Medium deep red robe with browning edge. Touch hot on the nose; cedar, dark cherry, slightly meaty. Drying tannins up front, but full and round with warm mushroom, cherry and wood notes. Tannins dominate on finish. Past its best – aging gracefully though.
Monthelie, Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France
