Wow, je m’attendais sans aucune raison à un vin plus costaud mais pas du tout, un vin élegant et raffiné. Couleur très limpide d’un rouge cerise. Au nez, note de fruits rouges, d’épices, en bouche c’est fin, on goute la fraises, c’est quelque peu acidulé, des notes de Kirsh, tabac, du cedre. C’est plein de niveau de saveur, le vin évolue constamment. La finale est longue. Une tres bonne bouteille. — 19 days ago
The Beaujolais wine we love to taste. Carbonic maceration that brings explosive and intoxicating fruity, coupled with pigeage in the Burgundian style, and partial ageing in barrels bringing delicate tertiary notes. The colour is bright red, typical of a Saint-Amour. The bouquet is ripe and floral red fruit, with beautiful herbaceous notes. The tannins are fine but well marked. The finish is stretched on freshness, strawberry and flowers. It's a lot of fun.
Le type de Beaujolais qu’on adore goûter. La macération carbonique apportant le fruité explosif et enivrant, couplé avec un pigeage à la bourguignonne et d’un élevage partiel en fût apportant de délicates notes tertiaires. La robe est rouge vif typique d’un Saint-Amour. Le bouquet est fruits rouges mûrs et floral, avec de belles notes herbacées. Les tanins sont fins mais bien marqués. La finale est tendue sur la fraîcheur, la fraise et les fleurs. Beaucoup de plaisir. — 5 days ago
Celebrating Mother’s Day and our son’s 18th b-day with a 2003 Cos. A beautiful crimson red with definite bricking. A very fragrant nose filling the senses with a perfume raspberry dark plumb, stewed meat , and cedar, pine-menthol and lingering notes of a vanilla forest floor. Creamy and rich in flavor; a juicy layered fresh feel on the palate. Flavors of dark raspberry-cherry mint spice, pencil lead tobacco with a smokey earthy chocolate-coffee long finish, yum, yum!! A great wine to celebrate today m honor of our son! — 5 days ago
Nose is dynamite. Meyer lemon. Discreet oak. Floral, wet stones, wet earth, peaches? Superb delineation on the nose between, earth, mineral, flowers and fruit. As it opens more lime pith, more slate? Almost Mosel like. Wow, acid, concentration off the charts. Really young, but so clean, so pure and so long. Also initially closed. What density and what amazing material. Really nice texture and again, this is so mineral driven it’s crazy. Such a wealth of material here.
As it airs some spice develops. This seems really backwards and needs time but also is so so fine. Could be Chassagne. Explosive mineral finish and so earthy. This is as old school as St. Aubin gets. Saline, rocky and earthy. But finish is clipped as a function of its youth but man is this promising. — 21 days ago
First sip is crazy. Totally unique.
Palate is intense. Fresh. Almost painfully fresh and tart in a good way. Think a great vintage of willi Schaefer how it gets that intense Green apple jolly rancher thing. Except this is Chardonnay and tressalier. Yes. I know this note is a bit imprecise but it’s not like I have a lot of experience with tressalier.
Has this stunning controlled density. Blind I might guess aged very good Grand cru Chablis. Shows what I know.
Man. This is very good.
Nose is lightly floral. Sorta closed but the little you get is gorgeous. If the nose comes around this is world class wine.
As this opens you get almost this elegant marsanniness. Almost mountain Marsanne. Rich and lightly floral.
An hour in this is insane. The density, complexity and elegance of grand cru burgundy. Spectacular.
Makes me wonder how many other random areas can make elite wines.

Without doubt, for the loot, Duband is my favorite producer in Burgundy.
This has relaxed and is now ready to drink. Subtly, elegance and grace define the core characteristics of this superb pinot.
The nose is understated, but still presents cedar, smoke and ripe cherries. Great, structured mid palate. Tannins are still prominent. Cinnamon notes and vibrant acidity bring home the excellent finish. This still needs more time in the bottle, and I predict further improvement in the long run. — 5 days ago
Needs decanting or time in the glass to fully express itself. At first pour it was all about black olives and chewiness and then over time the ripe black plums and cherries appeared and things mellowed out in a good way. #bordeaux #claret #stestephe #leftbank #leftbankbordeaux — 7 days ago
