2005 Joseph Faiveley Bourgogne
13% alc., $9. Imported by Wilson Daniels Ltd, St. Helena, CA. · This wine tends toward the dark side with black cherry and blackberry features throughout. A little earthy and oaky as well. The finish is noticeably tart with significant unresolved and drying tannins. I would put this away for a year or two to allow the tannins to settle down. Reviewed November 12, 2007 ARTICLE »
