Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge 2012
This is riper than its 2013 counterpart with a more deeply pitched nose of various dark berries, earth and a hint of oak. There is fine richness and volume to the velvet-textured flavors that possess particularly good concentration for a while of this level. Excellent quality here and while this will age it should also be approachable when young.
