    Tasting note: A fully mature but not post-mature nose that is clearly very ripe offers up aromas warm earth, sous-bois, very subtle spice hints and an interesting sauvage note that also infuses the rich, full, delicious and relatively powerful broad-shouldered flavors that possess good mid-palate density and natural sweetness yet finish with outstanding intensity and just a bit of the classic austerity of a typical Clos de Vougeot. Note that because the reviews of this wine from 750 ml format (see herein) were recently released by Remoissenet, they actually drank as well as the same wine from magnum that had not been as pristinely stored.

Red Burgundy Leroy 1978 Vosne Romanee 1er Cru

1 Case 6 75cl £5,850
  • Maison Leroy release: Bricked completely through to the center. Despite the total bricking, there is still a sense of freshness to the wonderfully spicy and expressive nose that is now largely dominated by sous bois-infused aromas and this sense of vibrancy continues onto the minerally and beautifully detailed flavors that finish with first rate complexity and excellent length. If there is a nit, it's that the is a very subtle touch of dryness that does not pose a problem over the next few years but probably will in time. This is a really impressive effort that is very Vosne in character. Tasted three times with consistent results.

    115, The Wine Advocate

    Displaying candied nuts on the nose, the Meursault Clos De La Barre is an absolutely delicious, expansive, rich, elegant and well-defined wine. Sweet layers of toasty and buttered brioches, hazelnuts, poached pears, spices, and traces of anise are found in this medium-to-full-bodied, velvety-textured, and superbly-balanced wine. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2006. The rating, with the range of scores in parentheses, indicates the wine was tasted from cask, not bottle. Dominique Lafon performed more batonnage than usual on his 1996s, "to give them more richness," he said. However, unlike some other vignerons, Lafon abandons the practice when the malos start because he wants his wines to be protected by the carbon dioxide gas that is a by product of a wine's malo-lactic fermentation. Lafon's yields were between 35 and 45 hectoliters/hectare, demonstrating his dedication to quality in this potentially high-yielding vintage.

    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.

    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.

    Note: from a .60 ha parcel
    Producer note: As is his usual practice, Laurent Ponsot was one of the very latest growers to pick, telling me that he didn't start until "September 7th. Nothing was normal this year but the '03s are absolutely fantastic. The hardest thing to do was not to get excessively jammy wines. Amazingly, one of my neighbors picked his Clos de la Roche on August 14th yet I didn't pick mine until September 14! His sugar readings were only 10.5% - I know because I asked. There was rain on August 31st and it saved us because it jump started the cycle of photosynthesis all over again and because of the small crop, we gained a lot of sugar quickly. By waiting the extra month, all of my wines came in between 13 and 14%, which is where they should be. Our yields however were abysmal as we realized fully two-thirds less than a normal crop, and I already crop low. I didn't chaptalize and I absolutely did not acidify. Besides, acidities went up during the fermentation as the dried berries released acidity into the musts. And I'm proud to say that I did the same amount of punching down as usual and I didn't alter the total cuvaison either. I also have not racked the wines at all but I will bottle them a good deal earlier than usual, which is to say January rather than July. Some wines are not reviewed, most notably the Clos St. Denis Vieilles Vignes because there was only one barrel and as Ponsot correctly notes, "what am I going to top up with if I keep offering samples?" (Vineyard Brands, Birmingham, AL and Atherton Wine Imports, Atherton, CA; Morris & Verdin, Goedhuis & Co., Ballantynes, Lay and Wheeler and Rare & Fine Wine Co., all UK).
    Tasting note: This is really quite pretty too but it can't match the depth and explosive quality of the Griotte. Still, there is good complexity on the high-toned red fruit nose cut with an almost pungently earthy character followed by a very fresh, intense and precise palate impression and fine length. In short, this is an exceptionally refined wine that will also require plenty of time.

