A pure, cool and airy nose offers up notes of red currant, underbrush and that Gevrey sauvage character that can also be found on the energetic and beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors that exhibit a fine minerality on the delicious if mildly austere finish. I like the balance and this should be capable of rewarding up to a decade of cellar time and perhaps a bit more. (Drink starting 2019)

In contrast to the La Riotte, where the bouquet was nicely recovered from the bottling and the palate was agitated, the Bel Air was still fairly closed from the recent bottling, but the wine had snapped nicely back into focus on the palate. As I observed last year, the Taupenots’ parcel in the premier cru of Bel Air are thirty years of age, and these vines are now really starting to hit on all cylinders. The reticent nose on the 2011 offers up scents of red and black cherries, gamebirds, cocoa, nutskins, lovely soil tones and a touch of cedar. On the palate the wine is back on form after the mise, delivering lovely focus and balance in its full-bodied format, with ripe tannins, tangy acids and a very good core of fruit. This will be lovely. (Drink between 2021-2050)
