Part of a 1978 Burgundy tasting hosted by Acker at Cru on 11/11/09. Allen Meadows gave this wine an 85 and in the bottle it looked brownish. In glass it looked fresh. Big Spicy nose. Typical CDT in the mouth but more so, rich, earthy, dried tea and white pepper and almost creamy in texture. Very full and deep. Strong at an hour, faded at 2.
