Produttori del Barbaresco - Barbaresco
Brick to tawny red; lovely nose of violets, herbs, cedar and black fruit. On the palate, the fruit is fading, dry tannins are now dominating. Drink up.
Denis Bachelet - Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes
Consistent notes. Brilliant, intensely flavored, very classy. Good color; fragrant, very stylish nose; med.-full bodied; lovely balance & intensity; vigorous and rich; very, very impressive finish, especially for a Villages level wine. Drinking well and should continue to for several more years.
Frederic Esmonin - Ruchottes-Chambertin
Brick/mahogany red color; slightly funky nose of dried fruit (fig, prune, raisin) with gamey/meaty notes; similar flavors; decent intensity of fruit; soft, integrated tannins. A good but not grand cry quality Burgundy that probably won't improve further. Drink now and over the next 3 or 4 years.
Patrick et Christophe Bonnefond - Cote Rotie Les Rochains
Consistent notes. Good deep crimson red; full rich syrah nose with touch of leather, cedar, and oak; lovely and rich on the palate with intense fruit paired with nice acid balance and integrated tannins; long, elegant finish. Drinking well now and should continue to do so for several more years.
Consistent notes. Med.-dark ruby color; lovely nose of spicy black fruit; rich and smooth on the palate - very Merlot, lush silky fruit, full and elegant with good acid structure and well integrated tannins, long elegant finish. More opulant than the 1990. Ready but will hold for several years.
