Some bricking. The nose is a complex mixture of Gevrey earth, spice, game, underbrush and an evident nose of minerality followed by powerful, intense and still moderately structured flavors with plenty of punch and length. The finish is still firm though by no means hard and while this is certainly approachable now, I would give it 45 minutes or so of air. Note: another recent bottle was similar in character but did not possess the same degree of freshness and in particular, the finish seemed somewhat light and diffuse.
Tasted twice during the same month, once in Faiveley's cellars and once at a private dinner party in America, this wine is fully mature, with an earthy, gamey, spicy, smoky nose, round, generous flavors, and a smooth texture. Delicious, but less compelling than I had hoped, it should be drunk over the next 5-6 years. (RP)
Restrained, bordering on austere, with only a hint of decadence on the nose and palate to remind you that it's a Burgundy. A solid wine with little gr ace, it has red cherry and chocolate flavors that could develop into something fine.
