Been 5 years! What a wine. Sickness. Floral. Confectionary cherries. Spice. So complex and expressive. Smells like a hint of spun sugar. The carnival is coming to Pommard! Palate is so silky and velvety with superb finesse and elegance. Terrific bright cherry fruit. Deep, ethereal and complex. Spherical. So long. This is elite! — 9 days ago
Quintessential Beaune. Quite young, but already showing some soft edges. Cherry notes combine with cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg. This is not for the long haul, but is presenting well right now. Finishes dry, so in my mind, this requires food - Nougatine at Jean Georges. — 3 days ago
Dark fruit, black cherries, some spices and a floral hint. A vivid acidity with generous fruit, and very manageable tannins, nice but will benefit of time in the cellar. 90-91
Du fruit noir, cerises entre autres, épicé et avec une touche florale. Une acidité appuyée en bouche, ce fruit généreux et des tannins fort approchables mais va bénéficier de quelques années en cave. 90-91

Nose has chalky plum, dark chocolate bar, black cherry, vine smoke, blackberry and wet earth.
Palate has ripe blackberry, black currant, dried strawberry, clove with smooth tannins and a long finish.
I've always adored the Beaune reds (and whites) as beinging somewhat more weighty than most other Burgundy villages, and this bottle is no slouch! Slow oxidation for 2H then decanted 3H, still evolving in our glasses.
Pre-birthday dinner for our dear COVID bubble friend; we've only allowed one of our close friends into the house for almost the past year, tonight we're celebrating that he's one year older than me. 😉 — 16 days ago
