At perfect maturity. Few tannins but ample material in the mouth. Concentration and finesse between gourmet fruity notes of youth ( strawberry cherry) and aerial, vegetable, dried and peppery flowers.
À maturité parfaite, concentration et souplesse entre notes fruitées gourmandes de jeunesses (griotte fraise) et notes aériennes, végétales, fleurs séchées, poivrées. — 2 months ago
Gamay from mâconnais, with aging marked on notes of vanilla, cocoa, leather. Compared to 2016, the luxuriance of the fruit is a little more marked and gives change to the aging notes without being hidden. A well-made duel wine on a classic style.
Gamay mâconnais, à l’élevage marqué sur des notes vanilles, cacao, cuir. Par rapport à 2016 la luxuriance du fruit est un peu plus marquée et donne le change aux notes d’élevage sans être cachée. Un vin duel bien fait au style classique. — 4 months ago
Buttery toasty nose, hint of matchstick, and a dense, tart, mineral flavour. — 5 months ago

A sign of the Times when my Lemelson Pinot Noir from same vintage scores same aggregate score: 90 in Delectable. These are not the same experience. This Baudry is a powerhouse with multiple layers. Robust and almost bursting at the the seams with blackberry & cassis. A remarkable concentration of color, flavor, & nose-like a Volnay but more on cassis & black fruit spectrum. Also bay leaf, menthol, & eucalyptus. While I’ve held several Raffaults for our daughter’s birth year, I regret not laying down a few Baudrys given they are less prone to bottle variability. What a delicious, profound wine. Dressner import. — 4 months ago
