While not especially powerful, it offers solid concentration and fine length. One of the better de Vogüé Amoureuses in recent years and shows particularly good balance and a fine sense of "pinot noirness".

  • Tasting note: (harvested on September 25th). This most recent bottle was displaying quite a bit of brett and while it did not render the wine undrinkable, it wasn't what it should have been. I would note that the wine seemed to be completely ready. Not Rated.
    From a note taken in November 2007: Here the nose has turned almost completely secondary and is actually, and unusually so for the vintage, a bit animale in character with ripe and spicy sous-bois notes that introduce very rich and concentrated flavors that are vibrant, punchy and detailed while exhibiting an attractive touch of minerality on the strikingly long finish. This is an impressively constituted '96 with solid phenolic maturity and the overall impression is a wine that is still relatively youthful. 92/2013+

    Tasting note: This has always been an elegant wine and it remains one with its gorgeously perfumed and beautifully layered aromas of spicy secondary fruit, earth and a hint of sandalwood. There is an equally lovely inner mouth perfume to the chiseled, intense and stony lighter weight flavors that possess a silky texture that is not confirmed by the finish as the latter is somewhat drying and puckery. As the description suggests, this has obvious attributes but unfortunately the dryness is only likely to become more pronounced and thus I would advise drinking up.

  • Saturated red-ruby color. Black raspberry, coffee, iron, minerals and an intriguing vegetal complexity on the nose. Very sweet, even thick, and strong in extract, but a bit tough today and dominated by its acidity and mineral underpinning. But already shows great verve and an extremely long, strong finish. One for the cellar.

The class of the cellar in terms of concentration, sweetness, finesse and length; in fact, today this wine makes Geantet's '95 seem almost heavy in comparison. Lovely roundness and clarity of flavor. Really explodes on the palate-staining finish.

The big, dusty tannins spread out to coat the entire palate, with the red berry and mineral flavors mounting slowly and lingering impressively. The crop level here was just under 30 hectoliters per hectare, according to Fourrier.

Red Burgundy Engel, Rene 1998 Grands Echezeaux

1 Case 6 75cl £7,500
  •  Burghound Tasting note: I hadn't tried this since 2005 and time has been highly beneficial as the wood it still displayed has now been entirely absorbed which more easily allowed the spicy aromas of mostly secondary fruit scents to shine. The big, rich and still moderately structured flavors offer very solid concentration and excellent complexity, all wrapped in a lingering and well-balanced finale. For my taste this robust and muscular effort has just arrived on the front edge of its peak drinkability and it should easily be capable of holding here for years to come.

Very intense fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry, complicated by a note of dark chocolate. Muscular but broad and pliant.

    Note: a miniscule 18 hl/ha from 70 year old vines and 100% new oak
    Producer note: Bernard Dugat has once again fashioned some of the best wines of the vintage. The wines are dramatic, bold, rich, nuanced, superbly dense and yet for all this, reflect reasonably well their underlying terroirs. He has added a new wine to his range with a one-third hectare parcel of 75-year-old Vosne villages vines; this brings the size of the Domaine to slightly over 7 hectares. The cheerful, friendly Bernard proudly told me that 1999 represents the 25th vintage for him.
    He is very excited about his 99s and rightly so. His approach to the vintage was largely the same as usual which chez Dugat means that Bernard destemmed 70 to 75% of the fruit, did not cold macerate, had a total cuvaison of 20 to 22 days and was neither obliged to chaptalize or acidulate (the wines have natural alcohol levels of around 13%). He varied the amount of new oak considerably, depending on the cru in question. As the scores and notes indicate, these are some of the most exciting wines made anywhere in the Côte. 

    Tasting note: Extremely ripe fruit, intense yet round flavors of Gevrey earth and soil undertones and big, ripe tannins. The old vines character is quite evident and the length here is extraordinary. Another gorgeous villages.

