1996 Germain, Beaune 1er Les Teurons
What a surprise! These half bottles have always been a bit too oaky and uninspiring – now, eventually, we have life – and what life it is! There remains more than a hint of oak texture, but now there is a frankly beautiful clarity of fruit – both aromatically and on the palate. Fine acidity and intensity, the tannin texture seems more of oak than grape but this was just a beautiful (3) glass(es).
Rebuy – Yes

Thanks Benoit!
