Clos Vougeot - Grivot, Jean

75 DP 1 0 1550 -
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 Grivot’s 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.

Clos Vougeot ( US Labels ) - Jadot, Louis

75 IB 1 0 1100 -
Tasting Notes for Clos Vougeot ( US Labels ) - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This saturated and dark colored wine, with its extraordinarily spicy nose of sweet red and black fruits, sent me soaring. This massive, intense, broad-shouldered, masculine, structured, and chewy wine is crammed with super-ripe, rich, and layered blackberries, cassis, licorice, earth, and Asian spices. As if that were not enough, its dense fruit comes roaring back after expectoration, lingering on the palate for nearly a minute. This is an extraordinary Clos Vougeot! Projected maturity: 2006-2014. Bravo! to Jacques Lardiere and Pierre-Henri Gagey. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Echezeaux - Jadot, Louis

75 IB 1 0 1900 -
Tasting Notes for Echezeaux - Jadot, Louis, 1996:
This wine is medium-to-dark ruby-colored and exhibits dense and earthy red cherry aromatics. It is full-bodied, thickly-textured, chewy, and structured, packed with powerful freshly laid asphalt, blackberry, and charred oak flavors. Its long and well-defined finish reveals loads of powerful yet ripe tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2008. This wine (note: this is the Domaine bottling, there may also be a negociant bottling) is produced from a parcel in the Rouges sector (the western-most) of this large grand cru vineyard.

Echezeaux - Jadot, Louis

75 IB 1 0 1750 -
Tasting Notes for Echezeaux - Jadot, Louis, 1995:
The Jadot 2005 Echezeaux is sweetly-scented with cherry, cranberry, honey and black tea. Lithe and juicy, sweetly-fruited and pure, this illustrates the missions of elegance, elevation and refinement accruing to grand cru, finishing with bright, salt-tinged fruit wreathed in floral and tea-like perfume. One can only wonder whether a darker or more carnal side — or tannins that are presently not in evidence — will assert themselves with time. This was especially slow to finish malo, and Lardiere insists it is not showing its full potential today, expecting to bottle it later than most of the other wines as well. 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.

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.

Gevrey Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs - Mortet, Denis

75 IB 3 0 1100 -
Tasting Notes for Gevrey Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs - Mortet, Denis, 2005:
The 2005 Gevrey-Chambertin Mes Cinq Terroirs perpetuates the practice begun with the 2004 vintage, of combining the fruit from Au Velle, En Motrot, Combe du Dessus, En Deree and En Champs (all downhill from Champeaux on the north side of Gevrey) into a single and — at least in this instance -- highly synergistic village wine, representing nearly half of the estate’s total acreage. Fruit from these sites is co-fermented in two lots segregated by age of vine, and then blended (which we did in the glass, since like its stable mates, this wine will be racked only once, in March, pursuant to bottling). Ripe black fruits with carnal, fungal and mineral nuances combine for a clear, bright, satin-textured, and substantially-concentrated impression, free of any superficial sweetness and successfully resisting the influence of the all new barrels. Long, rolling low tones of black fruits and forest floor complete a picture very 2005 in its combination of bright fresh-fruit acids with dark, even slightly somber hues of flavor. Taking over this domaine in his mid-twenties, Arnaud Mortet appears poised to bottle a superb collection from his father’s final harvest. The crew took a brief second pass over certain parcels, he relates, and the bunches from some young vines required triage, but otherwise the fruit was perfect at first picking. Malolactic fermentations continued well into last autumn. Mortet emphasizes that he will continue a search for elegance and refinement begun in recent years, with a lighter touch during fermentation, and at least for vintage 2006 the employment of some previously-used barrels in order to de-emphasize wood at the modest end of his price spectrum Wine Advocate # 170 Apr 2007

Lafarge Assortment ( x2 ducs x2chenes x1greves x1cai x6vs ) - Lafarge, Michel

75 IB 1 0 895 -
Tasting Notes for Lafarge Assortment ( x2 ducs x2chenes x1greves x1cai x6vs ) - Lafarge, Michel, 2001:
Michel & Frederic Lafarge, Volnay en-primeur: 2001 production at this domaine was greatly reduced by the hail that swept through Volnay in August 2001. It cannot be said that the 2001 wines are better than 2000 because they are so different. 2001 is a fine, elegant and pure 'pinot' vintage - 'they speak of their origins'. As a result of the small crop we don't have a great deal to go round and have come up with a radical solution at what we think is a great price. Mixed cases containing: 6 bottles of the brambly Volnay Vendanges Selectionees, 2 bottles of the silky Volnay Clos du Chateau des Ducs, 2 bottles of the raspberry infused Volnay Clos des Chenes, 1 bottle of the feral (but nicely so) Beaune Greves and 1 bottle of the elegant red currant flavoured Volnay Caillerets.
