John Gilman, in his publication View From the Cellar, reviewed that wine, calling it "deep, full-bodied, pure and very powerful for Brouilly" and later "Here the size of the 2009 vintage can be felt in all its glory, and while this is hardly what I would call a textbook example of Brouilly, it is a terrific bottle of wine." (Robin, I hope that this falls under Fair Use, but if not feel free to nuke)
My one bottle will stay in the cellar for a while longer, FWIW.
