a fabulous bottle—all that it should be—steely tightly wound grand cru white wine from Corton Charlemagne. Huge upside yet, so young, wine will last decades. It’s got it all—fruit and structure, great acidity. Still a bit lean and needs to fill out, but a great bottle. — 12 days ago
From the great Henri Bonneau, along with Château Rayas, the master of CDP. (He and Jacques Reynaud were actually dear friends). It’s insanely expressive and its ultra intense aromatics leap from the glass.
The complex bouquet is layered with rich black and red fruit, leather saddle, wilted violets and savory herbs. It just floats on the palate with its supreme elegance, caressing texture and weightless intensity. So Burgundian in that sense. The finish is so long, lifted and intense, leaving you craving another sip when its flavors finally do dissipate. 04 Célestins is a total knockout. — a month ago
Выпито 17.01.21 в той же компании. Самый старый зинфандель - 2007 год, выпитый мной. Куплен в Вильнюсе у Арунаса. Достаточно крепкое 14,1%, чувствуются дубовые танины. Очень необычное. — 6 months ago
Extremely distinctive CDP. Very finessed and elegant. Reminds me of Henri Bonneau. Still needs some time though so if drinking now decanting would be strongly recommended. — a year ago
Wow. After 30-45 minutes open it started to open itself up and revealed an incredibly complex wine. Smells like Provence (herbs and a. It floral). Beautiful fruit and dizzying aftertaste of subtle flavors I can’t begin to identify and describe. A keeper. — 3 years ago

Dinner with a friend, brief notes this evening.
OMG Brouilly, you are so GREAT! Brambly raspberry, wet soil, ripe black cherry, very deep on the palate, nice!
48 Hour Update:
Nose has muddy raspberry, black cherry mash, faint baking spice, hardwood charcoal and (minor) menthol/mint notes.
Palate has blackberry, dehydrated cherry, young black currant with its earthy sweetness, touch of sweet acidity on the medium finish. Yum. — a year ago
