Takes at least an hour to open up. Good concentration of currant, plum, and raspberry fruit. Some cedar and eucalyptus. Occasionally a floral note. Luxurious, velvety Margaux texture. Still some tannin left to resolve. Acidity and alcohol are well balanced. Lacks the body and complexity of the grand vin but a very nice second wine.

Red
1990 Louis Jadot Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos St. Jacques Pinot Noir

Quite hedonistic. Definitely has further room to mature. Very vibrant red fruit. Initially perceived as a saccharine strawberry sherbet but becomes more of a cherry liqueur. Shows some black tea and Burgundian sweatiness. A touch of a caramelized note and maybe slightly minty. With time, some animal skin, showing the appellation. Silky texture with almost fully integrated tannins and medium-plus alcohol, but significant remaining acidity.

    3/19/18, 2:27 PM - I don't remember, but I would guess that I decanted a red Burgundy of this age primarily for sediment and did not give it much time in the decanter before pouring the first glass. I suspect that the bottle was open for about 2 hours before it was finished.
