What a huge 2015 success. Lovely nose of big cherry, cassis, crushed stones and so much intense minerality. Floral as well with lavender and mashed violets. Intense and gorgeous. Palate is just a fruit bomb. Amazingly concentrated yet elegant as well with huge rich cherry fruit that is so sweet and gorgeously defined. Wonderful acidity and freshness. Best showing yet. — 19 days ago
Insanity on the nose. Just bonkers. Sickness. Huge spice. Huge I mean huge spice. Also super mineral and very pure. Confectionary cotton candy like aromas and tree bark. Also tea. Maybe hoisin as well. Mindblowing. Big palate and immense power but incredibly elegant. It has Grand Cru grip and intensity and it is considered the best wine at the estate. Better than Clos des Chenes. It is insanely powerful and stacked to the brim with bright fruit and mineral that has sap, and really stains the palate. I think in 2 hours this will be insane. It’s changing every minute. What a wine. — 7 months ago
Nose is a little toasty oak, blueberry juice, and blackberry.
Palate has oak-like cherry but very restrained on woody aspects, mid-season supermarket cherry, ripe plum, red raspberry, blackberry, TBD mineral, perfect acid levels!
I want to drink everything I have at this level, decanted for over one hour and this is absolutely perfect, nothing in the way of enjoyment. Pierrick Bouley is genius.
24hr Update: Nice giant (size-wise, not overpowering, the large sized berries have a more subtle flavor) blueberry flavor. Oak is more noticeable today, but not obtrusive to the red/blue fruits, a gentle compliment, perfect today. — a year ago
Chill it A bit and enjoy with basically anything. A great find and far better than ratings indicate. — 3 months ago
Splendid. Robardelle is parceled in village and premier levels and this one kinda rare was very good — 4 months ago
This is insanely great. In warm vintages I find Volnay and Pommard always delivery. 03/05/09/15. More warm vintages to come! Beautiful nose of tea leaf, earthy loamy minerality, gorgeous deep red cherry fruit that is almost exotic with a hint of licorice. Amazing fruit on this nose. But also really complex. Stunning. Fresh, elegant and beautifully balanced with ripe fruit but also cleansing acidity, some grippy tannin and big time depth. Amazingly fine tannins as it airs out. Like velvet. Stunning. I can’t believe how great this is. Will last 20 more years. — 7 months ago
