Medium intensity aroma: Pomegranite, a bit of cherry candy, chocolate. Quite dense for Burg. Low acidity. Smooth Medium body. Extremely complex. Will improve with age, though low acidity might restrict its age limit.

Red currant jam. Very ripe berries. Light body. Good acidity. It was pleasant to drink, but quite simple and fruit-forward for a 1er Cru.

Woodland mushrooms. Dark berry. Toasty. Higher in acidity. Some tannins.
