Initial nose: Chicken bouillon, licorice/anise. Palate: Tight and tannic. Rustic. After 90 minutes air: hints of peppermint, cherry sucret lozenges and subtle cork. Eventually gave way to cork and was disposed of.
Nice bourgogne, nothing to get excited about. Could improve with a bit more maturity but I have my doubts. Could not taste the fabled 2005 vintage in this Burgundy. Not as good as Patrice Rion's Burgundy.

(Geantet-Pansiot Bourgogne "Pinot Fin") Black pink color; appealing big nose of roses and sappy red fruit; tight sweet red fruit entry, juicy tart cherry and strawberry fruit; medium finish (needs a year or two)
