France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Richebourg Grand Cru
Popped and poured. Very firm and dense black fruit aromas, similar on palate, not particularly accessible. Very dense throughout, I'd give this a long decant if trying any time soon. This never really got more interesting, even with 2+ hours in glass.
Fresh rose aromas with some licorice, black cherry. Black and red cherry flavors again showing licorice elements. slightly sweet start, firming up with more structure towards long finish. Good now, certainly better with another decade.
France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru
Great color, great fill (~1 cm). Good degree of remaining black fruit with equal amounts of earth and mushroom. Certainly more mushroomy than fruit driven palate, but firm and showing good density. Impressive for the vintage. Very glad to share with Jean-Marie Fourrier.
