GrapePip Auction: 2011 Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux Grands Liards, Camus-Bruchon. Lot live in July 2014 at £155 in bond a dozen.  "...plenty of floral influence on the red and dark pinot fruit aromas that interestingly also display hints of smoked tea. The delicious, round and admirably intense medium-bodied flavors possess a suave mouth feel even though the tannins are slightly more prominent on the lightly mineral-permeated finish. This is an excellent villages and worth a look." Burghound

GrapePip Auction: 2005 Le Corton, Bonneau de Martray. Lot live inDecember 2014. Opening at £560 in bond per 6 "A very ripe, almost red pinot and cassis liqueur-like nose precedes rich, full, sweet and admirably concentrated full-bodied flavors that are at once robust yet elegant, delivering excellent length on the finely balanced finish. This is built to age and should easily last 25 to 30 years and unlike the typical Corton, the tannins here are really quite sophisticated." Burghound

"A discreet touch of wood frames a similar nose of red and blue berry fruit as well as dark floral notes that complement well the silky, round and very Chambolle flavors that are blessed with finer tannins and sneaky length.
