Had it November 2010.
Brilliant ruby. Little red berries, chinotto, graphite, hints of orange 🍊, very elegant herbaceous note, almost balsamic, might be mint or spearmint. Velvety mouth, smooth, easy to drink and long. Best vintage of this wine so far.

Complex baked fruit and scorched earth, animal hide. At this age the '08 is more Cornas than Côte de Nuits.

Brittle. Reduction. Stewed veggies. Still good balance and interesting wine.

Lucious, delicate, powerful. So many layers. Enjoyed the day sharing this with others.

Oxidative? Possibly a storage issue, but not too sure, as this ripeness factor has a tendency to develop in a strange way. Wanted to love it though...
