“This is one old Burgundy that won’t fade in a carafe, so don’t hesitate to decant it, and be sure to use a good large glass. The wine has a youthful, saturated, deep ruby color, with flashes of bright mahogany at the edge. And the nose is a moving target; endlessly complex and exotic, with aromas of dried cranberries, strawberry preserves, chiodini mushrooms, and freshly turned earth, all moving in and out of the foreground as the wine evolves in the glass. On the palate, the flavors echo the nose: sweet and pure on entry, with a warm, concentrated core that grows more and more voluminous with time, yet remains wonderfully firm, fresh and vibrant. And the long fine-grained finish leaves you wishing it would never end. This is not like drinking a young wine. The bottle seems ageless, as if in suspended animation, and much too small. Drink now – 2025. But no need to wait longer; this one is fully mature.” — Moore Brothers Wine Co., Brooklyn
