PopnPour, tasted over 4 hrs -semi-translucent light red/blood/rust -aromatic stewed cherry/tomato, beetroot, slight '04 vegetal -med+ acidity gives it great lift, light weight but medium concentration, some cherry remnants, earth, herbal, minimal tannins, moderately long finish, picks up weight and intenstity with air -sadly my last bottle, remarkably complex for a Bourgogne, really a brilliant wine for the vintage and level, consistent notes with 3 bottles over the past 4 years with expected maturation, WIN!
Dinner at Marc's (Marc's House - Bellingham, WA): This was easily the best Bourgogne rouge I've ever had. Indelible density of flavor with the weight of a feather. Incredible red fruit notes, underbrush, and mushrooms. Complete package from a Bourgogne.
At this level, pinot doesn't get much better! Color is pale garnet, as pale as it gets, almost orange (not oxidized. And I might even add distinctive. Nose is earthy still and I think defines high-toned cherry fruit. Palate isn't going to overwhelm you yet it's so well balanced. I don't pick up any greenness. Drinking superbly right now.
