Pnp last night. A little tight right out of the bottle. But after it had decanted for 1/2 hr opened up beautifully and kept getting better all through dinner. Still plenty of fruit. But definitely at or just past its peak. Recommend drinking now and letting it decant for an hour prior to pouring
totally agree with the previous 2 comments. Amazed that this wine when decanted for an hour was still young and not played out after all this time. My sister had saved a bottle that was gifted to her and not being a serious wine collector had siimply stored it on it's side in her dining room exposed to light and temps over 70*. Was completely expecting it to be ruined but amazingly the initial bouquet proved otherwise and then the initial tasting just after opening showed that this wine could take a licking and keep on coming. Young, forward fruit and completely integrated tannins made this a most memorable experience.
Very pleasantly surprised after 2 bottles over 4 hours. Definitely a pop n pour. Both bottles had a distinct nose of musty forest floor with a hint of blackberry. The palate reveals forward fruit of sour cherry and very balanced tannins. Light and pleasant. This is not a 1er cru but still drinking well and a great value. Will look for more to drink this year. Don't wait drink now
