Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Rouge 2012
A discreet application of wood sets off more complex and slightly riper red and black pinot fruit scents that lead to subtly mineral-inflected flavors that also possess riper tannins. There is good complexity to the delicious yet serious and persistent finish. This isn't refined but you rarely see something this good in the context of the appellation.
