This is super open after a brutal closed period. Had it in March blind from Thierry's cellar and was glorious. My 2nd to last bottle. Nose of sweet cherry fruit, very red, nice intense minerality and some wet earth. Rustic and high toned. Some mint and fine tobacco. Glorious. Palate is balanced, lipsmacking and ripe. Nice acids. Nice texture and balance. Needs 40 minutes still to round out. Big Irancy tannins but excellent ripeness.

Lovely nose. Very Pinot and pretty. Floral and herbal. Juicy and ripe with terrific elegance and purity. Wowsers. Ready to go.

Showing so well. Deep cherry fruit. Mostly red but also some black. Spice, mint, menthol, earth, glorious aroma. Unreal nose. Palate is rich and ripe with super intense fruit and perfect balance. So juicy and mineral. What a showing. Long finish and just so good today.

Last time I had this around 1.5-2 years ago it was brutally closed. On my recent trip to France I had the regular 08 and it was glorious. Was time for a revisit. Nose is very promising with leafy earth tones, dried flowers, spice, menthol and mint and distinct aged aromas finally coming through. Really nice aromas. Wow, amazing what time does. Elegant and juicy with delicious red fruits and terrific fine powder like tannins. What balance and poise. This has transformed remarkably. It is the wine I remember now tasting it years ago in Thierry's cellar back in 2012.

Very aromatic. Beautiful cherry fruit. Touch of licorice. Roasted fruits. Great character. Very complex in the mouth. Needs 2-5 years. Great concentration. Very pure. A bit short from youth.

Beautiful vibrating red cherry. Juicy, concentrated and fresh. Amazing freshness and powdery tannins. Chalky and vibrant. This is showing mindbogglingly well.

Lovely red cherry fruit. Some herbal weedy thing. Disjointed but there's nice acidity and sweet fruit but it's all there. It's needs time to be knit tougher.
