Wines Tasted at HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago IL): Very good color, fill approx 4 cm. Musty and woodsy aromas that started as unappealing and only improved slightly with more air. Much more attractive flavors with plenty of sweet spice with mature black fruit and well reduced shiitake mushrooms. Moderate length and intensity. 84 points on nose; 94 on palate. Popped and poured, best when open 10-15 minutes, then held up for about an hour.
HDH Auction (Tru - Chicago, IL): Showed some corky notes at first, but soon those morphed into just plain funky notes. The palate was awesome with lots of savory, and meaty notes. Mushrooms, floral notes, and earth. Showing incredibly well.
HDH auction tasting at Tru (Chicago, IL): Slightly murky and some signs of bricking. Very dirty nose of musk, barnyard, mulch, and wet fur. The palate is slightly sweet but the animal and barnyard characters don't show up there. Some tangy ripe red fruit and very light tannins to boot. This is what aged Burgundy is all about.
