Tough vintage, beautiful wine. Garnet, starting to brick at the edges. Opened up nicely after 90 minutes. The aromas tell the whole story. Strawberries and assorted other lil red forest fruits, loamy earth, dried leaves. Some stemmy astringency on the finish that calls out for food. Which, time to eat

Nice perfume nose dominated by strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, hawthorn, cranberry and dried date. Forest floor and dried herbs hide behind the fruit. Moderate tannin and moderate plus acidity. Slight green on the finish. Very nice!

Roasted fruits, game, meat juices. 2009 hot-vintage character, but not baked, raisined or overdone. Actually quite fresh, with lots of life left in it. One of the best wines of the vintage, from a first-rate domaine.

A fantastic value at $46.50 a bottle. Opened at 3:00 and by 5:30 was presenting beautifully. Coates gives the producer two stars (only 29 two-stars in all of the Côte d'Or — only 17 three-star). Grand Cru level 1er Cru. 2007 was not a great year — this wine is an exception.

Just over 5 years of age opening the floral and sinewy aspects well. Paired with housemade Tartiflette. #myjam
