I was a bit worried about this wine, since our own CT users claim that it should have been consumed a few years ago. No need to worry yet. Great lemon and a hint of pineapple with just the right amount of oak. This is a wonderful wine that reminds you of why Burgundy is a standard. Excellent.
COLOR - nice yellow straw. NOSE - this is perhaps the most appealing element of this wine; it has a full, rich nose of tight butterscotch, some oak, and nice underlying fruit. TASTE - OAK MONSTER! Way, way over-oaked, so much so that it really conceals the fruit, which is present, but not enough to compensate for the amount of wood; the body is very serious and tightly acidic, which is very pleasant, but I am going to wake up with cottonmouth and splinters. RATING - 85.
