Certainly not classic burgundy, but I like it. The past few years have seen the oak recede to the background with full black cherry fruit showing through. Big, full - a bruiser. Drinking well now. No elegance, but a fun, powerful burgundy. (91)
My 2nd bottle/3 hrs of slowly drinking ( last time was in 2008 )
Wine develops very nice, feminine, very elegant nose. Many scents come and fade away one by one, chocolate, mild oak, clean, mineral, watery, stem, fruits. I enjoy it very much. Especially at the end of a bottle, very Chambolle-Musigny !!!
Texture is good, balance is surprise and I can hold the wine moving in my mouth so long.
Aftertaste is deep and very very long in my feeling like a 99 points wine.
I will drink it again in next 4-5 years because I have only 1 bottle left.
By far the best '04 red burg I have had. No traces of green and the house style balances the lightness of the vintage well. I would not choose it over other years, but also don't need to dump the rest.
