Lyse bringebær, tydelig urtepreg (det man får fra helklase fermentering), serdeles nyansert og kompleks. Startet med touch naturvinspreg, og bygget deg opp mer frukt og et pent lakristouch over de tre timene vi drakk den. På smak, litt på den lette siden for DRc, men så uhyre kompleks, med nerve og virkelig deilig syrlig bringebærsfrukt. En av de mer spennende unge burgunderne jeg har hatt. Tror ikke denne bør ligge mer en maks 7år.
Wonderfully aromatic - indeed perfumed - nose of fine and penetrating red fruits, roses and subtle spices. Has great finesse: I couldn't stop sniffing it. Fantastic.
Palate - Very fine; tight, long, elegant and refined, with tremendous definition and class. Textbook linearity - a fabulous long and penetrating palate that comes to a very fine and detailed point, with concentrated red fruits, some pot pourri and occasional hints of asparagus or lovely complex celery nuances. Needed breathing time (2 hrs in decanter helped considerably). Loved its confident and dignified 13% alcohol. No brutish high alcohol levels to detract from its elegance.
A superb, fine-grained and elegant wine of obviously great breeding. Has real presence without being boisterous; all class and with that star quality. If it were a person, heads would turn and stare as he/she walked into the room. Another fine 2008 and a superb example of my style of wine. 94-95 points (Updated notes after finding my scribbles from the night).
