I think ‘background-info’ so important, don’t you? So just for the record, this was drunk, lightly chilled (it didn’t stay chilled in the glass) after mowing my grass in 32°C temperatures yesterday evening. It was just what I needed!
2002 Henri Latour et Fils, Auxey-Duresses 1er Grands Champs
Medium, medium-plus ruby-red. The nose has a dense core, but is generally hard to get at for over an hour – after, it has some savoury hints, faint estery top-notes but stronger and almost good red fruit in the middle. In the mouth there’s good balance – perhaps a little ‘thin’ in the mid-palate, but just now that’s a 2002 thing, it’s definitely not just this wine. Despite that, there’s a nice cushioned texture and a reasonable finish. Decent intensity in the mid-palate. This is a value wine and was enjoyed.
Rebuy – Yes
