Perfectly aged at this point. Singing with red apple skin, raspberry, earth and leather. Perfect with tea smoked duck.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Cras 1990 - Domaine Germain - Chateau de Chorey lès Beaune

Dopo la tragica morte di Benoit Germain, del Domaine in questione restano solo bottiglie: alcune di rara bellezza e tutte di inestimabile valore emozionale.

Naso pazzesco capace di combinare in equilibrio - senza note di cedimento - sentori terziari a percezioni di freschezza; agrume, sciroppo alla fragola, tabacco, terra smossa e una pungente cannella che si traducono in un sorso di magnifica eleganza. La leggerezza del corpo si distende in micro impulsi acido/sapidi. Da assaporare ad occhi chiusi.

Opened up after about an hour with pretty red fruit, earth, spice, and oak that's not yet integrated. 2 hours later, it became so bitter and unctuous that I couldn't drink it. Not sure about this one, I've got one more bottle I'll sit on for a few more years.

A really good year and Domaine, in a pristine magnum. Dark red fruit and spices in a medium body and surprisingly sophisticated Beaune 1er Cru. If you find it, buy it :)

Delicious. Sappy crunchy red fruits. Nice mouthfeel and a long finish.
