philippe et francis léchenaut 05 bourgogne ‘hcdn’

2005 Philippe et Vincent Léchenaut, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits try to find this wine...
A nice, bright medium-plus colour. The nose shows plenty of spicy, deep-toned oak and eventually higher toned, slightly diffuse red fruit. The palate is less dense than the best 05 bourgognes and certainly less sweet/ripe than the majority, but still with a decent intensity, if lots of oak flavour. Actually pretty good with food, less interesting without. Cheaper, but short of the quality of last week’s Jayer-Gilles.
Rebuy – Maybe
