WTN: I am not throwing away my Ruchottes!

by David M. Bueker » Thu Nov 23, 2017 9:38 pm

2002 Domaine Georges Mugneret/Mugneret-Gibourg Ruchottes-Chambertin - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Ruchottes-Chambertin Grand Cru (11/23/2017)
Air, air, air, we gave this lots of air. It rewarded us with floral, Earth, spice, red fruit and cedar tones and a sensual palate presence. It did have a bit of back end grip, but that just added weight and presence, conveying its Grand Cru status. Four hours after opening I am sitting with the last few drops, and it is kaleidoscopic and haunting. This is what great Burgundy should be. It takes the expectations, sets them up, and knocks them down.

Clever title which I'm grateful for as I'd rather hear Hamilton in my head than ABBA, and a wine to envy.

Made all the worse because It's a small world, after all.
