Bought as part of a cache found by Nicolas Potel, found by Berry Bros. It's almost brick red, so you can tell even visually it's ready, or even past its best. I wanted to taste a really mature Burgundy, so I don't regret the price paid, but I'm not completely sure it's worth the entrance fee. There are tantalising vegetal, mushroom, truffle aromas, but as so often with red Burgundy, they don't really fully manifest on the palate. It's mainly fruit -- big, grapey, skinny, acidic fruit -- but for that, it's pretty amazing fruit, lasting too long on the tongue to be measured and hinting and teasing at more palpable essences of the vintage and the terroir. I'm not sure if I've caught this too late or too early; the logic says too late, but there's still a chewy tannic component that makes me think this could still age. Right now it's a fascinating wine, if not a perfectly balanced one.
