OK Burgundy, but not as good as advertised ("stone's throw from Griottes Chambertin"). Very reticent Burgundy nose: cherries, flowers, earth. But thin and simple in the mouth, with a relatively short finish and a touch of bitterness. From an admittedly poor year, but there are a whole lot of wines in the $18 range that would give more bang for the buck. - HK 2003-04-12
