pascal lachaux clos saint denis 2004

This wine does have the 2004 character, but it’s on a low, complex and interesting level. If Pascal made one of these in 2005 I’d certainly be looking for it – the raw material is super. On a negative note I’m never happy when a ‘négoce’ operation virtually uses the same labels as the domaine – these labels could easily be mistaken for the Domaine Robert Arnoux bottles despite no such reference.
2004 Pascal Lachaux, Clos St.Denis try to find this wine...
A little more than medium colour. The nose starts deep and oaky, slowly the aromas widen to a panorama of creamy oak, understated cedar and eventually red berry fruit. In the mouth there’s sweet fruit, background ripe tannin and nicely lingering acidity – very well balanced – maybe the finish could be a little longer. This is very moreish and is drinking very well at the moment.
Rebuy – Yes

    Bill, I have six of the 2005 version. Would you like to swap something for three?
