If you read my first tasting note on this Beaune Premiere Cru you will recall that I hated it, giving it 80 points and 1 star. I have a few more in the cellar and pulled one out for a comparative tasting after two more years of cellaring. Not much has changed, unfortunately. I did some research and I must say I am confused. It scored 91 points on average by peers on cellar tracker. Vivino peeps gave it a good write up yet I can’t get my head around the muted nose of rhubarb and cherry pie which is too tart still with little fruit depth. Red currants and cinnamon finally showed up. I was kinder this time with 85 points, but that is generous. A major 1 star pass for the money. Salut….
Really……disappointed, with this thin wine. From the stellar 2009 vintage, I was hoping for depth, charachter, fruit and a cellaring potential. Nothing I mentioned showed up for this party. Overly acidic, unbalanced and lacking any semblance of a typical Burgundy, this wine is a major pass. Move it along people, don’t waste your time. I get nothing on the nose, a thin reedy mid palate of just juice and no fruit on the finish at all. 1star, and a paltry 80 points if done by pro wine taster. Sorry to burst bubbles….
