Somewhat angular and acidic when first opened, but with airing and accompanied by food, this wine turned out to be a graceful Burgundy that also displayed excellent richness. Nose of ripe red cherries, plums, rose blossoms, and charcoal. Medium body in the mouth with flavors of cherry, tart plums and red currants. Good ripeness and length and an appealingly elegant feel and finish. Lots of charm to this wine. - HK 2004-11-28
