🎄 Christmas Day - Advent Day 25 🎄

🎅 Santa says “Hope you enjoyed the calendar & had a great Christmas 😘 “

For Christmas Day we decided to combine our advent & gift each other this special decedent treat of a £485 Richebourg which I adore but rarely buy due to its crazy overpriced price but this was our present to each other this year 😍

🥩 Paired perfectly with Mrs Es Beef Wellington, Cauliflower cheese, Roast potato, red cabbage, pigs in blankets & veg (see Instagram ⏩ for pics)

🏵 96 points

📍 Domaine Anne-Françoise Gros Richebourg Grand Cru 2005

🍷 Ruby w/ a brown tint at the edge

👃 Hypnotic aromas of cherry, mint, blackberry, soggy earth, prune & smokey tobacco w/ leather, light oak, leaves, fig, date, herbs, red flower perfumed potpourri, red & blue berry fruit tones - 10/10 on nasal foreplay 😍

👄 Med body of silky smooth earthy blackberry, date, fig & red cherry w/ light mocha, red berry, light mineral & cherry cola

🎯 Long earthy blackberry, cherry, red berry, fig & date slight mocha linger

Beautiful Burgundy nose, both the terroir and the fruits. Good time to drink with the acidity receding.
