Well, this was one of the better values I have had in Burgundy in a while. It was $70 on release with current vintages retailing for $110 or so. Pop and pour, this seems to be at peak or just getting there. It improved in the first thirty minutes and then held until the bottle was empty. Light ruby in color. A bit pale. The nose is strong though with cherries and a slight earthy funk. Maybe just a bit of spice. On the palate, this has nice layering of fruit (cherries) and earth. Good balance. Persistent finish. It went very well with food. Delicious but also contemplative.
Visiting wine country? Why spend $250 per day in tasting fees when you can get the wine pass and pay less then half of that? 1 Day with the wine pass = $125+ in savings. 2 Days with the wine pass = $250+ in savings. The Priority Wine Pass
