Nose is cherry perfume. Mellow but gorgeous.
Palate is cherry and cherry lipstick. Fresh. Juicy, delicious. Hint of cherry licorice.
Giraffe is a model of consistency. Never a bad bottle.
As this opens more gods cherry density. Wow.

At first I was a bit underwhelmed, but as it opens, I’m more and more impressed with the purity and focus in this wine. The fruit character is nowhere near as intense as the similarly aged examples from California and Oregon I’ve been tasting recently, but it has much more to offer in both flavor and freshness than I expected from a 15-year-old village level Burg. The nose is subtle but flirtatious, showing cherry, dried raspberry, almond, cardamom, and a hint of dust, all of which carry through to the impeccably balanced and oh so elegant palate. Winning. — 24 days ago
Nice ruby red. Red berries with some earthiness and tobacco flavors. Freshness in mouth with red berries and a very smooth finish — 10 days ago
Just what I desire from older white burgundy. Great balance. Fat and mineral. Singing for 3 days straight. Great case for Les Vergellese being a Chardonnay vineyard rather than pinot. Bought at auction for a song. Regardless even at current vintage prices I see this is absolutely value. — 12 days ago
