Long and elegant and a bit toasty. Menthol, hints of earth and smoke, cranberry, pomegranate.

This is the kind of Burgundy that turns people into addicts. Tasting it blind, I thought it was grand cru, and I am grateful that @Jim Westby opened it for us! I found it beety, catnip like, full of voluptuous dark fruit, savory complexity and yet still refreshing and focused. It was extraordinary with our Dijon chicken with nameko mushrooms!

Another 05 that is drinking well showing lots of dark cherry with sweet spice, dried herbs, mineral & rose petal.

Got this for a great price and it delivered. Tons of barnyard funk when I uncorks it; worried that it hadn't been stored properly. I poured it an hour later and it was drinking great. Rich and full bodied paired perfectly with our Beef bourguinon. It was the highlight wine for our guest.

Babykilling an '11 to check in for a not-rocking-the-red Burgundy Thursday :) Jersey packed away again until next season...why am I not surprised!

I don't find this as shut down as I expected. Decanted about 1.5 hours. Very nice, red cherry, distinct candied fruit spice, chalk, coffee, sweet noticeable rosewater, slight barnyard, touch of vanilla...honestly surprised here. Very approachable now I think, but more time certainly won't hurt, just evolve flavors and smooth it some more. Slight heat, but otherwise very enjoyable.
