A little funk but with good freshness for the vintage finishes with a touch of va . Probably better a few years ago still enjoyable though .

Very resinous and black-fruited umami character. Creosote, licorice, black plum, Asian spice, soy sauce and beef jerky. Extremely savory expression of Volnay, finishing with big dry tannins and intense minerality. Oak and fruit tannins are still fighting it out, but this has amazing potential and promises to be a stellar wine given some patience.

Pousse d’Or and Mom’s pork tamales (no salsa). I highly recommend both.

One hour open time; chalky cherry cola at first, then more savory dried goods came thru. It didn't hold up much longer after it peaked, thus only 9 rating - better Bourgognes yet to come.

Silky, luscious fruit with blueberry cassis and coffee. Perfect now. Big.

Beautiful wine! Full of tense red fruit with a great bit of acidity. Well balanced!
