Great showing for this Premier Cru from the excellent 2005 vintage. Ruby/purple in color, clear and bright. The nose is nice with cherries, chervil and spice. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is bigger than on the nose. Cherries, black cherries with some spice. Long finish. Drinking well at age 17, this should go another ten to fifteen more years. Better with food, this would work well with a seared Tuna Steak with a seared crust.
