Really bright and juicy red and black fruits. There's some plant matter things, with purple flowers at the fore. It has decent flesh and refreshing tang. Tannins are slinky and overall balance is excellent. A thoroughly engaging and delicious drink

TN: 2010 Domaine Jacques Carillon Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet, Grand Cru

Came out of the gate firing on all cylinders. White peach and white flowers a plenty with some lavender and apricot (a hint of botrytis perhaps?). It is a dense wine, with latent power but not heavy. It shows some spiced pear and honey with air and is certainly ready to go now. Length of flavour is ...

This has the power and thrust of Batard, but is an elegant rendition. Pure of white peach fruit with some spearmint and white flower action too. It has aniseed spice and is rich and sappy but light on its feet. It has near perfect shape in the mouth and oozes minerality on the finish. There's a gent...

Drinking wonderfully well. The nose has plenty of smoky mineral, almond butter, white peach and toast. It is full and rich in the mouth, with sappy fruits and a dollop of butter. The finish is loaded with chalk and length is impressive.

Re: Top Red Burgundy vintage of the 21st century so far

TN: 2002 G.Roumier Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Clos de La Bussière

Has some dark fruits, a whiff of iron, black earth and a hint of leather. It is rich and powerful in the mouth, supremely youthful for its age. There are elements of beauty and muscle. I like it very much but it needs more time.

Quite stemmy/stalky at first with some sandalwood and raspberry too. With air you get violets and other plant matter. It has a gentle meatiness and is relatively lean through the mid-palate. It is fine and crunchy, finishing with good cut and persistence.

A savoury nose of smoked meats, root vegetable and earth. It is pure and unadulterated, expressive of flavour. The mid-palate is a little lean, held tightly by its minerally acidity. With air, cherry fruits sweeten at the wine's core. The finish is fine and it has excellent cut. Floral spice notes f...

Exquisite white peach fruit trimmed with some aniseed spice. Loads of smoky mineral too. Unctuous and full, with excellent depth and the usual Roulot precision. Has the power of the vintage and elegance of the maker. Such a beautifully balanced wine that is starting to drink really well.

TN: 2019 Domaine de la Pépière Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Sur Lie Vieilles Vignes Briords

Perfectly understated, with a whisper of white peach and lemon, coupled with flinty/chalky minerality. There's a suggestion of mint and the palate is quite neutral but lacks no character. The finish is dry, with some citrus rind freshness. A very fine Briords.

A near perfect bottle. Complex aromatics of Indian spice, roasted meats, teak, leather and decaying rose. There's some balsamic volatility that adds punch. It is full and voluminous, with awesome presence. Structural elements melt into the wine and the finish is supremely long.

Hi Jozef,

I think of Caroline's wines as supremely elegant, perfumed and finer. She tends to pick on the earlier side to maintain freshness and her wines in both colours are generally beautifully balanced. They do not seem to have the same level of dry extract as her husband's wines.

Cheers

A fine and complex aroma of chamomile, Tahitian lime, mint and slate. The palate is rich and dense, but focused and pure. The perfect amount of sweetness is countered by a fine line of minerally acidity. Beautifully balanced.
