2007 Roty Joseph, Marsannay Les OuzeloyApr. 2010
Also aromatically dark, but wstill wider than the last – really impressive. A wide-angle panorama of flavours, mouth-filling, this is very lovely. There’s plenty of structure but there’s balance too. A little spice and licorice as you head into the finish. High class Marsannay.
1999 Roty Joseph, Marsannay Les OuzeloyMar. 2006
Medium ruby colour. The nose is more like the 99 Roty bourgogne, a little estery and diffuse. This has a similar tartness to the fruit too, much less friendly than the Champs St.Etienne which at this stage I would certainly take ahead of this. Given about 1 hour from opening the texture improves, more fat and slightly less tart. Almost good concentration and some sweetness, but I’d still go for the St.Etienne.
