Incredible wine. Popped and poured, but could decant shortly as well. The wine was so perfect and pure. The nose matched the palate just wonderfully, that burgundian pinot funk had a delicacy and precision about it. Color was great with no signs of age anywhere on this wine, but it seemed mature too, no harsh tannins, no angles, just smooth all over. This was like sucking on a piece of pinot noir candy, not in sweetness, but in terms of the length and intensity. Still tasted an hour after you were done! Just great! Maybe better than I scored it. Some very fine sediment was thrown, so perhaps a decant for that if you wish. Drinking great now, but there doesn't seem to be a rush either.
Hard to rate now as it needs much more time. Surprisingly dark fruits, good concentration and balance and long. Seemed too oaky - needs more time to absorb. Also had some diacytyl/butterscotch going on that didn't fit. Balance and concentration lead me to think this will turn into something excellent, but it didn't have Chambolle tasting fruit so I am a little less than optiimistic.
