2008 Red Burgundies (Mar 2011)

Moderately saturated medium red. Bright, nuanced nose combines raspberry, red berries, minerals, menthol and smoke. Refreshing and shapely on the palate, with juicy acidity framing the red fruit and spice flavors. Not a fat style but intense, suave and nicely understated. Finishes long, with noteworthy grip. A lovely 2008 from Beaune.