    The highly expressive aromas of the 2002 Meursault display spicy pears and buttered toast. Medium-bodied and boasting a fabulous silky mouth-feel, this wine slathers the palate with hazelnut cream and poached pears.

    Producer note: Jacques Seysses, and his son Jeremy who is responsible for the Fils et Père and the white wines, said that they had an extended harvest which began on August 25th and continued until September 8th, noting that "sugars were exceptional, coming in between 13 and 15.5%. The vintage was an intellectual challenge because at first it wasn't entirely evident as to which way we should go given the characteristics of the raw materials the vintage gave us. We decided to go with a short, fast and high intensity fermentation with more punch downs than usual but over a shorter period, which is to say 4 times a day but only for 10 days rather than 14. Yields were down fully 50% and to better manage the lack of volume, we did 100% whole cluster fermentations (no destemming). We did correct the acidities for some wines though interestingly, we found that acidities actually rose during fermentations. The sugars were sufficiently high that a number of wines actually finished their fermentations in barrel because we didn't want to leave the musts in contact with the pomace for too long a time. We also used a bit more new oak than usual though this was as much a function of the reduced quantities than any particular desire to use more wood. We'll bottle in January as usual as we see no reason to rush matters." The Dujac '02s reviewed here all came in at the top of their predicted ranges and they are, as a group, extremely impressive. (Wilson-Daniels Ltd., St. Helena, CA and Chambers & Chambers, San Francisco, CA for southern California; Morris & Verdin, O.W. Loeb, Howard Ripley and Lay & Wheeler, UK).
    Maison Dujac Fils et Père:
    Tasting note: Very heavy reductive notes presently hide the nose but the flavors are fresh, intense and beautifully textured as the sap buffers the firm and ripe tannins. Like the Charmes, this is a big wine by the usual standards of Clos St. Denis with ample power and volume with a palate staining finish and length to burn.

Given how many reference standard vintages Domaine Ponsot has produced of the Clos de la Roche over the years, it would be presumptuous to anoint this as the best ever but if it isn't, it will certainly take its rightful place among the very greatest. In sum, a 'wow' wine that makes you shake your head in sheer amazement. However be aware that this is a buy and forget wine as it will require at least 15 years to shed its considerable tannins and it will see 50 years without difficulty.

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.

    Tasted blind, the 2005 Meursault Villages is maturing nicely, although whether it will repay continued cellaring is another matter. It has a very pure bouquet of light honey, indicative of a benevolent growing season, hints of pressed flowers and pralines developing with time. The palate is well-balanced, and under blind conditions, I was not the only one suggesting premier cru quality (a testament to the craftsmanship of Dominique Lafon). It is very harmonious and with aeration the wood component becomes just a little conspicuous, but you cannot dislike the orange zest on the pert finish. Drink now-2017. Tasted March 2014.

    189, The Wine Advocate

    Mugnier’s wines of the vintage, his 2007 Musigny exudes ripe, vanilla- and star anise-tinged black raspberry and cassis, underlain by clean, marrow-like meatiness. Already satiny in texture, yet buoyant, this finishes with dark-fruited, forest floor-inflected, palate-staining persistence yet a soothing, enveloping personality that is anything but palate-straining. Even though this is an unusually approachable example of its kind, few Burgundian Pinots of its vintage, I suspect, will justify the 15 or more years of glory that I would anticipate from this Musigny. Frederic Mugnier’s 2008s – which I last tasted shortly before their March bottling – did not experience the exceptionally late malo-lactic transformation that characterized so many wines of that vintage. Yields were especially low thanks not only to vintage-typical millerandage, but – particularly in the case of Les Amoureuses – to the vines’ slow recovery from the shock of 2007 hail.

    Tasting note: A restrained, airy, clean, bright and beautifully layered nose features red pinot, violets, spice and mineral notes that complement perfectly the seductively textured medium full flavors that display a taut muscularity and superb focus on the refined and firmly structured finish. I particularly like the intensity and drive and this should reward about a decade of patient cellaring. A Musigny of harmony and grace.

