Why Big Red Diary?

2007 Roty Philippe, Marsannay QuartierApr. 2010
The aromas are as dark as the last wine, but here there is a hint more subtlety. More tannin, a little less width but the flavours are penetrating. This is super.
2007 Roty Philippe, Marsannay Champs St.EtienneApr. 2010
Again a wide panorama of aromas, of not though is that this is has a more red-fruit character than the previous wines. Very silky in the mouth, though you finish with a hint of astringency. The fruit flavours are also a little ‘redder’. Not as ‘big’ as the Marsannay Quartier, but a little finer.
2007 Roty Philippe, Côte de Nuits VillagesApr. 2010
Wide dark aromas with a hint of brûlée. A little fatter than the Marsannay Champs St.Etienne, a little more structure too. Back to the dark fruit. This lingers very well.
2007 Roty Philippe, Gevrey-Chambertin Champs-ChenysApr. 2010
The vieilles vignes cuvée. Denser, tighter and clearly finer aromas. There is a wave of fine but ripe tannin, the flavour, initially engulfed slowly grows and grows on the tongue. Really super finish flavour. Very impressive.
1999 Roty Philippe, Marsannay Champs St.EtienneMar. 2006
Medium ruby colour. Starts with a little cigarette-ash but the nose soon bursts into life with gorgeous, haunting red fruits – lovely. The palate is not on the same level as the nose, but has some sweetness, nice acidity too. Basically very simple except for that haunting nose.
