This is exceptional right now -- showing much better than 10 months ago (despite not having heeded my own "wait till 2017" guidance...). Maybe bottle variation, or maybe just a touch more time was all this needed. Exquisite balance. Has that "ethereal" aspect that one seeks in red Burgundy (or at least I do). Great fruit. One piece of continuity from the prior TN: this seems like more of a creature of the vintage than of the site. Either way, yum!
Definitely needs air at this point. Double-decanted, and improved greatly as the bottle opened over several hours. Dominated by tannins at first, then the fruit unfolds slowly. Very pretty wine throughout. Doesn't show NSG characteristics as much as it shows those of the vintage. Good stuff, but likely better 2017+.