If there is a nit it is that this doesn't possess the complexity of the best 1ers here though the track record of this wine is such that I wouldn't bet against it developing materially more complexity in the bottle.

    Producer note: Eric Rousseau's take on the 2009 vintage was that "we had a normal winter that wasn't too cold followed by a humid but warm spring. The flowering was uniform and abundant and the summer was much better than average. In fact, I'd like to have a summer like this every year! We did have some early season hail in Clos de la Roche but the effect was on quantity and not quality. I began picking on the 7th of September and brought in generous yields that ranged from a low of 35 hl/ha to a high of 48 hl/ha. There was a normal incidence of shot berries though I heard some of my neighbors say that they had lots. Potential alcohols were solid but not really high at between 12.5 and 13.5% and the acidities were basically ideal. I did a classic vinification of 16 to 20 days with the only exception being that I used a higher proportion of whole clusters, which is to say 15 to 20% versus my usual 5 to 10%. [Rousseau noted that because of the hail, he used no whole clusters for the Clos de la Roche]. For me, 2009 is a genuinely great vintage as the wines have really elegant tannins that remind me of the 1985s or the 1990s. Because of their charm and velvety textures, the wines should drink well from the beginning." Rousseau noted that he used no new wood at all except for the Clos St. Jacques, Chambertin and Clos de Bèze.

Loeb, www.owloeb.com, UK and Justerini & Brooks, www.justerinis.com, UK).
    Tasting note: This is every bit as elegant as the Clos St. Jacques but even deeper and broader with incredibly complex and refined red berry fruit, plum and violet aromas that are relatively cool and are in keeping with the balanced, refined and mouth coating flavors that possess superb depth and excellent finishing intensity on the explosive and gorgeously persistent finish. This is a really lovely '08 that should improve for out to two decades.

    Tasting note: A still mildly toasty nose features remarkably dense yet elegant aromas of deeply pitched yet extremely cool and restrained red and blue fruit aromas that are nuanced by a broad range of earth, game and underbrush hints. There is an utterly beguiling purity to the relatively refined but muscular medium full-bodied plus flavors that are strikingly complex, vibrant and perfectly balanced before culminating in a gorgeously long finish. This is brimming with upside development potential and while it too will require plenty of patience, its class and grace are such that it can be enjoyed now though I would strongly counsel waiting. In a word, magnificent. Tasted thrice recently with consistent notes.

Red Burgundy Romanee Conti 2008 La Tache

[owc]

1 Case 3 75cl £9,850
  • Tasting note: This takes a while to get going because like the Richebourg, this is initially reduced so you'll need to decant it if you're going to sacrifice a young wine on the altar of curiosity. After aggressive swirling, a highly expressive and kaleidoscopic nose offers up a dazzling breadth of aromas with more rose petal and violet notes combining with those of kirsch, herb and humus, all of which are reflected by the ripe, pure and extremely fresh silkily-textured big-bodied flavors that possess firm tannins that are completely enrobed by the impressive amount of extract that also coats the mouth on the hugely long and ever-so-slightly minty finish. The '08 La Tâche is not an especially powerful wine by its standards and it's more like a gymnast with its sleek muscularity. That said and again like the Richebourg, all of the structural elements are not yet in perfect balance but the sheer length of the finish is immense, which is always a very positive sign.

