PNP. Cork perfect. Color bricking garnet. Nose gives sous bois and cherry cola. Swishing this gives more cranberry I think and lots of acid. In mouth reminds me more of a big Gamay. Sipping allows harmony between fruit and structure to show. This is denser and weightier than I expected for the vintage but a little simple. Thanks mike!
Really appreciate the taster's note below about the partially swept autumn leaves. We enjoyed this alongside an 02 Lafarge Volnay, and had fun trying to characterize the name of what "fruit" would be on display in this wine; cranberry? Red currant? something with acid up front. Could certainly age this further--no surprise as it's PV's finest 1er cru.
Well perfumed and very accessible at this stage. Pretty brambly fruits and good minerality - very easy to drink. Lacks some concentration to develop more complexity. Good midweek burg for near to medium term drinking.
