We gave it a brief decant before dinner and it was completely open for business when we got to it. Typical raspberry, dirt and sous bois with a lushness that fortold of years yet ahead for it. Very nice indeed.
This is chunkier and more robustly/primarily fruity that the '99 Bourgogne I've enjoyed a few times recently, and I enjoyed it less than that one. Makes me think I'd prefer this with another few years on it.
