TN 2004 Lafarge Bourgogne

Thursday Betsy made her standby duck recipe (legs slowbaked with a
panko/mustard crust), mashed potato-celeriac, a fennel/radicchio
salad, and some storebought escarole. Time for pinot, the 2004 Lafarge
Bourgogne. Black cherries, blck plum, loamy earth, a little bitter
chocolate. A bit tannic, but good length and acidity. This is one of
those 2004s that some found green, but I don't see it. Oops, I
thought this was first one I opened, but see my note on CT from Dec
saying leave for a few years. Good advice, I should have followed, but
this was tasty now. B+
Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency
