Hot damn this delicious. Over delivering on all fronts. Perfect balance of whole cluster, extract and oak integration. From a plot above the Côte Brune on a plateau of schist and clay which creates a nice plumpness on the palate balanced by the acid profile of this wind-exposed site above the Côte Rôtie. Deeply hued, vibrant and seductively ripe blackberry and huckleberry notes, sweet smoked meat, roasted earth, olive tapenade, lavender, leather, tobacco, wood smoke, mocha. The juice and joyous feeling make for an easy drink but theres structural stuffing here to add a serious side. Can’t wait to revisit. — 20 days ago

3/19. Very nice wine. Dark purple and nice spice. Paired nicely with the peppered duck breast. — a month ago
Nose is stinky cherry, (I'm not sure if this is old Chinon or 2009 Burgundy) muddy minerals and over-ripe plum.
Palate is ripe black cherry, charred barrel, white pepper, light green bell pepper but the barnyard notes are coming...🐄💨🐑💨🐂💨.
I think this needs much air, as had been our experience with '09 Burgundy in the past couple of years, if you want to drink it now. Likely this bottle still has a decade ahead of it. I'll update notes as the wine opens further. — 2 months ago
