Bourgogne Rouge, Domaine Sylvain Cathiard 2015
**Note: from a parcel of vines that are in Flagey opposite Clos de Vougeot**
Mild reduction pushes the underlying fruit to the background but I doubt that it will persist. The sleek, cool and unusually refined middle weight flavors deliver outstanding depth and length for the genre. This utterly delicious yet serious effort is highly recommended.

The 2013 Bourgogne Rouge, which is aged in one-year old oak entirely, has a brisk nose with plenty of ripe strawberry and cranberry notes. The palate is medium-bodied with a confit opening: crushed strawberry and a touch of maraschino, brisk 'nn breezy with a pointed, citrus-tinged finish. Enjoy over the next two or three years, possibly longer.
