Dégustation à aveugle de 5 Pinots Noirs. Un vin avec un bel équilibre entre tous les éléments, une belle texture, très long, des épices, fruits noirs, terreux, un boisé bien dosé et judicieux. Déjà très bon pour un 2016 de ce producteur, mais la patience sera récompensée sans aucun doute. Mon no 3 mais tout près du no 1. No 1 pour le panel.
Blind tasting of 5 pinots. A wine with great balance between all elements, dark fruits, earthy and a slight touch if noble oak. Very nice for a 2016 of that producer who usually requires time in bottle. My No 3 but close to 1. No 1 for the panel. 92-93 — 11 days ago
When in Paris…. This is a wine I never see in the states but this is the second time I have had it in Paris, last time in 375 format no less. Wine is loooong, great structure and dark fruit. It drinks, and is priced like, a very good premier cru and I have zero regrets ordering it. I am a Rousseau fan, your mileage may vary, but this is a terrific Gevrey if you get the opportunity. — a day ago
Offered as an extra after the 5 Pinots. Bery nice showing as well, especially for the vintage, finesse and elegance and of good level too. 90-91

WNH NY, 2021.
A gift from big @Joe Lucca. Like me, he loves great burgs, and this didn’t suck either. Lighter in presentation, visually and on the palate. French oak has a very distinctive signature, along with hint of sour cherries. Palate shows pomegranate along with a hint of sour cherries. So well structured, with bright acidity keeping everything together. No rush to consume this. Lots of runway ahead of it. — 13 days ago
Because pandemic means drinking wine again with friends is a special occasion, time to break out some good Burgundy. I don’t have many bottles of Premiere Cru Burgundy, but this one felt like it needed drinking this afternoon. Right off the bat it had an incredible bacon and smoked meat aroma that was pretty alluring, with flavors of raspberry and black raspberry tinged with herbs and forest floor. Fairly rich and robust on the Burgundy spectrum, but gorgeously silky and balanced. — 21 days ago
