Medium-plus cherry red. The nose starts quite 2003 in style, but gradually becomes a little more high/toned with violets. Good density and concentration. The tannins retain a little fur, the fruit being diffuse but mainly red. The acidity is just enough. Another impressive 03 bourgogne, even if the last glass seems a little tiring to drink. Poorer value vs the Bouchard, Giroud and Chanson.
Medium gold colour. A sweet, slightly honied nose. The honey is there on the palate too, only in accent though. Like the red version this wine is a very drinkable package with plenty of concentration wrapped into a very smooth package. Doesn’t come close to the focused intensity and quality offered by Leflaive at this level, or the enjoyment of the Chartron wine above – but it’s a very easy and tasty drink – again not inspiring value for the appellation though.
Medium-plus cherry red. The nose is mainly cherry, though shaded more to black – no really obvious oak. The palate is very well put together, no hard edges or vices. Tasty with medium concentration, not much tannin and reasonably good acidity. Very smooth and perfectly nice but I was left wanting more for the price if not the appellation
