Got a case of this as an interesting (NV Burgundy) and less expensive way to try wine from Lalou Leroy-Bize, the ex-DRC biodynamic winemaker. Funnily enough, was watching Jancis Robinson’s Wine Course whilst drinking this and Mme Leroy appeared, climbing mountains! Overall pretty good as a quaffing Burgundy, and well matured. Improved after a day. Garnet core, with a narrow brick-tawny rim. Light depth. Fairly intense, evolved nose: toasty oak, leaf compost and fresh pipe-tobacco over raspberry, cherry & dried cherry aromas. Light bodied, with notable acidity and a tannic grip gently emerging at the finish. Smoky palate over sweet, dried fruit, with a hint of bitterness at the finish.
