Back to Burgundy
26 April 2016
Shell went straight back to Burgundy after the disappointment of the Bellaraine pinot.
Onto our third bottle before dinner. I hope Diane does not think this is a regular Saturday's drinking.
2010 Domaine Gason & Pierre Ravaut Ladoix Le Bois Roussot Premier Cru
Sour cherries, earth, truffles, rhubarb and the slightest hint of fennel.
The palate is masculine yet refined. The tannins are well balanced and the length is excellent.
A very good premier cru.
Drink now - 2026.
