10th Burgundy tasting prt 2 (Rotterdam, Netherlands): The core is medium intense translucent ruby in colour with a purplish hue, while the youthful and primary nose gives off medium-minus intense impressions of bubble gum-like sweet fruits and a touch of caramel. This medium-plus bodied wine is quite primary on the midpalate as well, where extracted medium-plus intense flavours of black ánd red fruits are supported by refreshing medium-plus acidity and supple medium tannins. There’s a soft edge to the fruits, which receives more interest from additional flavours of licorice and slightly volatile menthol. The usual rusticity of the commune is buried deeply and if there’s a nit to pick it’s that the 20-25 second finish shows quite a bit of new oak spice. I’ll give 87 points for this showing, but half a decade in the cellar might see this wine earn another two....................TN Mike de Lange.
