behdadjoon Vergers 11. Intense! 4w
  •   troutmonster Most under-the-radar white burgundy producer. Shhh! 4w
  •   behdadjoon @troutmonster true 3 years ago. Unfortunately no longer. This years prices were over 60 euro for the 1st cru from importers. This one was $199 in a restaurant in the USA with reasonable prices. :( 4w
  •   troutmonster Whoa! Last I bought were the 10s on release and very very affordable. The secret is out... 4w
  •   behdadjoon @troutmonster afraid so. You can still get them for about 40 a bottle at terroir in santenay while supplies last. 4w

  •   facedeclown How was it? 4w
  •   behdadjoon @facedeclown concentrated and robust. But lacking in fruit. Can't decide if just too young or the vintage which I always find a challenge. The 03 had more fruit and intensity all around but less minerality. To be fair, was a premier cru as well 4w
  •   facedeclown Thanks! I have a Narvaux, I was wondering when to drink it. I'll may hold it a few more years then. 2004 always tasted oddly for me in white Burgundies, showing much acidity in their youth, and now showing more body than fruit (at least in the Puligny of Coche I've opened a few days ago). Although I had much pleasure on Coche's Meursault or on the wines of Francois Jobard 2-3 years ago. Maybe some are already declining... 4w
  •   behdadjoon @facedeclown agree fully! Coche is always good but not always amazing so there is a value for money issue. Rulot from 04 for me is undrinkable. Doubt it will ever open and will go straight to body / no fruit as you describe (or already has). Which is unfortunate as I have a great deal of it. Ramonet is solid but not amazing for what it is. I have not had enough raveneau yet to say but what I have had so far is a story like Coche. In general, a hit or miss year depending on producer and best avoided. Costs too much to figure out when to drink what, and delivers only relative mediocrity at best. 4w
  •   behdadjoon @facedeclown sorry, so as for the narvaux if you only have one bottles would go for it sooner rather than later (and my general rule is 10 years for great whites to show their best, so about now and for the next 2-3 years). Better a bit young than a bit old. I have 5 more of these so I can space them out a bit. 4w
  •   facedeclown Thanks for the advice! I had very nice surprises on some older d'Auvenay (95 and 99 in particular), which were very reductive but showing very well after 2-3hours. But that may not be the case for 2004 indeed, I'll drink it up sonner than later. 4w
  •   behdadjoon @facedeclown fair point. One of the loveliest whites I had was her aligote 99. I opened it and almost poured it out it was so bad. Then 3 hours in it became spectacular. 4w

  •   jeremygiesbrecht Wow! Still alive and kicking though? 2mon
  •   behdadjoon @jeremygiesbrecht sure. 78 is under rated. Mouton was old but nice. HB was very good. Latour is robust still. Pichon comtesse and beychevelle or Palmer and the like are hit or miss with more bottle variance in my experience but largely nice. 1mon
