Default 2006 Anne Gros Vosne Romanee Les Barreux

We had a mushroom tart for dinner last night so I opened a wine from a
case lot that I purchased on release 2006 Anne Gros Vosne Romanee Les
Barreaux. Dark burgundy red in the glass with fairly intense
aromatics. Black dirt, blackberrys and black cherry on the nose with
a fairly stong floral component. Fairly straightforward on the palate
with somewhat concentrated fruit profile. Very bright red, blackberry
and a touch of smoke. A fair amount of acidity under the fruit and
stiff tannins on the finish make me think it needs at least five more
years. Decent for a village wine.
