This wine is developing nicely. All the attributes of 2005 (including its tannins) melding together and softening into a lovely whole. Baked bean nose, hints of vanilla, soft red fruits but still enough stuffing to promise years of pleasure. Meaty, losing some of its sturdiness to be replaced by more typical Pinot elegance.
Wonderfully ripe nose of deep raspberry, cherry fruits with a hint of pine and forest floor introduce medium weight flavors of similar fruits mixed with smoky meats, supported by good, integrated tannin. Very good resolve and elegant for a typical Marsannay. This is drinkable at present time but will only evolve for the better. Good body, weight and balance.
rode kleur, mooie neus, rood klein fruit, licht kruidig, geur heeft een duidelijke ontwikkeling, je merkt dat de wijn langzaam openkomt, smaak heeft veel gewicht, structuur, inhoud, maar alles is nog wat verpakt, het straalt nog niet, de tweede dag al mooier ontwikkeld en meer drinkgenot, heeft potentie
seems like it`s hiding itself but never the less this is quite delicious stuff, great nose of fresh herbs, red berries tar and some baconfat, on the palate there`s some clove licorice and cherries. it could be in a state of closing down cus it was a little thin and not all there but it seemed like the components for great a wine is in there, I enjoyd drinking this and would again at this price.
