2000 Nicolas Potel, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Peuillets
Ooh! This smells fine; deep, faintly musky, with warm leaves and an appealing sweetness. Fine texture on the tongue with a sweetness of mature red pinot fruit. I love Peuillets, having also collected the Camille Giroud version since the 04 vintage. This is too good for typing – I have to drink – sadly though, this is my last of these…
Rebuy – Yes

2013 Maison Harbour, Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice
Nicely packaged – hand numbered on the back-label and capped with a sturdy black wax top. The nose starts with a little reduction – perhaps no surprise given that it’s sealed with DIAM30. Give it air, and there’s a little white pepper over a hint of mineral and a tight but interesting dark fruit. Ample width with more than an implied weight, too. Very silky, with a bright, indeed pretty mid-palate fruit. Mouth-wateringly moreish. I drank this over two nights, and it was even better on the second night!
Rebuy – Yes
