This is a red Chassagne.  It drinks very well right now.  Purple in color, ruby at the rim.  The nose earthy with black cherries.  Nice lush texture.  Black cherry fruit on the palate.  Delicious.  Some complexity.  Riper fruit than expected.  Good finish.  This will drink well on its own or with Pinot Noir friendly foods.  It probably won't get much better but should be good for another 5 to 7 years at least.
