TNs: Cedric Bouchard VV21, 97 Jadot Beze

Met up with KarlK and his lovely wife for dinner at Park Bruges. Great company and great wine!

Cedric Bouchard VV21

The sixth bottle or so I’ve had in the past 4 months, and this was as good as all the others. Beautiful white peach on the nose, lovely acidity and chalk on the palate with a long finish. Weightless and lithe as usual.

1997 Jadot Chambertin Clos de Beze

Pure burgundy on the nose with some forest floor and plum. Streak of acidity and LOTS of structure. Very long finish. This opened up on the mid palate after about an hour open in glass but was still a bit surly throughout the time we had it open. Great as 97 jadot tends to be, but this would be better in 5-10.


I agree with the notes, about the wines and meal!
