DRC, La Tache Grand Cru

"(with thanks to Bruce Khouri). Fantastically pure with the classic spice box, hoisin and soy nose followed by big, rich, very structured flavors that display notes of earth, leather and tea. The tannins are big, ripe and are completely buffered by the sap with length that is simply phenomenal. This remains completely primary in character and seems not to have budged at all since it was bottled. A fine, if not genuinely great, vintage for La Tâche that is softer in the mouth than the '96 Grands Ech and this should improve for most of another decade and last for 50 years. Very classy juice. Note: while it's happened only twice in my experience, the '96 can be intensely vegetal on the nose and not exhibit the purity that the wine is justifiably famous for; I also had two recent bottles that displayed distinct signs of brett. However, I have tasted so many outstanding bottles of the '96 LT that I view these examples as outliers." - Allen Meadows

Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron, Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Boudots

"A superbly complex nose that is more Vosne than Nuits in 2005 features seductive spicy black berry fruit aromas, spice notes, particularly anise and clove as well as a touch of earth and a hint of game, all trimmed in a subtle wood toast is followed by equally complex and impeccably balanced medium full flavors that culminate in serious length where the tannins are completely buffered by the copious extract. This is perhaps not built for more than a decade of upside but it should deliver much pleasure during that time." - Allen Meadows, Outstanding

Domaine d'Eugenie, Echezeaux Grand Cru

"As good as the Brûlées is the Echézeaux is notably more complex with its beautiful nose of cool, pure and airy purple fruit, primarily plum, and spice elements that includes anise and clove that can also be found on the mineral suffused, lacy and energetic flavors that possess excellent underlying material on the firmly structured, linear and persistent finish. A wine of harmony as the supporting tannins are dense but fine." - Allen Meadows

DRC, Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru

"A broad array of classic Vosne spice elements add nuance to the super-fresh mildly earthy dark berry and rose petal aromas. The rich, full-bodied and palate staining big-bodied flavors flash a taut muscularity before culminating in a beautifully focused and precise finish that offers excellent persistence. Not surprisingly at only 10 years of age, this is still very young and a wine that will need at least 5 to 8 more years of bottle age first." - Allen Meadows

Domaine Sylvain Cathiard, Romanee St Vivant Grand Cru

"This possesses the most complex and the most complete nose in the range and is noticeably more elegant than the Malconsorts as it offers up compelling aromas of extremely fresh and airy red berry fruit and spice tones that transfer to the rich, full and serious yet lacy flavors brimming with dry extract and supported by dense but fine tannins that are almost completely buffered on the powerful and balanced finish by all of the mid-palate sap. An understated effort that exudes class." - Allen Meadows

Domaine Jean-Jacques Confuron, Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Boudots

"In 2009, this is more Vosne than Nuits as the very ripe black cherry and cassis nose is exceptionally spicy and this spice character carries over to the extremely rich and full-bodied flavors blessed with copious dry extract that imparts a velvety quality to the lightly structured and persistent finish. This is pretty but like several of these '09s, right at the limit of ripeness for my taste." - Allen Meadows, Outstanding

Domaine Armand Rousseau, Chambertin Grand Cru

"This is also ultra-pure and densely fruited with notes of anise, mint, wet stone and a sauvage hint that introduces intensely earthy and mineral-driven big-bodied flavors that are rich, powerful, serious and densely concentrated, all wrapped in a silky, palate staining, explosive and colossally persistent finish. This is actually relatively expressive and approachable for a young Cham yet the balance and harmony is present for this to age for decades. A brilliant effort and one of the best vintages ever for this justifiably revered wine." - Allen Meadows

Domaine Ponsot, Clos Vougeot VV Grand Cru

"Deep ruby. A superbly multifaceted nose offers up nose of notably ripe black berry, plum and earth as well as hints of animale and underbrush. There is outstanding power to the very concentrated and serious large-scaled flavors that are underpinned by a dense layer of dry extract that does not completely buffer the exceptionally firm tannins as they too coat the mouth. This is an old school Clos de Vougeot that is positively Cistercian in its finishing austerity. I very much like this but I would only suggest purchasing it to those who have the forbearance to wait as this will definitely not be an early drinker." - Allen Meadows

There is a real sense of underlying tension to the pure and well-delineated middle weight flavors that possess outstanding depth on the balanced, lingering and mouth coating finish. This will be accessible young but will require at least a decade to realize its full potential." - Allen Meadows , Sweet spot Outstanding

