I’m typing this in a break from hundreds of notes for the March edition of Extra! – online by Monday. This wine reminds me of why I do all of this – it’s a treat!
2006 Jerome Galeyrand, Marsannay Combe du Pré
What a lovely wine! I’m actually writing this note on the second day of drinking this bottle – overnight, unstoppered in the fridge – but it’s still lovely. Medium-plus colour. Fresh dark-red fruit that almost shows a come-hither Chambolle-ness. Lithe yet with good concentration, the fruit is fresh but with ripe depth and a nice impression of concentration in the finish. All you could ask for in the label.
