This deep ruby-colored red Burgundy has exquisite perfume, with the nose more reminiscent of Chambolle than regional Burgundy. The perfumed aromas suggest ripe strawberries and fresh black cherries with rose petals and black tea. The palate is substantial, concentrated, and pure. You'll see notes of pure strawberries, black cherries, and spiced plums that emerge and broaden as the wine airs. Fresh acidity brightens the intense flavors and enhances the silken texture. The finish is dry, luscious, and impressively long, all class.
Impressive now, this promises to become even fleshier and richer over time as it harmonizes. Give it six months in the bottle, then enjoy it over the next half-decade. It will be phenomenally food-friendly-- making a perfect match with anything from pork chops, to roasted chicken, to game hens in a mushroom cream sauce.
