2008 Seguin Manuel, Clos de VougeotApr. 2010
Deeper colour than the last Clos de Vougeot, a dark aroma fills the glass to match. Muscular and lithe there’s lots of structure here. After the last wine this is really powerful – real grand cru intensity. Lingers quite well. If the last was a lovely wine, this is a grand cru wine.
2008 Seguin Manuel, Corton-CharlemagneApr. 2010
The oak-led aromas are both tighter and denser. Fresh, tasty though seemingly a little underpowered, then it’s lifted (rescued!) by a late arriving intensity. Lovely flavours and length. Very nice.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les LavièresDec. 2008
Medium, medium-plus colour. Deep red and black-skinned cherries under faint wood spice, the last drops provide a lovely reccurrant note. Lithe, lovely acidity, ripe fruit and good good mid-palate flavour. The tannin is relatively background. Not the density of a Bouchard Père or Tollot-Beaut Lavières, but this is a lovely middle-weight.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Bourgogne Pinot NoirJul. 2008
From several plots dotted around the Hautes-Côtes, Chorey and Savigny. The nose majors on a wide expanse of strawberry fruit. In the mouth it’s soft, tasty and also shares the strawberry impression. Far from ‘simple’, there’s decent tannin behind and a good length. Very successful.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Puligny-Montrachet Vieilles VignesJul. 2008
Sourced from the area of Levrons. A forward and quite dense nose. Silky and showing a clear extra dimension to the lovely fruit. Excellent length too – this is super.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Savigny-lès-Beaune Vieilles VignesJul. 2008
From vines averaging over 60 years-old in the flat part of the appellation., but still red. Again from more than one plot and elevaged in 1-2 year-old barrels. The nose is pure and focused. More forward acidity than the bourgogne, with good fruit in the mix. Mouth-wateringly long.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Puligny-Montrachet La GarenneJul. 2008
A forward, slightly estery nose. Silky and slightly fat with a dense mineral expression – almost oily. Concentrated and lingers in an impressively complex way.
2006 Seguin Manuel, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les LavièresJul. 2008
From an approximately 1 hectare plot on the mid-slope. Darker skinned fruit on the nose, but still red. A nice balance in the mouth with additional soft tannin, very good acidity and a lingering finish. Yum.
2005 Seguin Manuel, Corton-CharlemagneJul. 2008
50% new oak used in the elevage. A super nose – very wide and complex. In the mouth it’s mineral and linear yet there is also complexity. Lovely freshness. This is very primary, but is super.
