Size750MLVintage2002SKU1098Noticeable oak toast highlights earth, underbrush and game-infused red fruit aromas and surprisingly open, rich and accessible but full-bodied flavors that offer uncommon complexity and a focused, punchy, fresh finish. It should score at the upper end of my predicted range.
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7352Made in a particularly brawny style with chunky black fruit, firm tannins and a solid structure. There is, however, an undeniable underlying complexity and class that will come through with a little bottle age. Great potential here.
Size750MLVintage2006SKU8282Moderate wood spice frames mostly red berry fruit aromas that display intense earth and underbrush notes that continue onto the big, broad-shouldered and amply concentrated flavors blessed with plenty of dry extract that buffers the very firm tannins on the structured and notably powerful finish that delivers superb length. Don't Miss! Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2006SKU8277A completely different aromatic profile is presented as here the nose is much more earth dominated with a mix of red, black and violet notes that sit atop rich, full and notably serious medium full flavors that offer excellent volume and here too a bit of wood surfaces on the youthfully austere finish. The mouth feel is quite firm yet the tannins are relatively fine. Excellent quality. Allen Meadows - Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU6278A deeply pitched and very ripe nose of earthy violet aromas trimmed in subtle wood spice notes introduces rich, full and powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate sap that helps to buffer the very firm and dense tannic spine on the youthfully austere finish. This is a very serious no-nonsense wine clearly built for long aging. Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7816Deep ruby. A strongly reduced nose gives up little but the well-muscled flavors are big, robust and very powerful and possess the class young Clos de Vougeot youthful austerity. This is very primary and awkward yet the quality of the raw material is clear and this should reward 10 to 15 years of cellar time.allen meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU6890This too is very densely fruited with the same intense floral notes but here the fruit is darker with blue and black berry aromas that continue onto the palate saturating and hugely concentrated flavors that exude power and punch yet there is real depth as well, all wrapped in a very firmly but not aggressively structured finish that leaves no doubt that this will last for 50 years or longer. Don't Miss! Allen Meadows-Burghound
Size750MLVintage2005SKU7637There is virtually no reduction here and the soaring nose offers notes of violets, earth, red and black pinot fruit and a distinct animale component that introduces big, robust and intense flavors that are textured, indeed even chewy but the tannic spine is well integrated on the hugely long finish. There is ample wood in evidence but there is so much concentration that the wine should integrate it successfully with time in bottle. Allen Meadows-Burghound
