This one started out with lean fruits and a fair amount of dry earth. But, after two hours in the decanter, put on weight, body thickened with creamy texture, dark currants, dark chocolate, soft baking spices with soft minerality, moist forest floor earthiness and withering dark flowers. Ended well with our dessert of dark chocolate and strawberries.
Thank you Christina for sharing this Grand Cru Burgundy with us.

Lovely gentle lemon with seashells on the nose. There’s a real warmth to this in the core- lovely honeyed fruit with good tension and a long, long finish. A lovely wine.... 30 mins later, this has expanded and is really open and lush. Wow — 18 hours ago
Nice reddish tawny color, translucent with depth. Bright ripe bing cherry dominated nose. Notes of rhubarb, cherries, moist forest floor, a little menthol and some steminess. Still chewy in the mouth but well balanced, especially after an hour of air. Good stuff. Should get better with more time in the bottle though. — 18 hours ago
Valentine's day....time for pinot and pizza! Decanted 1 hour. A forbidding dark ruby red color. On the nose: Earthy, red fruit, floral, mushrooms, cinnamon...all jump out of the glass. Taste: Dark cherry, spice, tobacco, minerals....a power Burgundy from 60 year old vines. — 6 days ago
