Vintage = 1993. Worcestershire sauce, umami but no hard edges. Velvet, feathery.

A gorgeous old Pommard, full of sois bois, truffle but still with a core of fruit. Fully integrated tannins, delicious right now, quite good for the near future. #gaunoux #pommard #rugiens #redburgundy

Tobacco, bing cherry, shiitake mushroom, blood, and truffles on the nose. Palate fills out with such softness yet so much life. Dark chocolate & cherries with hints of metal components on the tongue. Mocha dust and truffle on the finish. Epic. Delicious. Tannins to last another 10 years.

Violets, truffle, sweet cherries, plum, earthiness galore. Incredible for the age. Brick color, no filtration. Good length - 45sec
