Tasted by aknot13. Nose: bursting with mostly red fruits (red berries) and some black fruit, flowers, pepper and some vanilla. On the palate: medium body, medium acidity, red fruits, slightly sweet (but not jammy) finish with some integrated tannins and oak. Long finish. Great balance of fruit + tannins and acidity. 93 pt.

Tasted by GNBB. Decanted 2 hours. Wine starting to show a little ageing on the rim but still a very firm & consistent red. Excellent nose: intense, ripe blackcurrants, leather, tobacco box, light fragrant lavender. Palate is supple with a good, but integrated and fine, tannic grip; good acid - has real depth and some power. Showing good, soft blackcurrants with attractive “stemy” notes (certainly not negative) and really clear lavender aftertaste. Excellent persistence. Overall, an excellent wine and one that is certainly now in its drinking window. Perhaps does not have that ineffable something that makes a great wine in this excellent vintage, but a fine one nonetheless. Drink now-2030. (94 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by tuccipa. Reminded me of that teenage bird dog that could hunt anything, yet be that loyal companion to the whole family. Sturdy yet with finesse, kind but yet so intelligent. Straw, citrus, slight yeast with enough acid to give it many years of pointing the pheasants. Like that dog, years of teaching me as much i taught him. Good breeding can be so important. Well done and still looking forward to more each season. (94 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.

Tasted by SergZr. Fresh and fruty. Drink now or during in 20 years.But if now need decantering min 4 hours. (97 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by aikane. Funk of age, intense and lively on the plate on opening, no sign of age in the color, put in decanter for 2 hours, then classic and full bodied with bouquet CS and oak, very good red wine that went well with lamb but not mind blowing, should be some upside to come with more complexity expected. Next time decant 30 min. (93 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.

Tasted by MWiking. väldigt knuten, kanske in en tunnel just nu. Gott förstås men kan nog ge mer med lite tid (90 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by pavel_p. Poured into decanter after another disappointing 07 Uccelliera (88-89). Looks younger in the glass with a transparent dark ruby in the glass, just a touch of orange towards the rim. Fragrant dry red fruit, wood spices, elevated acidity providing freshness, tannins fully integrated. Short to medium finish. Well done - a rather classic 06 Brunello that is ready to drink now. (92 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by Tannic Monster. It gets even better. It was great in 2016 and even better now. I can't imagine it getting even better so my belief is that this is firing on all cylinders and showing at it's best. Just a perfectly balanced wine in every respect. Pure harmony. (96 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.

Tasted by fizz. From 375ml. Cork barely stained. PnP. Still dark. Cherry, plum, violet. Mid-weight palate is a little taut. Black tea-like feel in the mouth, but the acid is a little prominent. Tannins are still drying. Needs food if consuming now. (flawed bottle) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by Jeremy Holmes. The standard 2012 Coche-Dury Meursault village wine didn’t have the richness of the Rougeots but did have more off the usual struck match. It was very fresh, with excellent detail and a line of citrus and mineral. It finished with outstanding cut and left a mineral calling card. - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by aquacongas. From double Magnum Needs a lot of time but the 2000 LB makes fun from the first sip. Concentrated, powerful but everything is in harmony. for the next 20 years at least. 94+ (94 pts.) - Tasted 4/22/2018.
Tasted by Jeremy Holmes. Rich and accessible. Sappy orchard fruits were dense and coated the mouth with flavour. It had a touch of almond butter and good mineral intensity. Length of flavour was seriously good, and it had great drive and presence. - Tasted 4/22/2018.
