Drank very well tonight. Being an 05 it showed a smidge more tannins and youth full than the other Burgs but still starting to enter its prime drinking window. More dark fruited. I liked it. Not a feather weight but also NOT a heavy wine like Claude Dugat's Gevreys which I find ponderous. I might buy some of these.
Classic but clear medium dark ruby color. Complex and smooth notes of the world here...earth, low level spices, somewhere in there beautiful dark fruits. Finishes with a brightness...a welcome one! This is at the top of red burgundies I've enjoyed. Drinking extremely well now.
One of 5 young burgs sampled from the cellar. The easy winner (from 2 2002 NSGs, and a 2005 St Aubin 1er Cru and 2005 Vosne-Romanee VV villages). Not ready, but already a lovely bottle. Slightly diffuse roseate colour lightening at rim. Grown-up nose of roses and other garden flowers. Lovely palate of complex fruits and flowers, with gentle but persistent acidity, and very good length. Classy. Revisit in 18 months.
