Community Tasting Note

  • AGELVIS Likes this wine: 91 points

    January 31, 2020 - Decanted 90 min and poured back in the bottle. Is that what they call a double decant? Very deep magenta color. Blackberry pie, lemon curd and candle wax on the somewhat subdued, slightly tart nose. Smooth, dry, full bodied palate, with nice acidity and minerality. Firm, full tannins on the medium long finish. This was nice, but needs more complexity or distinction at this price point.

This is still a very young wine and my guess is it needs at least until 2026 to really develop the complexity and distinction you rightfully expect from a wine at this price point. Remember this is made by a Frenchman who makes some of the most age worthy Burgundy there is...
