Light brown-red colour which deepened with air. Sois bois which blows off. Lots of pu er tea. Rose petals. Spices. Light red fruit. All in balance. Beautiful. Gentle. Lovely. Goosebumps. A beautiful and aristocratic wine. On palate, light red fruit. blue fruit. little bit of gentle tea tannin. Bit of cola. Moreish. All in balance. What Burg should aim to be.
Magnum bottle sourced from a Tokyo restaurant. Bottle in very good (not excellent or perfect) condition. Classic LT nose, classic DRC first mouth. The image that developed in my mind as I was drinking the wine was that of an old, fragile grandma (not grandpa), who was happy to have lived a great life, and lovely stories to tell, but at the same time was ready to move on. I had a lot of pleasure drinking this wine.
Great Vosne Dinner with Friends (Charlie Trotter's - Chicago IL): Showing plenty of age in color, with plenty of bricking. Aromas show fair amount of remaining red fruit, but more fresh mushroom and Asian five spice mix. Same spice quite plentiful on the palate with mostly secondary character and some primary red fruit in the background. Impressive for its age and vintage.
