Sylvie Esmonin Bourgogne 2004

I bought this bottle during the recent Caveau Burgundy tasting @around 50 bucks.
Sylvie Esmonin Bourgogne 2004 is a modern style burgundian. The wines are more extracted and normally fermented with the stem to impart more flavour to the wines. On the nose the bourgogne is pretty intense, with nose of cedar, gamey and herbal character. Some greenish tannins on the palate but improved after few hours of decanting. Enjoyable if you like sligtly extracted style Burgundian Red at a decent price.
