I had the pleasure to taste this wine again this week over several days and was utterly blown away by the quality. A mere Bourgogne rouge that drinks like a great village wine or a very good premier cru. This wine is sourced from de-classified Pommard vines that average 40 years of age. Day one, the wine has a fantastic density and structure with some well-integrated tannins that need to resolve, yet there was incredible restraint, length, and balance. On days two and three, the fruit exploded from the glass, and the overall character of the wine was quite elevated. Typically most Bourgogne rouges are meant to drink young, but cellaring this wine for a few years will pay huge dividends. This Bourgogne Rouge is a fantastic example that should not be missed, but only 48 bottles left in stock.
Stephan Tanzer "Dark ruby-red. Sexy aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and spices reminded me of a Saint-Emilion wine. At once dense and lively, offering concentrated, sweet black raspberry and chocolate flavors. A real outperformer for its category, finishing with firm but harmonious tannins and very good fruit persistence."
