Some Burgundies seem to begin to resemble Bordeaux's in character as they age, and this struck me as one of them. Darker in color and more full-bodied than the typical village Burgundy. The wine is still firm and slightly tannic, and the nose and flavors are highlighted by cassis, tarry dark fruits, and tobacco. Interesting, tasty wine. - HK 2002-06-21
