1973 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaumonts, Jean Grivot
A joy to sniff and sip! From the get go it has a wonderful nose of a mushroom forest, (over)ripe rowanberries, dried raspberries and compost. Very complex. Full of life even though it is fully mature. A high, pure nose. Kept on its toes all evening long. Very, very good.
The taste is delicate, mature and velvety with notes of dried raspberries, rosehips, parsnip and cooked rhubarb. A long, finely tuned, dry finish. Drinking perfectly with the chicken and on its own, soooo easy to empty this bottle. A great mature Burgundy.
