This wine has featured on the Community pages several times in different threads. I was asked (flatteringly) to produce a WSET style tasting note. So here it is with some additional comments:
Appearance: Pale Ruby
Nose: Medium+ intensity of raspberry, cherry, strawberry, red cherry, redcurrants, some spice and violets.
Palate: the wine is dry, high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, tannins are medium+ astringent, although quite fine, with a bitterness that is unpleasant after about half an hour of the bottle being open
medium intensity flavours of raspberry, redcurrants, and sour cherry.
The finish is medium -
The balance is upset by a bitterness on the palate, grippy astringent tannins which after a while mask the fruit which, to be fair, is ripe and has a reasonable level of concentration. The fruit flavours are generic, but show no potential to develop tertiary flavours. There are no secondary flavours,
With a medium- finish, there is no complexity or real intensity (save that on the nose it has good medium+ intensity which fails to deliver on the palate). The wine is acceptable but no more.
Suitability for further ageing:
The inherent short finish, lack of intensity and bitterness suggest that this wine will not develop in the bottle and is not suitable for further ageing.
Further comments: when I first opened the bottle and tried the wine my notes were more complimentary but as time went on this bitterness/unripeness started to show through. I have tasted many far superior Bourgogne rouges, notably Gachot-Monnot, Hudelot-Noellat and Ghislaine Barthod, also Galeyrand.
In my experience Burgundy recently bottled often shows very well (at all levels) but this one is at the moment raw and unpleasant. I am not giving it the benefit of the doubt.
