Appearance: fading red colour with slightly orange rim. Nose: mellowed raspberry, strawberry and redcurrant fruit with definite sous bois and mushroomy nose, but hugely perfumed all-round with developed aromas combining oak and Pinot Noir in this expression. Palate: immensely elegant on the palate with fine acidity, softened slightly chewy tannins and balanced alcohol. Very long. Conclusion: at a classic phase for drinking and the kind of Burgundy you normally only dream about (our thanks to James Simpson MW for providing the bottle!). Beautiful and we couldn’t get enough of it really! Was drinking well in late 2006, but should still be in good shape.

Grapefan Judging from the number of tasting notes you have just loaded, it sounds like that was quite a Burgundy tasting you had - wish I had been there!

moose Wow - certainly one to dream about. One day! I envy you this tasting. So interesting to contrast 2006 and 1997

edwardragg Thanks for your comments. Yes, this was a very special bottle, tasted a few years ago. I thought I'd add it to the A. F. Gros wines I've tasted more recently (have also added a reviews for A. F. Gros's 2006 and 2007 Richebourgs). Most of these notes come from a tour the Burgundians made of China in October. I'll be blogging on this in a review of the year kind of format (bit late, but the notes will still be relevant).
