a cheeky mid-weeker…


Despite being shaken up in a van on Tuesday, not bad at all…

2005 des Croix, Bourgogne Pinot Noir
A satisfying ‘pop’ as the cork comes out. Still plenty of colour. The nose with a trace of reduction, but the fruit is also deep. Finally this wine has some secondary flavours – this was pure fruit liqueur a few years back. Open and very tasty indeed – a hint of reduction on the palate too – there was none of this on previous bottles. Previously a very great wine considering the label – it remains so. Bravo!
Rebuy – Yes

      None that I know of, but I’ll see him next week and interrogate!

    You might ask why so few of his 2015’s seem to be available–only found one US retailer for each of his 1er crus and BBR hasn’t had any 2015’s at all.

      Perhaps because he had less than half a harvest due to the heat of 2015…
