Light ruby-tawny (50/50). Very aromatic nose of toasted oak, earth, cherry. Mature flavours that have married and emphasize cherry and smoke with a bright acid finish. Excellent example of budget Burgundy that delivers typicite and true bottle age characteristics.
best showing thus far for this wine. A two hour decant helped open the wine's aromatics and beautiful richness of fruit. Ripe, structured, earthy and layered. This is clean but has beautiful depth and struck me as outstanding tonight - especially with a Marcella Hazan recipe of braised pork with porcini and juniper. A class act that gives a glimpse of first rate red burgundy for a song. Drinks well now but will last at least another 5 years.
Transparent red colour. Nice Pinot Noir aroma. Earthy, with a little spice. Quite broad for beeing a 2007. Open style and perfect to drink now. The day after, a hint of oxydation. Good value for the money.
