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.

An investment that has continued to pay dividends. Purchased ex-chateau in 2011; 1/2 case at $30/bottle—almost an impossible extravagance for a freshly minted college graduate in a bum economy. Now fully mature (the wine, that is), what a joy to taste this as it evolves over a few hours in the decanter. Cherry/cranberry accord, great acidity, tannins still present, aging delightfully. A silver fox. Way above premier cru. Thankful to have one left.

Putting on a bit of weight w the bottle age, but still light on its feet. Brialles typicity.

Fourth bottle of the case. Double decanted. This is developing nicely, and the aromatics are stunning. Still tight--austere, even--which bodes well for a long life.