    The Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru 1999 is deep in color. It has a lovely savory bouquet with hints of Italian cured meats and bacon fat intermingling with briary scents, all with really impressive intensity. The palate is full-bodied and well balanced. There is clearly a bit of sinew here. Truffle and sappy black fruit form the second half with a saline note urging another sip toward the finish. This punches above my expectations, though I would be tempted to keep bottles down in the bunker for another three or four years. Like many 1999s, this is in for the long haul.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 1999 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

9 Bottle 75cl £875
  • Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru

    (tasted from a 375-milliter bottle): Very bright red with ruby tones; looks like a young wine. Deep, dark red and black fruit aromas are complicated by cinnamon, black pepper, roast coffee and a hint of truffley underbrush. Wonderfully rich but classy and reserved, and not a bit heavy. Utterly silky, plush, energetic wine with a relaxed quality to its lively dark fruit and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes classically dry, with beautifully buffered tannins and captivating building sweetness. Amazingly, this 375-milliliter bottle seems still short of its peak, so I would imagine that well-stored 750s still need time. I'd guess 2022-2042 for 750s.

    -- Stephen Tanzer 97 Stephen Tanzer 2018 - 2034 Not Available Mar 2018

    Burghound Tasting note: In contrast to the general style of the vintage, this is still aromatically austere though with coaxing, reveals wonderfully complex aromas of an incredible array of black fruits, earth, spice, crushed herbs and notes of chocolate. The imposingly-scaled flavors are huge but refined, powerful but subtle and rich yet detailed with a stupendously long finish that offers intense minerality where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This is genuinely stunning juice and not to be missed though I underscore that it is most definitely in need of further cellar time. Tasted multiple times with mostly consistent notes save for one bottle that displayed noticeable volatile acidity that may have been due to a faulty cork while another example displayed distinct lactic aromas.

    Producer note: Jean-Marie Fourrier candidly explained that because there was so much rot in '00, he was obliged to treat his vines more than he prefers but that the green harvest helped not only eliminate excess crop but improved aeration as well, helping to keep the rot to manageable levels. Berry size was much bigger in '00 than in '99, and even after dropping a lot of crop, he didn't feel as though he had sufficient dry exact for the amount of juice and thus he did a saignée of between 5 to 8% for some wines. He also did more pigeage (punch downs) than normal; this is to say a whopping 4 times per day!
    He also explained that the fermentations started almost immediately even though he had cooled the must to 12 degrees Centigrade. The malos were slow to begin as they didn't start until April and lasted as late as August. Since 97 he has tried not to rack his wines at all and these '00s had not been racked once, not even after the malos when the first racking typically occurs. He believes that extended aging on the lees produces more glycerol as well as keeps the wines very fresh.
    Fourrier says that precision of fruit is what he was searching for with his 2000s as he is impressed with the vintage's purity. They will be bottled around April with no fining or filtration because he believes that almost every vintage needs an additional 6 to 8 months of élevage after the malos are finished. As an aside, Fourrier works as much as possible with CO2 and thus recommends decanting all of his wines before serving them; the rationale behind this is that he believes that the gas is a powerful preserver of wines and will keep them fresh longer while the tannic structure resolves itself.
    The style of the Fourrier '00s is all about elegance and finesse. They are not particularly dense and certainly not over extracted or manipulated and few producers achieve this level of elegance, purity of fruit and impeccable balance.
    Tasting note: Strikingly elegant nose of earth, pure pinot fruit and touch of game followed by sappy, gorgeously intense, mouth coating flavors of outstanding precision with a strong, persistent finish. The detail this delivers is really impressive and this will challenge the Rousseau as to which Clos St. Jacques is the best in '00.

    Full ruby. Knockout nose of cassis, leather, game, flowers, minerals and coffee. Offers great sweetness and tensile strength; a highly concentrated yet subtle wine with a very strong spine.

