Domaine Vincent Girardin 1999 Maranges 1er Cru Clos des Loyeres

Bright, mid-depth robe, slight amber edge. Nose initially fungal but blows off and fruit emerges – lovely florals. Age showing but elegant, delicate florals and red fruits. Palate reflects nose: fruit, florals with forest flavours. Mid length finish. Nice wine. Decant this one.

Maranges, Burgundy, France
