    Default 2007 Frederic Esmonin

    I recieveda shipment yesterday of wines that I had purchased last
    spring in Burgundy. I forgot that I had bought a few cases of
    Frederic Esmonin wines and was surprised when they showed up
    yesterday. While unpacking I found a few bottles had been slightly
    damaged (stained) and I decided to open them up and drink them.

    2007 Frederic Esmonin Gevery Chambertin VV "Jouises" 1er-medium bodied
    and color. Nice nose of red berries and cherries with a hint of
    smoke. Not overly ripe or concentrated, well balanced red fruit full
    of cherries. The tannins were a bit drying on the finish but that
    seemed to disapate as the wine opened up over a two hour period. A
    good value at under $25 "B"

    2007 Fredereic Esmonin Mazy Chambertin Grand Cru-A bit more heft and
    color than the "Jouises" with a more powerful aroma of blueberry,
    spices and black cherries. A bit muscular on the palate, full
    throttle fruit, asian spice, a bit earthy and a bit of mushroom/
    truffle. This one had the same dry tannic finish but again it blew off
    after being opened for a an hour. "B+/A-"

    Both wines need some time and I have enough to drink over the next
    5-10 years.

    Generally not one of my favorite producers either but I was there and
    the wine was sampled from barrel and it was good and the prices were
    really good. So inexpensvie on average that i can drink as everyday
    wine.
