Friday, November 16, 2012 - Burgundies - 2004, 2007 and other "Off" vintages (Giant Garoupa Restaurant): I liked this. It was a rather solid 1er Cru, with an inviting nose of cherries and blueberry scents topped by a touch of earth and hints of herb and spice; and then a more masculine palate, where meat and earth took centre-stage on the attack, followed by sappy notes of cherries and blueberries, with more of that Morey spicey, herbiness at the finish. The tannins were just a bit on the powdery, teeth-coating side for me, something that told of the vintage, but otherwise, this was a pretty good wine with plenty of character. Drinking well now.
