A delicious Bourgogne 26 years young

  • 1988 Domaine François Legros Bourgogne Les Poisots - France, Burgundy, Bourgogne (12/15/2014)
    A 26 year old Bourgogne in need of time - who would have thought?! Very bright with screechy acidity on the first night but settles down nicely overnight to reveal a lot of forest floor on the palate with chestnuts and violets. Long finish defined by fine grained tannins. Quite delicious and unexpectedly complex for a modest Bourgogne - apparently this is from a vineyard between MSD and Chambolle so probably more pedigree than the average Bourgogne. (91 pts.)
