Fresh and still understated in its elegance and depth of taste it is drinking well now and will only become better ion the years to come; layered and complex now the depth of flavor can still evolve with years of maturation
Bottle #3 of 18. PnP, then savored in glass for a couple hours. This is a young, rich, mineral-laden and complete wine. Just finishing up a 99 M Chiarlo Cerequio, this Beaune has more than an uncanny resemblance to the tar notes on the nose, and the full layered silky cherry-packed and deliciously nuanced secondaries of that Barolo. Warm, fresh-baked cherry cobbler, florals, delicious detail-inducing green notes (some whole cluster?), and hints of ripe-fruited varnish (Grandmother's furniture polish on old wood) balance the clear, bright, super focused, clean, detailed and hidden structure underneath it all. And sneaky length to boot. Packed and stacked, yet impressively suave and supremely elegant, this 05 is just starting its run, and will be phenomenal for 20+ years.
