ROAGNA vs. BORGOGNA: Nulla di nuovo che non abbia già scritto nei precedenti assaggi di questo vino incredibile, se non che sta continuando a maturare e diventa sempre più buono!!! Sangue, fango, sudore... un vero Nuits St Georges. La bocca è tagliente, il tannino mordente e il frutto scurissimo addolcito da un legno gestito alla perfezione. Lungo, insanguinato e di complessità inimmaginabile. Capace di tenere testa a Cros Parantoux 2004 di Méo-Camuzet e a Clos de la Roche 2002 di Dujac. ( a un quinto del prezzo!!)
Popped and poured along side the 2001. This was very good out of the bottle, and bested the 2001 for the first hour due to the open, ripe, lush fruit. Nothing to complain about here, as this is easy to enjoy and good with food, but at about 90 minutes this started to fade a bit, and was bested by the 2001 from there. In a very good spot but would be drinking now. A-
Much higher, and appropriate fill than first bottle of the case. This was very nice out of the bottle, but after 30 minutes was even better. After about and hour it started to show just a touch of bite on the finish, but overall this is drinking very well and showing off it's ripe red fruits along with some secondaries. Very nice wine. A-
First bottle and lowest fill in the case. Popped and poured. A touch cloudy from the ride home, but dark red with some age showing on the rim. Nice dark red fruit on the nose, with earth in the background. Ripe and full on the palate, with nice complexity but more about the fruit tonight. Very good and next bottle may be better. A-/A
