Came across this one deep in the cellar, and not a moment too soon. This is still a delicious Burgundy, though at this point it is quite delicate and definitely nearing the point where it needs to be drunk. Excellent perfumed bouquet of flower-tinged Pinot fruit; light to medium body, nice flavors of plum, cherry, charcoal. Still balanced, but with virtually no tannic structure left it's time to drink this one up. - HK 2007-10-01
