Lunch (Somewhere) in Europe (Not Burgundy): An absolute treat from a bottle that had most likely not moved since release. Very pale tea-like color, which was incredibly misleading (but color tells you so little for Burg). Elegant forest floor aromas with enticing dried herbs. Earthy and surprisingly robust on palate, this was shockingly great for the vintage at almost 40 years old.
Light brown in the glass. Scents of fall forest with dry leaves and fresh air. In the mouth the wine had a smooth and soft texture and a delicious, yet somewhat odd camphor flavour note. With good density and balance, this wine was very seductive and attractive in its medium sized body. Mature and balanced and screaming to be consumed with food. Very nice.
