Wine tasting note: 1995 Ropiteau Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves

1995 Ropiteau Beaune 1er Cru Les Greves

25th Aug 1998 GBP13 Burgundy Table Red

[Tasted Blind]
Pale, even, ruby.
Mute nose with notes of coffee and vegetation.
Light with lively, juicy, red berry fruit. Quite firm with crisp acids, dry tannins and a decent finish with some oak coming through.
[Scores: Fullness 1/5, Drinkability A - drink now, 80/100]
With Game:
This wine went reasonably well with all four dishes although the berry fruit was too dominant. The wine went very well with the rich chocolate sauce of the Wood Pigeon but was maybe a bit simple.
[ Grouse 2, Venison 2, Wood Pigeon 2, Rabbit 2]
