2002 and 2001 Red Burgundies (Mar 2004)

Deep red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate; much blacker in character than the Porrets Saint-Georges and Nuits villages Rich, dense and sweet; impressively large-scaled for the vintage but with delicacy and definition. Intriguing notes of mint and chocolate. Seriously structured wine with excellent verve. The rather suave tannins reach the front teeth.
