Default [TN] '05 Descombes Brouilly

Tonight, Jean came home in a bad mood and feeling lousy, so down to the
cellar for some red wine to lift her spirits.

2005 Georges Descombes Brouilly
nose: meaty, verging on Band-Aid, raspberry fruit
palate: medium body, deep fruit, rich mouthfeel, bright acidity

Dale, I misspoke recently when mentioning this wine (brought back from
Paris). I can see why Lyle Fass likened it to a Vosne-Romanee in his
blog: it's got the weight and fruit profile. But the fruit is still
recognizably Gamay and the tannins are soft enough that I didn't regret
opening it now. Will it get better? Dunno, but it's lovely now.
