This new offering from Turley is a total sledgehammer. Full bodied with ripe, boozy raspberry and spice flavors giving way to a plummy finish. Tremendous — 4 months ago
Pomegranate opener, then alarm bells, then capiscum, soil, and a sledgehammer finish - cascade of velvet. — 4 years ago
Citrus flower on the. Jose. Intense citrus. Such great acidic balance. Wonderful. So clean and fresh. Not a sledgehammer auslese Great because of the balance but not obvious weight.

Small producer making some excellent wines. Only $58 so quite on the low side these days for village puligny.
Very good on pop and pour.
Nose is gorgeous. Seashells. Some flowers. Very mineral. Intensely aromatic.
Palate has good richness. Very good. Mineral spine. On the dense side but by no means a sledgehammer. Really delicious. Sweet fruit. Very good amplitude. Almost a hint of peach.
Long lovely nicely fruited finish.

Wow. Can’t decide if this is plain dark or totally evil. Nose is dense blackberry and licorice flower. Almost sagrantinoey But it has a lovely sweetness. Palate is dark fruits. A bit of licorice. Mineral. Almost a hint of spicy mineral with a pleasant balancing hint of bitterness. The wine is on the sledgehammer side a bit so you have to be prepared for that. There is some brightness but it’s more In the background. As it opens some lovely licorice flower on the finish. Slightly pleasantly grippy texture. Not typical bojo gamay. But this has a place in a cellar. It’s a great example of what it is. Perhaps the only example of what it is. — 4 years ago
3 hour Audoze followed by a 2 hour decant and poured back in the bottle for dinner. This was extraordinary! Every bit as impressive as the ‘01 and ‘02. Robust blackberries, graphite, a smooth yet substantial mouthfeel and a sensational lingering finish. I recall reading a review of the Shafer HSS that descried the wine as “an elegant sledgehammer”....a perfectly succinct and apt description — 5 years ago
Nose is tropical flowers. A hint of honey. An hour in more dense. The most elegant honey. Not unctuous at all.
Palate is quite mineral. Fresh . Not unctuous more precise. Like really mineral water flavored with tropical essence. Not obnoxious. Very very elegant.
The great thing about this is that it has very elegant richness and integrated minerality. It’s not a sledgehammer. No obvious wood after 15 minutes.
Needs an hour for density to present itself. Then it’s amazing.
