Burgundy is a wonderful thing if you can get some one to buy it for you. – A. J. Liebling
Lucky for ELV, Jeff Wyatt was in a wonderfully giving mood on Christmas Eve.
For you oenophiles out there, this Grand Cru was a revelation in inkiness, structure, hearty tannins, fruit and earth — all after 15 years in the bottle — with a deceptively ripe, grape-y attack that gave way to complex hints of spice, and a finish that lasted until next Tuesday.
It was the perfect wine for a cold winter’s night, made even more special by it being the only one in Marche Bacchus‘ collection.
ELV disdains the wine-scoring game, but would give the winemaker a solid “A” for this effort…especially when considering how well it has aged, and how well it will continue to do so….if there are any bottles left…which apparently there are not.
