1996


  • Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru (Feb 2009) - Noticeable dark colour, drinkable but too advanced, especially in comparison to the Pernand Vergelesses. Disappointing. [I Hickman].
  • Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru (Apr 2009) - The colour's a little better, but it's much the same story - very pleasant drinking right now, but it's forward and I can't see it get any better. [I Hickman].
  • Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru (Mar 2010) - The fill level is about the same as the previous bottle but it's even more advanced - the end is in sight already. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (Feb 2008) - 2 bottles, no oxidation, both in very good condition; some development, but quite delightful and holding well. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (Sept 2008) - Another couple of excellent bottles - if anything they're fresher than previous ones. some development with some oyster/iodine, lanolin/dried flowers and loads of hazelnut, but the palate still has lively acid and lemony fruit to balance it all out, the finish racy and brilliant with seafood (particularly deep fried calamari & prawns). [I.Hickman]
  • Pernand Vergelesses (Dec 2008) - 2 more bottles, no oxidation but a little more development than the previous two - there is some noticeable variation, nothing major though. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (Mar 2009) - 1 bottle - as before drinking and holding well. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (May 2009) - 2 bottles - still reliable. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (July 2009) - 2 bottles - still drinking well. [I Hickman].
  • Pernand Vergelesses (Jan 2010) - 1 bottle - another great bottle. [I Hickman].
