    Tasting note: An attractively fresh and ultra-pure nose features notes of the pure essence of black cherry, cassis, spice and whiffs of herbal tea and violet. The succulent and nicely rich medium weight flavors exude a subtle minerality on the refined and refreshing if dusty and mildly edgy finish. My sense is that the edginess will dissipate once the tannins begin to mellow.

    Tasting note: A very ripe yet agreeably fresh nose reflects notes of blue berry, plum liqueur and violet that are cut with spice, menthol and earth hints. The exceptionally rich and impressively full-bodied flavors evidence a taut muscularity, all wrapped in an overtly powerful and lingering finish that is naturally sweet. As one would reasonably expect this is quite firm; indeed it's borderline rustic.

    Tasting note: An openly exotic nose offers glimpses of black cherry liqueur, ginger, Asian-style tea, sandalwood and orange peel along with plenty of floral elements. The tighter and much more mineral-driven big-bodied flavors also possess evident muscle on the powerful and dense yet beautifully refined finish that goes on and on. This is also a bit less structured though with that said, this is going to need at least 15 years to reach its apogee. In sum, this is relatively refined though still a very serious wine.

    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.

Red Burgundy Drouhin Joseph 2012 Lavaux Saint Jacques 1 Case 6 75cl £450£420
  • Tasting note: This is really quite aromatically pretty with its fresh and cool aromas of red and black pinot fruit, earth, game and wet stone nuances. The sense of minerality continues onto the intense, delineated and energetic flavors that display noticeable wood toast on the lingering, dusty and mildly austere finish. This is firmly structured yet balanced and should reward longer-term cellaring if desired as this could be approached young too.

  • Tasting note: This too is strikingly floral with its spicy, pure and cool nose that blends attractively complex aromas of both red and dark currant. In the same fashion as the Clos de Bèze, the palate impression of the vibrant middle and overtly mineral-driven flavors is almost delicate yet in contrast to the Bèze, they tighten up on the youthfully austere and gorgeously persistent finish. This is a bona fide 'wow' wine.

    Note: 40% whole clusters
    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.

    Tasting note: This is notably ripe yet still fresh and quite pretty with violet, plum and black cherry liqueur aromas that are trimmed in plenty of earth. The big, powerful and solid-concentrated middle weight plus flavors have really deepened and broadened since I last saw this in barrel. While I would stop short of describing it as robust the tannic structure is quite firm and this is clearly built to last for another 20 years. An impressive effort that it best left in the cellar for another 7 to 10 years as it will require at least that long for the tannic spine to mellow. This is definitely a lovely effort with excellent potential because despite all of the size, weight and punch, there is an impeccable sense of balance.

    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses described the 2008 vintage as one that had a "great deal of shot berries and this was important for two reasons as it added concentration as well as naturally gave better aeration to the normal-sized bunches. There was a lot of sorting required, both for rot and for under ripe berries. We did a normal vinification of between 10 to 12 days of cuvaison with a relatively high percentage of whole clusters, which ranged from 2/3 to a full 100%. We reduced the amount of new wood slightly though probably not enough to really be detectable in the finished wines. Overall, I am very bullish on the vintage and I think it's going to surprise a lot of people who were influenced by the pre-malo comments." The in-bottle '07s came in about where my ranges suggested that they would and while they are very pretty, and in some cases genuinely excellent, they cannot match the quality of their '08 counterparts when taken as a group.

    Tasting note: Here the nose displays both upper and lower register aromas of elegant red berry fruit, floral notes and plenty of Gevrey-style earth plus a hint of the sauvage that carries over to the intense yet supple and detailed medium-bodied flavors that are balanced, complex, sappy and impressively persistent. A Charmes of refinement and purity with enough youthful austerity present to necessitate waiting at least a few years before cracking one.

  • 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.

    The wines are classic burgundies with good terroir transparencies that should age extremely well. In fact about the only thing that I don't like is the fact that quantities were down from 30 to 50% in our upper level wines." I observed last year that the domaine had seriously outperformed the general quality of the 2011 vintage. Now that the wines are in bottle, and several are revisited below, I stand by that statement as they are terrific and this is true from top to bottom.

    Tasting note: A discreet touch of wood sets off the spicy black cherry, cassis and floral aromas that slide gracefully into rich, generous and opulent large-scaled flavors that display both excellent volume and fine phenolic maturity of the structural items, all wrapped in a mouth coating and mildly austere finish. This is every bit as long as the Malconsorts but not quite as deep. That said, there is an abundance of dry extract here and it could match it in time.

Red Burgundy Dujac 2012 Charmes Chambertin 2 Bottle 75cl £230
  • BH - Tasting note: Once again there is enough reduction present to warrant mentioning. This is much like the Combottes in that the mouth feel is exceptionally fine and sophisticated largely thanks to the fine grain of the supporting tannins as well as the abundance of palate coating dry extract. In this case though there is a bit more depth and length and even though the difference is slight it is nonetheless sufficient to push this to another level. At the risk of sounding like a broken record about the reduction, here too it is a concern and thus my score assumes that it will ultimately dissipate with a few years of bottle age.

    Note: from a 1.48 ha parcel
    Producer note: Jeremy Seysses describes the 2013 vintage as "a very wet vintage that threw its fair share of challenges at us during the growing season. The flowering was troubled and resulted in a high percentage of shot berries which is great for wine quality but not for quantity. Things didn't go well for most of the season though we did have a 30 day window of beautiful weather between the middle of August to the middle of September. Then conditions turned wet again and generally speaking there was rot pressure beginning to build. We waited a bit longer than many of our neighbors and didn't begin picking until the 7th of October and continued through to the 13th. As a whole the fruit was pretty clean though some sectors required more sorting than others. Quantities came in slightly lower than what we obtained in 2012 but this isn't true across the board as some parcels gave us more and others less. Potential alcohols were variable as well with a range of 11.4 to 12.4% though I underscore that I'm using a conversion rate of 18 grams of sugar per liter which is a good deal more conservative than the regulatory rate. Acidities are firm without being aggressive and remind me of what we had in 2008. We used a bit less whole clusters than we usually do which is to say on average about 70% though the actual range is from 33 to 100%. As to the wines, my view is that 2013 is a classic Burgundian vintage and at the very least it's a good year. To bracket that comment somewhat I prefer 2013 to 2011 but not to 2010 or 2012."

    The 2014 Echézeaux Grand Cru has a clean, precise bouquet, quite broody and introspective, a subtle marine influence infusing the black and red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, chalky tannin, tightly wound with a strict, saline finish that leaves the mouth tingling long after it has departed. This is a classy, quite sophisticated Echézeaux in the making, one that should be at the upper end of my banded score with requisite bottle age.

    (the Dujac holding is in the lieu-dit Les Champs Traversins): Bright, dark red. Expressive, highly perfumed aromas of black cherry, red licorice, rose petal, lavender and wild herbs. Tightly wound and energetic, showing terrific lift and an almost weightless impression to the flavors of red berries, spices and flowers. Has the fruit intensity to support its firm, dusty tannins. Quite unevolved today, but this wine only finished its malolactic fermentation in August.

Juicy, tight and youthfully imploded but already hinting at compelling sweetness of fruit.
