Medium red colour. Ripe and fresh berries, perfumed, soft nose. Strawberries come out over time and the nose is on the ripe side of pinot. Tasty berry fruit, good tannins, medium acidity, dry. Still in its shell on the palate. Promises more in the future. Presently not as luxuriant as other 2005 red Burgundies. Wait until 2009 for it to gain some fatness and express more varied aromas.
