Clearly, I am not going to become a Burgundy drinker. I do not get it. When you factor the insane price for this wine, which is $11,000 per bottle, the Emperor has no clothes. The wine was tart, crisp, bright and energetic. The fruit was clean, offering a sense of earthy purity to its bright red flavor profile coupled with herbal, underbrush and fennel notes. But there was far too much acidity and firmness to be fun to drink. The nose was clearly the best part of the experience. But I want to drink a wine, not just smell it. Served double blind, when the label was revealed, this bottle that cost as much a car for some people did not get better in the glass.
