2004 Tollot-Beaut, Beaune Clos du RoiAug. 2006
High-toned fruit over a depth of dark fruit with hints of oak. Nice texture, lovely purity; the tannins are a little more forward but still quite fine. A super wine.
2000 Bouchard Père et Fils, Beaune Clos du RoiJul. 2006
Medium ruby-red coloured. Medium-sweet notes, hints of strawberry and raspberry and eventually faint smoked bacon. The palate has opened out since its last outing, reasonable intensity and a good length. The acidity is a bit up an down, but this is one 2000 Côte de Beaune that is regaining a little poise.

2000 Bouchard Père et Fils, Beaune Clos du RoiMar. 2005
Medium cherry-red colour. The nose is high-toned and slightly estery, though there’s still reasonable red fruit in the background. Nice density and useful acidity too but not quite the buffering sweet fruit of 18 months ago. Still, the texture is almost good and there’s a little cream on the surprisingly long finish. This was a fantastic little wine on release but the joie de vivre is now gone so I suggest letting them lay down for another few years.
2000 Bouchard Père et Fils, Beaune Clos du RoiNov. 2003
A little lighter than the Potel wine and still cherry-red coloured. Still has hints of oak on the nose, but mainly a mix of red fruits. Very good acidity – like closing the jaws on a mouthful of cherries – without the stones! Medium-plus and quite drying tannins. This shows in a young way, but was a delight anyway.
1998 Bouchard Père et Fils, Beaune Clos du RoiJan. 2003
Medium ruby colour with the last traces of cherry. Nose is sweet red & black cherries with background tobacco. Palate is wide and lively with long acidity. The tannins are very smooth here. Very good wine.
