2010 Maison Ilan Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Les Chaffots - France, Burgundy, Côte de Nuits, Morey St. Denis 1er Cru (7/20/2017)
-- cork pulled a couple hours before initial taste --
-- tasted non-blind over 3 days --
NOSE: super stanky on Day 1 --- either brett or reduction, or both. Oxidized by Day 3, despite being re-corked and put in fridge at end of Day 1 and also on Day 2.
BODY: earthy cherry color of light depth, with moderate bricking throughout; light to medium-light bodied.
TASTE: very acidic --- some V/A? apple skins --- a touch oxidized? smoky; entirely lacking in any "pure" fruit flavor; light tannin; somewhat spiky; just bad. This strikes me as being flawed in more ways than one. Staggering disappointment, given that I know exactly what went into barrel (and it was delicious!). A previous bottle was not flawed. Something(s) went wrong here … if this wine is going to be this variable then it's best to consider it a wine to Drink Now. NR (flawed)
