Friday, May 10, 2013 - Burgundy Tasting (JBaker's in York): -- double-decanted before the event --
-- tasted a couple pours blind --

Slight bricking throughout. Nose is very expressive, with tons of mint and of a touch of greenness. Medium-full to full bodied. Very spirity on the palate; loads of mint; pipe tobacco; dry; fruit is fading. Excellent.
