  • Earthy tertiary fall leaves blackberryskins, I would drink the 2009’s now

  • Dark fruit, earth, pepper, musk, hints of strawberry. herbs. Damp autumn mist. Bramble and herbs on the palate with enough acidity still. Soft chalky tannins. Lovely soft fading finish. Opened two other bottles of this and found them over the hill.

  • Dinner at Tonny. PnP'ed (blinded). Wonderful bouquet of dark-cherries, tea, bits of forest-floor/autumn-leaves & some spice reminded me of a wine that's just starting to gain some secondary development... but palate seemed to indicate otherwise, with primary flavours of dark/blue-berries, herbs & more spices. Still extremely youthful with a nice tannin-structure holding up the wine. Good depth & concentration & a medium-long finish. Most guessed a Burg at the 1er-cru level. It'll be extremely interesting to see how this develops further with more cellar age.

  • Last bottle - delicious. Obviously aged but no traces of tiredness. Red fruited beauty. Medium long. Drink now but no danger of falling off a cliff. Excellent.

  • A candidate for the most impressive, beautiful, haunting Beaujolais I've ever had. Until you try the right one on its 14th birthday, how would you know? This largely "natural" wine made with ambient yeasts and very low sulfur-the label says drink soon after uncorking- was way ahead of its time.

    The color is a pretty translucent plum lightening toward the rim. No bubble gum on the nose! Beautiful, somber, bosky aromas remind you more of Burgundy than anything. Dark red fruits and sous bois with perhaps a touch of VA. Certainly mature on the palate, unspooling with fading dark fruit flavors, wet autumn leaves, a hint of mint and stone, gentle almost absent tannins, and dare I say it, a suggestion of dusty Cote de Nuits spice toward the finish.

    If you don't like old Burgundy you won't like this, but it's pretty special if you do and are able to put it into context. I don't really have the knowledge to back it up, but a wine like this would have to be considered a forefather of the natural wine movement that IMO few of its progeny are likely to rival. When the winemaker says drink it up (in 2009) I better respect him in 2023. Another glass please before it goes. It somehow conveys a bit of sadness at the inevitable passage of time, like Hopkins' goldengrove unleaving.
