Another sensational bargain from the Premier Cru Dominique Laurent '97 sale. This "village" wine was a great surprise: bright ruby red color, essence of Pinot Noir nose with both ripe red fruit and rose petals, as well as a hint of that barnyardy Burgundian complexity. Medium body with ripe, spicy plum and red berry fruit. Nice finish. Ridiculously good for the price, and just a tad shy of the Laurent '97 Nuits Roncieres Premier Cru tasted recently. - HK 2001-12-16
