Ruby in color, clear and bright. The nose has cherries with a minty note. Also some sandalwood. Slight tannins. This is still drinking young. Good cherry fruit. Kept getting better with air. Nice balance. Good finish. Even though this is "just" a village level wine, I would let this cellar for a while longer (or give it some air).
2015 is a great vintage and I was excited to get a chance to try this one. In Burgundy terms, this is certainly a value. It was selling for under $40. Ruby/purple in color. Very bright. On the nose, sour cherries and slight cranberries. Very nice lush texture. Medium tannins. On the palate, a bit one dimensional at this point. Plenty of sour cherry fruit. It drinks more like a new world Pinot than I expected. Perhaps those labels mean less and less these days. It is very enjoyable right now, but I think to justify the money, it should be laid down for at least a decade. Certain
2005 Domaine Michel & Joanna Ecard Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Peuillets, France, Burgundy - Wine review
Checking on a 2005 Burgundy. Not ready yet. Ruby/purple in color. The nose is nice but primary with cherries and spice. On the palate, this has cherries, slight tannins and spice. Pretty monolithic at this stage but it eventually opens with air. Hold these for now.
Ruby in color. Nice solid cherries on the nose. Medium bodied. Tart cherries on the palate. Light bodied. Good acidity. This really needs food to be at its best.
Gold in color. A bit deeper, probably saw some new oak. The nose is dusty with some lemon and spice. On the palate, this is a very rich wine. Very good, if to me, un-Chablis-like. Lemon candy, almost sweet. Round. Enough acidity but no more. Nice finish.
