The wine is light ruby in colour with the edge starting to turn garnet. The nose is clean with fresh medium (+) intensity aromas of red fruit such as cherries, floral such as violets, spice such as liquorice, hint of oak such as vanilla, tertiary aromas of barnyard and forest floor. The wine is developing. The palate is dry, with medium (+) acidity, medium alcohol (13%), medium tannins, fine but grippy, medium body, medium (+) intensity flavours of cherry, liquorice, vanilla, forest floor. The finish is medium in length and a bit drying. The wine should be drunk now (in the next 24 months) and is not suitable for further ageing. The wine is very good quality. The fruit balances the acidity, and there is complexity from the mix of primary, secondary and tertiary development. The finish is of medium length but the wine lacks multiple flavour profiles. A very nice Burgundy at a reasonable price.
Exactly what you'd expect from a $35 bottle, perhaps a little more. A good effort in this vintage and price tier, this is most certainly at peak right now. Feminine and floral as some have already said, this worked well with pork cutlets and arugula salad. Medium-bodied with ample acids. Time to drink up, not getting any better. 13,0% abv.
From 75cl, excellent cork. Morello cherry, mean-and-green capsicum-pepper edge; on mid-palate hints of darker fruit, even licquorice. Dry, furry tannins. A bit skinny and herbal. No hurry, this might even improve given 2-3 years. Rebuy? No. 86P(?)
Succulent bright fruits matched to a bell pepper-like tapered finish; softening now with a bit of age. Feminine in the mouth and really quite beguiling, this is exactly how Burgundy should be at this level.