    Note: from a .7 ha parcel that was partially replanted in 1985 and the remainder in 1989
    Producer note: Bernard Gros calls 2009 a "very, very good vintage. Mother Nature spoiled us with very ripe and impeccably clean fruit. I began picking on the 10th of September and brought in a crop that averaged between 13 and 14% potential alcohols. With the clones that my vineyards were planted with in the 1980s, they ripen almost one week earlier than traditionally planted vineyards. I concentrated many of the wines about 5%. Otherwise, the vinification was straightforward as everything was perfectly ripe. I think 2009 is going to be a very popular vintage as there is nothing not to like." As to the Gros in-bottle '08s, they have turned out about where my predicted ranges suggested that they would. (Atherton Wine Imports, www.awiwine.com, Atherton, CA; Metro Wine, NY and Stacole Wines, www.stacolewines.com, FL; no sanctioned UK importers).
    Tasting note: The most elegant nose in the range displays almost invisible wood and superbly complex blue and black pinot fruit liberally laced with notes of hoisin, soy, clove and anise, all of which also appear on the suave, round and opulent well-muscled flavors that are extremely seductive, even velvety on the mouth coating, focused, linear and palate staining finish. The tannins are not as refined as the nose is but overall, this appears to offer excellent potential in a more forward though age-worthy style.

Red Burgundy Bouchard Pere 2009 Bonnes Mares

1 Case 6 75cl £1,075
  • Tasting note: In contrast to many of the wines in the range that are quite expressive, this is actually quite reticent if not downright mute with very ripe but elusive aromas of mocha, plum and spicy cassis. The extremely rich, powerful and concentrated big-bodied flavors possess a suave mouth feel as the sap almost completely buffers the unusually generous but quite serious and long finish. This is a classic Bonnes Mares in terms of its underlying architecture and should require between 15 and 20 years to be at its best.

  • 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.

  • Tasting note: In stark contrast to the fresh, bright and expressive nose that I saw from cask, this has shut down hard and while persistent swirling and plenty air coaxes subtle spice notes as well as plum and red cherry to emerge, it's clear that this is going to require some bottle age before it blossoms. Otherwise there is fine concentration to the medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate on the delicious, complex, balanced and lingering finish that evidences very firm tannins that impart a notable austerity. A "buy and forget" wine built for the long-term.

There is good richness and vibrancy to the solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess plenty of tannin-buffering dry extract though the palate impression of the finish is still quite firm, all wrapped in a backend that delivers excellent persistence. This is a bit more rough and tumble than one typically sees from a classic Griotte though it does not display any overt rusticity

    Producer note: Louis-Michel Liger-Belair told me that 2010 fashioned "superbly elegant and exceptionally fresh wines but unfortunately there isn't a lot of them. We lost some yield due to the frost but it was mostly limited to the vines at the bottom of La Colombière. The poor flowering though contributed the most to the loss of yield and all told we were down about 30% relative to what we obtained in 2009. I elected to begin picking on the 26th of September and while the fruit was really quite clean, it still required some sorting though no more or no less than usual. I strongly believe in thoroughly sorting everything no matter the vintage as it's the little details that can make a big difference. Potential alcohols were very good if not high and ranged between 12 and 13%. As to the wines, I very much like them as they reflect their individual terroirs clearly. If I had to try to describe 2010 in terms of vintage comparisons, I would say that it is a blend of the styles of 2001 and 2008." As the scores and comments suggest, the now in-bottle '09s have also turned out extremely well and a number of them are really quite stunning. (A Becky Wasserman Selection/Le Serbet, www.leserbet.com, Beaune, France; additional distributors include Veritas Imports, www.veritaswine.com, CA/NV/AZ/NM and USA Wine Imports, www.usawineimports.com, NY, NY for "Selection Pas Mal", New York, NY; Justerini & Brooks, www.justerinis.com, UK and Richards Walford & Co., Ltd., www.r-w.co.uk, UK).
    Tasting note: Initially a mild touch of reduction mutes the nose but some aggressive swirling quickly releases a kaleidoscopically broad range of spice nuances that add real breadth to the ultra-elegant, ripe and quite pure aromas of red pinot, plum and cassis that precede the rich, full and silky medium-bodied flavors that are discreet yet powerful and superbly persistent. This is an exceptionally stylish and classy wine that is supported by ultra-fine tannins and the hallmark finishing austerity. While the '09 La Romanée is essentially a wine of finesse it doesn't mean that it isn't built to age because it more assuredly is, indeed it will require at least 20 years to arrive at its peak.

