Chambertin Clos de Beze ( owc 6-pack ) - Jadot, Louis

75 IB 0 6 - 305
Tasting Notes for Chambertin Clos de Beze ( owc 6-pack ) - Jadot, Louis, 2005:
Deep black cherry, charred meatiness, rose and licorice give away the identity of Jadot’s 2005 Chambertin Clos de Beze. Firm tannins and mouth-filling but bitter black cherry fruit, along with black licorice, wet stones, smoky black tea and Latakia tobacco feature on the palate, and there is a savage grip in the the finish. This lacks the refinement and elegance of many of the best 2005s from this great site, but bids fair to make up for this in sheer intensity and mysteriously complex depth. Here is a potentially ageless wine that doesn’t merely typify the dark side of 2005, but is a veritable Darth Vader of the vintage. Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth, but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines, which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these — particularly from the Cote de Beaune — displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration, traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites. A brief July rain that reached the Cote de Nuits but not the Cote de Beaune was critical, he asserts, and all of Jadot’s vines in the northern Cote were picked before the harvest in the south commenced.

Clos de la Roche - Rousseau, Armand

75 DP 0 3 - 325
Tasting Notes for Clos de la Roche - Rousseau, Armand, 2005:
Rousseau’s 2005 Clos de la Roche offers a nose of ripe cherries, cedar and brown spices, a rich and expansive palate, and a sweet, pure, juicy finish of cherry, boysenberry, toasty, crusty pastry, hints of caramel, a whiff of wood smoke and a lick of salt. For purity of fruit and intensity allied to formidable extract and superb, lattice-like structure, it’s hard to beat this wine as a candidate for at least a couple of decades in the cellar, one to check up on in eight or ten years. With Eric Rousseau taking over increasingly from his father Charles, bottling may end up being slightly earlier than in the past, but such routine features as triage exclusively in the vineyards (not the press house), the inclusion of whole clusters and stems, precocious malolactic fermentation (although in 2005 and 2006, at least, Rousseau says he didn’t force this), reliance on older barrels, and an eventual light plaque filtration for all wines remain as before. Given the long-running success of these Pinots in subtly yet insistently conveying the distinct personalities of their sites and standing the test of time, some might well ask Ŕwhy change the recipe?ő while others will wonder whether the wines could be made even better. In any event, nature conspired to hand the new generation a vintage of historic dimensions. Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

Clos Vougeot ( oc 6-packs ) - Arnoux, Robert

75 IB 1 0 1450 -
Tasting Notes for Clos Vougeot ( oc 6-packs ) - Arnoux, Robert, 2005:
The Arnoux 2005 Clos de Vougeot offers cedary, resinous, cassis, and blackberry aromas. Beef marrow and sweet black fruits mingle on a relatively firm, broad palate wherein a hint of wood shavings can be detected. The finish stirs interest in and hope for this wine as it is energetic and quite freshly fruited, if (at least as yet) rather coarsely tannic. Certainly one could expect this to need considerable bottle age to reveal its full potential. Also recommended: 2005 Bourgogne (85). Pascal Lachaux (the late Robert Arnoux’s son-in-law, who has been in charge here now for nearly two decades) had just bottled his 2005 collection — vinified in his superb, recently-completed, gravity-fed facilities — when I visited. Lachaux compares the proper watchword of the winemaker in a vintage with Pinot as healthy and naturally-concentrated as in 2005, to that of a chef confronted with a perfect piece of fish: restraint. That also describes the results he has achieved in bottle, although allowance should be made for the possibility that the expression of certain wines was restrained by their recent bottling.

Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques - Jadot, Louis

75 DP 1 0 2300 -
Tasting Notes for Gevrey Chambertin Clos St Jacques - Jadot, Louis, 2005:
The Jadot 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques smells of black cherry, charred beef, high-toned cherry pit and almond as well as of an alkaline and wet stone minerality. It has density and real grip on the palate, displaying low-toned meatiness and smoky, stony, salty minerality in its long finish. And for all of this wine’s manifest extract and tannin, it displays a flattering creaminess of texture that few of Jadot’s wines possess. Jacques Lardiere has once again presided over a collection for the most part not intended to flatter in its youth, but rather to achieve an eventual balance of fruit acidity with (in this instance frequently quite prominent) tannin. Prolonged post-fermentative extraction promoted a formidably-structured group of wines, which Lardiere expressed no hurry about bottling. Certain of these — particularly from the Cote de Beaune — displayed a slightly drying finishing astringency or simply an austere lack of charm to match their concentration, traits Lardiere suggested might be traceable to drought stress in those sites.

La Romanee ( owc 6-pack ) - Bouchard Pere et Fils

75 IB 0 6 - 1425
Tasting Notes for La Romanee ( owc 6-pack ) - Bouchard Pere et Fils, 2005:
The Bouchard 2005 Vosne-Romanee Les Suchots displays dark cherry and subtly meaty aromas, along with hints of spice and cocoa powder that seem to typify ripe vintages from this site. Juicy, supple and satisfying on the palate with lots of raw ripe fruit intensity and spice as well as satisfying low-toned richness, this is very fine indeed, if not in a league with the best Suchots of the vintage (and there are numerous stellar examples — including those of a surprisingly large number of negociants now sourcing from this site). Managing director Stephane Follin and cellar master Philippe Prost preside over a remarkable new, gravity-fed winemaking facility capable of handling the fruits of Bouchard’s 130 hectares of vines — Burgundy’s largest estate (with 84 hectares in premier and grand crus alone) — not to mention the enormous range of wine from purchased fruit or wines. Fully 40% of the reds are vinified in open-top fermenters with manual punch-downs (the balance in a battery of roto-fermentors) and the system of traffic control alone that must be in place during crush is hard to imagine. The underground acreage devoted to barriques similarly defies imagination — until one sees it. Prost was very cautious with pigeage this year, but incorporated a significant percentage of whole clusters with stems in many of his better lots. A reputation for improved quality is being built here to which the results of 2005 will certainly contribute. I suspect that a number of the wines I tasted had not recovered from their recent bottling, hence the number of Ŕ+?ős one sees displayed following my scores. Wine Advocate # 171 Jun 2007
