Ouch, spiky

The final wine for christmas day. This one is a magnum.

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru les Gruenchers “Vieille Vigne” 2002, Domaine Fourrier en magnum

A bright nose of fresh, ripe fruit. This smells very concentrated and very Chambolle. It has good minerality and a reasonable degree of complexity. The palate is very ripe, but has very high levels of acidity; this is a bit prickly. The fruit is nice, though, and there is a good earthy tang on the finish, which is adequately long. This just seems a bit out of balance to be a really good bottle of Burgundy, but it is certainly drinkable and quite refreshing.
