I didn’t jot down any notes for the wines but some flavours and/or aromas stood out:
2001 Meursault – honeyed, sweet ripe stoned fruits with a beautiful floral scent. Needed to breathe a little before it unleashed its full glory.
1990 Clos de Vougeot – fragrant preserved (dried) mandarin peel. A burg crowd pleaser 😉 Still has a life ahead of it.
1993 Clos de Vougeot – slow to emerge from its initial herbaceous aromas but revealed strong berry notes towards the end.
2000 NSG Faiveley – good pairing with the slightly peppery pig’s tendons and evolved the most in the entire flight of wines. A keeper!
2006 NSG Mugnier – Very fruit driven. Almost like a new world pinot noir on the nose. Still young and needs time. I kept getting the aromas of red bean soup or azuki beans. Went well with the slightly sweetish HK goose liver though.
