2005 Groffier Robert - Père et Fils, Chambertin Clos-de-BèzeApr. 2008
Medium-plus colour. A wide, toffee-inflected nose that’s sweet. The palate is just a little less fresh than many, but it’s concentrated and savoury. The finish, versus what’s gone before, is rather modest. In isolation this is a very nice wine, in the context of the other bottles tonight it is on the second level.
2002 Groffier Robert - Père et Fils, Bourgogne Pinot NoirMar. 2006
Shiny medium cherry-red colour. Sweet cherry skins over an earthy base, perhaps a transient note of oak toast. The palate has a little more density and sweetness vs the Bourgogne Epineuil that came before it. The acidity is pretty good with a not-bad finish, though frankly this needs just a little more to provide excitement. Well crafted and a nice wine but just a little dull
2000 Groffier Robert - Père et Fils, Bourgogne RougeFeb. 2003
Slightly animale nose with primary black fruit. For a Bourgogne this has excellent density and very good acidity. The tannins are quite grainy with blackberry and raspberry fruit. This is very nice wine and excellent Bourgogne.
