Suggestion from June 29 2016
Wine: 2005 Beaune "Grèves"
Producer: Domaine Rapet Père et Fils
Comment: A still more elegant and refined nose combines red berry fruit, spice hints, earth, underbrush and the barest trace of the sauvage complements perfectly the refined and wonderfully pure medium full flavors that are serious, sweet, detailed, intense and dusty on the complex and very firmly structured finish where the tannins are prominent but well-integrated. A really beautiful wine that will amply repay mid-term cellaring.
