Medium ruby color. Raspberry and rose smells, hints of leather. Flavors of raspberries and red cherries, trace of cranberry in the acid that well balances the fruit.
The next day I can detect no changes. I'll try to refrain from flights of organoleptic fantasy.
I ordered a $15.29 bottle of Drouhin 2005 Beaujolais-Villages. This was shipped by mistake. Lucky me! I'll treat this as the $15.29 wine it inadvertently is, in my case, and not the $24.99 wine the seller intends it to be. With that in mind, I’d gladly buy this again for $15.29, if anyone were offering.
While this isn't the product of one craftsman grower from one vineyard, demonstrating the qualities of that terroir, nor is it of awe-inspiring complexity, but this is a good honest Burgundy, and I like it very much.
