Again this was a big wine, rich and powerful with big ripe, black and red fruit, big toasty, spicy oak and rich savoury characters. This was a really grteat tasting, all the wines were very good and showed the amazing variety that is possible with just two grape varieties, two regions and two winemakers.
So very different from the Beaune that you could be forgiven for imagining it was not the same grape, in the same way that Syrah & Shiraz appear so very different.
With the red wines we enjoyed another excellent dish that Tom had prepared:
Rabbit casserole with prunes and wine.
