Week 4 of our virtual tastings, this week’s theme being burgundy chosen by Joe, ideally from Chambolle-Musigny or Vosne-Romanee. Always good for some laughs and lots of knowledge being dropped! @Mike R

A village level wine from a reputable producer in a solid vintage. Upon opening, I put this straight in to the decanter with a goal of two hours. I had a small sip at the beginning and realized it would need every bit of those two hours, and likely more. Extremely coiled, herbal and thin. At the two hour mark, fleshy black cherry skin, potpourri and tart red fruits started to appear aromatically. Once this hit the four hour mark, it gained heft (still retaining good acidity) with forest floor, a touch of iron, and added some spice and black peppercorn toward the finish. Evolved continuously throughout the evening. Definitely youthful, so if opening now, I’d give this 4+hrs to reveal itself appropriately.

Edit: tried another glass the day after and it stayed in line with how it was at the 4hr decanting mark, with a slightly more pronounced truffled mushroom note.

Birthday brunch bottle #2. Delicate perfumy florals and sweet cherry fruit on the nose, with some spicy minerality and touch of green stem. Palate is light and ethereal, with a long acid-driven finish. Wonderful pairing for the foraged mushroom and pastrami hash!

Fruity, lots of berries. Good acidity, good pairing for food. Firm in middle palate, and pretty good. 2017-05-06

Simple but very acceptable burgundy - did not standup well in 2011 horizontal tasting
