That's 2 out of 3 totally corrupted bottles. Annoyed with the website Vin Malin, who sold this at a discount, surely knowing they were peddling undrinkable rubbish. My advice on 2004 red burg is this: don't buy whatever the price. The exception, of course, is restaurants, where they can keep opening until a drinkable one emerges.
This is my first taste of Grand Cru chambertin and I was not disappointed. Beautiful dark brooding colour. Dark fruits along with some tertiary aromas on the nose (humus, etc.). Palate in line with the nose, but what most impressed me was the balance, the suave tanins, and the long finish. 2004 was a difficult year in Burgundy, but this wine is faultless. Got hold of at 38 euros - bargain!
