Lovely dark voluptuous nose, really full ripe black cherry pomegranate blood plums and violets. Lovely and fresh, very tight, great lively acids, very soft generous tannins, good structure, light and yet still penetrating. Excellent harmonious expression.
2011 Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru
Denser and more serious, darker fruit but not as exuberant and lively, less floral more mineral. Quite mysterious and deep in the woods, Hansel & Gretel. Wonderfully vibrant on the palate, lovely concentration, very late liquorice sweetness with some blackcurrant, excellent acids carrying everything, very gentle but assured tannins. Again, a nice bite to it, freshness and texture without weight, alcohol or astringency.
2011 Les Amoureses Chambolle-Musigny
More savoury and earthy, even more brooding and full, earthy and mushroomy. Fuller denser rounder and more rich expression, less overt fruit, more tannin and structure to fill out the freshness and acidity, quite concentrated pure minerality. Precise and straight but also generous.
2011 Bonnes Mares
Floral and dark blueberries, quite exuberant and concentrated, quite sexy and in your face. Very subtle chocolate, heart on its sleeve. Voluptuous sexy rich soft , bold broad and full, still light but super round and generous. Still retaining lovely freshness but rolls around the mouth. A little bit heady…
2011 Musigny Grand Cru Vielles Vignes
Very intense, super minerality, really deep, powerful expression, don’t mess with me kind of seriousness. Subtle and soft, builds very slowly on the palate, powerful bold but far from heavy or extractive, exceptional balance and assuredness, PhD in burgundy.
