Truly great wine. I pulled this to be served with dinner. When first poured (without decant), the wine was ferociously tannic. With some air, the wine came into balance and showed incredible complexity, sappiness, freshness, and silky fruit. Long finish. On the following nights, the wine just got better and better. The last sips from this bottle gave a hint at just how good this is likely to be when it’s fully mature many years in the future. Truffles, earth, wet leaves, autumn in the air. Tremendous wine with amazing potential. This is one that every value conscious buyer of Burg should have in his/her cellar. Highly recommended.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
