A powerful lush, soft nose of red fruit, cherry and darker brooding forest floor. All blowsy and supple. Still young with oak working through. Approachable now.

Very reductive at first, it needed over an hour in a decanter. After that it opened up beautifully. My only gripe was way too much diacetyl on the nose.

Old school. This is what good burgundy's all about. A middle-of-the-road vintage but this still had ample, polished tannins, the piquant rustic acidity I expect (and long for) from great pinot, and hints of a peacocks tail at the end, unravelling layer upon (subtle) layer of flavour. At the end there's a lovely hint of finely ground black pepper. It's got flaws but it's still damned good.

2001 vintage. As near perfect burgundy as I have had in memory. At peak age now. Pretty, floral, dried fall leaves, tobacco, black tea, endlessly emerging and changing aromas. Perfectly integrated and resolved tannins, soft ripe strawberry fruit persisting.
