Denis Philibert Les Brouillards Premier Cru 1996

I wasn't sure whether I liked this wine.  First, I did.  Then, I didn't.  Then, kinda I could see what I was thinking in the first place, and then there was that doubt again.  Pepper, plums, cherries and herbs on the nose were pleasant enough, and the palate had some pretty length, some tannins (still at 15 years old?) and a core of racy acidity.  It was the palate that left me unconvinced.  Was it just a bit too hard going?  On balance, ok, but it's not really worth seeking out.  7/10 (85 points).

Abv: 13%
Price: around $50
Would I buy it having tasted it?  No