    Producer note: Corinne Rousseau commented that the 2001s were extremely slow to develop as they were extremely tight, very structured and unforthcoming when they were first racked into barrel. "Unlike some domaines, we had minimal rot, probably because we again did a severe green harvest". She characterizes the vintage as "a very good one and 1993 is probably the best comparison as it behaved just like 2001 when it was at this stage". Rousseau believes that the bottling will be pushed back slightly from July to August and the wines will not be fined but will be filtered. (Frederick Wildman and Sons, New York, NY)
    Tasting note: This too is quite soft with the classic sauvage and animale notes and slightly bigger, weightier flavors that deliver more flavor authority and punch if not as much elegance. Nicely concentrated with buried tannins and good length plus lovely finishing harmony.

Red Burgundy Comtes Armand 2001 Pommard 1er Cru Epeneaux

1 Bottle 75cl £115
  • It's clear that this wine has not budged since I originally reviewed it from bottle in 2004, except perhaps that the nose has closed in on itself somewhat. Wonderfully complex aromas of ripe red and black fruit, crushed herbs and fresh berries with unmistakable earth aromas merge into medium-bodied, powerful, concentrated and vibrant flavors that are firmly structured but not overtly tannic with plenty of underlying material and sappy extract that still buffers the majority of the structure and imparts a velvety character to the precise, minerally and admirably persistent finish. This is an extremely impressive effort that just needs time to soften and broaden as it remains tight and linear.

    Outstanding

    Producer note: Mme Bize reports that her yields in 2001 were lower than in 2000, averaging only 17 hl/ha compared to the prior vintage's yields of between 20 and 22 hl/ha. As was the case for the 2000 vintage, Domaines Leroy and d'Auvenay elected to bottle quite early; just before the harvest for the 2001s and in early November for the 2000s. When I inquired as to why she elected to bottle so early, the response was essentially that it was to "preserve freshness and to use even less SO2". I tasted the Domaine Leroy wines in late November and I will taste the Domaine d'Auvenay wines in February (a report on which will appear in Issue 10).
    The Leroy 2001s are, in a word, incredible and in most cases, clearly better than her very impressive 2000s. Mme Bize summarizes the two vintages by saying "2000 is bigger but 2001 is finer and more precise". I have commented in the past that the quality of the tannic structure of the Leroy wines seems to become ever finer with each passing vintage and so it is again in 2001. Moreover, there is a purity and remarkable texture to the wines that seems even more pronounced and perhaps because the ripeness was not as high in 2001 that the wines appear to be even more transparent to their respective terroirs than usual. In fact, when taken as a whole from the top to the bottom of the Leroy range, this may rival the 1993 vintage as her finest ever. Such comparisons aside, what is absolutely clear is that this is a knock out set of wines and despite the often painful prices, it is unquestionably a vintage to buy at least a few bottles because the wines are unquestionably sensational. Note: I will review the d'Auvenay reds in the next Issue. (Martine's Wines, Novato, California)
    Tasting note: The first wine to display even a hint of toast with slightly ashy notes and combines opulent, pure, very spicy and very ripe black fruit aromas and mouth coating, beautifully textured, velvety flavors and astounding persistence. This is an ever-so-slightly more complete wine than the Brulées and while the ash notes would usually be of concern, there is so much concentration and power here that I have no doubt that the toast will successfully integrate.

This can't quite match the complexity of the Bonnes Mares but it is even more elegant and certainly finer but not necessarily better, just different.

  • Deep ruby-red. Expressive aromas of blackberry liqueur, bitter chocolate and coffee; more open than the Corbeaux today. Then superripe in the mouth but a bit less forthcoming, with explosive, surprisingly primary flavors of blackberry and dark chocolate. Boasts a huge middle, especially for a Bachelet wine, but also more finesse than the Corbeaux. This reminded me a bit of a top pinot from the Sonoma Coast. Spreads out to coat the entire palate and mounts slowly and inexorably on the back. A very deep, black fruit-dominated Charmes that's quite fresh for the year. Lay this down for a few years or give it time in a decanter.
