8.0

A light ruby core fading out to salmon with med - concentration. The nose was quite fragrant with med intensity and almost med + complexity driven by sweet red fruits, spice, and flowers. Unfortunately the palate was not inline with the nose. The structure was firm and austere creating a drying sensation throughout the mouth. There was little fruit or complexity to help balance the structure. The length was short. #bachaletmonnot #maranges #premiercru #cotedebeaune #pinotnoir #burgundy #ctbucklinwine
