2005 potel-aviron morgon côte du py (v.v.)

potel aviron morgon cote du py

I’m amazed by the transformation that 12 months in bottle has achieved. Last tasted, this was a tannic brute with an apparently modest finish but tons of potential (read: fireworks). Today its rather smooth, still concentrated and the finish is no-longer overwhelmed by what went before…

2005 Potel-Aviron, Morgon Côte du Py VV try to find this wine...
A broodingly dark colour. The nose is slightly alcoholic, mildly meaty and creamily black fruited – almost like burgundy, but not quite. Very smooth and concentrated – I’m impressed how it pushes from the mid-palate into the finish – without fatigue. Again the fruit is black cherry shaded. Drinkable now with much more to come, and half the price of a growing number of inferior ’boutique’ bourgogne rouges.
Rebuy – Yes

    I wondered how long before you’d open one of these!

    3 days is more than enough cellaring for an 05 – you don’t want them to be OTH when you open them…

    Excellent bouquette! I keep it in an honored place right next to my budweiser in the basement fridge!

    I’m getting another 6-pack this weekend (bud that is).

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
