This is a proper grown-ups wine - so much refinement, complexity and less-is-more elegance. Very fined boned but the years have given this a touch of meaty hung-game and funky cherry on the nose - there is a lurking sweetness on the nose that comes up on the palate as acidic and tarte - they work well together. Needs food (a nice fatty duck would be brilliant) as the acidity really starts to show after 2 hours.
As a side note I drank from both a Zalto Burgundy glass and a Spiegelau Burgundy glass - the Zalto really accentuated the game and perfume, whereas the Spiegelau brought out the fruit.
Takes time to open up to a gently red-fruited palate underpinned by marks from the soil. Pure expression, the rugged soil of Pernand showing through. The fruit is still persistent, tannins are marked. Lovely wine, understated and elegant.
A deeper and cooler dark fruited nose. Deeper cherry, plum almost cassis. Nice perfume. Supple and full bodied, structured but round around the edges. Quite deep, and with a darker earthy side. Outstanding balance, good length and a cooler savory backend. Outstanding and early peak. 91pts
