i'm not the Burgundy guy so don't take my word as gospel, but this is an excellent wine from one of my favorite producers.
Tasted alongside the 2010 Bouchard Clos Vougeot which has a wonderful bouquet but lacking any kind of pleasure, this was the exact opposite. Completely reticent on the nose, it's almost the antithesis of Burgundy, it provides very little prelude of what's to come when you drink - which is a full flavor profile, depth and richness of fruit, crispness and a bit of a tannic spine.
I assume the nose will develop, the tannins will moderate and this will be an exceptional wine, but even now it's very enjoyable
Klar, dyp rød. Dyp, forførende nese med mørke, røde bær, villbringebær og fioler. Mørk, dyp og godt modnet frukt med høy konsentrasjon. Spiss syre. Tørr utgang med milde, men faste tanniner. God lengde. Trenger tid. Fremstår noe tørr og stram nå.
Wildman New Release Burgundy Tasting (Peninsula Hotel - Chicago IL): Barrel sample. Red berry aromas with a slightly floral start, along with some coffee. Sweet red and black cherry flavors with moderate density and power with fairly substantial tannins dominating the middle today. Good meaty spice emerges on finish. This will certainly need plenty of time in the cellar.
