2008 Patriarche, Corton-CharlemagneApr. 2010
Fresher aromas – quite some herbs and complexity – seems that it was picked less ripe than the others. Another loose/soft wine to start with that partly improves in the mid-palte.
2002 Patriarche, Gevrey-ChambertinMar. 2005
Medium cherry-red colour. The nose is very high-toned and has more than a hint of the medicinal about it – improves a little with time. Once in the mouth the impression is of medium concentration fruit, slightly forward acidity and quite nice tannins. No obvious Gevrey character though it’s an okay wine without real faults. On reflection I suspect a number of Bourgognes might give it a close run for quality, if not price.
