Once again, SC describes this nicely, so I'll leave his notes here:
One of those special and unique Burgundy. Extremely elegant, velvety, with that unique typical "Griotte" expression. Very precise. Unlike othee Grand Cru's from Dugat, the oak here is more than intergrated behind a gorgeous violet bouquet.
I thought this was wonderful. Blue fruited and very floral nose, with a touch of oak. Palate brings about some delicious spice, bright cherries and plums, and clear precision with the acidity and finish. There's a real rustic touch with the tannins, although very fine. Begs for even more age in my opinion, but drinks phenomenally now! — 5 days ago
Sexy fucking wine. Sexy is overused but I’d get in a hastily planned 3 month relationship with this wine that would end in bitter heartbreak. Gorgeous nose. Flowers, big cherries, lipstick vibe. Palate is ripe and opulent with lovely sucrosity and wonderful freshness. Silky tannins and great mouthfeel. Very 15 but also very alluring. Long finish. Wonderful mineral drive and very complex. Great today. — 5 days ago
Beautiful color. At first we thought it was off but that quickly blew off. Slightly evolved nose but still in a lovely spot. Hoisin sauce, dark plum and dusty cherry on the nose. Fresh and supple on the palate. Long finish like silk. — 8 days ago
Drinking beautifully, 45 min decant. Excellent tart red fruit, excellent balance and tannin integration. Spare stateliness, personified. Drinking this wine is like watching Gene Kelly dance: elegance, mastery, nothing wasted. Paired with London broil and chocolate pasta, cacio e pepe . Ty, Fass Selections. — 14 days ago
Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has cedar box, ripe black cherry, wet soil, prune and decaying leaves.
Palate has dried cherry, dried blackberry, ripe cherry, wet leather with some grip of tannins lingering.
Just a delightful village-level bottle from a storied production team. — 16 days ago
Dark fruited built on an acidic framework with firm but fine tannins. Interesting reductive ( in a good way) for a house that is reputed to use little sulfur. But this 1er has chops for sure (my first experience with Bel-Air), which immediately confirms that its neighbors are all quite “grand”! — a day ago
