a cherry red colour with some pink-brown at the edges. The nose is lovely compote of red cherry, redcurrant, wild strawberry, limestone and hedgerow. The palate has a lovely poise between the red fruits and limestone /mineral elements and a touch of spice on the finish. The wine remains in a lovely plateau phase after years of dormancy like many 96s. Delicious.

  • Dinner at ITSPD (Imperial Treasure Super Peking Duck, Paragon): A nice wine - very enjoyable without quite hitting the heights. It had a beautiful nose of wild flowers, earth and summer berries along with more spicy, meaty notes, like a melange of hoi sin sauce, black pepper pork and balsam wood aromas. The palate had quite backbone to it, never feeling stern, but quite linear and very defined, with high acidity running through bright flavours of red summer fruits that seemed at points as if they were just starting to blossom into a juicy openness. Decent finish too, with flashes of spice and balsam wood at the end. A nice wine, still tight, but showing a good clarity and balance. This will get better over the next few years as well.

  • Deep rusty. A very mineralic style of Chambolle, with plenty of undergrowth, earth and dark, yet fine-tuned spiciness offering up notes of clove, cinnamon and soy. The fruit is seamlessly integrated into the whole, mostly reminiscent of cherries and plums, but nothing sticking out. Smooth, finely laced and long on the palate, still with loads of fruit and life, and some tannic bite aswell. Terrific!

  • Still has the strong minerally line of the vintage but is really aromatically expressive. It smells of meat, iron, violets, rose petals and black earth. It is sweet and vinous with loads of savoury nuance. Despite the wines highly perfumed nature it is a muscular wine with more to give.
