Absolutely lovely nose. Full, evolved, mighty with forest floor, gun powder and delicate red fruit. With air more perfume enters. Indish spices, raspberries and some hints of black olives. Very complex. Generousity and elegance combined. Very round, full, smooth palate. Aromatic and perfumed. Toasty oak, but not disturbing. Very succulent and tasty. So generous, so fat and smooth. So long and spicy. Tasted blind, this was a very generous top Burg. Not really GC persistence, but not far behind. Some parts of Combe d'Orveau was incorporated into the great Musigny as late as 1989 if I remember corrctly.
