Why Big Red Diary?

Vintage information 2005:

The whites are full and rich, usually with plenty enough acidity to balance - not the mineral tension of the 04s, but then the 04s can sometims seem dilute in comparison.
The reds are usually first-class - this was a vintage to fill your store with great values from Beaune, Savigny, Pommard and Aloxe - it's not very often that you can say that, but most are now sold! Many have closed-up now so will disappoint - wait 10 years!




2005 Perrot-Minot Christophe, Gevrey-ChambertinNov. 2007
Despite being tight at the core there is some width and hints of cream on the nose. Much more concentration and structure, but the tannin is almost as fine as the Rousseau – though to a fresher effect. I have a slight preference for this.
