2006 Givry Clos de La Brûlée by Domaine Masse Pere et Fils

On the recommendation of our local wine expert here in Fontaines, we picked up a bottle of Clos de La Brûlée red from Domaine Masse.  While still young as a 2006,  this red showed an unusual character of being a bit tight, but immediately presented a nearly candy-like, hot-fruit intensity….far different than most Givry reds and immediately memorable.  Some may taste a bit of Kirsch-like flavor (which some like or dislike).  It’s hotness eased as it stayed open for a while, but the intense flavors persisted.  The finish was not as long as you might expect for a flavor so robust, but this wine is a definitely independent personality in a field of often “me-too” wines in Burgundy.  Very interesting and definitely craft-made.
