Last time I tried this, there was something missing – actually there was quite a lot missing. This time there is a little more to see, and there’s definitely real interest in the glass this time – perhaps it was previously a faint cork issue.
2011 Rossignol-Trapet, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les Bas Liards
Medium, medium-plus colour. Aromatically very shy, but over about 3 hours it fills out a little with some truffle and a sweet undercurrent – modest but inviting. It’s round in the mouth, with modest, but fine-grained tannin. The fruit is more up-front and obvious this time, with all the sweetness and friendliness of the vintage, and as far as I can see, none of the negatives. Very, tasty.
