Giroud Nuits Perrieres 1988

Imported by Veritas Imports, Beverly Hills CA.

Garnet core, amber to the rim.  His gestalt is borne back from an antique land; he plays the gourd banjo, always wears a hat.  Ardently mineral: Perrière is a synonym with Carrière, or quarry.  There’s a gossamer delicacy to the fruit, made willful by ’88s fine acidity; his abiding flavors run to blood orange and glacé citrus peel.  An anachronism in the best way; he flies straight and true.  Not much longer now.  Fully mature; drink soon.
