When first opened, everything about this bottle screams "DRINK ME...don't hang about, do it now." Firstly because it's lovely, and when Burgundy is lovely you should not hang about. You never known how long it will remain lovely. Delicious succulent sweetness, supported by fruit that is mature but not without power. And then, after an hour, the fine grained tannins kick in and the wine pretends it's still young and good for another decade. But the colour is still more brown than red, and it's still a wine that seems more ancient than its years. dg
Red fruit, spices and a fair amount of toasty wood on the nose. Cherries and other red berries on the palate, supported by smoke and spices and refreshed by noticeable acidity. A lot of material, but the wood is not yet fully integrated. Slightly better on the second day.
