Only time for a quick decanting. Still, I would say a bit closed at this point. But the violet, cherrry and earthy notes and flavours promise a great deal for this lovely, unpretentious wine. I will revisit in approx. a year.
We drink zee French vino (Chez Simo Bistro, Chicago IL): Nose: Gorgeous and perfumed with violets, earth notes, dark red fruits, red cherries, and some spice tones. The tones seem to waft out of the glass, and while there is a robustness to them, there is also balance and elegance as well.
Taste: Medium bodied with noticeable medium+ acidity and youthful tannins. The structure is certainly there along with violets, spice tones, dark red fruits, and some bits of earth notes.
Overall: This is very young and one of the best Auxey-Duresses I've had. This needs a lot of sleep, but there is a ton to like right now as well.
