2006 Mugneret-Gibourg, Bourgogne
Relatively deep colour with purple hints. The nose is heavy with dark, sugar-coated cherry. There’s a soft texture and decent concentration. Slightly tart acidity is more than offset by young fruit that is both stylish and concentrated plus shows a good extra dimension in the mid-plate. A reasonable, if rather faint finish is the last act – perhaps dilute would also be an appropriate alternate description, despite the length. Not a long note, but a bottle that was emptied alarmingly fast. At a good price, this is worth going ‘long’ on for your cellar.
Rebuy – Yes
A few more pics from travels last week. I’ve bypassed the place so often, I thought I should eventually spend a few hours in Dijon. Clearly a town (city) of accumulated wealth yet quite some backstreet charm too. Still, I don’t expect to be wasting my valuable time in the region by rushing back… 🙂
