2006 and 2005 Red Burgundies (Mar 2008)

Deep red-ruby. Multidimensional nose combines blackberry, violet and minerals with exotic spices, earth and underbrush. Then juicy and gripping in the mouth, combining outstanding density and a distinctly light touch. This, too, boasts superb energy and sappiness to its flavors of red fruits, spices and earth. Wonderfully complex already but youthfully tight, firmly structured and built for a long and slow evolution in bottle. The tannins are solid but not hard. A great vintage for this cuvee and likely to evolve for two or three decades, at a minimum.
