As other drinkers have recently noted, this initially presents as slightly past peak, with little fruit remaining but plenty of maturing savory notes plus tertiary caramel, mushroom and soy flavors creeping in around the edges. But with gentle aeration over a couple of hours it finds another gear and delights the drinker with sweet red fruit, Indian spices, mushroom broth, excellent length and various other treats. Absolutely amazing and why we drink Burgundy.
hay and strawberry on the nose. very elegant, silky, feminine and supple. Not much earth or funk - solid acidity - gained weight and perfume as it opened. medium length finish. Not going to get better IMHO so drink now. if there was more intensity to the fruit I would rate this higher.
