Dinner in Burgundy (Ma Cuisine - Beaune): Ultra ripe and lush with good concentration, but also certainly more advanced than i would ever expect from a 2005 at this level. 87 points based on this bottle tonight. Maybe slightly better to start, but less interesting even after open 30 minutes.
Deep complex fruit with a great length. It was very full and fat. A big wine which gained on being served a bit colder than I normally would like a wine like this. This is a big wine. Almost Grand Cru like in style.
The nose is very clean and correct, strict even. On the palate, this is quite restrained and linear... so young it is not showing much but it has great balance and lovely lemony fruit lurking under the hood.
