Love the 1996. Still fresh, vibrant and full of life. Maybe a bit classically austere relative to most vintages, but vivid, persistent and highly nuanced. Adore the translucent energy here.

I've never given out a 10 before. Truly amazing. Just total perfection in a glass. Translucent color that was so beautiful. Speechless. Great to share with so many Somm friends at the Pebble Beach Food and Wine Fest after party.

Stunning purity of fruit and brightness. Still very tightly wound, but wow, what a wine.

About as profound as wine gets. A magical, totally arresting Burgundy.

Such sweet fruit but with that little hint of the crunchy herbs at the back. Still very present and the meat hasn't quite started to show yet. Delicious wine. Greg Gregory would be proud.

1990 vintage, amazing depth and length. Some secondary notes, much life ahead.
