The Lion Roars

By

Just the other night our friends shared a bottle of 2004 Domaine Maume Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru “Lavaux St Jacques” while dining at VINO.  The wine was way aa2 maume 2too cold when first served & decanted, but one could still tell this was certainly a wine I really needed to pay attention to.  After it warmed up some, the nose was WOW–earthy, exotically spiced, sandalwood, intriguing musk scented–dramatic & provocative.

The ’04 vintage was lukewarmly received by the wine media.  And, I still see wine collectors dumping their ’04’s through various on line wine retailers.  Some say, “green stems”.  Others say “too lean & unripe tannins”.

I really like this wine, especially at this time of its life.  Why?  Someone just asked me the same question the other night, which I couldn’t answer fully then.

Imagine…..the MGM lion…..roaring….in all its glory.
