I really enjoyed the 99 Santenay from the other day, but this 96 didn’t quite do the business…
1996 Jacques Germain, Beaune 1er Les Teuronstry to find this wine...
Medium-plus ruby-red colour. The nose is high-toned and wide with a pronounced meaty/savoury aspect – characterful but it didn’t work for me. The main impression from the palate is the acidity – forward but quite soft. The wine is certainly intense and long, but at this stage in its development the aroma and flavour profile don’t endear it to me – more of a spotty adolescent than mature interest. Previous bottles have been much nicer so I will give this the benefit of the doubt. Remaining bottles will not be touched in the next 3-4 years…
Rebuy – Maybe
