Mostly we were drinking Champagne, but we needed something to go with some meat so we opted for this half bottle of spicy blackberry and black pepper, cassis, flowers, and mushroom umami that made me very happy. Supple, restrained tannins, and of course phenomenal acidity. Wish I had a few bigger bottles of this to age for a few years. — a month ago

Les Peuillets Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru 2010

brick-maroon, slightly clunky on the nose where an earthy beet-root muffles some floral characteristics, but the event is rescued on the palate where some nimble acids kick in and bring along something I can only describe as cherry toast. (^*~*^) perhaps just over the edge but still enjoyable for some late pandemic day-drinking. — 3 months ago

La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2007

Very traditional and old-fashionied.
No 2007-sweetness. All about structure and spice. Cloves, smoke, pepper, blood, tree-bark and a hint of blackberry..

Côte Blonde Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2005

Opened with slow oxygenation for 5 hours before tasting. Palate is expressive and changes nicely in the glass all night, very floral, violets and still some varietal Syrah scents and profile despite the 15 years. Palate is medium bodied, freshness is there, the tannins have melted and are of very nice texture, the medium plus length finale ends with some peppery and flowery tones. Nice but expected a little more. 90-91

Ouvert 5 heures avant dégustation en retirant le bouchon seulement. Un nez aromatique et évoluant très bien dans le verre, floral, violettes et montrant assez peu d’évolution. La bouche de texture soyeuse est assez fraîche, des tannins fondus, c’est fin et assez élégant sans être très complexe, une finale de longueur de niveau moyenne plus sur de jolis accents floraux et poivrés. Très bien mais je m’attendais à un peu plus.

Love this cuvée but, finding this one doesn’t age as long as my initial expectation.
