Stern upon opening. Dark and tannic. Can hardly believe this is 22 years old. Nice notes of sandalwood started showing after some time. Day two: still very intense and structured. Not much fruit showing, yet no signs of age.

This 07 Chauvenet Vaucrains stole the show today. THIS is how Burgundy should taste. Deep, earthy, perfect tannins, balanced acid. Happy place.

Opened for 2hrs. A little tight at first but the swirling glass opened it up to perfection. Soft round fruit. So pretty.

If there were grand cru in Nuit Saint George this would be one, for sure. You don't believe a Pinot Noir can taste like this. So intense, concentrated and a long lasting after taste. Just love it.

2009 was a great year for burgundy! Decanted for 45 minutes prior to dinner, continued to open up throughout our meal. Black cherry with moderate tannins opening well with slightly smoky overtones. Premier Cru. Can still hold for another 12 years, but why postpone pleasure? Almost enchanting.

Texture and weight of NSG at just the right time, good fruit, not abundant, typically darker berry/fruit
