Wine notes: 2005 Vincent Girardin Vosne-Romanée “Vieilles Vignes”
This was was lovely to drink. Very rich berries but delightfully rounded. A hint of sweetness in your mouth, a tinge of pepperiness in aroma. This had the richness that comes from well aged tannins but it was drinkable right out of the bottle.
PS: Off to Paris for a couple of weeks. Will be drinking more wines but not sommelier chosen. Let’s see what we manage to find on our own.
KLWine Notes:”This dense and charming wine was an absolute delight with a grilled steak last week. It’s supple, with pronounced black and some red fruit notes. The wine is structured in the mid-palate, with a terrifically long finish.”
Sub-appellation Chambolle Musigny – A charming village in the Côte de Nuits, north of Clos Vougeot. Mostly red (and very little white) wine from limestone-dominated soil makes the communes’ wine silky, with finesse rather than density. The wines are known for their aromatic purity and elegance. The Grands Crus are Musigny and Bonnes Mares.
