Very serene zen nose. Mineral. Some mid-season cherry fruit. After 10 minutes the fruit aromatically erupts like a volcano. Strawberry and watermelon. Wow. Really great. Classic Beaune Prévoles tweed jacket as well. Just wafting aromas. Palate has ungodly 2018 fruit. Stunning purity and mouthfeel. Balance is magical. Refined and superbly elegant. Velvety tannins and very chewy. Long finish with a hint of rusticity. Pure. Lovely.

Love this cuvee from Boussey. Stunning nose. So elegant and pure. Haunting florals, cherries, floral and ripe but so detailed. Gorgeous. Licorice. Whirlwind. Great aromas. Juicy and sweet with lovely intensity. Great tannins and refined with a nice rustic hint on the finish. Excellent and compact.

Great wine and killer value. Mineral, spice and huge red cherries. Sense of deepness. Very aromatic and super mineral. Palate is generous and ripe with lovely focus and clarity. Terrific freshness and lovely fruit. Structure to burn and velvety tannins suggest this has 10-12 years. Wonderful wine.

Nose is sexy Pinot noir fruit. High toned blackberry with some lovely spice. Really big and sexy my guess bc of the vintage. Palate is big juicy blackberry fruit. Really sweet and juicy and delicious. Just Palate is slammingly good. Bought from Fass selections. ... after an hour the internal aromatics are massive massively blackberry spice. Almost chewy. Wow. If you are ever down drink a bottle of this.

Beautiful lieu dit from Beaune. Definitely needs a bit of time - after 2 hours in the decanter, the aromas are beautiful and leap from the glass. Would prefer to wait for a couple years, tannins are a bit chewy - but still very nice. Excellent pairing with turkey on thanksgiving number 2.

First wine in Beaune. 2009 was definitely a good vintage. It tastes still young, but very mineral, soily, and with a woody tree trunk note that always screams Beaune to me.
