Suggestion from July 29 2015
Wine: 2013 Aloxe-Corton "Les Fournières"
Producer: Domaine Tollot-Beaut
Comment: Here the slightly more expressive nose is both ripe yet cool with its ultra-fresh nose that is composed by pure essence of red cherry where additional aromatic latitude is present in the form of earth, spice, violet and a hint of game. I very much like the intensity and mid-palate density to the tautly muscular but not really rustic middle weight plus flavors that display a touch of salinity on the dusty, balanced an impressively persistent finish where an unusual amount of spice surfaces. This too is worth a look.
