This wine started out with a bit of a tannic and closed feel, but blossomed nicely with airing. It is Burgundian in style, though riper tasting than most Burgundies I can afford (not that I can afford this one either). It has an appealing terroir character to it -- spicy, earthy, with excellent berry and plum fruit and a powerful floral component reminiscent of violets. - HK 2005-02-04
