And so it begins (again)

Back on the booze. Hooray! And it is Burgundy, what more could a chap ask for?

Morey-Saint-Denis “Clos Solon” Vieille Vigne 2001, Domaine Fourrier

Yum, this smells quite ripe and concentrated. Good cherry and strawberry fruit there, too. There is a creamy earthiness/minerality to it which is very pleasing. This is the nose of a top village wine. On the palate the tannins are refined and silky, there is lovely fruit and a real mineral complexity to the finish. The acidity level is perfectly balanced. For a village wine this has got some serious length. This will probably age for another seven years or so, but I am enjoying it quite a lot now. Good stuff.

Hooray for Burgundy! Especially good Burgundy, it is one of the nicest things there is.
