Chambolle Musigny Les Cras - Roumier, Georges

75 IB 0 4 - 220
Tasting Notes for Chambolle Musigny Les Cras - Roumier, Georges, 2005:
The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras smells of ripe blackberry, raspberry, forest floor and chalk dust. A polished, creamy, yet palpably chalky and brightly fresh-fruited palate offers a sumptuous saturation of black and red fruits with inner-mouth aromatic accents of cherry pit, pistachio, flowers and citrus zest. This shows wonderful primary fruit intensity and energy, exciting length, and the promise of continued poise and polish for at least another 10-12 years. One senses that Christophe Roumier considers 2005 a high point of his career, and my visit with him was among the high points of my recent trip. He describes this as ┘a classic vintage lending itself to very calm, classic vinification,╬ which given the opportunities afforded by perfectly healthy, firm, dry, ripe fruit involved triage almost solely to remove ladybugs, and included around 25% whole clusters in the fermenters at the Premier Cru level and 50% at that of Grand Cru.

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 2 - 410
Tasting Notes for Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude, 1993:
The Charmes-Chambertin (165 cases for the world) boasts layers of flavor, a saturated deep ruby/purple color, a huge attack, considerable tannin and muscle, as well as an inner sweetness and that profound mid-palate not found in many 1993s. This wine has it all - ripeness, richness, structure, purity, and complexity. Cellar it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 10-15. As the ratings attest, Claude Dugat, working in his 13th century abbey/wine cellar called Cellier des Dimes, hit several home runs in the 1993 vintage. His whole berry fermentation provides more fruit, but in his modest manner, Claude takes no credit for what are once again profound red Burgundies. No wonder when Lalou Bize-Leroy purchased wine for her negociant firm, she made this cellar one of her frequent stops.Wine Advocate # 100 Aug 1995

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude

75 IB 0 1 - 425
Tasting Notes for Charmes Chambertin - Dugat, Claude, 1996:
have no argument with anyone who states that this wine merits a perfect score. It is a dark ruby/purple-colored wine that regales the olfactory senses with sweet and perfumed red and black cherry scents that are lively, profound, and verging on jammy - reminiscent of the filling of a deep dish cherry pie. On the palate, this wondrous wine's combination of super-ripe candied red fruits and violets with virtually perfect precision and purity of flavors is mind-boggling. This complex, velvety-textured, chewy, and delineated wine is utterly extraordinary and other-worldly. What remains to be said about this wine crafted by the shy, self-effacing, and ever-smiling Claude Dugat? Well, it might be getting even better. While still having the opulence of fruit and suppleness that have made his wines renowned throughout the world, this wine appears to have more structure. My instincts have, in the past, been that Dugat's wines were best drunk young, but this wine displays the necessary balance between fruit, acidity, and backbone for extended cellaring. Perhaps Jean-Marc Joblot, the extremely talented Givry producer, said it best: "Claude Dugat's 1996s are the most beautiful expression of Pinot Noir I've ever had." A taster would have to be dead not to fall in love with these wines. Wine Advocate # 118 Aug 1998

Charmes Chambertin - Dugat-Py

75 DP 0 1 - 315
Tasting Notes for Charmes Chambertin - Dugat-Py, 1999:
The 1999 Charmes-Chambertin is medium to dark ruby-colored and offers a knock-out nose of sweet cherries, smoked bacon, and mint. This is a huge, medium to full-bodied wine that is highly concentrated and expansive. Untold quantities of blackberries, cherries, spices, and hints of new toasty oak can be discerned in its layered character. This powerful yet feminine wine is loaded with ripe tannin. Wine Advocate #136 (Aug 2001).

Clos Vougeot - Meo Camuzet

75 DP 0 2 - 235
Tasting Notes for Clos Vougeot - Meo Camuzet, 2005:
The 2005 Clos Vougeot displays roasted, singed meatiness along with bitter-sweet, szechuan pepper-tinged mulberry fruit. Boasting terrific density on the palate, fineness of tannin, clarity of fruit, and saline, chalk and wet stone manifestations of mineral, this finishes with pungent spice and stone fruit. Lock this away for 8-10 years. Between the effects of drought and of localized hail (in May, before it could effect quality) Jean-Nicolas Meo reported one of his smallest-ever harvests. His production, however, is being boosted these days by a range of negociant wines under the label ┘Meo-Camuzet Frere et Soeur╬ (marked ┘F&S╬ in the listing above). The top wines had been assembled in tank and sulfured in preparation for bottling, and were suffering a bit on account of this. Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

Clos Vougeot - Grivot, Jean

75 IB 0 3 - 115
Tasting Notes for Clos Vougeot - Grivot, Jean, 2005:
A 2005 Clos Vougeot offers a nose of blackberry, wreathed in wood smoke. Firmer in tannin and with less surface polish than most of GrivotŇs wines, it exhibits chalky, black-fruited depth, and overt density, palate-coating richness, but also notable freshness and grip all the way through to its long if ultimately rather austere mineral finish. Figure waiting for 5-7 years just to check back on this. Etienne Grivot aimed this year for gentle extraction (essentially without pigeage), then watchful preservation of the freshness, subtleties and refinement inherent in near-perfect raw material. He performed some very light chaptalization to extend the fermentations. Given the health and natural concentration of his vinous raw material, he felt no need to sulfur or rack the wines until shortly prior to bottling (without filtration), which was the stage at which I tasted.
