1999 Burguet Alain, Gevrey-Chambertin En ReniardJul. 2005
Deep core of ruby-red. The nose starts with a burst then settles to a relatively subdued faint top-end and deeper, black-edged cherry, given time the nose becomes purer and redder and very nice indeed. Fresh acidity, very good density and well covered velvetty tannins. The wine is relatively long and quite sophisticated – it’s actually a bit of a smoothie – don’t get carried away though, this is very young – leave it at least another 3 to 5 years, it will be worth it. Easily the nicest Burguet of my aquaintence – a very good villages.
