Allen Meadows' Burghound, April 2007
A completely different nose is present
as the concentrated fruit aromas are quite ripe but somber and reserved
with a deft touch of wood lurking in the background, leading to rich,
full and borderline robust flavors that are obviously structured yet the
very firm tannins are buried beneath an impressive amount of mid-palate
sÃ¨ve. A serious Beaune built to last at least two decades.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar,
Good ruby-red. Dark cherry, plum liqueur,
meat, leather and spices on the nose. Round, lush and rather full in the
mouth (this is 14% alcohol), with a soft, very ripe plum flavor and very
sweet tannins. This persistent wine is also likely to give early pleasure
but has the stuffing to age. 88-91 points
