David Croix made some tremendous 2015s .. and they have now arrived in bottle. The Beaune Les Cents Vignes is a lovely lighter and forward Beaune 1er cru - nose brimming with juicy red and dark fruit - openly knit and with a nice earthy note.

I'm not extremely sensitive to this "Christmas influence" but it's nevertheless there and will disturb some … [Read more...] about Domaine Anne Gros, Clos Vougeot 2004

It's still a very delicate and charming wine - and is developping … [Read more...] about J.-F. Mugnier, Chambolle Musigny 2009