Red Burgundy de Vogue 2009 Musigny Vieilles Vignes

1 Case 6 75cl £3,825
  • The 2009 Musigny Vieilles Vignes fleshes out beautifully with endless layers of fruit that caress the palate in stunning style. Sweet floral notes meld into expressive dark red fruit in this mysterious, evocative Burgundy. There is a weightless intensity to the Musigny that is achingly gorgeous. Waves of flavor continue to build towards the sexy, racy finish as the 2009 shows off its pedigree. The 2009 will always be an exuberant Musigny, but time in bottle will help shed some of the baby fat. This is likely to be a great, great wine for several decades.

  • Here the notably ripe nose offers up liqueur-like dark berry fruit aromas that leads to big, rich and overtly bold and still compact large-scaled flavors that evidence obvious muscle and power before culminating in a very firm, intense, explosive and driving finish that delivers outstanding length. This is a formidable wine with dense and mouth coating tannins that will require at least 15 years to fully resolve and 20 would not surprise me. Note that unlike some of these '09s, this is very definitely not for early consumption as it is presently almost aggressively austere.

    This is also remarkably fresh with very ripe but not over ripe aromas of cassis, spice, stone and raspberry liqueur.

    Tasting note: A more aromatically complex nose offers up notes of fresh and exuberant red berry fruit that is liberally laced with warm earth and animale nuances that carry over to the rich and attractively voluminous flavors blessed with an abundance of dry extract that buffers well the firm tannic spine on the delicious, balanced and sappy finish. This is more approachable than it usually is at this early stage though it will have no trouble aging well.

    Producer note: Eric Rousseau's take on the 2010 vintage was "almost every aspect was marked by the weather and most of it wasn't favorable. The night of the 19th of December 2009 had a 15° C drop in just a few hours that caused the sap in the vines to freeze, expand and ultimately kill many vines. We certainly had some of our villages vineyards hit relatively hard. Then the weather was cool and wet during the flowering which caused a lot of shot berries to materialize, which of course was the major driver of the lower yields. In fact we had the lowest yields in 2010 that we have had during the entire decade and I include 2003 in that comparison. Our yields varied between 20 and 30 hl/ha but on the other hand, it is almost a certainty that without the low crop levels we never would have had sufficiently ripe fruit. I didn't wait very long to begin picking and began on the 22nd of September and picked until October 2nd. There was some sorting work for under ripe berries but really no more than usual. Sugars were very good and ranged from 12 to 13.5%. The harvest weather was also very cool and it took a bit longer to get the fermentations to begin but after that I did my normal vinification. Right after the fermentations were finished the temperatures fell even further which means that the cellars cooled off earlier than usual. This had the effect of delaying the onset of the malos and since there was a lot of malic acid, the malos were long and slow. I don't know about elsewhere but here at the domaine 2010 is a really beautiful vintage. There is tension and verve to the wines and they make me think of the 2008s but with better density and riper tannins. And unlike the 2008s, I don't think that the 2010s will close up once they're in bottle." As to the now in-bottle '09s, they confirmed the seriously impressive quality that they displayed at this time last year. But as good as they are, and they are sensational, the Rousseau '10s are also amazing, in particular the Chambertin which is utterly brilliant. Rousseau noted that he used no new wood at all except for the Clos St. Jacques, Chambertin and Clos de Bèze.

    Tasting note: This is quite ripe yet the impression is one of freshness with no surmaturité while the aromas reveal an exuberant spiciness to the dense mix of red and black fruit and wet stone aromas. The supple, round and marvelously well-detailed broad-shouldered flavors possess a silky mid-palate brimming with dry extract on the almost painfully intense and massively long mineral-driven finish that displays stunning persistence. The 2009 is an impeccably well-balanced effort in yet another in a long line of great vintages for this storied wine.
