Pop and pour. One btl remaining. This tasted over the hill at first: no nose, tired palate. I didn't pour it down the drain and my father-in-law insisted on tasting it. He said: it isn't flawed, which is true, but it also seemed well past prime at the time.
Nevertheless, after 3 hrs: nose of soft plum, gamebird and cocoa, and the softest touch of VA. On the palate, slightly less compelling, hi-toned black and red fruit with some green notes and a tangy, bright finish. Conclusion: seems solid to good with a fair amount of air! — 8 days ago
👃Perfumed orange florals, peppery lemon & minerals
👅More pretty & less intense than many PYCMs. Palate is medium bodied. Not totally dry
Remaing wine Slow Decanted in my refrigerator
Change in character vs Day 1. The subtle fruit has been shrouded by intense minerality
👅Flinty, smoky minerality with just enough lemon fruit. Nicely salty. Long bold and distinctly dry finish
Quite different on the 2 occasions. It was more delicate and very nice on Day 1 but I preferred the intensity & minerality that had developed by Day 14💕🥂

Superbe encore une fois. À peine réduit, Fruits blancs, poires, un peu de citron aussi. Une bouche fort équilibrée avec une texture irrésistible, acidité bien présente pour balancer une certaine richesse mais sans exces. 92-93
Great once more, nicely balanced, white fruit, some lemon peel, auch great texture and mouthfeel, nice delicious finish. — a day ago
bought on release, given away compared to current pricing, opened tonight. Gorgeous wine from the get go with room to run, super nose of iron, a bit of meat, licorice, dark fruit, all echoed on the palate, dark fruit and plum, hints of smoke, just gorgeous. Silky palate. Wife rarely has more than a glass or so, but tonight kept pace with me the entire bottle, emptied too quickly. 91 reds are a forgotten vintage, far better than considered when released in the shadow of 90. — 10 days ago
About 2 years from my last btl. Another spectacular showing. This has the density and poise of grand cru fruit. On the nose: pure sweet strawberry, cherry, balsam and spice. Clear stylish, well-judged, oak influence. Lovely acidiry and fantastically balanced density and weight. Long finish. This has plenty of upside still. Who says 2013s can't be exciting? — 2 days ago
Initial impressions of green apple, citrus, wet stone and mineral. Same on the palate. Still quite restrained from this excellent white burgundy vintage of 8 years ago. Quite lean for a Premier Cru Meursault and leaner than most good Australian Chardonnays The oak is clearly dialled back to match the power of the fruit in this cooler vintage. A touch of salinity at the finish. — 2 days ago
Nose is dried lilacs.
Palate is soft blackberries. Cassis. Elegant Bramble. Liquid candied lilacs. There is this wood after effect that’s not my jam. Maybe it’ll be better in 5 years but I think I prefer the other cuvées. There is some beauty though.
