Never heard of this producer? Burgundian. Spice, herbs, peppercorn and a black raspberry core. Tinge of green, but not in the way that is off putting...more just a part of this wine’s lean structure. A red and black fruit medley emerges after time in the glass. Whole cluster going on here for sure. Very cool.

This is the second vintage I’ve had of this wine. It’s still great! Nice big nose, which I enjoy, fruity flavor and easy finish. I would have to do a side by side tasting to be absolutely sure but I _think_ I like the 2012 slightly better. Which would fit with Murphy’s Law as there will obviously be less of them.

Delightful. Chewy like a fresh saltwater taffy. Wonderful plum and blackberry with hints of oak and cola. Berge made a great vintage with this one. Nice job broham. Excellent.

2007 - complex, but still hiding in the shadows this wine has more good years ahead.
