Burgundy, France. 13%
Given as a gift to me on the condition it not be cellared. Hence a review of a very young burgundy.
Monolithic wine. Very very concentrated, very tight yet huge hot flavours, but nothing jammy or confectionery like a grenache. Substantial tannin. Undrinkable without food. With food very enjoyable, power without fruity sweetness or high alcohol.
Very impressive, though I think I’d prefer a less hot vintage.
