The two vintages are at a very different stage of evolution in my experience. 01 has consistently been the more enjoyable vintage over at least the last 15 years but IMO it's time to drink nearly all of them, whereas good 02s are just getting into gear.So, it looks as though 2001 is potentially more consistent and interesting than 2002. Thanks for the notes Simon.
To me that is more important than producer, vintage, vineyard and anything else one might care to mention. Warm red burgundy is a crime against humanity( though obviously a relatively minor one). In recent years I have put red burgundies for offlines in the fridge for a few hours and transported them in a cooling sleeve. Even in the middle of winter they come out at the right temperature.at a correct temperature
Just coming to the end of a case of Pommard Pezerolles 98. 8 out of eleven have been corked. I love the Montilles of this period but something was clearly amiss.At least three bottles from the same case
