This wine presented extremely well, with an aroma of cherries and graphite, and a palate with cherries and length. I was a little worried about a slight bitter edge (though I thought I tasted it, I wasn't convinced it was there upon re-examination), and would have scored the wine even higher but for that. The pick of the red Burgundy bracket. 89 points.
