Re: TN: 2011 P. Dubreuil-Fontaine Père & Fils Pernand-Vergelesses 1er Cru Ile des Vergelesses

Had a great bottle of 2011 Rollin Ile des Vergelesses. I wouldn't call it particularly dense but in a perfect spot, balance-wise. We finished the bottle and opened up a 2012 of the same hoping to have a similar experience and couldn't have been more wrong. Closed down hard and much more concentrated.
