  • **Note: from a 2.7 ha parcel situated entirely in terres rouges soil in the south-west portion of the vineyard** Not unexpectedly here the brooding and somber nose is completely different with a much greater emphasis on earth and smoked tea nuances on the darker hued fruit that includes cassis and black raspberry. The rich, powerful and impressively concentrated large-scaled flavors exhibit a sleek muscularity on the pure, balanced and gorgeously long finish. Like most of these 2010s, there is a serenity present here that allows the wines to unfold elegantly and coherently. This is a compact and quite forceful wine yet it delivers that power with no sense of weight or heaviness.

  • A remarkably attractively cool and restrained nose of various red berries, spice and a beautiful array of floral elements complements well the rich and equally cool mineral-tinged big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension on the clean and pure finish that delivers strikingly good length. This intensely mineral-driven effort is also clean and firm but with slightly better phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements which should allow this beauty to age successfully for many years to come.

  • Deep, bright red. Subtle, pure nose offers black raspberry, black cherry, mint, menthol and a hint of citrus skin. Wonderfully silky and sweet but the black fruit flavors come off more savory than sugary owing to the wine's strong limestone character. Finishes sappy, uncompromisingly dry and very long, with firm tannins and lovely mineral and floral lift.

  • Deep ruby. This is also quite floral yet the character of it is from whiter flowers than those of the Amoureuses. In addition there is good ripeness but also fine freshness to the plum, black cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas. The supple but tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors possess a suave mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the highly persistent finish. Patience will be required.

  • A gorgeously spicy nose is comprised of liqueur-like dark berry fruit scents that also display plenty of floral influence that includes notes of lavender, violet and, somewhat curiously, honeysuckle. There is outstanding concentration and punch to the seductively textured and marvelously intense big-bodied flavors that are borderline robust as the supporting tannins are dense but refined. I really like the Zen-like sense of harmony to the explosively long finish that really stains the palate. In a word, terrific.

  • Tasting note: Compared to the expressiveness of many of the prior wines, this is really quite reserved with pure, refined and naturally spicy red and dark berry pinot fruit that dissolves into round, generous and sweet flavors that, at least presently, lack the same depth as the best here and the finish doesn't have the focus that it usually does either. Perhaps I caught this at an awkward moment but the underlying material simply isn't what I'm used to seeing relative to the exceptionally high quality this wine typically delivers.

    Tasting note: This is turning out better than I foresaw as my original review (see herein) noted some finishing dryness but that was not the case here. A still exceptionally fresh and very primary if highly perfumed nose is composed of spicy red berry fruit aromas that are at once layered and pure. There is both excellent richness and volume to the naturally sweet, detailed and intensely mineral-infused medium-full flavors that exude a subtle classiness on the powerful and focused finale. If there is a nit it's that the complexity that this normally displays isn't present, or at least not yet. That said I underscore that this is in magnum and thus the '06 Musigny is still a decade plus away from its apogee. In sum this is classy stuff that is very definitely still on the way up so patience required and particularly so in the larger format bottling.

    The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Santenots is pointed on the nose, the fruit veering toward black rather than red in hue, with blackcurrant and wilted violet petals emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry: notes of black cherries, raspberry and soy that surface toward the composed and harmonious finish. Perhaps not a long-term Santenots like other 2012s that I have encountered, nevertheless this is a finely crafted wine destined to dish out pleasure.

    The 2012 Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Les Proces has a wonderful, energetic yet sophisticated bouquet with vibrant red and black fruit married harmoniously with the oak. The palate is very smooth on the entry with supple, lithe tannins that caress the mouth. The acidity is well-judged with tart, dark cherry fruit interlaced with hints of soy, while the finish is focused and long. This Nuits Saint Georges has great potential.

