I first drank this wine in 2004 as a 22 year-old wine neophyte—with duck confit & spaetzle at the late great Earth & Ocean in Seattle—it blew my mind. As Swift said, “I drink no memories” so how does it hold up?
Quite respectably. Opening palate is fresh, mouthwatering, the memories of great Beaujolais crus past. Mid-palate with currant & slate. Excellent acid-tannin accord, cherry liqueur finish. Glorious with roast chicken & black trumpets. — a month ago
A nice acidic backbone upon opening quickly melted away leaving velvety texture and herbal earthy notes. Great with grilled mushrooms & beets. — 8 hours ago
So good! My fave! Great for wedding — 4 days ago
