Why Big Red Diary?

1998 Roty Joseph, Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur BasMar. 2006
Beautifully clear medium ruby-red colour. The nose is a mix of faintly old oak and wonderfully pure red berry. Fresh palate shows very good acidity and slightly dry – but well – managed tannin. There’s an impression of oak on the palate too, in that slightly drying sense, though the fruit is well concentrated enough to cope. Actually reminds me of a 1996, and a reasonably forward one at that. Enjoyable, but not a ‘re-buy’.
