Domaine Albert Morot, Beaune Les Bressandes 1er Cru 1999

Domaine Albert Morot, Beaune Bressandes 1er Cru 1999

Medium cherry red color.  On the nose, a bit chunky and rustic: black raspberry rôti, some herb and spice undertones.  Some oak.  Medium weight and body to the palate.  Good balance and acidity, less so grip.  A relatively clean and honest Beaune Bressandes 1er Cru.  Not too brutish as Beaunes can be but lacking a bit in the areas of concentration, charm, lusciousness.  A good wine but given its a ’99 we were hoping for a little more.  Now – 2015.
