A bit prickly

I was advised to decant this for a while. I did and it seems to have worked (to a degree).

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Cras 1996, Domaine Roumier

A bright nose of fresh red fruit, raspberries and redcurrants. There is some earthy richness there as well. This shows a lot of harmony and elegance. When I first opened this the palate was very acidic, hard and charmless. However, with a couple of hours in a decanter the fruit has developed somewhat and it masks the acidity. Slightly. There is good fresh fruit there, but it is still a bit harsh.