The very round and naturally sweet medium-bodied flavors possess a velvety texture as well as fine depth on the firm, masculine and solidly persistent finish. As with the Charmes, my range offers the benefit of the doubt that the curious nose is a passing phase." - Allen Meadows

DRC, La Tache Grand Cru

"As it was from cask this is more restrained than usual and it requires aggressive swirling to coax the pure and spicy essence of red berry fruit aromas to emerge from the glass where there is a slight hint of herbal tea present. There is a similar reserve to the distinctly focused and linear flavors that enjoy a seemingly unlimited reserve of dry extract that renders the fine-grained and silky tannins almost invisible at present though I suspect that they will become much more apparent once the baby fat melts away. There is superb complexity and fantastic length and this mineral-driven effort should be capable of drinking well after only 12 years or so of bottle age but require a solid 20 before it's completely mature. While La Tâche is almost by definition a superbly elegant wine there is also always an inner core of muscle. In 2011 it seems to have more of the former and a bit less of the latter, indeed this may the first vintage in quite a while where it is ready before the Richebourg." - Allen Meadows

There is excellent detail and plenty of punch to the mineral-inflected flavors that are shaped by ultra-refined tannins on the balanced and gorgeously persistent finish that is firm and serious but not really especially austere. This is seriously good with a lovely sense of harmony plus the perfect balance suggests that this will mature over a very long time." - Allen Meadows

Domaine Jean Grivot, Nuits St Georges 1er Cru Boudots

"As it was from barrel this is still noticeably reduced so if you're tempted to try a bottle in the name of science be sure to decant it first. This is a big and very rich wine with good muscle and punch to the well-detailed flavors that possess a lovely sense of underlying tension on the austere, balanced and strikingly long finish. This is a robust effort that in 2012 is more Nuits than Vosne in character. Note that my score assumes that the reduction is a passing phase." - Allen Meadows, Outstanding

"Deep ruby. This is also quite floral with excellent ripeness but also fine freshness to the plum, black cherry, cassis and blueberry aromas. The supple but tautly muscular medium weight plus flavors possess a suave mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract that both coats the palate and buffers the very firm tannic spine on the highly persistent and imposingly powerful finish. Here too plenty of patience will be required." - Allen Meadows

"A markedly ripe yet still fresh nose offers up spicy and gamy notes of red and dark berry fruit scents. There is a lovely sense of energy to the detailed middle weight flavors that possess fine depth of material and plenty of power on the beautifully long and moderately firm finish that delivers excellent length. As was the case last year from cask, what this does not have, at least not at present, is outstanding depth though it's reasonable to assume that more will be in the offing with time in bottle though this is obviously not a certainty." - Allen Meadows

"While the wood is hardly shy here it's more moderate as it allows the floral and spice nuances on the red currant and black pinot fruit to be seen. There is good underlying tension to the mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that possess fine depth and length if not the structure of a classic example. In this case there is a suggestion of dryness but it's so subtle that it probably will not be an issue going forward and my score assumes that it will not be." - Allen Meadows

"Deep ruby. Once again a highly reticent nose only grudgingly gives up discreet, if attractively perfumed, notes of rose petal, spice and an ultra-pure assortment of red berry fruit scents. Like the Riche this possesses that wonderful inner mouth perfume that makes the Vosne grand crus justifiably so famous. There is wonderful intensity to the sleek big-bodied flavors that display plenty of punch and authority on the impeccably well-balanced and hugely long and very firmly structured finish. While La Tâche is often a very powerful wine, the 2013 version seems particularly so and it would be accurately described as a beautiful combination of power and refinement." - Allen Meadows

"This is perhaps the most floral wine in the range in 2014 plus it's even spicier than the RSV if not the La Tâche with its rose petal, violet, lilac, Asian spice, sandalwood, dark berry liqueur and lavender-scented nose. Not surprisingly this is both bigger and richer than the RSV with excellent muscle and intensity to the mineral-driven broad-shouldered flavors that deliver stunningly good complexity on the impressively concentrated but seamlessly well-balanced finale that really fans out as it sits on the palate.

"Here the more expressive nose combines both upper and lower register aromas of airy and cool red currant and floral aromas with those of earth, humus and sauvage hints. The mouth feel is distinctly different than what is typically found with Mazoyères because rather than being big, bold and powerful it's almost delicate with a caressing aspect to the precise, concentrated and focused middle weight flavors that possess excellent length on the balanced finish. This is really a lovely effort though I wouldn't exactly describe it as typical." - Allen Meadows
