Limpid, clean, pure, and so delicate. A near perfect aperitif. — 17 days ago
Wished it wasn't corked, but still typical Burgundy must of stems, graphite, crisp free fruits. Worth buying younger vintages to retaste. — 17 days ago
Lemon curd and that distinct white Bordeaux nose of old car/machine oil which I tend to associate with Seville. Some might call it flinty or nutty. A little sharp and thin texturaly, maybe better with warmer weather and sunshine. — 15 days ago
Excellent expression of Burgundy. Deep cherry, graphite, minty aromas and a very fine texture. Fairly earthy — 22 days ago
From my cella, bought close to release. Not uber complex, but fairly classic, floral, tar, aromatics and a very adult, black tea like tannic structure. Penetrating and persistent. Rocked it with pan roasted squab.
Could take more time in terms of structure, but probably not improving in aromatic complexity. — 16 days ago
