Half-bottle purchased in Beaune. Popped and poured. Light ruby hue. Fresh nose of red berries, cinnamon, anise, a bit of forest floor. Sappy but poised palate of brambly, tart red raspberry and bing cherry fruit coupled with iron filings and enlivened by plenty of fresh acidity. Moderated tannins. Moderately long finish marked by red fruit and minerals. Showing beautifully at this point.
This shows quite a bit of unintegrated oak when first opened, but as it develops some beautifully detailed tart red fruit emerges, and some minerality starts to show beneath the wood. The palate is still quite young and beautifully tart, with a great showing from the fruit. Very precise. Still, the wood is still very present. On day two, this was literally brimming with minerality, with some fruit in the foreground and the wood receding a little bit.
Once the wood integrates, this will be a stunning wine. I would give this plenty of time, this bottle was a bit of an infanticide.
Very nice, delicate but complex violet and wine. violet and blueberry flavors with nice tannin and astrigancy to bring out body. Was easily overpowered by the mushroom sformato, but was great on it's own. Would be great with the right match.
