Le Petit Roy Red Rhône Blend 2001

Back for the 20ème année (20th year) release here. Ruby red, very good clarity. Funk and figs in nose. Flavors: cola, funk; raspberry strawberry and cherry on finish. Seed tannins unresolved after 30, 60 minutes but fun and easy to drink while you are waiting. Definitely figs in the aftertaste. I’d stock a few of these away and replenish every year. If you must drink French reds, why not start here? Yummy — 11 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Les Fremières Chambolle-Musigny Pinot Noir 2009

Nose has decaying leaves, dried black cherry, distant new shower curtain, slight cow pasture, Maraschino cherry, unopened Bandaid and very slight eucalyptus.

Palate has ripe black cherry, dried blackberry, plum skin, cedar sawdust, blueberry seed, slightly drying on the medium finish and mild acidity remaining.

Not what we generally expect from C-M (our favorite village), but doing acceptably for a Sunday night bottle, peaceful.

2 hour decant, very...stinky on cork pull.

What a glorious example of the area. Minerals for days. Acid like a Jimi Hendrix show in 68 — 2 years ago
