Terrific 2005 Laurent. Anise and cherry with a woody backbone.

On to the red wine! Too young but I wanted to try the first bottle of the batch for a baseline. And there's unsurprisingly oak, but Vosne spices too underneath, black cherry, hint of earth, touch of reduction...think the raw material is here, and it will get much better, just needs 20 years! #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #openthewhoopass

We had this 2006 with our duck on Xmas Day (sorry for the late post) and stole the show at the table. This was just remarkably perfumed, and then seamless on the palate, with all manner of red fruit, earth and woody notes parading around. It may have lacked a certain depth of flavor, and perhaps it wasn't the longest in finish, but boy was this a totally enjoyable bottle. I wish I had another. Such a treat. Real class in the glass.

In my opinion one of the most complex and interesting Cotes d Nuits I have ever had.