    Producer note: As is usually the case, I met with Véronique Drouhin who noted that the 2017 growing season "was much less eventful than its 2016 counterpart though this is not to say that we didn't have some drama, mostly from a late April frost scare. And instead of the heavy mildew pressure we endured last year, we did have a significant attack of bud eating caterpillars that cost us some yield. While it's hard to estimate with precision, it was probably around 10% of the potential crop. [Known in Burgundy as mange bourgeons or literally, bud eaters.] Otherwise the season was clement and calm and the healthy yields were able to ripen without difficulty. Despite this the véraison was extended and this made harvesting tricky as each parcel had to be picked precisely when it was perfectly ripe. Thankfully the weather conditions in early September were ideal and just as importantly they held all the way to the end of what was an extended harvest for us. The fruit was super-clean and notably ripe with better volumes in red than white. We used a bit more whole clusters than usual because as I noted the fruit was clean and ripe with good phenolic maturities. One aspect of the 2017s that is worthy of note is how much they changed before and after the malos and I thought that they really improved. Moreover, the malos did not unduly degrade the acidities so there is good freshness and energy to the wines. For us at Drouhin, 2017 produced classically styled reds that are good to very good but I would describe the whites as genuinely great." I agree with Drouhin in terms of her description of the 2017s and overall I found the quality here to be impressive and particularly so among the big houses. (Dreyfus, Ashby & Co., www.dreyfusashby.com, NY, USA; Pol Roger Ltd., www.polroger.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: While not quite as aromatically complex as the GE, it's close as this also features a panoply of spice elements along with exceptionally fresh and dense red currant, violet and plum aromas. Interestingly the mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is super-fine, indeed almost lilting and delicate, with a relatively pliant if sneaky long finish. This is lovely if a bit atypical.

There is very outstanding depth on the focused and sleekly muscular broad-shouldered flavors that exude a sense of focused power as well as ample minerality before culminating in a strikingly long and well-balanced finish.

    Producer note: Jacques Seysses described the 2007 vintage as having a "very early flowering with good early season weather that was unfortunately largely undone by a poor and wet summer. The second half of August however was very fine and we began picking on September 1st. It was necessary to do a severe sorting and as a result, we had a very small harvest. Sugars ranged from 12 to 13% but we had reasonably good phenolic ripeness thanks mainly to all of the old vines that we now have. In fact, I would go so far as to say that old vines were probably the most important qualitative determinant outside of the basic requirements of doing good vineyard work, proper sorting, etc. Destemming ranged from 0 to 30% so all the wines have a good percentage of stems in them. In terms of vinification, we did out best to preserve the natural elegance and finesse of the vintage. Overall, the vintage reminds me of 2000, which gave generous, ripe and round wines meant for early to mid-term drinking." I think consumers will like them very much, just as consumers have praised the 2000s." The Dujac 2007s are very much representative of the vintage as a whole, which is to say that it strongly favored old vines and the best expositions and while it's true that the grands crus virtually always produce the best wines, it is especially true in 2007. As to the Dujac 2006s, they have turned out to be lovely wines that are a bit riper if not quite as elegant as their 2007 counterparts. (Wilson-Daniels Ltd., St. Helena, CA and Chambers & Chambers, San Francisco, CA for southern California; Morris & Verdin, O.W. Loeb, Howard Ripley, Uncorked Ltd, Flint Wines and Lay & Wheeler, UK).
    Tasting note: An overtly spiced nose adds nuance to the red berry fruit aromas laced with earth notes that merge into moderately-scaled and intense flavors that possess good volume and concentration as well as impressive persistence. The inherent breed of the appellation is quite evident.

    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses described the 2009 vintage as an "excellent vintage that was relatively straightforward. We did have some vineyards that were hit hard by hail, most notably Clos St. Denis, Clos de la Roche, Combottes and Charmes-Chambertin, but thankfully, it was more a question of quantity rather than quality. We picked between the 10th and 17th of September, which is not only a shorter harvest time than usual but also quite quick considering the crop load. Potential alcohols ranged from 12.5 to about 13.2% so there was very little, and in some cases no, chaptalization. We used about 90% of the stems in the vinification and we even moved up the percentage of whole clusters in the newly acquired vineyards where we have typically used less up to this point. We did do some very minor acidifying as the pHs were in the 3.6 range and we wanted to retain all of the freshness possible. As to the percentage of new wood, we used 40 to 45% for the villages wines and increased it proportionately to between 90 and 100% for the grands crus. Overall, I think the 2009 will be extremely popular as the wines are ripe but not too ripe and will be accessible early yet they should age well too." Seysses also observed that viticulturally speaking, the vineyards acquired in 2005 were almost at the same level as the existing vineyards. Note that the '09 Charmes-Chambertin and Beaux-Monts were not presented for review as both were still in malo. The excellent in-bottle '08s came in about where my ranges suggested that they would and as long as you intend to age them for an appropriate period, they should absolutely be candidates for your cellars.

