What a difference a year or two makes! Medium garnet coloured, Wonderful nose of raspberry with an animal undertone, chrysanthemum. Boy, has this changed in the mouth. Gone is the acidity, leaving behind a well balanced medium to full mouthful, with medium to long taste. Totally differnt from the last time. This had so much 'weight' to it I would have pegged it as a good example of a new world pinot rather than coming from Burgundy. Does this mean ita worth sitting on my burgs for a longer time to allow this transformation or was this a bottling fluke/inconsistancy with the previously tasted bottle?
Color: Rich ruby red. Aroma: Cherry, rhubarb & slight forest floor. Taste: Nicely tart cherry and crisp acidity with a medium/long finish. This wine has a lot going for it and will last much longer in the bottle; based on what I wrote 5 years ago in my Dec 2009 tasting notes the last time I opened a bottle the wine has matured very nicely and still has lots of life remaining. No need to be in any hurry if you are fortunate enough th have this in your cellar.
