I love Burgundy, especially if its a wine like Musigny from a decent year. This was the best wine I have had thus far this year. Good staying power, great texture, beautiful berry flavors.Probably getting close to it peak in the next 5-8 years.
Beautiful vibrant ruby color, clean nose of pinot berries (whatever those are). On the palate, the tannins still linger but the wine is complex and layered, it is razor sharp in its focus and has the usual Musigny elegance. The finish is long. This wine will improve over the next two decades, a shame to open it now.
Musigny (Marea): Here endeth the stylistic continuity among Mugnier, Jadot, & Drouhin as the fruit here had a syrupy intensity and an unnecessary sweetness. It managed to do that without seeming excessively fat so I still don't think anyone would confuse it for, say, a California pinot, but it wasn't especially compelling either and was certainly a waste of the terroir.