    Tasting note: A remarkably fresh and expressive nose displays high-toned red berry fruit, earth and mineral aromas that give way to firm, serious and equally mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that offer excellent verve on the well-muscled and especially structured finish that seems to go on without end. This positively dazzling effort is not quite old school in basic character though it knocks on the door of it and like several of these grands crus, will need 15 to 20+ years to reach its full prime. A 'wow' and potentially one of the greatest vintages ever for the Dujac Bonnes Mares, which is saying something given this wine's superb track record.

  • A towering, utterly majestic wine, the 2012 Bonnes Mares is the stuff dreams are made of. Within the Dujac range, the Bonnes Mares doesn't seem to get as much attention as some of the other wines, but its track record over time places it at or near the top in my view, excluding of course the Romanee St. Vivant and Chambertin, both of which have much shorter track records. Beams of tannin, acidity and minerality propel the Bonnes Mares into the stratosphere. The flavors are dark, intense and tightly wound. In other words, this is classic Bonnes Mares that will require a good decade to become approachable, although personally, I would not open a bottle before age twenty. With sufficient bottle age, Dujac's Bonnes Mares has often developed into a transcendental Burgundy of the very highest level.

  • **Note: from a 1.37 ha parcel of 60+ year old vines situated close to the Château; vinified with 50% whole clusters** Background floral notes combine with ripe, earthy, somber and notably serious aromas that lead to dense, powerful and tautly muscular flavors that brim with an amazing amount of tannin-buffering dry extract, all wrapped in a velvety, firm and linear finish. This is genuinely sensational and one of the very best examples of the appellation in the 2009 vintage though I hasten to point out that patience will be required.

    Producer note: Château Latour, and more recently Château Grillet in Condrieu, President Frédéric Engerer also directs Domaine Eugénie along with his second in command, régisseur Michel Mallard. As is typically the case, I saw both Engerer and Mallard who told me that 2011 was a "very surprising vintage that doesn't quite have the purity of 2010 but is actually much closer than we thought that it might be. We picked from the 4th to the 9th of September and there was a lot of sorting necessary. We can normally pick our vineyards in four days but in 2011 it required six. Potential alcohols were perfectly good at around 12%. We did our normal vinification using between 30 and 50% whole clusters and used the same wood program that we did in 2010. As to the style of the wines, they are both pure and elegant. Moreover they should age well too but because they are ripe and nicely concentrated with pliable tannins, they should also be accessible young." I would describe the domaine's performance in 2011 as having outperformed the general quality of the vintage. In other developments, the domaine will have several new appellations as it has acquired about one ouvrée (.04285 ha) each of Montrachet and Bâtard-Montrachet along with two ouvrées of Meursault "Poruzots" and a bit of Chassagne villages. As to the now in-bottle 2010s, they are quite simply terrific up and down the line up. They are more than worth considering if you can find them.

    Tasting note: This is also exuberantly fresh with slightly riper aromas of spiced plum, black cherry and a lovely floral component that merges into silky, even velvety flavors that possess excellent mid-palate concentration. This is both bigger and richer if perhaps not quite as tension-filled on the long, brooding, somber and moderately austere finish. Like the 2011 version this is relatively fine compared to the typical Echézeaux thanks to its terroir but that shouldn't affect its ability to age and improve effortlessly for the next 12 to 15 years as the balance is impeccable.

  • Tasting note: A discreet whiff of wood easily reveals notes of essence of black cherry, violet, sandalwood and Asian-style tea. The sleek, intense and rich middle weight plus flavors possess excellent volume before terminating in a velvety, sappy and notably firm finish that is sneaky long and impressively complex. This attractively vibrant effort should amply reward 12 to 15 years of bottle age yet be approachable after only 5 to 7.

  • (75% new oak): Medium red color. Strong soil tones to the aromas of dark cherry, red licorice and truffle. Voluptuous on entry, then quite closed in the middle, showing less primary fruit and more earth than the Echézeaux or Grands-Echézeaux bottlings today. Turns more taut on the back end, showing strong tannins that will clearly require extended cellaring. "Our real vin de garde par excellence," notes winemaker Michel Mallard. I may be underestimating this wine's potential quality.
