Trip to Burgundy; 6/7/2009-6/10/2009 (The Cote d'Or): And to end – another fantastic wine, from a 375ml this time. Wonderful nose with incredible complexity, so much so that it is almost impossible to put down in words. Lush, rich dark fruit, grilled duck fat, chicken stock, roasted meat, sous bois, violets. Just incredible. Palate was not quite there, but still outstanding, with savoury bass notes and powerful red berry tones with little sprinkles of violets and bramble, all supported by a firm structure with tight tannins and great acidity. Lovely finish with more bramble, a little rubber and a touch of orange peel. This came across as very, very young still. Already a great wine when we got to it, I can only imagine how good it will be with a few more years in the bottle.
