Why Big Red Diary?
1 notes
2003 Harmand-Geoffroy, Gevrey-ChambertinNov. 2005
Deep cherry-red colour. The nose is high-toned and just a little linear, the faint cherry fruit is edged with peppery notes. Drunk directly following Bernard Dugat-Py’s 2003 Bourgogne, there is good texture, but not so good as the Bourgogne, there is depth but not the concentration or perhaps the ripeness of the bourgogne, however, there is an extra burst of black fruit interest in this wine as it enters the finish. The finish does not quite a match the bourgogne for length. So 3-1 to the bourgogne? Not exactly, at ~15 Euros in the Leclerc supermarket this was less than half the price of the Dugat-Py Bourgogne – a sound, clean & tasty wine of some value.
