wow, this is a great wine - especially if you like them elegant and red fruited... this wine was exceptionally light on its feet, had great but gentle acid profile, red cherries red cherries red cherries, bright and lifted, also some smooth and gentle spices... really nice, could imagine having with lunch after golf... i love the elegance and this is a winner qpr... no wonder i can't find it in quantity anywhere
Needs to breath for more than an hour. Bitter/herbal to start with, anemic in the first hour. Softens and opens up a little after an hour in the glasses. No great improvement with a further hour. If drinking in 2016, decant 1 hour. For me this was disappointing. Will cook some pears in the leftovers tomorrow.
this is a great example of a lighter bodied, elegant red fruited burg from the 2011 vintage, there is light raspberry and strawberry fruit, some nice acid (a la citrus) bite, just a hint of minerals, wonder if this will flesh out a bit with 5-7 years of bottle age, if so this is a winner then, and frankly its already a super enjoyable quaff
Enchanting nose of blackberry, black raspberry, dark red brambly berries from the forest.... Medium to light intensity - perfumed. Hints of spice in the background.
On taste juicy and medium intense flavours of the brambly berries with perfect balance on the acidity. Long finish with a medium to light body but intense flavours. Here one appreciates the depth of flavours.
A great young wine that has fine tannins and delicate, but intense fruit notes. Just from the aromas you are in the world of Burgundy. Of course it is too young to drink, it will only get better. I have never had a red Lafon nor a Monthelie premier cru so I was just browsing on this, Great value if you consider the quality of the wine.
