Very approachable and fruit forward. Unusual for burgundy, but 09 was a warm year so I can understand the more classic sonoma flavors

This was my first truly old Burgundy. Amazing wine and still had lovely fruit. Herbal, elegant, and delicious. 1995 vintage.

2006 vintage. The best Burgundy red I've tried so far. The smoothest, the most round and yet light wine I'ce had. Tannins are like pet tigers—still deliver the texture but in a nice velvet bag of tenderness. Great oak aromas, smoke and plum and fruit. It's as fresh as 2011 but completely calmed down and matured in the most gracefull manner.

10/10.
