The 2012 Red Burgundies from Bottle (Mar 2015)

Bright red. Musky, soil-driven aromas and flavors of raspberry, dried flowers, leather and minerals. At once fine-grained and penetrating, conveying outstanding density without any impression of weight. This wine could hardly be more different than the musclebound Clos Vougeot. Spreads out and builds on the back end, with the full, ripe tannins totally buffered by the wine’s sheer extract.
