Extremely deep purple color for a "generic" village Burgundy. Excellent nose with a lot of complexity for this price range. Black cherries, tart plums, strawberries, smoke, and more than a hint of the earthy/barnyard component that some of the great Cotes de Nuits have. Excellent ripeness in the mouth, velvety texture, lively flavors, lingering finish. This has gotten better year by year and may even rank higher in another 1 - 2 years. - HK 2004-04-29
