My 2nd bottle from a case purchased at release. This has filled out into a wine with lots of red and black berry and hints of spice and spring flowers that hint at Volnay. Sensational value wine. No hurry to drink.
Burgundy 2008 vs. 2010: Light crimson with some purple. In the nose, this is dark fruity with elderberry, wild raspberry and cherry. Very elegant and seductive as well as complex. On the palate, it's extremely dark with - again - lots of elderberry, but also light overtones of red currant. Light in the finish with strong tannins and a light, nice bitter note. Excellent stuff, much better than the 2008.
Popped and poured. Vibrant start with black cherry, fresh thyme and tarragon. Red and black cherry on palate. Started with a slightly hollow middle, which filled in with more air after an hour+. I will decant if I open another bottle in the next few years, but think this wine will be better 2015 forward. Very good bargain wine.
