The headline is the question asked at the tasting where I took the first bottle. A 1990 Burgundy? Drinking wonderfully? Deep cherry red. Some smoke on the nose, with the red fruit. Beautiful balance on the palate, with the fruit and tannins present, but integrated. We took the second bottle to a dinner at a terrific restaurant - the wine outdid the food, and that was not easy. Superb.
I was very excited to try this 21 year old wine. It did not disappoint me. With notes of blackberry and smoke, it was smooth on the palate with a lasting finish that lingered without biting back.
A way longer breathing time many hours before serving, a longer rest after delivery, and controlled temps until opening helped produce very positive remarks at this Winter dinner served with game hen. This is the wine that guests kept pouring 'til gone.
I though tI would try a 20 year old pinot/burgundy to see what it was like. To me it did not rate worth the money.
Very underwhelming - disappointed
While the bouquet makes you feel like you just had a sip of a luscious wine, unfortunately this wine seems to be quite a bit past its prime.
I would have given a second star if this had not been a $95 bottle. Vintages that are past their life cycle will sometimes differ much bottle from bottle, so there is still hope that my other bottle will somehow live up to the hype (provided I drink it very soon). But right now I 'm facing yet another costly Burgundian disaster.
At least for rethe first two bottles. Wish I could give it a better review.
