Not inspiring at this date, incredibly youthful with likely two decades in front. Yet, a solid pair with grilled Steelhead Trout this evening. — 14 hours ago
Le style de la maison est là avec cette minéralité et pierre à fusils, du fruit blanc aussi, intense en bouche mais avec de la finesse, une belle longueur, très très belle réussite. 92-93
Very PYCM in style, gun powder, minerality, salinity, gorgeous white fruit also, intense and with a nice rich texture but the acidity balances it out, very very good. — 13 hours ago
Intense aromas and flavors of mushroom, tobacco leaf, black tea with just a hint of black cherry fruit. Hints of meat, Forrest Floor and leather. All of the tertiary/savory notes come to the forefront and the fruit stays in the background. Lighter in body. Dark garnet color. — 11 days ago
Du fruit rouge à revendre qui se retrouve en bouche aussi, une acidité appuyée avec des tannins qui ont une texture de bouche très approchable, c’est frais, généreux, sérieux et délicieux. 91-92
Gorgeous red fruit on the nose and palate, generous wine with an acidity that is high but brings freshness and such a nice silky texture on the slightly grippy tannins, simply beautiful. — 20 days ago
Deep gold color. Sweet, fruit forward nose. Notes of apricot, pineapple, kiwi, white flowers, some baked apples and some tan spice. Rich and round in the mouth. Subtle but very present acidity. Past it’s peak perhaps, but it’s a really nice aged white burg. Great mouth feel and finish. Cuts through the cheese and spreads it’s served with. Drink up soon so as not to miss what this has left in the tank. — 7 days ago
Deep, rich and ripe nose of loads of stones, black cherry, dark roses, violets, earth, bittersweet cocoa, and that classic Pommard stoniness. Ultra deep. Almost like a compote on the nose. Palate is dark, juicy, sleek and slippery. Super concentrated but never heavy. Terrific, delicious fruit that is backed up by superb stoniness. Exceptional purity and wonderful freshness and balance. This is a brooding bottle of wine that really balances power, ripeness and grace. This needs some air and i’ll be back but truly a phenomenal wine. — 3 days ago
Had this at a tasting and bought several bottles, aged well, just opened last one. Aged for about 12 months in French oak barrels (15% new). Ruby, brown edges, with aromas of red and black stewed fruits and complex spice. On the palate, flavors of layered fruit, ripe black cherry and raspberry with cedar, tobacco, herbs and nutty notes. Full soft tannins, balanced acidity, long ending with fruit and earthy character. Outstanding! Worth the wait! — 6 days ago
